Life | Recent Primark Picks

I really think Primark are bringing it at the minute, they're competing with the likes of Topshop and New Look so well. As a result, their prices have increased slightly (isn't it weird paying £10 for a dress in Primark is outrageous, but in Topshop £40 is spent on the same without batting an eyelid?).

I recently perused the aisles of my local primark and picked up a couple of really lovely bits. These are going straight into outfits for around my birthday, I'm excited to wear them!

This lovely shift dress was the aforementioned £10 and is a lovely silky material. A shift dress hides multiple sins and has plenty of room for an expanding food baby, so I'll be wearing this to my favourite american diner that my family and I always go to on any of our birthdays! Seriously the portions are huge and so delicious. 

I never, ever thought that I'd pick up a polo neck and fall in love, but the material of this is so so soft, and blue is my colour- I couldn't resist. It's short in length, almost cropped, which I love because it means I can tuck it into my favourite leather mini skirt and not have that awkward bump over my bum where the material ruches up. This little gem was also £10 :)

Okay so this one isn't a birthday outfit as such but I am such a sucker for pajamas I literally couldn't leave them behind. They're that brushed cotton fleecy type material and are just dreamy. I love the traditional styling too, I feel so sophisticated wearing them. If you can ever feel sophisticated rolling out of bed with your haystack hair. If you follow my instagram you will have already seen the preview of me wearing these with my fluffly owl slippers. I am such a catch. Seriously though, if you're into your warm night wear please invest. You won't regret it! I think these were about £10 too? I may be wrong though, so do check them out! 

Sometimes I go into Primark with the best will in the world and find nothing, yet other times I find some classics. This was one of those times- lucky for me, unlucky for my purse. J'adore! 


  1. I LOVE the pjs! Will have to pick some up next time I'm in Primark!

  2. I'm OBSESSED with shift dresses at the moment, they are so flattering! Know what you mean about the shift in pricing, I paid £22 for a blazer at the end of last year, I was shocked when I saw the price tag but I really fell in love with it, and it doesn't really look like Primark so I decided it'd be OK! Love the pattern on those PJs! I might need a visit soon, I haven't been for ages! Thanks for sharing x

  3. I love the fluffy crop top! Gorgeous colour!
