I’ve a busy day ahead of me today, but I thought I’d quickly pop up a short post on the Penneys (Primark) Summer range, which I spotted whilst browsing their website last night. I’m going to Spain on holiday in July, and buying summer items can be pricey, and also when you live in Ireland, it can feel like a slight waste of money when you don’t get much use from summer clothes when we usually spend June, July and August wearing jeans, jumpers and a rain coat!
But this is where Primark comes in, I love how they have such a great range of affordable, yet on trend pieces for Spring/Summer ’16. The photo above shows just a few of my favourite picks from this season’s collection. The rose gold sunglasses are a steal at €3, the tshirts are a bargain at €5 each (and those are just two that I’ve picked from a huge number of styles!) The bangles are on my must have list at €5 for the stack, they will add to so many outfits, bringing some summer colour to a plain t-shirt and shorts!
Also where else would you get a playsuit or denim shorts for the grand ole sum of €7 each? And you know I couldn’t possibly leave out some Disney items, the flip-flops are a perfect bargain for the beach at €3, or if trainers are more your thing, the black Mickey Mouse shoes are only €10 (I need to get my hands on those ASAP!) The most expensive item in the selection above is the gorgeous patterned shopper bag, which I think would be great for the beach/shopping/markets etc, at €16, which is still one of the cheapest handbags you’ll find on the high street, and I mean, look at the beautiful detailing on it, its gorgeous!
So if you were to purchase each of the 9 items pictured above it would add up to the grand total of €124. That’s €124 for 2 tops, shorts, flip-flops, trainers, sunglasses, bangles, a playsuit and a handbag? Now think of how many items you may pick up in New Look, River Island or Topshop for that amount…. Nowhere near as many, eh?
If you’re looking for some nice new summer outfits then I suggest you hot foot it to your nearest Primark or Penneys store ASAP, cos this stuff won’t be around for long! I’m counting down the minutes til I get paid on Wednesday so I can sprint straight down to get my hands on those bangles and trainers!
