July + August Primark Haul (and a one off M&S item too)

All of these items are made up of a few different Primark trips plus a little special treat that I received from my rather lovely soon-to-be (in one week, eek) husband. I wouldn’t normally get to town three times in the space of a month but there’s been lots of reasons why I’ve had to so popping in to Primark seemed like a very reasonable reward for all of the hard work involved in being in town  (haha)

This was the first item that I picked up which was the weekend of my hen-like celebrations. I didn’t have a hen do, as such, but I had a meal and a couple of drink with my sister and step Mum and then the next day I had some tea and cake with some family and friends. On the day I went to see my sister and Step Mum  I realised I’d forgotten my coat and, so, before getting on the bus I popped in to Primark – I didn’t find anything that’d provide any extra warmth, in lieu of the coat, but I did find this beautiful, blush pink, sheer shirt with butterfly print. I instantly fell in love, it was £12.

I picked up these bits when I was in town for my eye test. The vests for Ethan and the socks for me are pretty much self explanatory essentials but they were super cheap and bargainous which is always good.I picked up the pale pink, mini makeup bag because I wanted something small enough for a bag but big enough to hold makeup, medication and anything else that might be floating around in my handbags – I just can’t help but try and keep everything as organised as possible (I Think this was about £3)

The other two things are wedding related. The cream, lace effect pumps are for me to slip on on the evening of the wedding because my feet don’t like heels and, even though the ones I’ve got for the wedding are only low, I think my feet will appreciate something a little lower to pass the evening with (They were £5)
Lastly we have the beautiful, floral, bun band which is for Skye. We’ve been wondering what we should do with her hair, and I’ve had my eye open for a pretty hair tie for her but haven’t seen anything that I liked enough. This was just perfect, though, and when Azii told me that she’s been loving having her hair up in a bun recently it seemed just perfect – It’ll go with her dress and finish off her look in just the right way, And it was an amazingly cheap steal of £1.50.

When we had to go and pick up my new glasses we had a few final bits to get for the wedding – I was on the eye out for some nice undies (which won’t be featuring in this post haha) and some jewellery. I hadn’t expected to get them at Primark but it’s a surprising place! It’s quite hard to see in the picture but the pearl style jewellery had a pink tone to it, which is why I was interested in it (with pink being the colour scheme) – I’d not, originally, thought of pearls but I saw the necklace and just thought it’d go So nicely with my dress so I also searched out a bracelet set, too, there’s three pearl type ones in the set – The necklace was £2 and the bracelet set was £2.50.The Winnie The Pooh pj top is one I’ve seen a few times and just loved but I knew I shouldn’t spend £5 on a pj top I didn’t need. When I was in buying underwear I found this one, last one discarded amongst the bras and it was reduced to £2! I love it, I needed something to wrap around the undies so that Azii wouldn’t see them…. it was clearly meant to be!

And this is the M&S item that I mentioned in the title. When we were in town for my eye test Azii and I ended up in M&S looking for his shirt for the wedding and on our way out I saw this dress which I just love. It’s not the most expensive dress in the world for most people but, as someone who mostly buys from Primark, £25 was too much to spend at that time. Little did I know that Azii was going to come back from work with it the next day – I’d been asleep with a migraine when he came home so I just remember waking up and finding this on the back of the living room door. A rather lovely surprise as I’m sure you can imagine, it’s such a beautiful dress and that he thought to go back and get it was so so sweet.
