holidays are bad for my bank account

I very rarely post about clothes on here any more, but seeing as I'm holiday at the moment and have a lot more free time to go shopping (much to my banks disappointment) I'm finding myself buying little bits and bobs that have become regulars in my wardrobe. Given that it's summer, albeit a Scottish one, I am trying to dress appropriately. Can't stay too clear from neutral black though..

It's no secret that most of my clothing comes from Primark. I don't tend to spend a lot of money on clothing. I know someone people prefer to buy statement pieces that are more expensive but will go with a lot more outfits, but I'm the opposite. I'd rather have more clothes and have the ability to mix and match. I spent a grand total of £32 the other day but managed to walk away with three tops and a pair of jeans. The jeans are probably my favourite, they're an odd shade of grey/blue with rips at the knees. I've been wearing them quite a lot recently.

I also already own around five or six white and black striped tops, but each are slightly different, as I've had to explain to my boyfriend on many occasions. Some have bigger stripes, some the stripes are closer together, it's all very complicated. I bought this one because it's slightly longer than any of my other ones, and because it's stripy. Did I mention I love stripes? Yes, okay then.

I picked up the little vest on a whim. I'm not sure if I'll be able to wear it as 1) I don't have the boobs for it, it could possibly hang down to low and let my bra see the light of day 2) It sits a little too high up my torso, not having the confidence for a crop top quite yet and 3) It's Scotland, and our summer is terrible right now. I'll figure something out, the lacing at the bottom is too cute not to try and wear it.

Lastly, another staple tee. This one has a chiffon bottom, which is pretty sweet. I wore it out to dinner the other day, it was sort of casual yet done up at the same time. Looking like my outfit effortless is a skill by the way, but this tee helps.

I'll probably make another appearance in Primark on my two weeks holiday. Maybe two. Depending on payday. We'll see.

  1. Ooh I haven't been to Primark for so long! I'm definitely due a trip. I love your picks, the lace hem top is gorgeous! I would look lovely with slightly more high waisted jeans/trousers/skirt if you're worried about it being too short! Enjoy your holiday x

  2. I love the vest and the jeans. It's a shame I don't live near a Primark but it saves me money, not being able to go out and spend spend spend!
