It has been so long since I have done one of these blog posts! Gosh, I miss the traditional blogs I used to do! I promise, I will be doing them more often! I actually did not even think I would be posting a blog today. My original plan was to take a picture of my #OOTD for Instagram and advertise my latest YouTube videos. But after seeing the photos my bf took of me on his IPhone, I knew these had to be for more than just Insta. It is actually perfect timing too because the first Primark store in the U.S. opened up near me, and I couldn’t be more excited. So why not talk about the mania it is causing?!
Back on topic, I went yesterday (the second day of it being open) hesitant to what I would find. I did not know the store very well, just that the prices are nearly too good to be true. IT WAS MAGICAL! There are four floors that include women’s and men’s clothing, a kids section, shoes, accessories, home, lingerie, pajamas and plenty more that I probably didn’t see. I was quite overwhelmed to say the least. But after giving a pep talk, and pushing my way through the crowds, I was pleased by what I found. The styles are very up to date with trends we are seeing for this fall: simple, chunky sweaters, blanket scarves, chambray, suede, and ripped denim. They offer a variety of colors and sizes and the prices are to die for. I purchased two items: a checkered chambray blouse and this long blush sweater. I am so in love with this sweater! It is the comfiest thing I own and so versatile! Talk about being a beautiful color too!
For this cool, crisp saturday, I paired it with some ripped denim, a sleeveless, white blouse, some flat sandals and my favorite reversible bag. It made for an easy and cozy pairing!
For a girl who is a newbie to Primark, I am pleasantly surprised and very happy with the new style department store.
Until next time!
