Shop til you drop HAUL #2

So as you will have been able to tell from yesterdays post, I did go a bit crazy in Primark which is why I had to split my haul into posts- Clothing and Accessories. If you haven’t already make sure you check out yesterdays post.

DSC_01771. Phone Clutch £4. I literally threw this clutch into my basket as soon as I spotted it. I first saw this clutch in Topshop HERE but of a different pattern but I debated whether to get it. And boy am I glad I didn’t buy it because this one is just as nice and a fraction of the cost. It has a nice little space for your phone to slot into yet also a place to put your money. Its just so practical.

2. ‘Pool party’ beach clutch £2. I love this. I realise that my holiday is a few months of yet but I want to be prepared. Maybe even start packing 3 months in advance. i don’t know about you but I am incredibly protective of my things – I can not stand it if my phone, ipod, laptop etc gets scratched or is in a dangerous situation where it might get scratched which is why I have like a million different cases for my different things. When i’m on holiday especially, I hate leaving my phone out where it might get wet, dropped or scratched. This year my ipad will be my companion and I think I would have a break down if anything happened to it. So I bought this little pool party clutch bag. I just think its so practical as I can keep my different things in here to protect them from the sun and any splashing. In the mean time though I will be using it as my ipad pouch and showing it off for a bit. (Oh and the colour is just beautiful – and it matches my towel).

3. White diamante sandals £4. So after writing these past two posts I realise I may have been in a bit of a holiday mood. I’m just too excited and love buying things for the summer. I’ve been searching everywhere for some new sandals as I’ve worn most of mine out and only have one pair left but they aren’t mutual enough to wear with EVERY outfit I have so I was in need of a nice white pair – and I finally found them. I think these will look so pretty underneath linen pants and with shorts – and especially great with a nice tan. I haven’t even tried these on yet so I’m hoping they will fit comfotably.

4. Floral headband £2. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I have recently rekindled my obsession with floral hair accessories. However, I decided I wanted to mix it up a bit as all my floral hair things are just little clips and since flowers are my little ‘thing’, I thought I’d buy a nice headband with flowers on. They had quite a few flower accessories in atm but I fell in love with this one as it is so cute yet subtle. I think it will look so pretty with my hair up or down, and will add a nice look for the days I want my hair kept off my face.

5. China print scarf £4. I’ve also become obsessed with china print clothing at the moment. I already have a china print blouse and dress but I love this scarf. It will just add a nice touch to an outfit as its just so pretty. I’ve been wearing it every day since I got it and it really helps complete any outfit. I love it.

What accessories have you bought? Are you in the summer mood? Obsessed with the china pattern trend?

Shop til you drop HAUL #1

So I went shopping.. again. I thought i’d share with you what i’d purchased mainly from primark. However, I’m going to split it into two different parts: Clothes, and Accessories – So make sure you check back tomorrow.

So as you can see, I bought quite a lot from Primark this weekend..Image

1. Acid wash dungarees – £13. I’ve been wanting some of these for so long and just could not resist when I saw a huuuuge collection of them at the doors. I can’t wait for some warm weather to arrive so I can wear them, until then i’ll be sticking on some tights underneath.

2. Light wash long Dungarees – £17. This item is by far my favourite purchase of the week. I am obsessed. I innitially went shopping for a shorter pair, but when I spotted these I fell in love and for just £17, I couldn’t say no. I first went shopping to buy some short dungarees from topshop which were £30 and for the same price I got two pairs. Not bad

3. Towel – £7. So this was a sort of instinct buy. My friend had one of these like 3 years ago on her holiday and I was so jealous. I personally just thought they were genious as i’m forever clipping my towel around myself on holiday and this just saves me the effort. I love it and the bright colours have completely got me into the holiday spirit. Can not wait for spaiiiin.

4&5. Two Bright Crop Tops – Yellow and White – £3 each. I’d seen these tops in River Island a while ago but thought they were far too much money at £10 each. And so, when I saw them in Primark for less than 1/3 of the cost I just had to buy them. I tried them on earlier and they look so good with both my dungarees and in the winter I will be throwing them on over a nice vest top. Eeeep

Have you been shopping recently? Got yourself a few bargains? Joined the dungaree hype?

Remember to return tomorrow for part two of my rather big haul.
