Faux fur and florals – a few bits from Primark

I popped into Primark a couple of times earlier this month in order to choose some things I wanted for Christmas and to pick up a few presents for other people.  I’ve always rated the range of accessories available and never fail to leave without a piece of jewellery or a scarf or gloves or socks…

I thought I’d share a few of the pieces I bought, as I’m really enjoying wearing them.

My favourite item is this faux fur monochrome scarf, which I keep seeing everywhere on social media.  I’ve worn mine with a range of different jackets and it looks great with denim or leather.  I wear a lot of black, so it helps lighten up some of my outfits!  It cost £10 which may seem a little pricey for Primark, but it’s really good quality and very snuggly!

My second item is this reindeer woolly pom-pom hat.  This was a real bargain as it was marked as £3, but when I got to the till I found it had been reduced to £2.  I’ve been wearing to walk the dog mostly as I want to get some wear out of it before the end of the festive season.

I adore wearing hats; I wish as a society we still wore hats like they did in the early half of the 20th century.  I’ve wanted a fedora for ages, so I was over the moon to find this one for a mere £7.  I love it!

My final item is this lovely pair of floral stilettos.  I haven’t actually worn these out yet as I haven’t had an occassion to really dress up recently.  I’ve wandered round the house in them and they seem to be really comfortable.  The fabric is quite silky feeling and the bright, floral pattern is quite summery.  I’m thinking these will look great with a pair of black skinny jeans for a smart/casual look.  These cost £12 – bargain!

I’m slowly catching up with writing the posts I have planned – I have a charity shop haul and a Christmas pressie post lined up – and I’m aiming to post 2-3 times per week in the new year.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very happy new year and I’ll see you in 2015.
