Holiday Shopping - Top 5 Primark Pieces Of The Moment

Bonjourno! Yesterday the weather reached 31°C here (I know!!! Proper sweaty hair-stuck-to-your-head kinda weather) which has really got me in the mood for my holiday! On Thursday my family and I are jetting off to Menorca for a sunny two weeks away, which is going to be pure bliss if I do say so myself. I don't want to make you too jealous so I won't go on about mojitos, beaches, glass-bottom boats and sun loungers too much (hehe). 
Recently I went to Primark to do a bit of holiday shopping, and I have decided to share with you my top five favourite holiday purchases. Primark have lots of lovely summer pieces in at the moment, including lots of print maxi dresses and shorter strappy dresses. There's some gorgeous Disney tops (unfortunately my 'The Little Mermaid' top didn't make the top five holiday essentials list) and pretty statement necklaces which appear to be very popular at the moment. If you're shopping for your holidays or just summer in general, pop these inexpensive treats on your list!

1. The Playsuit - Floral Denim Playsuit, £12.00

I love love love playsuits and have quite a few of them. I think they're pretty, cute and can be worn with flip-flops on the beach or with heels and a blazer on a night out - versatility is always a winner with me! I love the floral print on this playsuit, and the light denim-y material makes it light and comfy to wear - perfect for the sun and hot days. The cut-out detail on the back is a cute touch and adds a little bit of difference (and flesh) to an otherwise simple playsuit.

2. The Dress - Patterned Dress, £5.00
For just a fiver, this is one of my favourite purchases. On holiday, summer dresses are perfect - they're comfy, light, can once again be worn with flip-flops or heels and look really pretty. There were so many printed dresses in Primarks - all different styles, sizes and colours - that it was really hard to choose one, but I finally settled for this little number. The vibrant pattern is super summery and the turquoise colouring brings out your tan (bonus!). 

3. The Headband - White Wired Headband, £1.50 
When on holiday, you want to look nice and summery, however you have to dress suitably for the sun too. Wired headbands are perfect for hot summer days as they keep your hair out of your eyes and face, but look pretty and stylish at the same time. You just wrap these around your head and tie at the top and voila, a ten-second hairdo. Once again Primark had a huuuge selection of headbands, wired and non-wired. 

4. The Vest Top - Elephant Print Loose-fit Vest Top, £3.00
Tight vest tops can get a bit too tight on hot days, and sometimes you want something a bit cooler and floatier. I picked up this loose-fit vest top for just £3.00 - it's comfy, light and I love the elephant print! I think this would also be perfect to throw on over a bikini if you're heading up from the beach to get some lunch. 


5. The Necklace - Simple Silver Chain Necklace, £1.50
I've told you once and I'll tell you again, less is sometimes more. I prefer more simple accessories - I do love the statement necklaces that are circling the fashion world right now, but they're not really me. I always opt for simple necklaces and this necklace is at the top of my favourite necklace list right now (I don't really have a favourite necklace list... that would be weird). This necklace goes with pretty much anything and adds a teeny tiny bit of glamour to any casual outfit. 10/10 Primark!

I hope you enjoyed this little insight into what's in Primark at the moment, and hopefully you can take some inspiration from this if you are going holiday shopping yourself. On the topic of holidays, yesterday I lived up to my Ultimate Bargain Queen title and picked up a Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Mist (SPF 20) for just £2.25 from Tesco! I've seen them in most shops, ranging from £7.50-£10.00 and was planning on picking one up. However, after having a quick browse at the reduced section in Tesco I found one that was full and in fine condition, it just had a few dents in the side! As I'm just going to shove it in my beach bag, a few dents on the side really doesn't matter to me so I whipped it up for just £2.25 and saved a small fortune. Lesson of the day: always check out the reduced sections.
