Summer staples from H&M

I’ve been looking for a while for the perfect black chunky cardigan to wear in the summer when it gets a bit chilly, but I haven’t had any luck so far. Truthfully I’m not really a massive fan of cardigans as I find it can be tricky to make them fit properly and look right when wearing them over the top of vest tops, t-shirts and shirts.

H&M are definitely winning for me at the moment, and I came across this soft, loose knit slouchy jumper for just £12.99:

It’s perfect for just grabbing, especially when you’re leaving the house in a hurry – pretty much a given with two little people – and throwing over the top of whatever you’re wearing. I’m very tempted to buy it in a couple of other colours as well, as the fit is great. I went for the Small which is perfect (I’m about a 10 on the top).

I do love taking inspiration from other bloggers on their latest fashion buys and styling, and this next purchase was based purely on a lovely blue stripy shirt I saw from The Fashion Lift, also from H&M.

Sadly they don’t stock it online anymore (as it was a bargain in the sale!), so I’m unable to post a link to it. I wore it the other night on a (very rare!) date night with the husband, and kept things simple with my favourite skinny jeans from River Island:


I’ve found some similar shirts here:

    Ooh I don’t seem to be able to get enough of H&M at the moment Jane! I too purchased (a slightly different) blue stripe shirt there and I have bought some fab fine knits there in the past as well. They seem to have been my go to shop this season! xx
