As January pay-day rolled around, I found myself really struggling not to treat myself to something new to add to my wardrobe. I've been trying to save money, you see. I've decided that 2020 is the year that I attempt to become more of  a 'grown up' and to stay more stable and organised. However, a quick trip into Primark spun me into a tizz when I spotted two amazing shirt jackets that I just could not go home without.

An item I've been lusting after for a while now is a simple, androgynous style shirt jacket, that's a great transitional piece as the weather begins to warm up a bit. I've been on the hunt for months, looking at the likes of COS, & Other Stories and other brands that I sadly just could not part a big chunk of my money with (because I'm a stickler for buying pricey things, not because I don't LOVE the brands).

But then Primark saved the day - I picked up these 2 amazing jackets for the cost of £40 (for both!) and I'm so so happy with them.


JACKET - PRIMARK // TEE - PRIMARK // SHORTS - GHOSPELL [GIFTED]


JACKET - PRIMARK // TOP - ZARA // BAG - GUCCI // TROUSERS - VINTAGE

I love the over-sized style of them and the colours are so chic and clean looking - perfect to pair with neutrals like I've done here. The cut of them looks so much more expensive than £20 too, and I've already had so many questions about them when wearing them!

For me, sometimes a bargain of a jacket is just as good as something you might spend £70 on in another store. I've had so many people think that these were something from COS or Zara and I think it's so cool that I've barely broke the bank on 2 brilliant pieces I'll be getting so much wear out of.

Sadly, I can't link these jackets in this post, but definitely head down to your local Primark ASAP and check them out for yourself!
