OOTD – The £10 Primark outfit – avoiding shopping mistakes.

Hi guys, so the title is a teeny bit of a stretch, those boots did not come from Primark. The rest of this ensemble did though.

I was having a little shop the other day and came across this checked smock dress in the sales for £5. The print I loved instantly, but I was a bit unsure about the cut, but after trying it on I decided this was a do. This is something I’m going to have to remind myself to do in future;
a) It breaks me out of my comfort zone.
b) It stops me making any hideous clothing mistakes.
c) It’s only a bargain if you actually wear purchase, not just chuck it in the back of the wardrobe. (Go on admit it, we’ve all been there).

To go with this I picked up some accessories in contrasting colours.

The burgundy soft knit tights were a steal at £2, The snood was also at £2. I had already seen on another girls blog Justalittlebitgingerthat Primark had some pretty costume Jewellery for as little as one pound. Though I thought her pick was really pretty this one matched my outfit better. I kind of wish is picked up both though, damn being sensible.


The cardigan and boots I already and and had pre-emoted that they would finish of this outfit. The boots are from Very.co.uk, I did a more detailed post about this HEREI. The cardigan is a hand me down from my sister, we do a lot of clothes and make-up swapping.

I’m very pleased with this outfit, I was bored of Jeans and jumpers, it’s been cold lately. This is a nice change and still quite warm.

Bye for now, Katy 🙂
