Mid size & Affordable Clothing Haul

Whoops, she’s at it again! After last week’s post where I discussed managing my stress levels and workload, I decided to treat myself to a bit of retail therapy (work hard/play hard and all that jazz) and share with you the latest summer sale deals I’ve found and the latest bargains on the high street.

For this post I’ve been exploring Primark, New Look and Top Shop for the latest affordable mid sized fashion for the everyday woman. Below you’ll see items across the board: tops, dresses, trousers and hopefully it’ll inspire you and your wardrobe.


I found a bodysuit which fits me! With a longer body (I’m 5″7 and struggle to find bodysuits long enough for my body) this adjustable yellow vest style bodysuit is cute and will be perfect to mix with more neutral colours of the coming Autumn season.

This jumper is extremely long but with the cut out shoulders and on trend colour pallettes, this piece is perfect to tuck into jeans or a skirt.

This high neck burgundy top has low cut out arms which only just covered my bra so this may be worth considering for the warmer months, however, it would be a fantastic transitional piece teamed with a long sleeved black top.

The skirt looks like a burberry rip off but these colours are going to be big in the next few months so keep an eye open for similar styles!

This crop sleeveless Tee teamed with higher waisted trousers like these cargo trousers or the paperbag waist coral denims are ideal for active days out and I’ve seen these types of outfits paired with big chunky combat style boots which would ease you into the army style fashion which is also a huge trend at the moment.

Top Shop

Looking classic in this short sleeved tee, I felt comfortable. However, I think I would have preferred it either shorter in the body or longer to tuck in.


These leggings were by far the most comfortable, with their thin fluffy lining, these leggings made me feel super sporty and would pair really well with a white crop top. However, with a price tag of around £25, these leggings are on the pricer side.

New Look

Onto the dresses! I’ve got a wedding reception to go to soon so I tried on a few different skater style dresses because they suit my figure the most and make me feel the most comfortable as I can eat and drink what I like without worrying about bloating!


I hope you feel inspired by this latest collection of clothes. I also tried something new with videos in this article, what did you think? Should I do some more like this in the future?

Until next time.
