Summer Fashion Bargains - mini haul

primark maxi dress
I'm on the countdown till my holiday. Unfortunately the high street shops are also on a count down and seem to be getting rid of their summer stock like they know we're never going to see the sun again! I did manage to bag a few things before the rails are over taken by winter jumpers and coats so thought I'd show you in case you're on the holiday clothes hunt like me.

Primark Maxi dress - I really don't think I suit a maxi, I've tried before and I just feel weird in them. But I like the idea of a maxi, they cover a multitude of sins, and keeps your legs warm and covered from mozzi's when you're dining out in the evening. I actually saw this dress in the latest Look magazine for £12.00. I got it on sale for £6.00! I like it and only feel a little bit weird in it. I do feel it poofs out a bit too much at the front, so I picked up a couple of necklaces (below) to weight the poofing down.
H&M off the shoulder dress
H&M off the shoulder dress - I've seen this dress on quite a few fashion blogger's Instagram feeds that I follow and couldn't believe that it was only £12.99. This dress comes up really big so I got the smallest size I could find. I love the bright colour and as the sleeves are slightly fluted and wide, it'll be nice and cool in hotter climates. I have read a couple of people saying that they either wear this dress with the shoulder straps tucked in or cut off completely as they keep falling down, so I'll see how I get on as I do like the shoulder straps.
H&M shirt dress
H&M dress - I bought this dress when we had warning of the UK's hottest day coming. This dress is so comfortable to wear, it's loose, cotton yet still has shape and structure to it. I just wish it had pockets but then I wish everything had pockets! This pineapple pattern dress is £14.99 and there were quite a few other summery prints to choose from in this style dress.
primark necklace
Primark necklace - this was in the sale at only £3.00. It sits nicely on the maxi dress and will also look great on a plain black t-shirt dress with gold sandals. I feel like Cleopatra wearing this. Surely not a bad thing?!
H&M necklace
H&M necklace - another £3.00 sale bargain. This longer necklace was more what I was looking for to weight down the volume of the maxi dress. It's a three strand necklace which will look great against a variety of coloured outfits.

Act quick if you like anything featured here - Winter (clothing) is coming!

    1. Oh thank you Zoe. That's so nice of you. I think because I'm 5ft 4 maxi's are really maxi on me. But this one isn't dragging along the floor. Good ole Primark.

  5. Love the Primark maxi..it looks fab on you, and that necklace with it is a perfect match. Looks a bit boho, so that's my fave. I'm off to Greece in September and need a few bits, so thanks..need to have a noise around Primark
