Maxing it up: The Primark Summer Staples

Primark Neppy Tee / Primark Maxi Skirt / Primark Collar Necklace / New Look Belt / New Look Bracelet / Dorothy Perkins Ring / New Look Sandals / Topshop Sunglasses

Just a quick Sunday post from me today ladies as I'm still on my little weekend away with the boy in London but I've got a bit of time whiles he's out for a run so I thought I'd show you a couple of new summer staples I've recently got from our beloved Primarni. Until a couple of weeks ago I avoided maxi skirts like the plague. Being a definite shorty at only 5"3 I thought they'd swamp me and my little legs so I resigned myself to simply looking on with envy while all the taller girls walked around in gorgeous maxi skirts and dresses. However, after seeing how great other small girls looked in there maxis, realising how versatile they are and spotting this £10 black bargain in Primark I thought 'what they hey!' and ran with it to the till. I did have to get the smallest size and use a belt to make sure it doesn't drag on the ground too much but I totally love it. It hides all sorts of 'I've eaten too much ice cream' sins and nips me in at the smallest part of my frame making this one super flattering piece of clothing. As it's so high wasted I usually pair it with a crop top (how surprising) but as I had these photos taken after work I'd actually put it with two of my other Primark summer staples- the cream neppy tee and aztec collar necklace- for a slightly smarter but still laid back feel which was livened up by the chunky accessories. I believe these both came in at a bargain £4 and I pair them with different things all the time so they were great little buys. Oh Primark, you have been good to me this Summer! There will be a nice snap happy lifestyle post coming tomorrow or Tuesday about my weekend but it's been really lovely and I hope yours has been too!
