Two new Primark purchases in this outfit with my staple ‘suit’ I reach for more than I should. I would love a blazer that really fit me but I’m either too short in the body or too small in the boob department and I’m not willing to drop big money on anything specially tailored – suggestions welcome. This one from H&M will do for now as it’s designed to be worn open and is quite relaxed. The jeans are my trust Jamies from Topshop.. I don’t think I’ll ever find a pair that fit this well, I actually just picked up another pair in a regular denim wash. They last forever because they’re a thicker denim material than your average thin stretchy skinnies these days, they just don’t seem to wear as quickly. The shoes were a total impulse purchase – although almost all things I buy from Primark are as I never know what I’ll find til I get in there. I was with an extremely enabling shopping companion but I do love them. They weren’t cheap for Primark, £25 but I think they look so much more expensive than that.. almost Kurt Geiger-esque, no? The final puzzle piece is this awesome t-shirt I found on the sale rack. It was £3 down from £6 which was a serious bargain as I’d probably have paid £20 elsewhere happily. Such a nice material, not regular tshirt jersey, more of a super fine knit with a woven neckline detail I love and of course.. sequins! It’s not often I buy things from Primark and think they look more expensive than they were, it’s usually basic stuff that nobody would look twice at but I don’t want to pay top dollar for elsewhere but each of these feel and look so nice.. very happy with my haul. If you’re interested I did film a video of the bits and bobs I’ve bought recently..

I’m sure most of you are aware of my MissBudgetBeauty channel but you may not know I’m appropaching the first birthday of my second channel, Diary Of A Spendaholic. If you’re in to outfit videos and clothing hauls that’s where I post all of that along with regular beauty box unboxings – check it out here

    What a cute outfit! I love this shirt. And the pumps. With a pair of black pants I believe I could wear this to work (I’m not allowed jeans). I love this!
