I have not done a lot of clothes shopping for a while, purely because I was pregnant and only gave birth to Alfie three months ago. I was in maternity jeans and big jumpers throughout the majority of those 9 months and so I had to neglect my wardrobe because none of the clothes fit me(boohoo!). After I had given birth I was still in maternity jeans up until a few weeks ago when I had discovered that I could finally fit into my size 8 jeans(yes!). You can imagine my excitement. So after that lovely discovery, to celebrate, I popped into my local Primark and I went a little cray cray.
Before I was pregnant I could've just popped into Primark, grabbed a few bits and pieces, paid and walked right out but sadly I can't do that no longer. I have to try everything on. I alternate between a size 8 and a size 10 at the moment so it's a bit annoying. My boyfriend was a little irritated as I was prancing around Primark picking up pretty much anything in like 3 different sizes and trying them all on.
Normally when pop into Primark I would just pick up a few pj sets and socks and whatnot but I got a little too carried away this time. There were far too many cute pieces of clothing and I just could not resist taking them away with me. I must warn you this is a little picture heavy.
So what did I pick up? Well firstly I am a little bit obsessed with Disney pyjamas at the moment so when I spotted this super cute Simba Pj Top from the Pyjama section I just threw it into the bag(well kinda threw it at Josh, oops!). I absolutely loved The Lion King when I was a child and Simba is just too adorable. I got it in a size 6-8 even though it's a little baggy for a small size, but I love it. I kinda wish I bought a size or two up. It is really soft material so it's extremely pleasant and comfortable to wear in bed or when I'm lounging around the house.
Another Disney piece of clothing is this cute 'My Little Mermaid' shirt with the slogan 'I woke up like this'. Oh how I wish I woke up like that, but heyho, can't always get what you wish for. Again, it is extremely soft material so completely comfortable and yeah, I just really love it.
My favourite buy of them all is is this gorgeous nautical navy and white jacket with beautiful gold chain detailing. I just love everything about it. You can wear the jacket with pretty much everything. I've worn it once already and styled it with a pair of skinny jeans, a plain vest top and black flats. The best thing about this jacket is how expensive it looks. Well I personally think it looks more expensive than £12. I guess that's down to the style and the detailing. It's not made from a very stretchy nor flexible fabric. The quality of the material is impeccable too. The jacket is very fitting, not to the point where it feels tight on the body but I picked up a size 6 and it just hugs my body just right.
Anyone who knows me pretty well would say that this is a typical Lauren purchase, which I guess is kinda true. It's a beautiful, sheer, slightly pastel-ish pink blouse/top/shirt or whatever. It has a button right at the top near the collar which I love. I like to button it all the way to the collar and pop a beautiful statement necklace over the top. It is so perfect for this Spring/Summer.
I have my nieces christening coming up tomorrow(technically today when this post goes live) and so I was searching for a new dress to wear. I wasn't looking for anything specific but I came across this gorgeous nudey-pink, sheer, lacy dress and just fell in love. It was at a discounted price, £5 down from around £13 which was such a bargain.
To pop over the top of the dress and keep me nice and cosy during the christening I picked up this Black Blazer. They look so perfect paired together. Again, it was another bargain, priced at £11.90 down from around £16. Not bad eh? Gotta save the pennies where you can.
Lastly, I picked up this lovely pink clutch bag. I was thinking about picking up a black one to pair with the outfit at first but I couldn't just walk away without this one. It's just too pretty. Can you tell that I am obsessed with pink? Oops.
Have you been to Primark recently? If so, what have you hauled?
