My holiday is approaching and I needed some holiday clothes but of course, I picked up a few extra things along the way! So, I’m going to share everything that I purchased in this summer-based haul and I hope you enjoy! If you want to check out what’s on offer at primark, check out their website here.
The first thing I bought is this gorgeous playsuit that has a tie back. Most of my clothes are from Primark and this cost £8 which is an absolute bargain! I think this will be perfect to throw over a bikini or to wear by itself to the beach at night when it gets a little cooler. I love the back too as I feel it looks so cute! I’m obsessing over this type of style at the moment so I’m glad I got something with this material for my holiday! I also think it’s a must-have purchase for a summer haul!
Next are the tops! The front top is actually a pyjama top but in my opinion, you can get away with it as a normal top. As for price, £5! I think it’ll be great for Spanish weather as it’s not too heavy and it keeps you fairly modest without being covered up which would lead to being too warm!
The white one at the back is a simple white top with tie up straps and cute detailing at the front. This is a staple item when on holiday as they’re sleeveless and flowy meaning you can stay as cool as possible! Now, this was the biggest bargain of the day, £2.50! Pick up as many of these as you can!
Now for shorts, the front ones, again, are pyjamas but they could totally be worn as ordinary shorts and they’re so so comfy! The colours are also so summery and the pastel is a girly touch that I’m in love with! My holiday clothes are all pretty in touch with my girlier side but I’m so happy with that as all these items are gorgeous! These shorts cost only £3! Another bonus point- they’re not see through!
Next are some black lace shorts and these have some Lycra shorts beneath them so nothing’s exposed and they also have a spilt up each legs which adds a little extra unique touch. These pair so well with anything and will be great to wear at night as you can dress them up or down. These shorts are £8, which is a little pricier but they’re also amazing quality!
Other fashion purchases
Shoes were actually my favourite thing to buy during this shopping spree! I’m not usually a shoes girl but I’m excited about these purchases! The flip flops are again from Primark but what surprises me is how comfortable these actually are! I’m shocked as usually I have to choose sandals over flip flops due to the latter being too uncomfortable, but not this time! I feel I’ll be wearing these all summer, so I’m glad I purchased them during this haul. These were only £4 and so cute. I’m especially pleased that they match well with pretty much all the outfits I bought!
Behind is some gorgeous heels I bought to pair with the dress I mentioned in my last haul which you can read here. The dusty pink is a near identical match and they’re part of the comfort range from New Look. These are the only type I wear as they’re the only heels that don’t give me blisters. They are a bit pricier at £23.99 but they’re definitely not the most expensive and I’d rather pay for comfort and style rather than just style. Blisters are one of my worst nightmares! They make walking so painful!
Pyjamas! I have such a soft spot for Winnie the Pooh and this set was an instant grab for me! I don’t think I’ve seen such a cute pair of pyjamas and they’re perfect for warm weather! They’re so lightweight. I also love the yellow shorts. Yellow in the summer is a favourite of mine as it’s such a bright colour and shows off your tan amazingly! What makes this set even better was that it only cost £6!
Next is bikinis because of course, what is a holiday somewhere sunny without the swimwear! The pink is from primark and I chose this because neon is absolutely everywhere at the minute and although I’m not totally into it, I like the pink as it’s not as ‘in your face’ as the yellow or green. I also liked the style of this top as the twist at the front is pretty cute! The bottoms are just simple bikini bottoms. These are sold separate but total to £9 so they definitely aren’t breaking the bank and it’s super cute and good quality!
The yellow set is from Hollister. I had every intention of choosing a yellow bikini and this suits my taste to a T! It’s ribbed and has a knotted front with a tie up back so I’ll definitely have to ensure to to tie it properly before I go swimming! This totalled to £24.60 and I think it’s pretty good price. I was expecting it to come close to £40 but they were on sale so it was a pleasant surprise when I came to the checkout!
So let’s start with the skincare. I first bought Let the Good Times Roll by Lush and this is one of my favourite cleansers as it smells gorgeous and is a cleanser that I had in the past and had to repurchase. I have the large tub and I can see it lasting some time!
Dr Jart Rubber mask was probably the skincare item I’m most excited about as I’ve seen these all over Instagram and they just look so fun even if they don’t exactly make a huge difference to the appearance of your skin. As well as this I bought the Oh K! Pink fizz t-zone mask which smells of cherries and bubbles up! It’s claims to be clarifying so hopefully it won’t make my oily skin even oilier!
The biore cleanser was just a top-up as I love this drugstore cleanser so much and I need a back up ready for when I run out!
I also got the St Tropez One Night Only gloss. I feel this will be good for the Summer Ball which is before I go on holiday. It should give my legs the bronze it needs for that one night! I have super high hopes for this so I can only hope it works! It’s a very useful product for Summer and isn’t something I was expecting to find in this haul!
Now the last few bits!
From Victoria’s Secret is these two body sprays. They are the sweetest most gorgeous scents you will ever smell! They’ve instantly become my favourites. Especially the cake one as it smells exactly like a vanilla cupcake. It’s the type of scent I absolutely adore! It’s definitely not for those who dislike sickly scents but I can’t get enough! The warm and cosy is also another favourite that isn’t as such like a cake but is still very sweet.
Then finally, the Ne Worry Pa bath bomb from lush. Lush are famous for their bath ballistics and this is such a winner for me. It’s quite a simple design but smells exactly like Parma violets and is one of the stronger scents. I like to go for these ones as they make your whole house smell like it once you use it. I’m so happy with this purchase!
