Recent Primark Purchases

So it's been a while since my last Primark haul on the blog, and it's safe to say I've accumulated a lot of stuff from there since! Don't worry, I didn't go on a mad splurge one day, this stuff has all come from several different trips over the last few months (I'm not sure that makes it any better?!), but since it was all still in stock the last time I visited the store, I thought I'd share with you everything I've bought recently.

As well as these items I also bought some basic tops and trousers, etc, but I thought rather than bore you with those I'd just save you the good stuff...

Shirt £10
Shirt/Blouse £9

Shirt £10

Shirt £9
As you can see I want a bit overboard on the shirts haha! But when it came down to clearing out my wardrobe for our house move this weekend, I realised that after my weight loss, I don't really have all that much that fits me any more, and I have two bin bags rammed full of clothes to go to charity, so it was time to buy some more! I was in desperate need of some new workwear, so with these new tops I'm well on my way to having enough again. I also has to throw out my only casual check shirt, which I loved wearing open with a cami underneath, so I had to get a new one in my new size!

Top £8
I'd seen this top in a recent YouTube Primark haul, and absolutely loved the look of it. When I first spotted them in my local Primark, they only had a few in - and none in my size, so I thought I'd missed my chance, but when I went back again a couple of weeks later there were tonnes in stock, so I grabbed one straight away. Whilst I'm not sure I'll be wearing it any time soon, I think it will look lovely in the spring when it starts to get a bit warmer.

Jumper £4.90

Jumper £10
The weather in the UK has gotten really cold recently. I guess with the mild start to the winter we had, it was always going to happen at some point. I decided to buy a couple of new jumpers to help keep me warm on those freezing cold days. I've always wanted to embrace the high neck trend, but I'm really not a fans of those super high necked tops - I'd just get too irritated by them. This grey jumper was just the right height of neck for me, and was a bargain at £4.90 - I think it's meant to be £6 but was on offer. Another thing I've become obsessed with recently is stripes and yet another item I had to throw out of my wardrobe was a stripy jumper, so I had to replace it. This one is really oversized, I had to go small in this, when usually I'd be a medium. 

Blazer £13
I absolutely fell in love with this blazer when I saw it dressed up on the mannequin, I love the pattern on it. This is going to add something a little more interesting to my outfit on those days when I wear just a basic top and trousers.

Boots £5
These boots are by far the best bargain I've ever come across in Primark. Usually I don't bother looking in shoe sales, as my size, a 5, is usually the first to sell out in anything, so I couldn't believe it when I saw these beauties reduced from £18 to a mere fiver! They are so pretty, but quite basic, so they'll go with so many things, I've already got a few outfit ideas in mind with these! They are just the right for me too - they give me a little bit of height, but not so high that I'm going to be uncomfortable or struggle to walk in them. I love these!

Necklace £1.50
If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this last piece. I don't really buy much jewellery from anywhere, let alone Primark, but when I saw that they now had a rose gold range, I had to pick up something. I really like this necklace as it's nice and dainty, whereas a lot of Primark jewellery can be more bulky statement pieces.

Have you bought anything from Primark recently?
