Primark – The Spaghetti Strap Cami

IMG_7448

Primark has done it again; meet the ‘get your arms out’ spaghetti strap Cami.

If you are a Primark enthusiast, you will know that every Spring/Summer, Primark introduces an affordable upper-body wardrobe basic in a variety of colours & patterns. Primark has previously given us the Scalloped Top, the Bandeau, the Peplum and the Jersey Basic. So, it’s fair to say Primark has got our backs (and fronts) well-covered.

So get your purses at the ready because the Spaghetti Strap Cami costs only £4.00! Let’s just put that into prospective – that’s a Boots Meal Deal (or a Big Mac Meal depending on your taste).

I bought the Cami in a Butterfly Print, Plain Coral, Plain White and Plain Black – purely because they suit my colouring a little better. However, I did see the same Cami in Mint, Lilac, Baby Pink, Orange, Green and a Blue-toned Geometric Print.  So there is a colour to suit all!

For £4.00 I’m not expecting hours of craftsmanship but I do really like the quality for Primark. The material has a sheer handle to it without revealing all – if you know what I mean!

My body shape is an top heavy ‘apple’, so it’s really unlike me to wear a spaghetti strapping, reveal all number. (By reveal all, I mean bingo wings!) I’m thinking a few bicep curls, and barely there tan might help my confidence. So although I am not yet brave enough to show you the Cami on, I will tell you that the V-line is very flattering, and just under the bust there is a diagonal line on each side to allow for a more tapered drape.

Will you be investing your £4.00’s in a Cami or a Big Mac?

Aren’t these beauties just the cutest watches ever? I saw the Butterfly facing watch in a local boutique shop and fell instantly in love. I jotted down the brand name on my i-Phone and thought i’d check out the rest of the collection when I got home. Everyone remember the Michael Kors fad? Well, I think Olivia Burton’s time is coming! I love every single watch on the website, which features Woodland, Animal & Flower Motifs. Check out the website here.

If you are a fan of my blog, and have read my Top 3 Destinations post, you will already know that I love Paris. So when I heard Travel Supermarket are looking for bloggers to create a look for one of five different destinations, and one was a parisian theme, I had to take part. The prize is a trip to the location you have created a look for & £200 spending money (to spend on the outfit – eek).

I choose to work with a monochrome trend, and whats more parisian than stripes? I picked a basic striped dress from Topshop and also a pinafore. I have mixed feelings on pinafores, I probably wouldn’t wear one in the UK, but Paris definitely. It’s a cute preppy item and it dresses the outfit down, for a day of sightseeing. For a night time look, I’d dump the pinny and pop on some chunky heels. As you can see, for the daytime look, I’ve picked a pair of white boots which compliment the dress. I think these boots will also look great with black skinnies!

I choose to inject a pop of colour by choosing a red half pint bag. The closest nail varnish match was Chanel’s ‘617 – Holiday’ – how apt of me! When I see moustaches, I think of a little french waiter. Like the ‘Go Compare’ man, however I’ll hush on that, seeing as thats an indirect competitor of Travel Supermarket.  So yes, moustaches = Paris.

I would love to see some other submissions, so comment me below with your Travel Supermarket entry. If you would like to take part visit: http://www.travelsupermarket.com/c/holidays/worldwide-wardrobe/
