Fashion | H&M Lace Ups.

My relationship with H&M has always been very hit & miss. There's been times where I've searched their rails desperately trying to find something that takes my fancy, but to no avail... And then others where I need a lottery win tot all the pieces I like. It just so happens that now myself and H&M are going through a really great patch. I'm finding all sorts of pieces that I love... And even better, they're all complete bargains!

Todays' outfit is one fit for meeting friends for coffee & cake... Because you can't just go for coffee can you? Or I can't anyway. Costa do the best Carrot Cake I think I've ever tasted - I'd definitely recommend if you've never had it before. Or even if you have, have more!

It's not very often I get spendy however a couple of weeks ago I had an old University friend stay & we spent the day doing what gals do best...Shop! This long sleeved striped shirt was welcoming me into H&M, and before I new about it, I was walking out with it in my possession & £7.99 lighter. Yes that's right, this shirt only cost me a measly £8 - It's crazy. It's such a bargain & it's such a flattering top, I absolutely love it. The deep V neckline is made less obvious with the striped lace up tie, you can see a little bit of boobage underneath, but it's surprisingly subtle & you can have it as open or as closed as you like.
Because of the narrow set stripes I wanted to keep the rest of my outfit quite understated so I've popped on a pair of simplistic black skinnies & my trusty New Look sleeveless jacket. I bought this jacket some time last year & it's literally never off my back... It just goes with everything! You'll probably have seen it many a times on my blog.
Another H&M bargain is my black lace up flats. I managed to grab these in the sale for £5 & they are the perfect summer shoe. I took them on holiday & have been wearing them at home so much too. They're just perfect!

What are your thoughts on H&M? Do you find it very hit or miss?

  1. I'm the same.. To be honest, I'm like it with a few shops.. I either want the whole shop or nothing.lol
    H&M though at the moment, for summer, has been on point! Especially on the cold shoulder obsession.
    Love the lace ups.. That's another trend I am totally dedicated too.lol


    1. Yeah, definitely agree with you on that one! I love the cold shoulder trend :-) X
