H&M mid-summer sale splurge!

With my dream escape to Morocco edging ever closer, it's safe to say that the one thing occupying my mind more than anything (no, not the all inclusive food and drink) - is my holiday wardrobe.  

I'm sure all you girls will agree, that a huge amount of your time leading up to a summer holiday is spent fantasising about how a week in the sun will somehow transform you into a perfectly bronzed, superbly dressed, lithe exotic goddess.  The sad, but unfortunate reality of it is, most of us will end up sunburnt, sunstroked (not a real word admittedly), dehydrated, itchy 'down there' after bikini wax stubble starts to poke through, looking 3 months pregnant after taking advantage of all-inclusive alcohol and stuck to the toilet after some suspect tapas.  But a girl can dream, can't she?

A few days ago the H&M mid-summer sale started - and I hate to use 'North-Eastern' sayings, as they're rather cliché and embarrassing...but I was on it like a car bonnet.  Cringe.  For the uninformed, yes I do talk like those off Geordie Shore.  Here's the lovely little bargains I picked up, at an even lovelier price...

Conscious Collection 100% recycled polyester shorts £9.99 (were £19.99)
Chambray dress £7.99 (was £19.99)
Frill and drawstring dress £6.49 (was £12.99)

Gold jersey pleat dress £6.49 (was £12.99)

All in all, I am extremely pleased with my summery bargains!  I am patiently awaiting their arrival - just hope they all fit as H&M sizes tend to be either too generous or very small fitting.  

Have you bought anything from the H&M mid-summer sale?
When do you go on your summer holiday?

Love + peace

  9. Thanks for the comments girlies! Josie you must be crazy, Oxford Street is stressful at the best of times but attempting the sales on a Saturday is just madness!!! Sometimes I'm glad I live in a little city because the hustle and bustle of London is just too much for me x

  10. I love sales! The pink dress is so pretty! :)

  12. I start planning my holiday wardrobe months in advance! These are great picks. I'm going away in August for 3 weeks for my honeymoon... With a backpack! I'm backpacking for 3 weeks and then staying in a honeymoon resort. I'm pretty sure that despite my best efforts I will look nothing like a exotic goddess by the time I arrive at the luxury resort. X
