English Wardrobe on a Budget

This summer during my stay in England I spent a fair amount of time in Primark shops in Winchester and Southampton. To give Americans a comparative to understand Primark it is most similarly like a giant shop full of Target clothing (Merona). The clothes are of decent quality, fashionable, and easy on the wallet.

Over the years, it’s become a tradition for our family to do a big Primark sweep before leaving England. I still wear things I purchased years ago. In my experience Primark clothes have lasted well and I get compliments all the time on my Primark scores. I went last Thursday and bought several things for myself and my daughter all for under £40.

I love to look nice, but I hate to spend a fortune on my wardrobe so Primark is perfect for me!

Here’s a look at my new pieces from my English excursion 2016:
