Tropical prints are having a maje fashion moment right now. I’m slightly obsessed and have been snapping them up left, right and centre – my wardrobe now resembles a Carmen Miranda dressing-up box. Which is obviously no bad thing.

This skirt was the result of my first jaunt into Primark in a very long while. There was a time when Primark was my everything and most of my wardrobe came from its hallowed rails… then I swung the other way entirely and developed a dangerous Whistles habit. Now I’m trying to budget once more, and Primark is my quick fix shot of shopping. This skirt was £5.99. Five-ninenty-nine. Every single person who complimented this outfit got the price of the skirt screamed at them – ‘oh you like my skirt well guess what it was FIVE-NINENTY-NINE FROM PRIMARK can you even believe it.’
Really the price just makes this little beauty even sweeter – it’s such an easy style to wear and the print really pops when paired with a simple white shirt. It’s officially my new favourite and you should expect to see it often. Hooray!
Tis a very pretty skirt! I love Primark too, it might be mainly full of tat but it’s worth it for the amazing bargains like this
I keep meaning to go back into Primark and get this – I saw it once as I rant through to get a brollie and have been thinking about it ever since! I got an awesome pair of tropical print shorts from ASOS yesterday though, so they’re keeping me perky for now!
I need to go to Primark right away. FIVE NINETY NINE!!

you look wonderful, those flats are so pretty!
Absolutely LOVE this! You look really fab in it, especially with the white shirt! It’s inspired me to go hunt through Primark for some tropical prints! Em
That is a lovely, summery & playful / fun skirt, it has to be said(love the way you styled it:)! X
£5.99! How is that even a real price for an adult-sized item of clothing?! And it looks great on you. Love the shoes too! x
I’m loving tropical prints too this Summer! I’ve got lots in my Missguided wishlist! 🙂
I feel like I need a trip to Primark very soon, such a summery print!
Wow! When I saw it on Instagram I couldn’t believe it was Primark, I’d almost given up on Primark myself. I couldn’t see the point of buying something that would fall apart after 3 washes and those ‘travelling’ seams that go across your body…grrrr!! Anyhoo, a few weeks ago I popped in and found a great jumpsuit for £15! Bargain. AND after three washes the seams are still where they’re supposed to be. Result.
ps, if you want to see my jumpsuit, it’s on my blog;
Not a shameless plug for me, it’s the only pic I have!
Great outfit, I love the tropical prints
Wow, I really like this outfit, you look fresh and very eye-catching!
Beautifully styled and what a skirt!
Lovely skirt. This tropic print is a real eye-catcher! Great outfit as always!

Gorgeous skirt! I can imagine it being really versatile and going with lots of different outfits.
I really like your blog Jen, but I’d love to see more style bloggers reflecting on how these clothes are produced so cheaply rather than just celebrating the fact.
