Who doesn’t love a good shopping haul?
Weirdo’s, that’s who.
So I went on a little shopping spree yesterday to my nearby city to start picking up stuff for my summer holidays in June! I am so excited!
Anyway, enough excitement for now, I went to soooo many stores but only bought in two. (Depressing or what?)
I guess the shops are still in pre-summer mode, so stock is limited, but I am very happy with what I got so far!
Let’s just get into it already.
First up is this bikini.
I am in LOVE with this bikini. I saw it a while back online and I am always just too lazy to go up and get my credit card to buy it so I put it off and I found it in store!
It is a gorgeous heather grey colour, the top is push up halter and so flattering for smaller busted ladies like myself! The tops run in bra sizes which is GREAT as I always find sizes that run small – large never fit me!
The bottoms are just general hipsters depending on the size you get. The material is very stretchy so I got a size 6 as I like my bottoms to be quite smaller on the bum side.
I like a tanned bum ok, don’t judge.
Second are these knuckle rings.
I have been looking for the perfect bunch of knuckle rings forever! I wanted plain ones with tiny ones for the upper knuckle and medium ones for the middle of the finger, and guess what?
I found them!
I squealed a little bit when I saw them, no really, I did. That is how perfect these are, and they fit my fingers perfectly. Which is a big problem for me. (Chubby fingers alert) They come with about 10 or 12 rings.
If you are from anywhere outside of the UK or Ireland then you won’t be familiar with Primark. It is very very similar to Forever 21, cheap prices and a range of everything from underwear to hair supplies.
Let’s just say every single woman in the UK and Ireland have Primark in their closet.
This is quite a long haul so bare with me here!
First, these bikinis.
So I bought a few different swim pieces here. When they are all so cheap it is so hard not too!
I got this bright fun triangle bikini as it caught my eye the minute I went into the swim section. It is a gorgeous neon blue mixed with pinks and greens.
The top is a triangle style but the cups are quite padded which I like. The strings are taught and strong, not weak and flimsy. (Who wants the threat of flimsy strings being undone?)
The bottoms are skimpy so beware if you don’t try these on. I don’t mind tiny bottoms but some people don’t like the fear of those strings on either side becoming undone so be sure to try them on first if you are one of those!
I also picked up a pair of pink bottoms to mix and match with the top because I don’t always like wearing matching tops and bottoms.
I’m weird that way.
TOP: €4.00 (Yup, you read that right)
BOTTOMS: €3.00 each
So I also bought these bottoms to go with a top that I already have at home, and they are so versatile they can go with any top I buy in the future.
They are a general hipster style, they are not so stretchy so do try them on first otherwise you run the risk of suffocating your buttocks if they are too small, or flashing the nation if they are too big!
I think I would rather suffocate my bum though.
So last but not least, I go this bikini set.
It is a neon blue bandeau style top that come with optional strings for a halter style, but I will warn you the strings are bad quality and they don’t stay on very long or if you tie them quite tight, so don’t get it you are planning on wearing it halter style!
The bottoms came with it and again are a basic hipster style. As the bikini came in a set, I had to buy the same size top and bottom, which really doesn’t suit me as I am smaller on top then on the bottom, so they are kind of tight but nothing I cant stretch out!
I have a weakness for sunglasses, and when they are so cheap, I literally cannot contain myself!
I got 4 pairs, 2 styles in 2 colours.
Because who only wants one colour?
The first are these aviator style sunnies. I adore the lens colour in these! It is gorgeous orange,coral, pink and they are so flattering on! I hate sunnies that are too small or way to big and these fit the bill for me.
Next are the same style and size except in the mirrored colour. I have been looking for the right size glasses in the mirrored style for so long and here they were, right in front of me!
Just a tip, they are not that strong in terms of actually blocking out the sun (Their actual function) so if you prefer to be blind when wearing sunglasses I wouldn’t recommend these bad boys, but if you choose style over protection like me, then go ahead!
SUNGLASSES: €1.50 each
Next up are these ray-ban club master style. I adore this style and I couldnt help myself when I saw them in two colours!
They are perfect size and shape and they have good sun blocking power. (is that even a thing?)
I have no critique on these except you will look cool as f*#k!
SUNGLASSES: €3.00 each
The shoes, because everybody loves shoes.
So I picked up 2 pairs of casual shoes for walking around or shopping in as nobody likes to be in flat sandals after 3 hours of shopping and sight seeing!
First I got these BRIGHT coral Vans inspired shoes. I have these in red from last season but the coral is just so pretty! The colour will really pop against a summer tan and look fabulous with a pair of denim shorts and a tee!
They are very comfy and are good quality so don’t be afraid to get them for everyday use. They run true to size too!
CORAL SHOES: €8.00
I also got these white sailor shoes, or whatever they are called I never really know. I got these to slip on and off while walking from the beach to the hotel as I don’t want to get bits of glass or something in my foot while on the footpath.
Unless you like that sort of stuff or something.
They do run a little small so I got a size up from my usual. They are super comfy and great with a pair of skinny jeans and a sweater for night time too!
WHITE SHOES: €5.00
Primark didn’t have too much summer clothes but I did spot these beautiful high waisted shorts.
They are in a bright pink with velvet detailing all over them. They are very good quality and fit well but run a little big so go for the smaller option, even though they do look small they are stretchy.
I usually don’t go for bright colours so I am excited to style these around my neutrals and have them as the feature part of my outfit! Perfect for a night on the town with some sandals and a shirt or cami.
SHORTS: Wait for it…… €11.00 !
So that is it for my pre – summer haul this time! I have many more things to get so stay tuned for a part 2 or maybe even 3, or 4 who knows!
