I was in the UK last week, and I did just a teensy bit of shopping on the last day I was there. I mostly bought stuff in Primark (if you're been reading my blog for a while you'll know how crazy I can go in Primark, since we don't have it where I live) but I also got a couple of things in New Look for a change.
For this haul I decided to do something slightly different and actually put together an outfit for each new item of clothing I bought, because I usually explain how I would style it anyway.
Stripy oversized collared Tshirt from Primark, £6
I adore this top, it's really baggy and comfy even though I got it in a 6, and it's long enough to be worn over leggings. You know when you see something in a shop, and you just HAVE to buy it because you know instinctively that it's something you'll wear again and again as it's such a versatile piece? Yep.
Tapestry dress from New Look, £14.50
Until about last year, I owned about three dresses: a really casual one for the beach, a formal one and one I could actually wear as normal clothes. But then I suddenly got a bit fixated on dresses, and ended up buying quite a lot in a short space of time (possibly an understatement). I love this one because it's so boho and summery, and has this whole tapestry effect thing going on - and it was on sale, which is always a plus!
Patterned trousers from Primark, £8
Patterned top from Primark, £4
I was actually looking to pick up a couple of simple patterned tops, so I was glad to find this one. It doesn't come across all that great on camera, but it's nice irl, and above all extremely versatile.
Floral sheer top from New Look, £17.99
I've been seeing so many sheer kimono type things around lately, and that was originally what I thought this was when I spotted it. In fact it's a kind of batwing top, which I think will be great for those warm summer days when a cardigan or jacket is too much but you still want a bit of warmth.
