27 Payday Buys To Kick Off Easter Weekend

Grazia's Easter payday shopping edit

Updated on

For some reason, the March payday feels like one of the best. There’s none of the gloominess of paying off excessive Christmas spending (we’re looking at you January), but also wedding season hasn’t properly kicked off either, so you’re not haemorrhaging each month's paychecks on Yurts (for you) and Kenwoods (for them) just yet. This chunk of salary, this one’s all for you.

So what might you need – or want – this week? Well there’s Easter weekend to think about first – shopping trips, lunches, family time, catch-ups and perhaps even a cheeky little city break? Such a smorgasbord of non-workwear-plans require some fresh new outfits, and finally, the weather might be warm enough to archive our coats and really get into SS’18 properly. We can almost feel the breeze on our bare ankles already.

If you’re off to warmer weather poolside or beach holiday, some great swimwear, sandals and cover-ups are going to be pretty essential too. From the perfect sun dress from sister duo We Are Leone, to Miss Selfridge’s satin mules which look much more spenny than their high street price tag, your Easter break is about to get a whole lot more stylish...
