H&M Wardrobe Basics

H and M Basics

I've shared my love of H&M on my blog a lot and while I find their sizing a bit hit and miss, they have the best range of basics on the high street. I love pairing a simple t-shirt with jeans for a casual look so I thought i'd share a few of the new pieces i've bought to give my wardrobe an update. 

I picked up a black and white stripy t-shirt (£7.99) as I have nothing in my wardrobe that's striped and i've been loving the trend recently. It's cropped with a high neck and long sleeves so i'll probably wear it with a pair of high waisted jeans for a casual look or add some jewellery and heels if i'm going out for some drinks.

The grey t-shirt (£14.99) looks quite basic but I chose it because it's made with silk so it's really good quality. It was slightly more expensive than i'd normally pay but I love the soft material and its slightly longer length, which means I can wear it with leggings without them being too revealing!

I bought a white t-shirt in the same style as the grey one but its see-through so i'll be returning it. I've bought so many white t-shirts and returned them for this reason, so if anyone can recommend somewhere that I can get one that isn't really thin in a nice style please let me know!

H&M face mask

H&M always have a good selection of jewellery so I bought some silver rings (£3.99) as I find that their ring sizes usually fit me better than other high street shops. They also came in rose gold but I already have lots of jewellery in that colour so I chose silver for a change! I also bought a set of black and gold bracelets (£7.99) which are a really nice style for summer. They were quite expensive for what they are but I love the colours as they'll go with everything. A few of them are adjustable which is perfect as I have quite small wrists so hopefully they won't fall off either!

And finally I bought a Coconut Water Face Mask (£1.99) which I thought i'd try as I loved the packaging and i've been quite impressed with high street beauty offerings recently. This mask is designed for dry skin so i'm hoping it will be a nice treat for my skin as Coconut Water is good for keeping you hydrated. I think there are a few scents for different skin types so if you've tried any of them please let me know!


  1. I need to go back to H&M now XD, that stripy t-shirt you picked looks great! Their new beauty collection is stunning, I love the eyeshadow and nail polishes! Haven't tried any masks from it though, would like to hear what you think about it :)

  2. I love the monotone theme you've went for and those bracelets looks really nice!

    I'm guilty of having too many striped clothes in my wardrobe, I'd recently bought a funky jumper from a Warehouse, the body is maroon with navy stripes and the arms are navy with white stripes, it's something a bit different. They then brought out a white and navy version but luckily my mam saved me from buying this one as well as she bought it for herself.

    You always seem to find such nice things at H&M, I'll have to venture into the Newcastle branch soon!

  4. I'm always super jealous about other people's H&M finds. My local store has hardly anything in :'( Loved everything you picked up, especially the stripy shirt. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the mask! x

  12. I desperately need to get more basic clothes as well- mine are getting old! (you can only hide the holes on the sleeves for so long LOL) I really like that striped shirt :)
    Hope the face mask works well, it sounds wonderful!
