Primark and Monki Haul #1

Tuesday, June 11, 2013
We went to Primark in Manchester at the weekend and myself and my sister bought quite a few things - the new stock in Primark is gorgeous, I could have bought a lot more clothes, bags and home wear but I restrained myself and only bought some tops, sweaters, pjs' and home wear bits... There are also a couple of items from Monki in this mini haul series. This is the first part, there will be a couple more just so the posts are not really long - excuse the weird poses, I am not too comfortable in front of the camera. 

1. Primark Light French Sweater (£8): I saw this in the Bury Primark a few weeks ago and I really wanted it but I finally bought it at the weekend and I LOVE it. I will buy any top if it has stripes on like this, I can't help myself and the stripes combined with a cute French design - I had to buy it. The knit is really light and super soft so I can still wear it during summer and into autumn - and layered during winter. Jeans from Dorothy Perkins - petite skinny and shoes from La Redoute.

2. Monki Sale Knit Top (£5, sale): I saw Estee from Essie Button wearing this in her first Copenhagen vlog and I loved it (I love most things from Monki) but when I saw that it was reduced from £35 to £5 in the sale I bought it immediately! I love the design, colour and over sized fit - I bought an XS and it is still pretty big so you need to read the measurements carefully with Monki clothing. Boots from La Redoute and prescription glasses from Firmoo.

3. Primark Breton Striped Top (£6): As I said before, I can't resist stripes and I really like this top. The material feels smooth and soft, love the stripes and this top also has some silver jewel embellishments on the shoulders which I like - although they will probably all come off after one wash. Jeans from Dorothy Perkins and wedges from Dorothy Perkins.

Hope you like this haul, happy shopping and stay tuned for the second and third parts of this mini series x
