New from H&M: animal print harem/jodphur/peg trousers

I bought these in H&M yesterday. They cost 20 pounds and are 100% viscose. Basically I just bought them to have something comfy to lounge around in at home, but I might wear them out with a pair of wedges and maybe a black cropped jacket.

They come in black as well, but I of course had to get the animal printesque version. I’m not normally a fan of patterns this sharp and bright, but needed something to lighten up these horribly dark and rainy days.

New from H&M: nude, black and lace

When I was on my highstreet hunt for winter boots I also quickly checked out the stock in my favourite H&M at Regent Street. I try to avoid it as much as I can as there’s a bit too much buy-and-throw-away-in-a-few-months tackiness about their clothes.

But H&M is amazing if you’re after cheap wardrobe basics  with a modern and edgy twist – especially if you stick to natural materials like cotton and viscose.

I ended up with this basic cotton sweater/top, I love the slouchy shape and the nude colour. Comes in MANY other colours. £ 7.99

Up second is this long black skirt in 100% soft viscose. It’s soooo comfy, it’s like the tracksuit of skirts. Perfect for lazy weekends at home but also looks pretty classy with a pair of wedge boots. I haven’t washed it yet, so don’t know how well it holds up (cheapo viscose is risky business). £ 12.99.

And here they are, hand in hand:

H&M do some pretty great tights and leggings as well. Bought this pair of lace leggings. They are soft and stretchy and have a nice wide waistband. £ 9.99.

My black winter wedges: Carvela Slip boots

After a month of researching and trying on and pondering I finally decided upon  what was going to be MY pair of black winter wedges for everyday use. These Carvela Slip wedges cost 130 pound, but I bought them in TopShop’s shoe department and got 10% off as I somehow still have a valid student card.

I actually headed for Oxford Street having finally decided to buy the practical Clark’s Yarra Desert boots but turns out they’re completely sold out. So I settled for these instead, they’re a bit less practical but soooo comfortable and no too high. Come in a grey suede version as well.

More H&M bling

Og nu vi snakker om fine H&M smykker, så se lige den her i metal og “lædersnore”, som min veninde lige har købt i H&M for omkring 15 pund. Vi var alle overbeviste om, at det var noget smadderdyrt designerlir, hun havde investeret i. Sådan en vil jeg da også gerne ha’.

English: Speaking of H&M jewellery, look what my friend just bought for around 15 pounds. The necklace is made of metal bits and “leather” cords. I was convinced it was a piece of expensive designer bling. Well done H&M.

New from H&M – triple black

Jamen, min underbevidsthed mener åbenbart stadig, at jeg mangler sorte ting i skabet. I hvert fald styrer den imod dem som et varmesøgende missil, og det endda i takt med at sommertemperaturen stiger støt udenfor. Så nu kan jeg have det endnu varmere iført disse tre ravnsorte basisting:

Apparently my sub-conscious mind is totally convinced that my closet needs even more black clothes. It keeps steering me towards them in the shops – despite the sunny and humid hotness outside. So now I’m the proud owner of three more black items from H&M:

First up er der denne lange, sorte bomuldsnederdel i bomuld/polyamid/stretch med lille slids bagpå. Sådan en enkel fætter havde jeg ledt længe efter. Vil bruge den om sommeren med en tanktop og om efteråret med asymmetriske overdele. Pris 20 pund.

I love the basic look of this long cotton/polyamid/elasthane skirt with at small slit on the back. I will pair it with a white tank top in the summer and asymmetrical layers in the autumn. Price 20 pounds.

Er også bukket under for trenden med trøjer, der stumper. De er allerbedst tilsat et par højtaljede bukser. Den her er i viscose og kostede 7 pund.

I decided to try out the “cropped t-shirt” trend, and I rather like this one when worn with high-waisted trousers. Price 7 pounds.

Elsker snittet i denne top, som desværre er 100% polly. Men den har små fine skulderpuder og kostede kun 15 pund. Fås i flere fine farver, bl.a. en lys karrygrøn.

I love the cut of this top, although the quality isn’t brilliant as it’s 100% polyester. But it has nice shoulder pads and is perfect over at top on chilly summer evenings. Cheap as well: 15 pounds. It also comes in other colours.

Wishlist: One shoulder maxi dress from Topshop

Blev også fristet af denne fine maxikjole med tidens så populære assymmetriske bare skulder i går, da jeg smuttede en tur ind i myretue-butikken Topshop for at kigge på (fornuftige) sandaler. Jamen, jeg synes faktisk, at den passer perfekt til de der elastik-wedges fra Dune.

Nåede desværre heller ikke at prøve den og det er et must, inden jeg køber, da det ofte er hit-or-miss med pasformen i Topshop for mig. Den er i viscose og koster 28 pund. Fås også i den rødbrune farve “Brick”. Køb den her.

English: I was really tempted by this stylish one shoulder maxi dress when I spotted it in a very busy Topshop yesterday. It would be perfect with the elastic band wedges from Dune and a bit of bling. Comes in the red/brown colour “Brick” as well and costs 28 pounds. Buy it here.

Wishlist: Dune elastic strap sandal

Jeg har stadig ikke fået købt et par flade, praktiske sandaler. Til gengæld har jeg set omkring 10 forskellige par fantastiske wedges, og mit hjerte banker særligt for dette par, som jeg så i vinduet hos Dune i går. Så fine og enkle og prisen på 65 pund er også fornuftig. Hmmm, nåede ikke at prøve dem, men det bliver jeg nok nødt til at tage forbi og gøre.

Og wedges er da også praktiske hverdagssko, er de ikke? Godt, det mente jeg også! 🙂 Fås også m. mørkeblå og khaki elastik.

English: I still haven’t found the perfect pair of flat, practical summer sandals. They’re all so freaking boring. What I have found while quickly browsing the highstreet stores are around 10 different pair of lovely wedges: from boots to sandals. I spotted these in the window at Dune yesterday and I just love them. Simple and classy and the price is also pretty good: 65 pounds. They come in dark blue and khaki too.

You could call wedges practical and use them everyday, couldn’t you? Exactly, that’s what I thought! 🙂 I haven’t tried them on yet, so I don’t know how comfortable they are. Guess I’m heading for Dune again….
