A trip to Bluewater…Gap, H&M and M&S

It’s a dangerous thing to live so close to, in my opinion, the best shopping centre in England. Especially when you haven’t been on a proper shopping trip in months! Little miss was unbelievably well behaved which gave me plenty of time to try a few things on for a change. Normally it’s just grab and go, and hope for the best when I get home!

First up, some purchases from H&M, all from the Divided section. I do love H&M, although I wish they would change their website as I always find the usability pretty awful, and I can never find what I’m looking for on it (as seen below!)

I’ve been looking for a pair of grey jeans for ages, as I’m unable to justify another blue pair at the moment. I did try a few on in Next but they were disappointing and very baggy at the knees which I hate. These are the perfect fit and i love the zip detailing. They also look great with the plum sweater I picked up for just £7.99:

Sweater//H&M//£7.99 (unable to find a link online!)

Jeans//H&M//£29.99

Trainers//MA (bought two summers ago)

Carrying on the colour theme….! I think this is such a great colour for this season, and the vest is perfect to wear with leggings as it hangs down lower at the back:

Vest top//H&M//£14.99

Leggings//H&M (I can’t find these on the website either!)

Boots//Next (last season)

A close-up of the leggings! The speckle on these makes them just slightly different from the standard black pair I have.

The 40% off Gap promotion extended to the 9th November in store, which gave me a great excuse to nip into the shop for a quick browse. Aiming to branch out even further away from my blue skinnies, I tried on these lovely pink cord skinny trousers. They were such a perfect fit and even more appealing at £23.97 down from £34.95 I’ve paired them with my last H&M purchase, I can’t get enough of anything star print right now!

Star print top//H&M//£7.99

Cord skinny jeans//Gap//£23.97 (with 40% off, now priced at £24.99 online)

Black lace up boots//Clarks//£60

I saw this shirt on the Gap website and instantly loved the colour and fit. I was all ready to order it with the 40% discount but unfortunately there were none left in my size. A little bit pleased to find that they had one in my size at the Bluewater store:

Check shirt//Gap//£23.97 (down from £34.95) can’t seem to find it online so perhaps they have sold out of this colour – see similar here

Jeans//River Island (old)

Black lace up boots//Clarks//£60

Lastly, a jumper purchase from the Indigo Collection (actually an early Christmas present from my mum) at M&S. Definitely can’t go wrong with red in the run up to Christmas. It does need a vest top underneath though as the holes are slightly too big to get away with.

Jumper//M&S Indigo collection//£39.50
