For the last 7+ years I have always headed to Primark as early as January to get some bikini's from them. As much as I like to invest in quality, I have always really rated them for their swimwear, they last well, the fit is good and the prices as you would expect - ridiculously fair. This was my second visit this year, I didn't like what they had to offer in February. I sized up with the bottoms as they do make them a little skimpy but the tops were true to size. I picked up the navy striped version of the below as well but the green and orange version was so much nicer so went with this one.

Unusual for me, I went for one with a clasp fitting, I normally like to be able to tie them up as tight as possible but the fit on this one was great. I love the option to add straps but I like to have at least one bikini I can wear and not worry about strap marks. It is not the most bust enhancing style but I would prefer not to have strap marks and the cups are softly moulded so it isn't too bad.
|£10 for the set|
I grabbed this without even trying it on, it was £5 and I thought the print and colours were gorgeous. Again, not hugely flattering as it squashes my chest slightly but so easy to pull on and wear when I'm running about after the kids. Holiday wear only - far too much leg would be on show minus a tan in this country! Oh and it has pockets, double result for Mummy duties!
Whilst queueing I saw the below hangers. My wardrobe is in need of a tidy up again (I aim for every 3 months) so I thought these would cheer it up and entice me. Time isn't on my side as always but they have worked as far as a little colour co-ordinated organising has started to happen. They are great for not leaving hanger marks as they are felt covered.
|£4 for 10|
Not from Primark but whilst I am on the holiday wardrobe radar I clocked these in BHS, from Miss Selfridge. All leather, even the soles and with that amount of jewels on I didn't think the £35 price tag was that unwarranted.
My big Summer holiday isn't until October this year so I am hoping that we have a good one here in the UK so I can get a bit of colour. Anyone else buying months in advance like me?!
