PRIMARK: PREMIUM PJS AT A PETITE PRICE

I just can’t get enough of Primark at the moment! I went through a phase of massively turning my nose up at it and everything it stands for. While I still disagree with many of their ethics and would rather not think about where their products come from, I have to admit that there have been so many amazing fashions in there recently.

My recent favourites include their sexy new bralettes and lingerie ranges with all the lace you could ever want. And yesterday when I was shopping I spotted even more beautiful lace and silky lovelies for the ever pleasing price Primark offers. This time it’s all premium looking PJs – and I have to admit that the quality isn’t totally awful either! Take a look at some of the beauties that could be yours – and all less than £12!!

XOXO, GOSSIP GIRL

Please excuse me, I am having a total fan girl moment… I saw these pop up as an ad on my Facebook timeline and my immediate reaction was ‘OMG NEED!’

As a HUGE Gossip Girl fan and general Blake Lively adorer – she can do no wrong in my eyes – these sweaters are the DREAM. I love Rad‘s products and have always wanted one of their slogan jumpers, but I just didn’t know which one to pick. Now I’ve seen these, I have my heart set! Plus the fact that I love Serena and my bestie loves Blair. It just works out perfectly!!

If you’re not feeling the sweaters, no worries, there are beanies, caps and socks to fawn over too!

BE SEXY FOR LESS WITH PRIMARK

You know I love Primark. I wish I didn’t and I know it’s corrupt and all the rest, but a broke girl still wants to look nice!! And there are even more reasons to look nice with some of Primark’s new lacy and satin offerings…

I popped into Primark at Marble Arch yesterday after a lovely bike ride around Hyde Park in the sunshine – it was rude not to as I was just a few feet away! And while I was purchasing a few new knitwear staples, I spotted so many beautiful bralets and PJs which are sure to make any girl feel feminine and lovely whether it’s to impress their man or themselves! Take a look at some of my favourites, available in most stores…

TREND ALERT! AUBERGINES, PLUMS & BURGUNDYS

Autumn is all about rich, deep and lovely smooth colours. Jewel tones and cosy comforts are a must!

This season it’s all about the deep aubergines, dark plums and burgundys. It’s such a great, versatile colour which looks great on all skin tones and hair colours and it’s wintery without being too dark and dreary! Wear it with a matching deep lip for a dramatic look or with denim and some cosy tweed for a sophisticated casual style.

Whether its a dark moody aubergine purple, or a bright pop of dark wine red, this is definitely the colour to be seen in this season! And out of the kindness of my heart, I’ve looked around for the best plumy coloured goodies out there on the high street at the moment – and all under £60! – Enjoy!

WINTER WEDDINGS – WHAT TO WEAR?

While for the most of us, the mad rush of summer weddings is coming to the end of the season, there is still the odd rouge winter wedding approaching… And just because it’s cold outside, it doesn’t mean we can’t be totally chic!

I personally love black and denim for autumn and winter, which aren’t totally wedding appropriate… But the good news is that there are some gorgeous navy and jewel tone gowns out there to add a splash of colour! Plus you can totally wear black to a wedding now, as long as it’s got a little pzazz – like embroidery or print.

So, I’ve trawled my favourite shopping sites for some lovely dresses that are wedding appropriate while also being a little more covered up to keep that chill away, or something you can team with tights without feeling like a wally! Oh, and I’ve split them into budget categories too, because Christmas is coming y’all and who doesn’t love a bargain?!
