Moving Into Spring With Primark

Hello Beauties <3

Primark has some lovely buys in at the moment.  I had a peek in there recently for a pair of shoes for work and came away with lots of lovely things... except the shoes for work!  There's some lovely floral jewellery and light nude tones to carry you into Spring.  I'm loving the shoes they have at the moment and snapped up some sandals, even though it'll be a while before I can wear them.  Here's what I bought:

First up are these gorgeous pumps.  Ive been looking for some comfy and easy to wear shoes that go with lots of different outfits.  I got a pair in a nude pink blush colour with frills on the front of the shoe and a white pair with a plaited detail going around them.  Although no one will be able to see it when they're on my feet, I adore the floral material inside the shoe.  It makes them feel so girlie and feminine.  I love shoes like these from Primark, they're so affordable and good quality.  I couldn't see them in the normal section, even though I know they do them as my friend has a pair, so I had to get these from the Wide Fit section.  I don't have wide feet but I bought a shoe size smaller than I usually wear and they fit almost perfectly :)

I must, however, have quite wide ankles as sometimes I cant get sandals to fit me that have a buckle fastening around the ankle.  With that in mind, I'm ALWAYS looking out for sandals with elasticated straps.  These were perfect and for only £2.50 a pair, I had to snap a couple of pairs up, even if it is February!  They are actually a little bit big on me around the ankle so I really cant win.  They'll be perfect in the summer time though and I'm so pleased I found them.  I have a couple of pairs from Faith from a couple of summers ago but since Faith shut down, I need to find another shop to top up my supply of flip flops and sandals... perhaps Primark is the place!

I've never been too much of a fan of Primark bags as the majority feel and look cheap, which they are and I love a good bargain but I don't want something to look cheap.  For the recent Bloggers Night Out, I picked up this light pink mock snakeskin bag.  I love the gold chain detailing on the strap and how it can be worn over the shoulder, as I wore it, or across the body.  The gold fastening on the front is reminiscent of Mulberry dontcha think.  Although pink isn't really my choice of colour in bags, I adore the colour of this as its so subtle and very feminine.  A definite hit for Spring and Summer nights out on the town!

Of course I couldn't go to Primark without buying some jewellery.  I picked pieces that I could mix and match together and the pieces I picked out are most certainly geared for springtime.  The jewellery in Primark is gorgeous at the moment and with such soft colours, mixed with diamantes and gold, these pieces will be firmly on my most worn list in the months ahead. There's a lot of pieces that seem to go together, as though they were in a set but I'm not really one for completely matching all of my jewellery.  Through buying similar coloured jewellery along a similar theme, I'll be able to mix and match these pieces to create lots of different feminine looks.  Check these beauties out...



I also picked up this beaded cuff style bracelet which I wore on the night out with the blogging girlies.  Talk about ill-fitting.  This bracelet is a one size fits all style but look at it when it's fastened on the last ring.  I've hardly got little wrists and this bracelet is just HUGE.  Has anyone else had this problem with similar bracelets in Primark?  Bracelets like this aren't really something I would try on in the shop itself, mainly because of the big label they put on them but I think ill have to in future!  If you have little wrists, stay away from this bracelet!
I also managed to pick up two gorgeous vintage style rings.  A blue floral one which really is beautiful and not like anything else I have, and a pretty cameo ring.

Are you a Primark addict like I am?  What are your favourite accessories at the moment?

  7. Oooh the pink Primark shoes are lovely! I'm in need of stocking up on Primark shoes! If I like a pair, I tend to buy a spare or two because 1, they won't be any left the next time I return and 2, I trash my shoes and need to replace them every couple of months! I'm loving the pale pink and white colours you have going on :)
