"Timeless everyday style"

New In At H&M & WIWT

So how's everyone getting on with the sales?!!  Still shopping & not dropping or totally fed up with sales bargains & ready to brace the new collections?!!  Well just in case you're done with the sales I thought I'd share my picks from H&M's new collection that just happened to catch my eye when I was minding my own business & an email pinged its way into my inbox!!!

Starting with this lovely breton striped sweatshirt dress.  Now I'm seriously tempted to order this beauty not only due to the price & the stripes but also because I quite fancy having a dress that's cosy & comfy for cooler summer days.  I think this would look fab with sandals or ankle boots - even skater shoes if you've taken the plunge.  Plus if its raining great for throwing on with a denim jacket.  I can even see this working for autumn worn with a scarf & it will look fab under my mac.  It would also be a great dress for just lounging around the house in.  Having studied the pictures online (as you do) I'm going to order it but size up as I quite like the idea of this style being a looser fit.  So anyone else joining me in clicking the button?!!!




Love the look of this shirt dress too & if accessorised with some gold accessories I think this would look really elegant & chic.





Now I PROMISE I'm not going to order another jacket (well not just yet anyway) but if you're in need of a striped jacket then I love the boxy shape of this one.  Fab for teaming with a simple shift dress for work or a special occasion, lovely for evenings out with faux leather or wax effect jeans & perfect for everyday with some distressed jeans & a simple t-shirt.






Now this next coat is either gong to seriously work or make you look like Kermit & as I haven't seen it in the flesh let alone tried it on I wouldn't like to say which!  But if it looks & fits as I'm picturing it in my head this would look really elegant with some cigarette length trousers in either navy or black with a simple top & I love this shade of green.






A pretty summer dress next perfect for hot summer days at home or going down to breakfast or the beach on holiday.






Or if skater shoe are your thing then I love the look of these snake print ones - great colours that have seriously got me tempted but I'm just not sure if they're me.






Lastly I have already clicked the button on this jumper as I just love the neckline so much & can't wait to team it with some distressed denim & my Next metallic slingbacks.






Finally here's what I'm wearing today.




Top - Zara
Bag - Zara
Jeans - Mint Velvet
Pumps - Boden 


Metallics & Pastel Pink


Bag - Zara £39.99

So anything to tempt you or have you already been tempted by the pinging of H&M's email in your inbox?!!!  Tell me I'm not the only one PLEASE!!!!

Happy Friday :-)

  1. The problem with following fashion blogs is that now my credit card is getting a bit if a spanking! The sweatshirt dress will be great in summer but I think it would also go through to autumn with skinny jeans and pumps or ankle boots so cost per wear will be pennies!

    1. Nicola I'm loving your style & if you factor in the stripes it's a classic that can come out season after season ;-)

    1. Thanks Lynne. You can either go in H&M & see nothing or see lots can't you....I guess this is an example of the later ;-0

  3. Hi there Jane am loving your blog. Love the suggestions above. Before I go rushing headlong into the new season fashion and blowing the budget on things I don't need would love a post on autumn winter must haves that I could keep in mind! I may then end up with new purchases that will work hard in my wardrobe!! Love your style Christine Xx

  5. Stop it now!* I haven't been subscribing to your blog for five minutes, it seems, but already my credit card is melting. I love my navy Grey & Osbourne (sp?) bag and ASOS chiffon top. And you've introduced me to the joys of Mint Velvet.
    *Don't stop, really, I've seldom been so elegant yet casual.

  6. I've seen the green coat and it's quite a strange chenille type fabric and very bright in real life. I was drawn to it in the shop because of the colour but it's a little synthetic to the touch and on the eye. You are right in that the shade would work well with navy - one of my favourite combinations.

    The pink top you're wearing is a really pretty shade - looks lovely on you.
