I went to Primark and I bought...

The other day I went for a much needed Primark trip. Unfortunately, here in Madrid Primark shops aren't anywhere near as popular as in England where they seem to be in every town (apart from my home town, of course). So, I hopped on a couple of buses to be on my way with an adventure to find Primark, and I did it! Here's a couple of snaps of what I bought.

My first pick was the flannel black and white shirt. I have been after the perfect one for a very, very long time, probably even since before summer and I have had no luck...until now of course! I did have in mind one with slightly smaller checks, however this one is absolutely perfect for winter as it's thick and cosy! It was a steal at only €13.

Next I made a dive for the jewellery. I must admit I was a little disappointed by their selection, but it was probably a good thing as I am very guilty of buying jewellery and losing it within a week. 
My favourite of the two is the layered silver necklace. It's simple and quite dainty! That was only €3 and the other was only €4.

I had previously told myself that I would not buy any more footwear until I found the perfect pair of practical winter boots. And well, I ignored my inner self like a rebellious teenage girl. I couldn't not get these, they're so comfy and I love the croc print. They were €18, so slightly more expensive than other Primark shoes, but still a whole lot cheaper than other brands, lets face it.  

Oh my, can we all just appreciate the colour and wonderful shape, please? I was walking round and round the store, picking up endless amounts of clothes and forcing myself to put everything back but this one I just couldn't shake off my mind. I tried it on and felt like I couldn't leave the shop without it. I couldn't really justify buying another coat but in the end, you always do don't you! It looks great with the shirt and I'm on the hunt for a black roll neck jumper which I think will look great too. At €30 I thought it was quite a steal!

Lastly, the scarf which you may or may not have noticed on my Lush haul post. I picked it up on a quick in and out trip to Primark a couple of weeks ago. It's such a big old scarf and pretty much drowns me when I wear it, I love it! It was only €7.

What are your favourite bits I bought and have you got your eye on anything in Primark at the moment? Do you think they're doing well this season with their casual and sparkly Christmassy bits?

I hope you enjoyed my clothing haul post (first ever may I add!)

¡Hasta Luego!

  2. Haha I quite liked your dedication to go and find it! There were plenty a times where I've traveled far and wide for fashion ;) And it seems to be well worth it- that electric blue coat is GORGEOUS. I refuse to buy black boring coats during winter, and that one in particular would have caught my eye right away. I'd love to see how that looks on :)
