Spring Haul Ft. Primark & New Look

Hey Everyone!

Can you see it? Can you feel it? CAN YOU FEEL IT? Kidding sorry I need to control these random outbursts into song. Anyway- spring is in the air WOOPEE!! I can't explain the happiness it brings me to see a little bit of sun coming in my window- hello bright, clear pictures and a fresh looking room. With the arrival of spring, new season lines land in shops and before you know it you're at the till with an armful of pastels and florals. 

While in Edinburgh at the weekend, I went to Primark and New Look and picked up a few bits. I managed to restrain myself and not go crazy but I got some lovely items that have brightened up my whole wardrobe and will drag me out of dark coloured jeans and jumpers (even if it is still a bit really chilly).
Bright Floral Tee- £3 (bargain!)
Mint Quilt Top - £6
Floral Floaty Blouse- £8
Mint Necklace- £5

New Look:
Pink Jumper- £14.99 (£13.50 w/ student discount)

I'm so excited to wear these as I haven't had a chance yet. It is so sad- these days I wear school uniform Monday to Friday and work uniform Saturday and Sunday- I'm gonna forget how to dress myself in normal clothes! 

I have a statement necklace from Primark already but its a bit big (hence the statement I guess) and formal for everyday wear, so I wanted to get my hands on one that was a bit more demure and that would match more of my clothes. I thought that since this one matched my new purchases, it would probably match quite a lot of other stuff in my wardrobe (I tend to go for the same kind of thing- anyone else do that?). I'm in love with the mint quilt top- its so soft. I'm also super excited about the pink jumper. Not only did I get student discount, but I've wanted a pink jumper for ages and it will keep me warm in the transition from winter- spring (and probably to summer too, let's face it- Scotland is cold).

I've had a lovely little night of drinking tea and participating in the #bbloggers chat. The twitter community are always so inspiring and happy. I'd better get back to my English dissertation redraft now (eek) -I only need to cut out another 1,000 words. Who said I was a rambler? I should also do today's installment of the 30 Day Ab & Squat Challenge- I have actually made it to day 30!!! Though today consists of 40 sit ups, 100 crunches and 100 squats. I have a stretcher on stand by, don't worry.
