H&M Haul


After trailing around Primark, New Look  and Topshop I was beginning to get disheartened as after a University Rejection I really needed a purchase pick me up. Enter H&M. After trying on multiple items, and scouring the shelves for the right sizes I walked away with these little beauts. Four staple pieces that I'll wear time and time again.

1. Black Chiffon Blouse- £14.99 This chiffon blouse is lightweight and super comfy with a loose fit. It has somewhat sultry, sheer geometric panels across the front and back. I purchased this blouse in an 8 just to get an even looser fit, but you don't really need to go a size bigger to get the loose fit. Button it up with jeans for a casual look or pair with a leather skirt or disco pants for an edgier look. I recenlty wore this on a meal out with disco pants, and  left untucked the loose fit was perfect for disguising my growing food baby. I also found it in white on the website, so perfect for Spirng too! One quaulm would be that it I seem to be forever cutting off loose threads, but at £14.99 still a bargain!
2. Cropped Square Patterened Jumper- £14.99 This jumper is super soft and has a baggy cropeed shape which makes it perfect for pairing with high-waisted skirts and jeans. The white square pattern makes for an interesting detail, perfect for more casual days. I got this in a medium (as it was the only size left) but I like the slightly oversized feel, however, at two sizes too big it is no longer that cropped on me.
3. Black Lace Shift Dress- £14.99 I love slip dresses. I bought one last year from a vintage store, then when I got home realised it was completely see through, I would need a slip in order to wear my slip. So when I saw this slinky black number I knew I had to redeem my slip disaster. With lace detailing along the top and bottom it is really girly and sexy at the same time. I bought a 6 and it fits really well on my petite frame, not too tight or long, which is always a plus at 5 ft 1. I think that slip dresses are great for petite or slim girls as they really flatter your shape. I pair mine with tights and my vintage bomber jacket, or on more casual days throw a jumper over and let the lace detailing along the hem do the talking. I also think this dress would be great paired with bare legs and a little denim jacket in the summer.
4. Zip Detail Skirt- £14.99 Last but not least was this little beauty. Origionally I wanted this is white, but I couldn't find any in my size, so I opted for an 8 in the black, however it is still a tad big around the waist. A plain black asymmetric skirt can add that little bit of detail to outfits, and is a good alternative to a plain black jersey or skater skirt. The zip detailing adds that tough girl edge which I am forever striving for with my cutesy, 12 year old girl exterior. Pair with converse and a slogan tee for a laid back look, or platform boots and a sheer blouse for a bit of night time glamour.

Yes, all the items I bought were black (great forward planner for Spring Hope) but I just feel that black is such a staple colour for day and night, and I will be able to mix and match these  pieces for any occasion. Unfortunately only the blouse appears on the website, however the items may still be availiable in store.
