I've got another outfit post for you all today, including one of my newest Primark purchases that like always, I have fallen in love with. I picked up three tops last week and at £4, this one was the most expensive. No lie. A mint peplum top for £2 and a peach peplum blouse for £3 also fell into my shopping bag. It's dark grey; a colour category many of my clothes seem to fall under, and has that neppy texture I'm simply obsessed with right now. Initially I found the neckline to be seriously restricting (note: my head hardly fit through it, and my head isn't that big), so after some 'controlled stretching' the neckline has luckily loosened up a bit. Stretching seams and hearing the usually-dreaded 'crack' noise is something I became accustomed to as a Textiles student.
For me, this skirt is the ultimate epitome of summer. It isn't jumbled with a million colours, something I am grateful of as quite frankly, bright colours scare me. The most out-there purchase I have made this year is a mint jumper costing £8 from H&M that I bought a few months ago. It's borderline neon and will probably remain in the depths of my wardrobe until I become considerably more colour-confident. Anyway, back to the skirt - it is lightweight, floaty, sheer without being revealing and is a great length. As much as I would love to assume a maxi skirt would be of a good length, I can't...being 5'2 usually calls for a session of taking up the hem.
My next post will be about my adventures in Rome last week, including highlights, recommendations and numerous food snaps. I've been doing a lot of travelling so far this summer, after visiting Rome my family started a whole British road trip by car/train sort of thing, and so far I have been to Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow. Still got Cardiff, Cambridge and Norwich on the cards so do look for some travel-related posts in the near future. I picked up a few things in Scotland that I can't wait to share!
