Well helloooo there, unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that today was the official launch of ‘Ivy Park’. Which is Beyonce’s fitness and lifestyle collection for Topshop, being the curious cat I am, I power walked to Topshop during my lunch break and had a quick look.
Firstly, whilst I love the collection overall, many of the pieces won’t be for me. For the simple reason of I’m not actually a huge fan of slogan clothing, which is a big part of ‘Ivy Park’.
Saying all that I was pleased to see that the quality was good with lovely thick material and seriously stylish designs. If I was to buy anything? It would be the following pieces:
I then proceeded to dash to Primark at lightening speed (I only get 30 minutes lunch) and allowed myself a mini budget sportswear haul. I posted my whole haul on Snap chat and within moments I was receiving more snaps than ever as so many of you loved the pieces. I think more than anything, the price plays a big part also, whilst I don’t mind paying more for quality staples and trainer’s, I think everyday sportswear can be cheap and cheerful.
These leggings were only £9.00 and the top was £6.00 – I also picked up a black vest to layer over the top
Whilst admittedly these leggings are by Freddy, Primark had a great selection of plain and colourful leggings and I adore these tops at only £4.00 each. I also grabbed a loose t-shirt in peach to throw over a sports bra or vest on those ‘In between’ weather days and I firmly recommend the socks at only £2.50 for 3 pairs.
As you will all probably know, unfortunately Primark does not have a ‘Buy Online‘ option. So, I can only recommend you drop in whilst passing and see what your local store has to offer.
I know I’ve never shared a shopping haul before, but I’ve really enjoyed talking fit fashion today and will try and do this more often – Have you brought any new sportswear lately? Any new lines I should check out?
