I was recently in Amsterdam and wanted to do something a little different than the usual things. I wanted to talk fashion in front of this beautiful building. More specifically…Travel Fashion on a BUDGET.
If this sort of post is not your typical cup of tea, I completely understand! I know it’s not for every one.
A lot of people think that when you are saving to travel, you cannot do anything in your personal life. All you do is save save save and I want to tell you that is not correct! (thankfully, I don’t think I could cope with saving all the time) I really love to shop, specifically seasonal clothes. So today I am going to combine travel x budget fashion.
Did I really go to Primark and buy a whole outfit for under £30? Why yes I did. Woo! This post is not sponsored, gifted or encouraged by them in any way. It’s genuinely how/where I get my outfits. I hate that people call this throw away fashion because… well..I really don’t throw it away after 1 wash!
Does anyone remember how ‘cool’ it was to hate Primark in secondary school? I actually refused to go in to the shop, fearing someone would see me.
I couldn’t choose between the red or green skirt for this outfit that I had pictured so I ended up buying both! (update: I have since bought the black version too) If you buy a similar, the green one is just as nice. I have a pear shape body and I found the skirts to be so flattering! The sweater is from the basic section which is why it is so cheap and I’d personally wear it more as a t-shirt and layer it. It’s located where they keep the plain vest tops but I had to go back several times because it was a popular item and often completely sold out in this colour (they have other colours).
The sweater is kind of see through so I wore a Primark vest top (bought at a different time – £1.50 regardless) underneath just in case but if you have the confidence to go out with that and a bra on? You go girl. I also got so cold I stole a hoodie from my partner, which is coincidentally also from Primark.

…and that is it for this post! I did have something written which was a really heavy subject and something I am not fully educated on so I thought it was best left unsaid for now. One day I will publish it. I hope you enjoyed this one off post and let me know if you enjoyed it and want more!!
