Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope that you’re all indulging yourselves in the much needed R+R that you deserve. I strongly believe in de-stressing from our day-to-day lives to take a breather, with family, friends + even yourself! For me, alone time is the key to my sanity. As outgoing + friendly as I can be, I need equal parts of silent time by myself.
I wanted to share with you some fashion finds that I recently stumbled upon. While I was *last minute* Christmas shopping, I found some great steals at one of my favorite stores, Primark! To me, Primark is like the Ikea of clothing—it has anything + everything you could ever imagine. I will raise caution though, you have to be selective when you shop here.
- You’re going to want to throw everything in your shopping tote because of how inexpensive it is, but it does add up if you’re not careful!
- Feel for the quality—does it feel durable? soft? rich in color?—although the price point is low, it sometimes means that you’re going to have to give a little in the quality department. And that’s okay! Some pieces aren’t meant to last more than one season, I usually shop for my trendier items at stores like Primark. I don’t believe in spending on fashion that’s going to *go out of style* the next season!
What I’m Wearing
— Scarf: Primark ($7.00)
— Leggings: Primark ($12.00 on sale!)
— Sweater: MISSGUIDED
If there’s one area where Primark gets an A+ from me, it’s in their accessories apartment. You can always find cute, affordable items that are on trend. The good news is, scarves never go out of style! I love wearing them to not only keep me warm in the cold Philly winters, but to add depth to any outfit. These leggings are SO comfortable—like, I was shocked. They have a thick band at the waist that keep them from falling down, + to my surprise, they don’t stretch out throughout the day, at all! I’m living for the acid wash print on them, which is something that I don’t usually go for. I just think that it adds so much to a basic legging—just imagine if these were just plain grey… BORING! Hey, I can switch it up every now and then.
As you can see, my style is extremely monochromatic. I love light and airy colors just as much as I love my deep, dark colors (well, just black really… #AllBlackEverything). The scarf has a thin line of silver glitter running throughout it, which you already know I’m all about. If it sparkles, I’m buying it.
Hey… If all you own is white, grey and black, it makes matching and styling THAT much easier!
Let me know where you like to find your on-trend pieces, I’m always looking for new stores!
