How To Holiday Shop On A Budget♥Thursday, February 17, 2011
Now I know that we are still in February and the thought of summer holidays seem so far away..However in the world of retail, holiday clothes are out in force! I know that everyone loves to go and get a new wardrobe for your holiday but it can be expensive. After shopping in one of my favourite stores: Primark, I decided I would do a little post and show you some items that you can buy and look fab on holiday but won't break the bank.
♥ My boyfriend keeps saying to me " why do you keep buying holiday stuff now? Our first holiday isn't till July and the second in August.. It's February." Now one tip I have for holiday shopping is - Buy Early. Come June/July or whenever the sun comes out those holiday clothes are going to fly out the door. I have left it before to a few weeks before and I've found that the size I wanted wasn't there or the colour or it was replaced on the shelf by a woolly jumper. Get in there early.
♥ Primark can always be a bit of a hassle- if you can go either early in the morning or in the afternoon on a weekday when the shop is most quiet and you can go try things on in the changing room.
Best Buys At Primark:
Flip Flops: most of my flip flops are from Primark- I look for ones that have a slight grip so they're not too slippy when walking round the pool. Primark at the moment have a great selection of £1.50 havaiana inspired styles. £6.00 + Sandals which are really pretty and more for night time wear and these gorgeous flower flip flops which were an amazing £2.50.
Bikinis: There are some really gorgeous bikinis in store at the moment, there are 2 packs where you get 2 bikinis for £6.00. I picked up a neon pink triangle and leopard print set. For £3.00 each you can't knock it.
Sunglasses: I could of bought about 10 pairs, there is such a vast choice of sunglasses, I love the detailed ray ban esque sunnies but they look really silly on me, I picked up two aviator floral style sunnies for £1.00 each which are gorgeous and pretty :) and some basic Silver aviators which never go wrong for £2.00. At these prices you can afford to buy doubles so that if they break you have a back up.
Hair Accessories: As I have very long hair and being a total sun worshipper, I like to tie it out of the way in the day on holiday, however your hair doesn't need to be boring. I have found numerous headbands,headscarves, Flower clips and bow clips to add to your holiday hair up do.
So there we go, my top holiday buys from Primark. I am pretty much sorted for holiday clothes wise so I'm just praying for summer to get here so I can wear it all!
Hope you all have a lovely Thursday evening, I am feeling quite productive today as I went to uni and wrote 1300 words of my essay in just under 2 hours, I'm gonna try and finish the rest at the weekend, so going to have a nice chilled night and catch up with last nights Gossip Girl and Tuesday nights 90210. I have to say I am very excited about my TV catch up ! ♥
