Rainy Days, Mondays, and Sneaky Trips to H&M

Yesterday was a miserable day in London but there is something romantic about a rainy evening don't you think? I wish I had taken a photo on the streets last night to illustrate my point as there was something oddly beautiful in the raindrops lit by lamplight. 

Anyway, I digress. The main point of this post is to show you the cheeky things I bought in H&M on the way home. I blame the demise of HMV for my purchases and here's why: I went in to the Oxford Street branch of HMV looking for some earphones and left thoroughly depressed. Now I know that they are shutting down and all that jazz but it was such a different shop to the one I had been in before Christmas that I kind of wanted to cry. The aisles were pretty much empty, the once vibrant vinyl section was sparse, and the book section that had always been my favourite (brand new books for £1, hello???) was virtually non existent. It was sad. So I popped next door to H&M to make myself feel better. 

I have wanted these jeans for ages so imagine my delight when I spotted them in the sale for £4. £4! That's better than Primark prices. You have to love a bit of leopard print and these muted pink lovelies are perfect for spring/summer. Well, not the spring we are currently having but the idea of spring that I have in my head which includes daffodils and cherry blossom. These are quite a tight fit so I would recommend trying on in your size to double check you don't need one up. 

Along with the jeans I picked up this fab mint green nail polish for £2.99. The shade is 'Mint Madness' and is one of my new faves. I always love a mint green and this one is a little brighter than the others that I own which I love. 

I will be teeming my new purchases with classic black jumpers and pumps while the weather is still cold but come summer the white tees and open-toe heels will be taking over. 

The little purse is one that I purchased in H&M a while ago for £2.99. I love the contrast between the nude pleather and the neon lining. I added the studs myself. Not sure what exactly I can fit in here - cards and coins maybe - but it sure is cute!

Have you guys made any comfort purchases recently? 


  1. Love those jeans and I think mint green is my all time favourite spring / summer shade for nails! Can't get enough of H&M recently I've had some amazing bargains from their sales!
