I’m off on my holidays next week and as ever I pretty much left buying the essentials until the very last minute. Luckily for me Primark is full of wonderful bits and bobs at the moment and it’s all very reasonably priced. Here’s what I got:
Tropical Bikini Top: £8
Tropical High Waisted Bikini Bottoms: £5
I had managed to pick up a couple of cute bikinis/swimsuits a couple months ago but definitely didn’t have as many as I would have liked. This bikini set is super-cheap and cute with a bright tropical print. What I love most about it is that the top is under-wired and features straps (as opposed to strings) so it’s very supportive and flattering. The bottoms are high-waisted too so these are great if you’re a little self conscious about your stomach.
Black Swimsuit £13
I knew I wanted a swimsuit for the beach, as it gives you a bit of extra coverage which I like. What I quite often find though is that one pieces look quite childish. However, this one combines both comfort and style. It’s a super-flattering piece with gold detailing for a sophisticated finish. And at just £13 it’s a total bargain.
Flamingo Print Cover Up Dress £4
This dress features a relaxed fit and flared cut making it ideal for lounging on the beach (worn over the top of a bikini) or by the pool. I love the playful flamingo print which gives me serious tropical-vibes.
Beach Wrap £3
This bright beach wrap can be worn in multiple ways but I think I will wear it tied around my waist. It features a tropical palm tree print and comes in one size. The fabric is super-lightweight and floaty making it ideal for covering up but allowing you to still stay cool.
Embroidered Floral Tunic Dress £13
This lightweight tunic dress features a relaxed fit, pretty embroidery detailing on the chest and three-quarter length sleeves with frill detailing. I absolutely love the design of this dress and think the embroidery is just beautiful – but I have to admit to not being keen on the sleeves. I’m going to chop them off and hope for the best!
Ice Cream T-Shirt £5
This tee is probably my favourite purchase. I love the mint colour and ice cream design. It’s a nice soft, knitted T-Shirt that I think is just perfect for Summer!
Pom Pom Trim Shorts £8
Crafted from a lightweight crepe, these shorts feature a comfortable waistband, embroidery detailing and a fun pom pom trim at the hem. I love the length of these shorts as they are a little longer than most in Primark and are quite flattering.
Bead Embellished Sandals £10
Crafted from real leather, these sandals feature a vibrant and playful beaded design that I think will be perfect for warm climes.
Candyfloss Scrub Facemask £1 each
And last but not least I picked up two Candyfloss facemasks. These smell incredible (good enough to eat!) and will be ideal for getting my skin ready for the sun!
