Another Spring Primark Haul

Hey Everyone!

As promised (if a little late) here is what I've bought in Primark recently. This is quite a random selection of bits and bobs: they're mostly for summer/ holidays. You see I went into Primark before work a few weeks ago and I wanted pretty much everything I saw. But you know what always happens in these situations. I'd forgotten my purse. So, the next week I went in: card at the ready, and treated myself.

The first thing I spotted was this ditsy floral playsuit. Its very floaty on top (usually the opposite of what I'd go for) but it was a good price (about £10) and I'm a lover of playsuits in general, so I just had to get it. Its actually very nice on too. A great thing about it is the black which means I'll be able to put it over a pair of tights until the weather warms up a bit. I also picked up the navy, floral, pyjama-like shorts for £4 (ish- sorry, in all honesty I can't be bothered moving to find the receipt). They are super comfy and casual and will be perfect for warm days. Next up, a pair of white jeans which I've been coveting for a good while now. I think white jeans are a bit of a love/ hate item and I really want to love them. I think they're great at this time of year and I think they look great on other people so I'm going to make myself love them on me too. They're not a perfect fit, but they're good enough, and for £10 they're good value anyway. I then got this bodycon pale pink skirt with black lace for £3. Primark have a lot of skirts on sale at the minute so definitely have a look. I'm usually a skater skirt wearer all the way but since this was on sale I thought I'd pick it up in case I fancy a change. It is nice on I just feel like I need some sort of suction device to pull me in and smooth me out to make it wearable. Last up, this black and white aztec top. I think this was £5 and its my favourite item from the haul. The collar is trimmed with a little faux soft leather and the sleeves are a really unusual length (between short and medium) but they're soo cute. This top was positioned next to bright yellow handbags and I was very tempted to get one because I want something of that hue but then I said to myself 'Julz, do you really need another bag when you have just bought that bad boy of a Zara mini city bag?' The answer was of course no. 

So there we have it. This haul isn't as coordinated colour-scheme-wise as my last (here) but ah well- I feel like these have ensembles already awaiting in my wardrobe. Something I haven't done in ages is take like an hour to go through my wardrobe to put together new random outfits. I've put myself in the mood for it now. If only I had time!

I always end on a question related to the post, but today I'm going to be different since I have a creative writing piece due and I have no idea what to write about. Since you are all creative geniuses and give me inspiration all the time:

any ideas about what I can write a reflective essay/ drama/ poem on? lol
