SUMMER BARGAINS


Although I'm now working, and in spite of a couple of fairly [note: eye-wateringly] heavy shopping sprees at the start of my job, I've now got into a routine of spending as little, and saving as much as I can.

Then BAM, just like that you're hit with car insurance, holiday payment and road tax in one swift blow. And so, shopping for said [definitely non-essential but 100% needed] holiday has been sporadic and reliant almost entirely upon Primark.

Which, when you find little gems like this, is no bad thing.

The bikini saved me from spending a small fortune on an ill-fitting set, and thankfully ended that annual ordeal of getting half naked in a million changing rooms, under harsh lighting and behind precariously narrow curtains. By this stage I would've bought anything that didn't make me look like a) a marshmallow or b) an effeminate boy, but I'm glad to say that after trying and re-trying it does neither. A win I'd say!

The shirt and shorts were my guilt-buys today, although I can safely say that said guilt has morphed into a quiet hum [funny that], and is quickly hushed by the OOOOOOOOOOO from my inner hipster-magpie at the sight of that distressed red denim and studs. Oh the studs!

On a slight aside, it feels so good to be writing again and, after a quick stop off at Boots and Superdrug today for some holiday essentials I thought I'd plan a few posts on my personal holiday favourites - hopefully some of you might have some recommendations too!

'Til then.

Hello Danni,
I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's fashion luxury brands, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would help me a lot :)
Here is the link of my survey: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/s/2WNTNCY
Thank you very much!

Lou ♥
Ps:That is such a cute swimsuit!
