One day last week I had a meeting that ended my day in the center of town. It's been a long time since town was a daily occurrence as now I work just outside the city center. Back in those days primark was almost a daily lunchtime ritual, along with Superdrug. Now I have "limited" access to these everytime I go into town I make a mental note to "pop" in.
Of course you never can just "pop" into Primark. There is far too much temptation and after seeing a couple of these things on blogs over the last few weeks there was no way I was leaving empty handed. As soon as I walked in I spotted the ridiculously soft and furry jumpers. I picked mine up in a pale pink (who said pastels are just for summer) because it's probably the one colour that I don't have a jumper in. Super soft and only £10 I clung onto the jumper the whole way around the shop. Especially as the only one they had in my size was hidden among the Christmas Jumpers. Side note: The stock of the Christmas Jumpers they have now is severely disappointing, clearly I should have bought mine in October.
On our way up to the accessories I spied the disney t-shirts which made the 5 year old me (ok, and the 23 year old me) squeal with delight. The Little Mermaid is one of my favourite films and I still know all the words to Part of that World (cool kid me!) so having a t-shirt is just awesome. It's a size 10, but to be honest they are HUGE, I would size down if your Primark stocks more than just one size. Best part - it's £6.
Finally, my favourite. Scarves and hats. I have wanted a tartan *something* since forever. I just wasn't sure what, I think for me an item of clothing in tartan would be too hard to style. Pretty much because I have no style. I haven't taken this scarf off really, worn it with anything and everything. For a fiver I would pick it up again in more colours.
Hats, ahh the hat season is here. They hide roots, bad hair days and those days where you can't be bothered to wash your greasy roots - I love "em. The ones I have are now abit out of shape after being worn for two/three years so a staple grey beanie and navy bobble hate came home with me, £2 each. Perfect.
Have you been to Primark lately? What essential did I miss?
