Primark / Penneys (whatever you wish to call it) is so on point right now. I need everything. I can almost hear the distant cries of my empty bank account and my Mother who claims I have 'too many clothes'. Crisp white shirts, geometric print cigarette pants, all the shoes, the gingham swing dresses and the pyjamas. Oh the pyjamas. I went into Penneys last week and managed to restrain myself to just three items. The above dogtooth print shirt which was an absolute steal at 5€, a thick pair of leggings and some adorable black shoes with a double buckle.
The hounds tooth print seems to be creeping up all over the high street for AW14 which is fab if you want to rock the monochrome trend because it's the easiest way to incorporate it into your everyday wardrobe. This shirt was only left in a 14 which means it's more of a shirt dress on me but I just neatly tucked it into my high waisted leggings and away I went. It was an impulse buy but I'm so glad I bought it because I've got a few compliments on it.
To add a splash of color I painted my nails in 'Bahama Mama' from Essie and added this satchel-esqe bag that I picked up in Penneys last Christmas for 4€. Bargain. It's a nice thick pleather which is amazing quality for Primark. Most people seem shocked when I tell them it's actually from Penneys because the quality is so sturdy. It was originally 11€ but I picked it up in a pre-Christmas sale.
Aren't these shoes amazing? I wasn't sure about them at first and was hmming and haing all week over them but eventually went back and found a pair in my size. They just scream Alexa Chung to me and they really add that extra something to an otherwise simple outfit. Be warned, they cut the hell out of your ankles the first few times you wear them. Worth it though. These will probably be my most worn shoe this A/W as they go with everything.
If everyone could keep me out of Penneys so I don't go completely broke, that would be amazing. Anything you have your eye on in Penneys?
