Today I had what I call a “refreshing” day. I have had a pretty horrible week...three assignments due in, one exam, and chaos with friends regarding housing, meaning I currently have no where to live next year! I had given up as of last night, and decided i needed to spend today on some pampering and “me” time.
I refused to get out of bed until 11am, spent an hour with my hair in curlers, did all of my make up, tied my room to perfection, and then decided to head into town for some (budgeted) retail therapy. I spent two hours in H&M, simply trying on as many items as I could and then thought I would share some of them with you all.
So this is my outfit that I arrived in originally into the changing room! Since I’ve been at University I have turned into a very sensible girl in regards to clever footwear, and warm jackets! Jeans are high-waist from Miss Selfridge at £40.00 and honestly the best pair of jeans I have ever owned. They fit in all the right places, and I could never go back to wearing low-cut jeans anymore. The jacket was bought from h&m last week for £30.00, although two of the buttons have since come off which I’m not very happy about! Boots are £35.00 from New Look and extremely comfortable!
First two items....very similar in colours, but I felt they didn’t suit my shape at all. Made me look larger than I actually am, and showed every bump on my jeans, so these were a definite no. I keep trying to move away from the dark colours that fill my wardrobe but every time I do, I don’t feel like they are slimming!
LEFT; I have tried this strappy top (£9.99) on a number of times, because I love the saying on the front; HIGH HEELS, HIGH HOPES. However I do not usually just wear strappy tops alone so threw the jacket over and liked how it worked well…although not bright, it is not black!
RIGHT; I picked up this dress in the wrong size because it was only £5.00 in the sale so thought I would try it anyways. It was nice...until I discovered the zip was also broken which was a shame.
These two dresses I purchased. Although once again in darker colours! The one on the left (£19.99) I felt suited my body shape really well, however I am very self-conscious about my arms so have to decide how I am going to dress this up! The one on the right solved this problem and will look great with a pair of boots…only £12.99!
Same jumper in different colours. This one surprised me actually because I tend to stay away from high-neck items due to the way it looks if you have boobs, however it seemed to fit pretty well. Deciding between the two was difficult because of the brilliant price of only £14.99 but I eventually bought the white one. Looks a little bit christmassy also!
So I came away with four nice pieces...two blue dresses, a white jumper and a white strappy top. Still no colour though! This must be my new mission for 2012!
Love to you all xxx
