Must-haves for Autumn/Fall +Primark Edition!
You know and I know that the old “I’ll just pop in for socks” excuse never works, we go in for socks and somehow get transported to another universe where the “ooh sure it’s only €4!” takes over and it’s all downhill from there, right? Ten minutes turns in to forty five, and you forget the socks and come out with a whole new bedroom ensemble, and a new pair of boots
still no socks for the boots!) and three pairs of jeggings and make-up in two
different shades because sure it was only four euro lads, and you might need
Yeah, me too.
If we stop kidding ourselves and decide to go for it shame-free here are just a few of my must-haves for the new season at PRIMARK/PENNYS (depending on which side of the border you fall).
Starting off with the bane of our lives when September rolls around, the yearly struggle of finding the right Winter Coat ™.
The waterfall effect duster coat comes in two shades, black and dusk pink, perfect for the milder Autumn weather, pre-winter - over a light jumper and jeans, or a dress and tights. Next up the the classic belted mac with a wide collar in a knotted grey and white shade, I absolutely need this coat in my life because it looks so cosy and comfortable, and such an easy to wear piece for the milder months and easily transitioned right in to winter. NEED!
Mmmhm there it is.
But aren't these two adorable? Loving the waffle textured beige and the deeper berry toned scarf, both perfect with the other items shown too as a mix and match. Teaming the berry toned one over the 3/4 sleeve top and the cute stone washed denim jeggings + the duster jacket? It's a look I'm not mad at for sure! The New York themed hoodie made the cut simply because it's one of my best memories of this past year, and it's simple, and over-sized is key for a lazy weekend look. This, some dark skinny jeans, and my +adidas All Stars? A win for chic comfort.
Honourable mention, because again, anyone that knows me knows that Housewares and Make-up are my two favourite things in life, and if you ever lose me in a department store (which, happens more often than you think I'm only 5'0!) these are the two places I will probably be. So tiny mention for the +Primark online +Primark home items, a few key pieces for me for A/W 2016 are
as always a good blanket, for snuggling up to on the sofa, or for that extra insulation at bed time, teamed with the their long-burning candle range, this one is a favourite of mine; invoking memories of summer on those thundery nights to come with their Sea Salt & Lavender scent.
Ps. It's always important to support your local girl gang, and look stylish as hell while raising hell, so why not do both with that cute re-useable bottle/straw combo!
