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!!

GUESS WHO WENT TO PRIMARK AGAIN…?

So as you may already know from my post last week – Primark Last Night – I did a spot of shopping last week. WELL… On Sunday I returned to Primark on Oxford Street to return the dungarees I’d bought as sadly they are not made for tall people and not particularly comfortable in the downstairs region.

So there I am, innocently popping into Primark to return said dungarees, when I walked out with even more items – why does this always happen!?

So I bought a cute unicone Tshirt for £3, a maxi skirt for £5, some over-the-door heart hooks (below) for £2.50 and a Cactus print (below also) for £5. HAPPY DAYS – I had totaled LESS than the amount I spent on the dungarees anyway! WOOP!

BUT while I was there I also spotted LOTS of other lovely bits that were super tempting… As the kind, thoughtful soul I am I thought I would share them with you to fuel your browsing addictions…

My favourite (as always) was the Home Department. There are some seriously beautiful (and totally affordable) finds there and they’re all so on trend!pri home

 

  1. Cactus Print – £5 –  botanicals are so in this season too! This is now hanging in our lounge…
  2. 2 Pack Floral Round Storage Boxes – £4 – Love these colours and floral patterns, well done Primark!
  3. Pink Fiesta Paisley Cushion – £5 – cute cute cute!
  4. Over-door Heart hooks – £2.50 – these are actually super sturdy.
  5. Black Embroidered Pom Cushion – £7 – I looooove this one *insert heart eyes emoji here*.

I also spotted some beautiful lace items in the Lingerie and Nightwear sections… Perfect for a cheaper option if you’re going for the lace bralette and over sized shirt look!

Left – Black Guipure Lace Bralette – £8
Right – Black Longline Lace Bralette Set – £4
Soooooo pretty!!

They have also started to bring out their autumn and winter clothing, so there are lots of lush jumpers and wonderful coats appearing. I’m feeling too summery to get all excited about those at the moment, but go take a look in-store and let me know if you find any gems!

Put your best wedge forward

This season, wedges are the way.  Why try and walk in stilettos if it’s not easy?  Not only do wedges look great, they are also so much easier to walk in, while also elongating your pins.  These wedges will add instant pzazz to any outfit, day-time or night-time.  The key for this season is keep it strappy, keep it bold with prints or brights and keep it high.  Perfect with maxi dresses or mini dresses, or they will look great with a simple top and black leggings.

1. Worship my wedge in Coral – £60.00 – Office.  2. Steve Madden Multi Colour Peep Toe Boots – £74.99 – New Look.  3. Black caged wedges – £50.00 – River Island.  4. ALDO Rinks Floral Wedge Sandals – £65.00 – ASOS.  5. Fuchsia Feather Print Heel Wedges – £24.99 – New Look.  6. Orange caged Wedges – £50.00 – River Island.  7. Steve Madden Floral Aztec Print Wedges – £79.99 – New Look.  8. Bright Orange Floral Print Heel Wedges – £24.99 –  New Look.  9. Black wedge Sandals – £60.00 – River Island.

Even though I’m in love with all of these shoes, I will be sticking to flats, because I’m already far too tall, but for the rest of you, happy shoe shopping!!
