Top - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Loafers - Office

I haven't shopped in H&M a few years now, but back in the day, when I was around 16 & 17, it was one of my go to shops.  I loved it in there, but it started changing and I didn't like a lot of the clothes so I stopped going in.  A few months back I decided to go in and have a little browse just too have a look and kill some time, and actually managed to get an outfit to wear for valentines day the next day.  I was generally not expecting this, and since then I've been going back more and more, and never seem to leave empty handed!  
I've found that it's especially good for those basic bits of clothing that we all need in our wardrobes, and they always seem to have really nice basic bits, not just your bog standard black stretchy vest top, like you would go into Primark for.  Putting outfits together only using basic pieces is great because it's quick and easy, and adding some jewelry makes it look like you've actually put some effort into deciding what you're going to wear!

I thought wearing the skirt as high waisted went well with the baggy grey crop top, and threw on some black and white loafers and a pastel pink necklace to add some colour and complete the look... simple!

  3. Yea, I've been kind of unimpressed with H&M the past year too, but just like you said, I just found the most adorable basics there! I got a grey jersey dress there just last week that i just can't stop wearing- and it was like only $10!

  4. Ah did you that's so good, yep that's another thing I forgot to mention actually, a lot of the clothes are quite cheap as well which is obviously a bonus! I really want like a nice simple white casual dress maybe like a jersey t shirt dress or something for the summer so hopefully they will have something! Xx
