Mini Primark Haul - Reading and V Festival Preparation!!

I know I've been harping on about going to Reading Festival FOR AGES but me and the girls decided to go and get a few essentials (a tent and clothes!) over the weekend. We headed to good ole Primark for some cheap-as-chips goodies and this is what I brought:

First off was this distressed look, stars and stripes racer back vest (£3). I love the worn look of this vest and it'll be perfect for the (hopefully) sunny August bank holiday. And at £3 if it gets ruined there it's no great loss!

Secondly I brought this mens checked shirt (£3/4) to pull on in the evenings or when we're sat around the tent. It won't be hugely warm but it's pretty much a festival must-have! I also plan to steal a few of my boyfriends shirts and hoodys for sleeping in!

I also brought a tiny cross body bag so I can store my camera and a few bits in when we're down at the stage. The stone colour is really pretty and will be ideal for nights out post-festival (if it doesn't get ruined). 

And now for some none-festival related buys:

This mock McQueen was only £3 and I already have the black-with-white-skulls version so couldn't resist. Primark had these in loads of colours so I might go back for another. Great lightweight spring scarf and could double as a hair band to hide greasy festival hair?

Finally I brought these GORGEOUS colour block wedges (£16). They're so bright and vibrant I just couldn't help myself. Can't wait to wear them with a dark outfit or skinny jeans and a vest at the pub. Bring on the beer gardens!

What have you been buying this week?
