Collective Haul! (Primark, Topshop, Miss Selfridge and more!)

Hello lovely people, and thank goodness it's Friday!

Today, I have got a bit of a haul post for you, which I am really happy about as I have been trying to get this up for ages! I've been having a bit of difficulty with my camera, lighting and backdrops, which has made things a bit difficult for me in terms of getting some decent photos ready for you, but thanks to the lovely sunshine we've had this week, I've been able to get outside in the garden and go a bit snap happy!
So, what I have got here to show you are basically all the clothes and accessories I have collected over the past two months. 

Let's get on with it.

Drop Arm Palm Tree Print Top, Topshop , £26.

Mint Green Cropped Tie-up Shirt, £9.99 

Aztec Print Sheer Top, Primark.(I think this was about £8)

Parrot Print Crop Top, Primark, £4.

Playsuit, Miss Selfridge, £37

Rust Chinos, Next, £29.

Floral Vest, Primark, £6.

Petites Floral Print Playsuit, Miss Selfridge, £37 (*Now in the Sale online for just £22!*)

Please excuse my foot for sneaking it's way into this one. It's such an attention seeker.

Zebra Print Scarf, Primark, £4

Swallow Print Scarf, Primark, £4

Accessories, all Primark (see below for details)

Ivory Hair Flower, Peacocks ( received as a present).
Nautical Flower Hair Clips, £1.50, Primark.

Earrings, Primark (about £3-£4)

Aviators, £1. Red Floral Bow Headband, £2.
Both pairs of earrings were about £3-£4 from Primark.
Pink/Multi Floral Wire Headband (received as present).

Cat Pendant Necklace (long chain), Primark, £3

Coral Crepe Shorts, Miss Selfridge, £29.

Playsuit, Primark, £5.

Nautical Scarf Chain Necklace, Primark, £4.
(I like to wear this as a headband).

Sorry not to be exact on some of the Primark prices, I forgot to keep the tags of the accessories so now I'm not 100% sure what I paid, but I'm sure the numbers listed are pretty close, give or take 50p, perhaps.

I am loving the cropped Palm-tree print top from Topshop, and have been enjoying wearing it with a pair of red high-waisted shorts. I'm now looking to get my hands on some pastel high-waisters (lilac) and I think it will look great with them. The top hangs quite loose, but is a really flattering shape and cut. Love it!
I also adore the two Miss Selfridge playsuits and the coral culotte shorts, as I think they are lovely, summery colours.
As for Primark, you can't go wrong stocking up on your summer essentials there, in my book. I think that the little black bow-print playsuit was absolutely bargainous at just £5, and they had lots more options in for the same price, though unfortunately not in my size. I've since ordered one the same as this but plain red with navy trim, and a strapless striped/sunflower print one from Ebay, because I was so annoyed to have missed out on them! These babies are just ideal for pulling on after a long, hot day on the beach, and are also perfect for wandering round in on your hols as they are really thin and airy.
The mint-green cropped shirt, would you believe, is actually from the kids section at New Look (age 14-15). If you are petite, like me, then I would highly recommend having a root around in there, because you can often find the same things that are in the main collection for a fraction of the price! I'd say the teens sizings are quite generous, too, as a dress I picked up in age 14-15 was actually too big for me!

I don't feel that I need to go on and on about each individual piece, as you can see what is there. But I will say that I'm really happy with everything I got and have been living in all of it!

I hope you enjoyed this sneaky little peek into my shopping bags, OOTDs feauring some of these little treasures coming soon, just as soon as I can rope the Mr into playing cameraman!

Hope you're all enjoying a relaxing Friday night, whether you're having a quiet one at home or are heading out to party it up!
