I'm not gonna lie, I don't usually have much time for Primark. They're often my go to for shoes and accessories, but in terms of actually foraging through the clothes and then queuing to get into the eau-de-feet scented changing rooms just to find that all the clothes make me look like a balloon? Not for me.
However there are only so many bloggers I can see looking amazing in Primark wonders before I end up in there myself and seeing as it's so close to my work, it'd have been rude to not give it a chance. Turns out there was a sale on when I went and although, as predicted, many of the clothes did in fact make me look like a balloon, I walked out with these two gems at only £5 each.
The check trousers
Trousers - Primark | Top - New Look | Blazer - New Look | Boots - Truffle Collection | Bag - Primark
If I was to have put money on any of the items I took into the changing rooms making me look like a balloon it would have been these, but they're actually kinda flattering plus they're really light and airy so perfect for this time of year. The check pattern goes with most things, but I decided to keep it simple here with a plain black vest top and a black cotton blazer - yes I'm that girl wearing all black in summer. I also wore my, you guessed it, black heeled ankle boots that I love.
I love the pleated trend and this dress perfectly encompasses that mixed with my rekindled love for 90s fashion. It would look nice for a night out without a top underneath, but LOL when do I ever go on a night out so I popped this cute white tee underneath which only makes it look even more 90s. Topped off with white trainers of course.
Have you found any bargains in Primark recently? What do you think of my finds?
