Shirt: Zara
Cardigan: Zara
Necklace: H&M

I picked this shirt up from Zara last weekend and I really love it, it’s so versatile and goes with so many things. The cardigan is a wraparound in grey that i also bought in black. I had a similar one from H&M from a couple of years ago that I wore so much that its poor life ended after much love. The necklace is one that I’ve featured on here before, it’s a really cool coin charm necklace from H&M. There seems to be a Zara/H&M theme going on here….

MY SPRING/SUMMER WISHLIST

Summer is here (although the grey clouds and low temperatures here in England suggest otherwise) which means it’s time to revamp our Winter wardrobes – If you live in most other countries you would’ve done this months ago, but this is the land where Spring and Autumn do not exist; the months simply seem to have no definition. Below are my top picks for Spring and Summer – I am absolutely loving the new collection from & Other Stories, I want every single piece!

SPRING SUMMER WISHLIST

WEDNESDAY WISHLIST.

So with no earphones or book to entertain me on my train ride back to uni, I had to succumb (quite willingly) to the internet. Mainly the “shopping” corner of the internet. You know, that place that somehow lures you in every time you log on and whoops! suddenly you have another pair of jeans that you don’t need, three more lipsticks and a whole chunk missing from your bank account. Guilty as charged.

Whilst I did go on a spree somewhere between Stevenage and King’s Cross, I also held back and didn’t buy EVERYTHING I wanted. Here is a few things I could’ve bought to depress my bank account further.

Following on from my post last night showcasing those goooooorgeous necklaces from Pinterest I felt inspired as I got dressed this morning. I have on my H&M coin necklace (underneath) and my Zara necklace (also the one everyone raved about because a certain Kate Middleton wore it, yawn.). Both are available to buy now both online and in stores.

H&M HAUL

I went to H&M on Friday for an impromptu shopping trip and of course I had to buy things! I mainly went to buy some vests to wear as pyjama tops as I had to leave mine in Majorca last week due to an overweight suitcase… More on that in a future blog post. But me being me, I couldn’t just stick to my “I’ll only buy three vests” idea.

These were the three vests I bought intended for pyjama's. Simple stretch jersey vests in pastel colours and at only £3.99 each you don't have to be too precious about washing them, although in my experience with H&M vests, they've always washed really good and lasted years.

I saw this jersey dress on a mannequin in the window and really liked it. It's clearly "influenced" by recent Givenchy collections with the panther visual, and it's a simple item that can be worn both in the summer (in fact, I'm wearing it today paired with a cream lace tiered skirt) and the winter with a leather jacket, tights and biker boots. I really liked the red tee to wear with white jeans and biker boots or to pair with a pair of beaten up shorts for the summer. Both at extremely great prices being from H&M.

You can't really see from this crappy iPhone shot, but the white vest is a loose fitting simple jersey tee with cut off sleeves and enlarged arm holes. I loooove these in the summer with coloured bras or bikini tops. The demin shirt on the right is a soft cotton denim, with the ability to be worn all seasons round, layered up in the winter or paired with skinny jeans or skirts in the summer.
