Home Time Haul...

Every time I make a trip home to see my mum we always go for a shopping trip together so this is simply the outcome from one of those trips!

 Coated Jeans-newlook(sale)-£11.00
Maxi Skirt-Primark-£10.00

I really wanted a new pair of jeans and black is my go to colour so when I found these coated jeans in the sale at newlook I got very excited as I was going to buy them full price but by the time I got round to it they were out of stock. They are a perfect alternative to plain jeans and just add a bit of interest to a basic outfit. The maxi skirt is a bit of an odd story its actually a size 12 and as a size 6-8 I would recommend trying it on before you buy if your interested in picking one up.

bikini-Primark-total £8.00

When I spotted (pardon the pun) this spotty dark blue/purple and white bikini in Primark instantly knew it was coming home with me! I have been searching for one just like this for months. I love the retro almost 50s feel to it and for £8.00 for top and bottoms how can you go wrong. All I need now is an excuse to wear it.

Crop Tops-Primark(sale)-£3.00 to £1.00
Mint tee-H&M-£6.99

These little crop tops were a steal at £1.00 and I already own two others they're the perfect thing to put on with  high waisted shorts on a hot day. I also picked up this plain mint t-shirt. I have been looking for one for ages and noticed this one out the corner of my eye in H&M and couldn't resist it, I really have an obsession with mint and red at the moment.

Knitted Black Vest-H&M-£7.99
Peplum Top-Primark-£8.00

I bought another knitted vest from H&M the white one was everywhere on YouTube for a while and after purchasing it I had to buy the black and the orange version for my mum because she loved it too! The peplum trend is something I'm planning on doing a sort of look book for soon and this is the top I'm going to style. I was amazed at the quality of this top its something I would expect to find in Topshop for £30.00+ not Primark for £8.00. It has to be one of the best buys of this year.


  1. I love everything you bought! And I was planning on buying an identical peplum top to that in Topshop, so now I'm definitely heading to Primark instead!
