I bought this lovely lot during one of my London weekends to spend time with Rob, meet up with old school friends and of course shop! I'd heard lovely things about Primark recently so I decided to head to the Oxford Street store early Saturday morning. Now, Oxford Street Primark on a Saturday is usually a place to avoid at all costs if you would like to keep your sanity, however I was just early enough to miss the real mayhem and surprisingly actually enjoyed the process (instead of feeling as if I'd slipped into hell... no kidding). Anyway, I'm soo happy with the items that I got and feel that they're all going to be well and truly loved as Autumn comes round.
So, first off I bought these two lovely pairs of loafers. I'd had my eye on some Office ones very similar to the brown pair for ages but they're so expensive for what they are that I had been seriously put off. Therefore, when I saw these ones I did a li'l dance of joy! Admittedly at £12 they are at the top end of the Primark shoe price range, however they look really good quality and I know that I'm going to be wearing these constantly through the Autumn. There was such a great selection of black flats that I had to spend some time deciding which ones to go for and I'm so happy with these little faux suede ones, especially as they were only £8! I also couldn't help these maroon frilly socks from falling into my basket. Anyone who knows me will know that I'm a bit of a frilly sock enthusiast - I wear them with everything. Oh I can't wait for Autumn to come so I can start getting frilly again!

|Slouchy Aztec Patterned Cardigan: £12|
As soon as I saw this red shirt, I was drawn to it like a magnet! It's such a gorgeous colour and the pattern is so pretty. I know that Primark also does a dress made of the same material which has been flitting around the blogging world but sadly I couldn't find it. Anyhow, I was so happy with this shirt that I wore it the same day that I bought it. Always a good sign! As I have a serious weakness for shirts I also picked up this black floral print one. It did have a very tacky plastic chain attached to the collar, but once I'd whipped that off I had a big smile on my face. I like that Primark are paying more attention to the little details now, such as giving items nice buttons (these little white ones are really cute), as that makes their clothes look, well, less Primark-y I suppose! Finally we come to my favourite item of all; my slouchy Aztec cardie! This cardigan was a total impulse buy as it's quite different from my usual knitwear, but I luuuurv it. I honestly have hardly taken it off. It's so comfy and just looks great with so many different outfits. Yay for impulse buys!
So there you are. I hope that you like my li'l Primark shop. If you follow my Instagram then you'll know that I've spent the last couple of weeks catching up with friends which has been so lovely, as well as working at the Eastbourne airshow for a bit of cash. I've now only got a couple of days until I start my work experience, eek! I'm not really sure what to expect but I'm buzzing with excitement!
