With the appearance of a new season, I decided that my wardrobe needed updating so this article is a review of those clothes bought for my wardrobe in the hope it might inspire your own creative clothing endeavours.
Before buying anything new, I have started a new seasonal routine of packing away the old seasons clothing into a box ready for next year, and unpacking the current seasons wear: jumpers, long sleeved t-shirts, jeans, etc. Doing this eliminates duplicate clothing and allows me to see easily what I needed, so for instance, this season I really needed long sleeved tops, cardigans, and anything warm for the cooler months.
Disclaimer, these products were all purchased from Primark and were each under £15 so are an absolute steal!
The first piece I picked up was a classic wide striped, long sleeved top. Soft and versatile, this is a must own for anyone looking for a simple top to combine with coloured bottoms or jumpers.
The second piece I picked up was an interesting suede effect burgundy skirt with feature black buttons, which surprisingly are functional! When I first tried the skirt on it felt unusual. My usual go to skirt is stretchy, short and black so to wear something that didn’t have the same give was strange but not uncomfortable. If you’re following me on social media, you may have seen that I posted a picture on my Twitter and received comments that the skirt reminded them of the 90s so it also holds some nostalgia as well.
My third piece was a lovely, on trend, longline, long sleeved cardigan with ribbed sleeves and hemline. It is super soft and feels more expensive than what I paid for it. It features deep pockets that do not pull away from the shape of the jumper which produces a slender and straight silhouette.
My last item of clothing was a short sleeved blush pink lace top. Being a long crop, this shape really complimented my body type and pulls attention away from the more problem areas of my figure (I.e hips). I paired this with leggings and a mini skirt in black but this pastel colour is versatile and could be mixed with other dark colours for an autumnal look or lighter colours for spring next year.
Retail therapy is definitely my downfall and since shopping at the weekend I have really fancied another.
Must… have… self…. control…
