If any of you have booked a last minute holiday, this post is definitely one for you. A few weeks ago I went on my holiday to Spain (can I go back please?) and I was in desperate need of some new summer dresses to take with me. During a last minute shopping dash I decided to pop into Primark and see what they had to offer. I was searching through the last of their summer clothes and I came across this gorgeous navy blue wrap dress. I don’t know what it is, but recently I’ve just been gravitating towards navy items a lot. I think it’s a nice twist on black clothing (which I wear way too much) and it makes an outfit look much more sophisticated.
The wrap style on this dress is so flattering, it nips you in all the right places and creates a lovely silhouette. I was also really impressed with the material of this dress, as the quality of Primark clothes can be a bit hit and miss. But the material is lovely, light and floaty, perfect for a holiday and keeping you nice and cool whilst you stroll around in the heat.
However I still haven’t told you about the best part – I merrily took my way to the cash desk to pay for my new dress, only to find that it was reduced to £5!! I couldn’t believe my luck, it was reduced from £12, which I thought was a reasonable price and was happy to pay, so to find out it was only £5 made me love it more. I think that’s the great thing about shopping in between seasons, you can find a lot of bargains from the season just passed. If you’re happy to buy items which may need storing away for a few months or if like me, you might be going away to a place where the weather is different to here in the UK, then you really can find yourself some great items at a fraction of the price.
Speaking of a change in seasons, the print of this dress make this piece a great transitional piece for autumn. It incorporates some gorgeous autumnal colours, including navy, orange and green – it is something which I think could easily be worn over a t-shirt or a long sleeved top, with a pair of knee high boots, to create a lovely autumnal outfit. So if you’re looking for a bargain holiday dress or one which will see you through autumn too, this one is for you.
