March Haul: Primark, Elsie & Fred and Topshop

Thanks to boring things like heating bills and food, it’s been quite a long time since a haul post has graced this blog. Ew, who knew the grown up world was so chuffin’ dull? Anywho, when I haven’t been rummaging around behind sofas/in strangers’ pockets looking for spare change, I have managed to sneak in the odd shopping trip this month. And here are a few things I’ve picked up:

March Haul Collage 1Jacket (£15) & Shorts (£10) – both Primark

Yes yes yes, the co-ord is mine! You may have already seen this in my recent Outfit of the Day post, but it deserves to be featured twice because… well, look at it. Ticking so many trend boxes that it may as well come with it’s own big pen, this is a checked monochrome matching sports luxe dream.

March Haul Collage 2Structure Black Tee (£6) & Pink Embossed Tee (£5) – both Primark

On the same shopping trip I picked up these two tops. I decided I needed a few more basic bits in my wardrobe, and these fit the bill perfectly. The black top has a kind of waffle-knit texture, with structured sleeves giving it quite a slightly more formal slant than your standard black t-shirt. The pale pink is a more standard slouchy cotton, though the embossed pattern adds a touch of interest. Both of these will be great for layering now and flaunting on their own (maybe with something on the bottom half, who knows though) come summer.

March Haul Collage 3Candy Panel Bralet – c/o Elsie and Fred

Has any piece of clothing ever made you long for summer more in your whole entire life? Didn’t think so. This little beauty was sent to me by Elsie and Fred, an independent label that hail from my hometown of Coventry (whaddup). They stock vintage, customised and one-off pieces and are basically cool as cool shit. You can also check out their Twitter @_elsieandfred.

Cami (£6) – Topshop

I’m not sure why this has come out vomit-yellow on camera when it’s in fact a beaut lime green, but that’s the peculiarities of technology. These little £6 camis come in a couple of different colours and are sure to be everywhere this spring/summer. Like on my body, for starters.

Marxh Haul 9Necklace (£4) – Primark

This was also featured in aforementioned OOTD post, but I felt like throwing it on the floor and taking another photo anyway.

March Haul 8 March Haul 7Pumps (£6) and Sandals (£14) – both Primark

Let’s groove past the boring black flats (bought to replace my other black flats with have gone walkabouts, possibly having thrown themselves off a building for being too boring)(there’s a strange image…) and focus on the BEAUTIES that are these white sandals. I actually did a little gasp in Primark when I saw them, and definitely nearly threw up with excitement when I saw they were only £14. I think I’ll be going back for the black pair very very soon.

What do you all think of this haul? Have you picked up anything good lately?

    ‘Boring’ black flats are the necessity! I just picked up some though would you believe my shock when I got home and realised two diff sizes were tied together?! WTF. ANYWAY I am so jealous of those caged boots still and you know I LOVE the two piece so I will still be hunting, and the staple t-shirts will be so versatile, I love the embossed one xxxxx

      They are, I moan about them but most of the week they’ll end up on my feet! Haha I would have been OUTRAGED by this different size business though, what good is that?! xx

    Primark has never had both the jacket and the shorts in whenever I’ve been in and it’s so frustrating because I neeed those co-ords in my life! Your Topshop cami is gorgeous too and those Primark sandals are perfect!
