Some New High Street Hits - Tried and Tested

10.24.2017




Style Theory: I am back again with my edit of my favourite items to buy on the high street all tried on and tested by me - #shoppingwithFran time! These items caught my eye and I know will slot perfectly into my Autumn/Winter wardrobe...

I have also filmed what they looked like when I tried them on ..so if you fancy seeing them 'in real life' I have popped the link at the bottom of the blog post.

Starting with H&M
H&M definitely excel at blouses, they are cut well and although they are not normally cotton they seem to feel amazing on and sit well tucked into trousers or jeans (they dont feel too sweaty!). I have bought quite a few blouses and shirts from H&M over the years and whenever I am in any doubt of what to wear for a night out I reach for my H&M blouses time and time again, I pair with my anvient boyfriend jeans, some heels and a tux jacket for still, one of my favourite, comfortable but cool outfits..
H&M £17.99



H&M £17.99
This blouse has a distinct Gucci vibe going on, I love it, it looks great with jeans and is a real showstopper of a top without trying too hard. It would look great with my pink velvet heels and boyfriend jeans. I am wearing a size 10 and it was true to size. Incidentally, I am pretty sure this was £12.99 in store, slightly annoying that the price differs!
H&M £17.99
H&M £17.99
This blouse looks so much more expensive than £17.99, it feels amazing on and I love the polka dots and the sleeves with covered buttons. It would look great for work with tailored black ankle length trousers and heels, equally it looks pretty good with blue or black jeans and trainers. Beautiful paired with a dark red velvet jacket or dark red velvet heels and a matching bag

This blouse is the same style as the floral one above, it looks great on, would look great with a bright red lip, jeans and red boots, add a fine gold necklace and you have a beautiful winter look.

H&M £34.99
H&M £34.99

This is a beautiful skirt on, it looks great, I love it with my M&S cashmere sweater (seriously I live in this sweater!) and with trainers, it has an elastic waist which sealed the deal for me! Just pop a biker jacket over the top for a cool, day time look. *It is quite static but a reader gave me the most genius tip, pop a safety pin the lining of the skirt and it will take away the static!

H&M £24.99
H&M £24.99

Or for a fancier look, pair with this matching mesh top, it creates the most gorgeous dress. It looks quite Erdem (but loads cheaper) perfect for a wedding or Christmas event. I am wearing size 10 in both top and skirt, and I popped a black vest top underneath this that I bought from H&M. Love love it!

H&M £12.99
This is completely random but I found this is the boys section of H&M age 14+. I wear hoodies all the time to do the schoolrun and loved the colour of this one. I cannot find this exact one online but this one here is fab (I bought it for Jack so we are now matching much to his dismay!)

The Dress of the Season..
Ted Baker £229

I am completely and utterly obsessed with this dress, I have had so many messages from readers asking what to wear to a winter wedding/Christmas event..I would wear this, it is pricey but so so beautiful. The colour is the deepest midnight blue, it is quite heavy velvet but this just means it hangs perfectly. I love the bow detail at the neck, it fits and flatters like a dream skimming over all lumps and bumps. I am wearing a size 2...really really want an event to go to so I can wear this!

So there is a round up of what caught my eye this week. I will be doing this type of blogpost every week, thank so much to you all for your feedback on Instastories about what you wanted to see, I was overwhelmed with the lovely response, so thank you! Have a wonderful week...next I am looking at flat ankle boots that look great with dresses and jeans and are also pretty useful on the schoolrun on rainy mornings.

Here is the link for my Instagram where you can watch my Instastories..enjoy and thanks for reading, Fran xxxx

  2. I love the mustard sweatshirt! Saw it on your Instagram the other day and immediately went shopping. What size do you wear (since it's from the boys section)?
