Shopping Haul :)

Recently I have been feeling my fashion mojo (if I ever had one that is!) has gone AWOL. I used to work for a fashion retailer where I had constant access to the latest must have looks, and there was a in work joke that I was never seen in the same item twice!

And since working in a non fashion retail store, I find on my days off I tend to stick to skinny jeans and a jumper. Not that I’m knocking jeans and a jumper, but sometimes I fancy looking a bit more on point. So when I visited a nearby town, Southampton, I decided to do a bit of a Primark haul, to try to readdress my fashion woes.

When I was looking around the vastness that is Primark, I decided to try on items I would normally shy away from and my moto was ‘think outside the box’. I ended up trying on a full length black dungaree’s, a denim dunagree dress and a black and white patterned skirt. For some that might be norm for them but for me that was stepping away from my comfort of my staple outfit of jeans and a jumper! And I was actually pleasantly surprised that I didn’t think I look ridic in them! After much wondering round the shop (poor Dan was waiting in Mapin looking at the electronic gadgets!) I purchased a few items.

Normally when I shop I end up buying random tops, then get home and realise they don’t go with anything I already own, so this time I invested in some outfits that I can wear. Now I’ll never be en vogue with fashion, but I at least want to try and look passable. As a side note, some would say that fashion is shallow and perhaps in some respects the would be right. But rightly or wrongly I do feel more sense of confidence when I am wearing something I feel happy in (sure there’s logic in that!).

Below I have some photo’s of what I have brought (plus an additional out fit I brought recently too).
