This wasn't browsing though, I set off with a mission on my shopping trip yesterday.. I was after a pair of yellow cropped skinny jeans from GAP. Was I successful? Yes and no..
My first stop was, of course, GAP. I wondered in and my eyes gravitated to a pair of yellow jeans. But they were boyfriend style.. boo!! Ah well, I'll try them on I thought. I looked around the rest of the shop, disappointed that I couldn't find any coloured skinny jeans. I was about to give up when I suddenly found a whole load of them hiding in a corner of the shop - yay!! No yellow ones, but plenty of other colours, blue, green, pink, grey.. I grabbed a blue pair. I know it's not even close to yellow, but I have green, orange and pink already. Blue is a great colour to go for. Classic.
In the changing room I was not disappointed, the jeans fitted like a glove which I was a bit surprised about (I grabbed an 8 and a 10 - the 8 was ok but the 10 looked best) I was expecting them to get stuck around my thighs - whilst checking out jeans on the GAP website all the reviews for this style said they come up very small.. I was expecting to need a 12 or even 14. I got lucky perhaps.. could be because I'm short maybe?
Taking them to the checkout, I suddenly noticed a big sign stating that everything in the shop (apart from sale items) has 30% off. Wooooo! So glad I didn't buy online. My jeans would have set me back £45.99 but came in at just over £32. Great. Not too pricey. More than my Tesco and Primark jeans, but these feel like heaven, the material is gorgeous.
After a frapachino pitstop (oh maaaaaaaan, those Mocha Cookie Crumble Frapachinos from Starbucks are beyond gorgeous!) I then hit up the big one. Primarni baby! If TKMax was heaving, Primark was like some sort of cattle show.. mad. Still, when you're shopping without a buggy it's much easier to navigate the crowds. I took a few dresses, tops and a pair of yellow jeans to the changing room but only came out with one of the tops and one of the dresses - luckily the dress that was £5 - the cheapest one I'd picked up. I'm in love with it, it looks fab on and such a bargain.
I do love Primark!
Well... that sums up my spending spree. The whole lot was £65 so I don't think that's too bad for what I got! Having had a look at the evidence, it seems I'm loving blue and yellow at the moment!!
What have you bought lately?
