Primark Oversized Check Dress & A Haul!

Primark Oversized Check Dress outfit

Yesterday I published a video featuring my Primark haul from the weekend and in it I mentioned that I might make an outfit that day out of the oversized check dress I’d bought as well as the jewellery – and I did! If you want to take a look at the video including the other things I bought (my first ever haul!), here it is:

The outfit is a pretty standard spring “monochrome” for me to be honest – give me a black and white outfit and I’ll throw in something yellow or mustard coloured, obviously! Let me prove it to you with all the outfits wearing this cardigan, including a polka dot midi skirt, a Collectif dress and daffodils and a pretty old one with a polka dot shift dress. I really need to figure out a new way to wear this cardigan that isn’t with just black and white!

I wore this outfit for a trip into Leeds with my sister to see Disney on Ice, which was pretty awesome! I really regretted not dressing Disney themed for it though after seeing all the other people there (okay, all the other kids…) wearing Princess dresses. I was never allowed a “real” Disney princess dress when I was younger because they were expensive and my parents said they weren’t worth it. I can totally understand that now I’m grown up and see the prices of them, but I still begrudge them for it!
Nevertheless, I wished I’d gone for a more Disney inspired outfit this day. I’d considered trying to Disneybound a Snow White outfit or even something more obscure, but I’d been ill in the days before (food poisoning, bleh) and hadn’t had the energy.
I wasn’t sure how much of a fan of the dress I would be – it’s got a really cute check design which I always love, but it’s oversized at the waist and has flouncy sleeves. I was worried it would drown me a bit, but actually I really liked wearing it – nice and breezy for a warm spring day, and this spring day turned out to be way warmer than we expected! I actually took off my cardigan for most of the afternoon! I’m now exploring more spring dress options since I’ve got into a jeans and tee habit at the moment so want to make sure I make the most of the warmer weather – I’m really liking the airy and floral dresses at Bonmarche, but also the floaty tops at Oasis – anyone have any other suggestions?

PS: Sorry for being so squinty – was stood in full sun because I wanted to take advantage of it being out! Forgetting in the process that pics of me in the sun come out shadowy and squinty #noregrets

      Thanks, Holly! This time of year is the best to wear that yellow so I match the daffodils 😀
