What I’m Wearing: Primark Lime Green Chunky Sweater, Primark Orange Pleather Pencil Skirt & Primark Metallic Stiletto Heels


As a student, Primark was above all a saving grace and pretty much the only place I could really afford to shop. But as a grown up (or at least an aspiring one) my love for the brand as only grown . You see, like all of us, I have bills to pay, healthy meals to make, money to save and travels to plan for – and our wardrobes, as adults should be the last priority on our spend lists. If you aren’t convinced of that, read Sophia Amoruso’s Girlboss and you will be! Now, I know one might assume that I spend a lot of money on clothes, but in all honesty, I really really don’t. We all know being a blogger has definite wardrobe perks but when I do shop, I always opt for the most affordable option – and that is simply why I adore Primark. I can pick up a handful of things, not sweat the cost and being the fickle girl I am, if I don’t wear them next season, well it’s not a huge loss. Primark is just simply fun shopping – when I was in Dublin earlier this year, I went a little crazy at their flagship, but everything I bought cost less than dinner at my favourite restaurant in Paris. So when the girls over in Ireland kindly invited me to style up some of their upcoming A/W collection, I couldn’t resist – and being me, I decided to put a retro spin on the project. So here’s Part 1 – combining two very bright colours on some beautiful monochrome tiling – and a touch of metallic, just to really take the whole ensemble to the next level! Textures are one of my favourite components of cold-weather fashion, chunky knits and snug skirts are such a go-to of mine, so I’m pretty excited to see the rest of their A/W collection. But until then, stick around for Part 2 of Retro A/W with Primark, which I shot in the cutest pink & mint green 50s diner – some of my favourite photos to date! Can’t wait to share!
