H&M mini spree

I seem to have given myself a mysterious challenge to see how quickly I can empty my bank account this month… foolish, but one the plus side I have picked up some lovely bits from bargain-central, H&M, so I thought I would share them with you!


First up are three of the same jumper, in different colours. It’s a lightweight knitwear with a sort of grungy feel to it – very much like a jumper I purchased for a lot more money from Topshop. I picked up three of these lovely basics as they were a bargainous £7.99 each.  Yep, just £7.99.

I chose the colours beige, black/grey and purple. There’s also a turquoise shade that I’m very tempted to go back and get too! Each of the jumpers have a colour contrast detail pocket and rolled-over wrists to add a bit of interest.


Next up I picked up one of the lace dresses that I already love the style of enough to own in three other colours (black, cornflower blue and beige) but I was told that they had it in teal/turquoise, which is my favourite colour…so I knew I had to track it down!

These lace dresses are lovely, so simple – short, lace/crochet style with slightly flared, elbow length sleeves. Flattering style and what I call my ‘if in doubt’ dress – if I don’t know what to wear, I pull one of these babies out and know I’ll feel good in it!


Also, as a last moment impulse I picked up this pair of simple tan ballet shoes – I adore tan accessories and have a pair of tan pumps that are on their last legs and figured that for about £7 (I think they were either £6.99 or £7.99) I can’t really go wrong!? 

I do love some good basics in my wardrobe – maybe not as exciting as more fashion items, but I do love a good basic! Where do you like to buy your fave basics?

Bought by me!

    I just picked up that dress yesterday in cream – it’s so pretty!

    I also had the tan shoes – until I stepped on a lit cigarette butt which caused a hole to go through the entire sole. So upsetting – I adored them so will definitely have to get another pair!
