Autumn Primark Haul

I went shopping, again! Oops! I know, I know, I have a problem. But the thing with Primark is  everything is such good value that it's so easy to get carried away (which I did). I can justify this to myself that I've lost some weight (through healthy eating and exercise) and had to get rid of a lot of items from my wardrobe, so I NEEDED to buy a few more bits for Autumn (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

I love the Autumn, and I adore Autumn fashion and Primark is a great place to go to pick up lots of key pieces to see you through, plus the prices are amazing! I went a little bit crazy so here goes:

White cable knit jumper with metal detail




This jumper was actually featured in the most recent edition of Glamour magazine. It is a fab piece for autumn. I love cable knits as they are so comfy and cosy, but the metal detail on this really amps it up and makes it stand out from your usual plain cable knit jumper. I thought I'd wear this with skinny jeans and boots or even a little skirt - as I thought it was really versatile and I will definitely get loads of wear out of it.

Navy and red tartan knit skirt



I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. It is so cute and I love the fact it's made from a fine knit material as this makes it that little bit heavier and is a lovely shape when on (plus it won't be flying up exposing my knickers, Bridget Jones style, on a blustery autumnal day!) Again I thought this would be nice dressed up with a little navy shirt or look smart with a polo neck for a more smart everyday look.

Grey polo neck jumper shirt



I really like this style of top, not only is it a 'two in one' piece so you don't have to layer up, but I think they look smart and are practical at the same time.  It is light weight but being a polo neck would make it perfect for a chilly office on an autumn day. I am a fan of polo neck tops as I hate getting a chill down my neck, so this easily made its way into my basket.

Mustard fine cable knit dress



This purchase was a little out of my comfort zone. The colour is not something I would normally choose, but I loved it and felt it was very season appropriate - so thought I'd give it a whirl. I really like the style, with the shirt collar detail - again I think this makes it a little smarter, but the knit means its still practical as well. Plus it's so easy just to throw on in the morning and go, always a winning factor with me. They also did this in grey and black, which I may have to go back and sneakily purchase ;-)

Collar detail grey jumper



Again this style is so easy to make you feel a little smarter but without sacrificing the warmth. The detail around the neck is so pretty (also means you don't have to think about jewellery, another time save!) I went safe with the grey as I felt it would go with a lot more but thy did do it in gorgeous autumnal burgundy and green.

Black high neck detail sleeveless blouse



I seem to have a theme in this haul with either neck detail or polo neck items don't I?? Ha, well this also seems to fit that theme as it's both! I really liked the metal detail on the neck and thought it would dress up an outfit easily and would go with absolutely everything. I like the 'Rock Chick' vibe and think I might wear it with my chunky boots and skinny jeans, with a smokey eye!

Burgundy cross front blouse



This is the perfect autumn piece in my eyes! I love the colour and style and think it works well for both day and evening. I've already planned to wear it with my leather skirt and a dark lip (I'm thinking NARS velvet matte lip pencil in damned) on an evening out I'm planning. I think it's the perfect transition piece from summer to autumn.

Black skinny jeans



These are a staple with me and I own loads of different colours. I like this style as they are low rise, which suits the blouses and jumper styles I like to wear. You can never have too many skinny jeans as far as I'm concerned!

Giraffe snuggle pyjamas



OMG, I cannot even describe how soft and snugly these pyjamas are! I bought them on a bit of a whim as I thought they were cute and silly, but I love them so much, they are so comfy and warm for the cool evening. I have told anyone who will listen how amazing they are and have already been back and bought a few more colour varieties in the style. At £7 these are by far my most favourite item I own right now!! I highly recommend them.

Rose gold travel mug



My morning coffee just got better! Rose gold, what could be better!

Maui & Sons dark chocolate coated coconut chips



AMAZING! I am a little obsessed with these and always stock up whenever I nip into Primark. They taste amazing and are a healthy (ish!) alternative to a chocolate bar, but they really do hit the sweet craving spot. They are £1 a bag and I sprinkle them on porridge or ice cream but more often then not eat them straight from the bag. If you love coconut give these a try, you won't regret it!

That's it! phew! I better stay in with my cosy pyjamas for the rest of October to try and avoid spending anymore money!

Have a great day!
