Fashion | Primark Madness! I Like Big Hauls and I Cannot Lie!

You know the drill, you go in for some black opaque tights and come out with:

I don't think I've ever paid £18 for a pair of Primark shoes, but these feel lovely on despite the heel and see how it dips into a 'V' shape at the bottle of your ankle? It elongates the leg and banishes stumpiness!

They came in black too, which I would have gotten more use out of, but the wooden heel looked really cheap on them.

I love espiradrilles.  They give me some inches but don't hurt my fee to much.  The bow on these is a bit wonky, but for £6 I'm not too fussed.  Got me a cruise coming up so they are suitably nautical methinks.

These little babies were £4. FOUR QUID! They come up a bit small so I had to go for a size 7, but they do look dinky on.  Even my mum commented.  Perfect to team with a nice little sundress and go exploring in a European city.  These will do lovely for Venice in July.

I picked up the blue ones too as I have a lot of navy and blue summer dresses and they look cute with indigo jean capris.

I'm not entirely convinced on these as they aren't very comfortable, although I do love the turquoise detailing.  However they were £10 and I know I can find prettier out there if I look.  They're going back.

I recently joined the gym again so I needed some nice new flip flops to keep the veruca germs away.  I got these two for £2 - bargain! They're a bit tight to slip on handsfree, but once on they're nice and snug so I reckon I could do quite a bit of walking in these.  They're pretty cushioned too.

Now onto my favourite bits - the bling!

Guess what? I LOVE pearls! This pretty amazing little bracelet was only about £4 (I can't find my receipt!)

I'm on a kinda nautical kick at the moment as I have a couple of cruises coming up.  I know the captain will love my steering wheel and anchor charm bracelet (£1.50!).  Although I'm not sure whether to leave the cute fabric bow on or not when I wear it? Suggestions? 

The Little Mermaid in me had to have this seashell necklace and the miser in me more than approved as it again, was only £1.50.  I think I'll layer this with another necklace, perhaps my dainty Alex Monroe  butterfly. 

Yes, still with the nautical...for £1.50...

This necklace is a bit massive, but I'm hoping I can carry it off with a simple top/dress and a fierce tan.  This was £4.00. 

I'm swimming at the gym too and a noisy tesco bag just isn't cutting it anymore, so I picked up this cute bikini pouch to carry my wet cossie home in.  Not sure how waterproof it is yet, but at least it would work as a useful pouch to store valuables in at the beach.

So there you have it my lovelies.  It had been about 3 months since I'd stepped near a Primark, so I don't think I went too crazy.  

So what bits (if any) do you like from my haul? What would you return?
