Dress: Primark, Bag: Zara (old), Sandals: Sam Edelman, Hat: Street stall in Rome, Sunglasses: Dior
I was beyond excited that I finally was able to check out Primark in London for the very first time. After seeing all those lovely UK Youtuber hauls they all made it sound like such an awesome place, kind of like Forever 21 on steroids. And indeed it was. Packed with tons of girls from young teens to new mothers with strollers to handsome dudes with side swept hair, the huge Primark on Oxford Street had something for everyone. I bought a TON... they have everything! - a couple dresses, a set of PJ, a hoodie, a nail polish set for a friend, pantyhose and bed sheets... so I was a bit worried the final amount would rack up to quite a bit. But boy was I happy at the register - the price seemed oh so right :) I love you Primark!
Among my purchases this striped dress was my favorite. I knew I had to whip it out when we finally got to Rome and the weather allowed bare shoulders and legs. I love the high neckline that makes it look conservative but classy, and the flowy skirt portion is the perfect amount of glam for a day time brunch date. The dress also comes with a skinny brown belt - Navy and brown is definitely one of my favorite color combos. But the best part of this dress? It was only 10 pounds!
We spent the day visiting the Vatican Museum, house to the Sistine Chapel, and the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. Along the way we got lost in the streets of Rome and discovered a gelato store with the biggest variety of flavors I've ever seen. Yum!
