FASHION// Primark Haul

Being half way through my exams, I decided that it was time to get some serious retail therapy in order to sooth the soul. One of my hauls recently - I do plan to blog about the others when the items arrive - has been from the glorious Primark, and as my wardrobe is in dire need of a summer makeover, I settled on purchasing the following...


Striped Wrap-Around Semi-Crop Top




I am a huge fan of the nineties look, and so when I saw this in my local Primark, I knew that I had to bring it home with me! I adore the print - I'm often one who sticks to a certain few colours, such a as black, burgundy and dark green, when selecting clothing, and so this white and deep-grey combo was definitely venturing into unknown fashion territory for me. But overall, I'm very glad I picked it up and I'm super excited to wear this in the summer with shorts, knee high socks, chunky flat-forms and necklaces and rings galore!


Striped Cut-Out Shoulder Crop Top


I've just noticed that there seems to be a tiny bit of a "Striped" theme in this haul! I picked up this top simply because I adore the cut-out shoulders style; I find it incredibly flattering for my figure as sometimes I struggle with finding tops that suit me due to my larger...assets! I also love the lightweight feel to this top - it's perfect for summer and can be worn with or without a bralette underneath, meaning that it's very versatile too.


Super High-Waisted Skinny Jeans in Blue Acid Wash and Indigo


These jeans are life-changers! They are beautifully made, incredibly soft and stretchy for ultimate comfiness and only £10! Not to mention that they're pretty much exact dupes for the Topshop Joni Jeans which are around £38 each - if you're on a budget and need some new jeans, I definitely would suggest a trip to Primark. The only minor fault I would point out with these, is that the sizing is crazy! Both of these are a size 14, as you can see, and one fits perfectly, but the other pair is absolutely massive! I don't know why, but in the future I would tell myself to try these on, and I would definitely recommend that anyone who's interested in purchasing these does too... talk about bizarre!


Knee High Socks in Pastel Blue and Pastel Pink


How cute are these!? I saw them and, being knee-high socks mad, I just couldn't leave them behind; the quality of them is incredible for £2 a pop, and I cannot wait to wear them when the weather finally warms up here in England.

Cleated Platform Coral Patent Heels


Aren't these just stunning! These were the last pair left in stock, and as they were my size I knew that that was fate telling me to pick them up! The quality is, again, wonderful, and I am sure these will get a lot of wear in the next upcoming months.

It feels so good to finally be blogging again, and I really hope that you enjoyed this haul post, as I loved composing it. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these items, and whether you have any other recommendations for me for the next time that my debit card can manage a trip to Primark! I'm half way through my GCSEs and so I do still have a mountain of revision to do, but as it's the half term holidays I plan to create as much content as I can for you all, so that I don't end up leaving another massive gap between posts. As always, thank you so much for sticking with me; it means the world and I love you all loads!
