A Love Affair With Primark


I'm aware the title of this post is a little bit overdramatic, but I couldn't exactly call it 'I quite like Primark at the moment' could I? Doesn't quite have the same ring to it. But that's what this post is basically about. I quite like Primark at the moment, well actually I bloomin' love it. It seems to have happened all of a sudden and I don't know if it's because I've just been going in more often or if the stuff is actually just reallllllly good right now. Maybe both. I have found myself wandering over there in my lunch break more times than I've needed to and usually I end up buying something because it's so cheap I can actually justify it for once and not feel all that guilty (not that I, or anyone for that matter, should ever feel guilty for buying clothes, but for some reason I usually do.) 

Thinking about it, maybe the title of this blog post is rather fitting because what I have with Primark is a bit of a love affair. When it first opened in Hull it was the place to shop because hey look I can get a pair of flowery leggings for a fiver and also some white platform heels for a tenner and aren't I just gonna look the bommmb at the next sixth form party? Fast forward a few years and I only really went there if I needed something cheap for a fancy dress party or if I needed work shoes that were going to get wrecked within weeks anyway. While I was at uni I stayed well clear of the Primark when I was shopping in central London because it was always so busy and overwhelming and I just didn't have the patience to look round it. So although I wouldn't say I ever hated it, I definitely fell out of love with it for a while.




Fast forward again to today and as I said, I'm, bloomin' loving it so I thought I'd share my favourite recent purchase on here, which is this jumpsuit. It's that check pattern that I love, which may or may not be called plaid? I'm not sure, definitely don't come to me for any fashion lingo, but I like it. It's also perfect for layering, in fact I imagine it's supposed to be layered and it's roomy enough to fit a jumper underneath if you wanted to. I actually didn't feel too cold braving a culotte jumpsuit at this time of year, but because this one goes so well with black I feel like it'd be fine with black tights worn underneath anyway so it should be wearable right into winter. I layered it underneath this black polo neck on this occasion, but I can imagine it looking great over a white tee too and possibly even layered over my fave orange jumper.

  3. I am a massive Primark fan (maybe too much...), it's so dangerous when you work close to one and you go out browsing on your lunch break isn't it! The jumpsuit is gorge and I'm quite disappointed that the Norwich one hasn't had it in yet. If there's enough room it looks like it might be a great combo with our orange jumper (lol made it sound like we have one between us) xxx

  4. Ooh I love it. I really wish we had a good primark near us- I rarely see anything because it's just so unorganised! Although I did go to the one in Harrogate a few years ago and it was the BEST ONE EVER! Maybe I need a trip back...

  12. Primark kind of has a Marmite thing going on - you either love it or hate it! Either way, you look really lovely in this jumpsuit Amy; great choice to pair the simple black roll neck underneath :)

  14. I love this outfit, the jumpsuit is gorgeous! The location looks beautiful as well, so autumnal! I'm pretty much avoiding Primark and only ever go there for homeware, the two Primarks on Oxford Street are so busy. And for some reason I always end up going to Oxford Street on Saturdays although I should know better haha xx

  19. To be honest I do really adore Primark, everything's super affordable which means I get to stuff my closet with more things haha! I think Primark is really underrated as a fashion store, their products can be really nice at a pretty decent quality.
