Aye Aye Kaftan

Today I got up early to battle Primark






Dress: H&M
Necklace: Camden
Shoes: Primark


The Primark in my town is actually horrible. I don't think I've been to a smaller one and they stock about 3 of each thing. You've got to battle old ladies and girls that still wear hair gel to get around the huge wooden stands and then dig your way through 50p tees in the hope to find something ok-ish. I actually went to help find some man shorts for Spain but spotted a Kaftan that I had to have. When I'm on holiday I usually just lie back and let the sun fry me, but I really want to start looking after my skin, and it's gross how every summer the sun gives me more moles - I don't care if they're kisses just stop it please.
I bought one I liked in Tesco but it was a bit plane Jane so was more than prepared to rummage through awful underwear to find this.



It's the one on the left and I only had to part with six pounds for it, whilst the slightly maternity esque F&F Kaftan was eight! I'll be keeping them both though as they're deffs practical for my uncooked chicken skin. I also found these...



I dunno if you can see but they've got anchors and mini boats on them, I've seen a few nauticalish things curtosy of Primark on other people's blogs I'm quite impressed with the details they've have added, especially for a tiny £2.50!

Other than pottering around my flat and eating leftover apple pie whilst watching extreme home makeover, I haven't really done much else with my Saturday.
Oh annnd is anyone reading this planning on going to the Midlands Blogger meetup? Lemme know!

  3. I've never battled the Northampton Primark on a Saturday, nor do I ever wish to do so! It's bad enough in the week!
    You found some lovely bits though, I didn't find much when I went in last week other than a dress. I got a kaftan just like that last year but a different pattern, and will be wearing it again this year!

  17. Really nice outfit! I love that necklace, really different. I've heard so much about primark it's sounds like an amazing store, it sucks the one near you is not that great. But you still manage to pick up some great things like those flip flops, so cute.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog! :)

  21. Hello fellow northamptoner! Isn't our primark terrible? It's so hot! I can only get shoes and hair bobbles from there or I get too hot and stressed! Have you been to the corby one? Much nicer, and the staff are pretty helpful too!
    Looks like you've got some really nice bits, I really want to go summer clothes shopping now!

  22. Love the new buys, and the polka dot dress your wearing! x

  23. I love your spotty dress, its very cute. I usually hate primark shopping as the queues are always a joke and the number of ridiculous pushy people do my head in! Although after battling the Oxford Street Primark, I realised I can cope with the smaller shops!

    I'm going to the Midlands Blogger meet up, but can only make it for the day. Hope to see you there x x

  27. Good primark finds! I don't normal like going to primark as it's the oxford St one and it's just so cowded and the queues are huge. I guess that's just all primarks though!

  28. Very pretty dress and necklace, so sweet!

  31. I have had my eye on those flip flops for a while now, very sweet :)
    I tend to be very quick when I go into Primark near where I live, everyone seems to get on my nerves in that shop so it is a case of going in to find exactly what I want then out again as quick as possible!

  32. Those sandals are so adorable! They look way more expensive than they actually are. And I love the cover-ups you've found! We don't have a Primark by us, but these look like awesome finds :)

  34. We don't have a Primark in York - we have to go to the Leeds one to get anything, which is quite nice. I hate small ones though. The flip flops are so cute - I got similar ones in H&M but without the little details.

  38. The kaftan is pretty nice, they often do have good beach things! I'm not sure if it's worse to go to the huge Oxford Street one near me and battle with about 500 other people just move around, it gets so darn busy! xx

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the floral kaftan. Yep you're right...
    Primark is best done on an early morning lol! xx

  42. love the shoes and the flip flops- awesome!

    Primark where I am is horrific too, but I find it's best tackled between 9 and 1030am.
