Primark Mini Haul.

Here's the Primark haul I promised a little while ago. I've been distracted lately by working more than usual, okay, not more days, but more hours than usual, as I've temporarily stepped up a position. So I'm extremely sorry if my posts aren't as frequent as they have been over the past few weeks. Without any more waffling, here are the things I picked up.

 Okay, so it's not much, but I am so happy with what I found. In all fairness, I did buy the lot in the top photo on the first trip to the Primark in Kings Lynn, and the three t-shirts on the second trip two days later in Peterborough. I've found that Primark is either extremely good on one day, or extremely crap. There's either everything you want, or nothing. There is no in between.

I just had to get the stuff shown first. It's hat weather, and I found this hat adorable and it's so dang warm. I've been wearing it literally every day for work since I brought it. I've also been alternating between the awesome and cute Christmas print socks that I brought, my favourites being the middle ones with the Christmas trees on them and the black sock on the far right with the reindeer on. I'm a terror for wearing odd socks - wearing a pair of socks actually infuriates me, I don't know why, but it does - so I've been wearing different combinations every day since I brought them. They've already been washed multiple times. And the tartan print throwover? Oh my god, it is the softest thing I have ever felt and I just love the tartan print and the colours on it. It's magical. I've been snuggling up in this throwover ever since I brought it, it gives me the proper Christmas-feels. I also forgot to mention, they were all super cheap; socks were £3 for a pack of 5 pairs, the hat was £2, and the throwover was £10!

I couldn't stop myself buying the t-shirts, sorry, not sorry. Wolves are my favourite animals, so when I saw this top on sale for £2, it wasn't an offer I could possibly pass on. I think it would look great paired with a leather jacket and a pair of wet-look jeans, with a black pair of boots. The same applies for the distressed grey t-shirt, if anything, I think that would look even more awesome. I'm going through a phase of loving these kinds of tops. They can be worn for casual wear and just lounging about, or you can match them with a nice pair of jeans or shorts and a pair of boots for a simple but nice night-out look. They're just so comfy and you can't beat distressed tees.

Leaving my favourite t-shirt 'til last - The Lion King. What else can I say? I did a major happy dance when I found this, my mum and my brother both rushed to tell me that they'd seen it before I did. Regardless of the fact that it's a men's top, I don't give a single care in the world. I brought it anyway. I wouldn't care if it was a child's top, as long as I could find a size big enough to fit me, it would be mine. Lion King everything. Forever. I don't care that I'm a 20-year-old walking round wearing Lion King t-shirts.

Sizing wise, I had to go smaller than my usual size. I'm usually a UK size 10 in jeans and t-shirts, depending on the fit of the tops. I'm not a fan of very tight-fitting tops, my confidence isn't there yet, maybe one day, but not yet. For these tops, I brought the wolf one in a UK size 6, the distressed top in a size 8 and the Timone and Pumbaa one in XS as it was a men's. I had to go smaller than normal because Primark tops are really weird fitting lately and the size 10s were so massive they'd have been like dresses.

I have no regrets at all.
