I couldn't decide what to call this post as all the clothes are patterned skirts or trousers that I have purchased and wanted to share but 'patterned bottoms' didn't sound like a suitable title! So here is my mini clothes haul...
I popped into Primark the other day while I was visiting Portsmouth as it is much nicer than the one in my home town. I picked up 2 patterned maxi skirts and I love them. The first one I saw was the one I am wearing above which is a thin, stretchy material with a white, black and royal blue aztec print. This was a great buy for £8!
The second skirt I bought was this one, which is slightly thicker and cost £10. This looks great paired with any coloured plain top and some sandals. I think this might make an appearance in my winter wardrobe too as you could easily wear some tights or leggings underneath and pair with ankle boots instead of sandals.
I also purchased a bag from Primark and although it's not clothes, it is too nice not to share! I absolutely love anything burgundy coloured and this bag caught my eye from a mile off. I also really like the detailing around the edge of the front flap. It was £8. Although you can't tell from the photos, this bag is actually quite deep so great if you want to carry less than a in normal handbag but still spacious enough for extra things like a bottle of water.
The other items I bought have been from Uniqlo. Although Uniqlo has been around in the UK for a number of years, many people I talk to have either never heard of it or have heard of it but have never been in. I find this mad as I love Uniqlo! They are my go-to shop for buying cardigans as the quality is great, they are a good price and they last well without looking faded and old.
However this time, I managed to refrain from buying cardigans and found some trousers to spend my money on instead! The first pair I bought were these flowery baggy loungepants. These look great paired with a plain top which can be worn loose or tucked in. Although these were in their 'loungepants' section, you could definitely wear them out as they aren't pj material. They would also be great for anyone looking to go travelling. They cost £12.90 and you can buy them HERE - they also have a range of patterns and other colours too!
The other bottoms I bought were also in the loungepants section, but this time I do not intend to wear them out! They are spotty lounge bottoms with cuffed ankles. These are so comfy to wear around the house and I have lived in these since I bought them. I originally bought the navy spotty ones and loved them so much I went back and bought them in grey spotty too! They cost £9.90, which is a great price and you can buy them HERE along with other plain colours too!
I hope you've enjoyed seeing what 'patterned bottoms' I've bought recently. I know there are many patterned and printed items out there that I am also very tempted by. Have you bought any patterned/printed items recently?
