Is anyone else having the longest week? I know it’s only Wednesday but time is just passing so slowly for me! Yesterday I woke up at 4 AM not feeling well and then I had a dentist appointment to get new sealants. That alone threw me off my normal routine. Luckily I’m feeling better and ready to tackle the rest of the week, in anticipation of a fun weekend. There are also rumors of nice weather and sunshine! (I have my doubts about that.)
I never got around to sharing a Primark haul after my London trip but this post will serve as a mini haul. (Check out the travel tab for my London travel posts!) The jacket and raw hem jeans are two pieces that I’ve been wearing a lot since buying them. If you’ve never heard of Primark, it’s an affordable store that sells clothing, home stuff, accessories, beauty, etc. It’s headquartered in Ireland but there are a ton of locations in London. I had no idea that there are a few locations on the East coast of the US too! Outfit details: Primark leather jacket (black version here for only $16!) / Banana Republic crochet tank (similar for only $20) / Primark raw hem denim (similar) / Street Level bucket bag c/o Dailylook / Converse Low Top sneakers (I really want this version, they look a little more..sophisticated?) / BP sunglasses (they have amazing glasses for cheap, like this marble pair)
I’m wearing this lip balm that has a beautiful light tint of color. The brand is IPKN, a Korean brand that I was introduced to by Nordstrom’s Kbeauty pop-in!

You guys have probably noticed that I’m the biggest fan of leather moto jackets. My affinity for black clothing means I solely wore my black jacket but recently I’ve been loving blush and nude. When I saw this blush jacket, I had to have it. I actually wanted a size up but couldn’t find it in two stores so I just bought it anyway. It was super affordable and the exchange rate was totally in my favor. Unfortunately not being able to size up means I won’t be able to wear a thicker sweater underneath this during winter but the light blush color does seem more appropriate for spring.
As for the jeans, I have raved about these already in a past favorites post. I wish I bought another pair (or two) because they are that comfortable and fit me perfectly. They have the right amount of stretch yet they don’t lose their shape even after you wear them many times. Very rare in skinny jeans that aren’t jeggings. I’m all for investment pieces but sometimes you need a few pairs of affordable denim. These are the perfect mesh between classic skinnies and trendy raw hem jeans. So sorry I couldn’t find them online for you guys!
Looking at these photos, I’m really looking forward to getting outside more! These were taken on the waterfront a few minutes drive from where I live but it’s only a few minute walk to a different dock on the same lake. (It’s a massive lake, in case you aren’t from the Seattle area.) Our building has kayaks to borrow so when summer rolls around, I can’t wait to take advantage of them! I’ve only ever canoed in Lake Washington before and it was really really laid back (think, mimosas on the water…) so this will be an interesting time. I also want to hike more this summer so let me know if you have any (easier) hikes that you think I should try out!
