20 under £20


With the weekend here, it is the time when in usual times we may be thinking about what we are going to wear for dinner with loved ones, drinks with friends, family celebrations etc; however with us all living in this new reality those things seem like they will never happen again. I don't believe this to be the case and I am sure that the weekend will mean all of these things again.


Buying clothes may seem like an odd thing to be doing right now but if you look at the amount of 'sold out' items on main stream websites it seems that there is still very much a demand! I for one have not stopped buying clothes. The majority of them are going in my 'Post Lockdown' box although at the rate I am eating chocolate there is a very real possibility that none of what I have bought will fit!




One of my favourite places to shop is H&M for a few reasons. Firstly they are very reasonable and not far off price wise to Primark for certain items. They also have really fashion forward designers and their distinctive prints are often instant sell outs. More important then all of that though is the fact a lot of their clothes now are in their 'Conscious' collection.


All pieces made in the conscious collection are made from at least 50% sustainably sourced materials – like organic cotton and recycled polyester — but many Conscious products contain a lot more than that.


So with this is in mind I have picked out my top 20 pieces from the new collection, most of which are 'conscious' pieces. All of them are under £20, allowing you to add a little colour, fun and newness to your wardrobe whilst not breaking the bank at these times.


You may notice that a lot of these pieces are sold out. If there is something you would like to try but that is the case, then let me know and I will use my dedicated stock tracker to alert you as soon as your size is back in stock. This is usually a paid service but I will be offering it for free, after all we all need a little pick me up right now!


 

CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Smocked mesh dress

  • Price - £9.99

  • Sizes - XS-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

I mean firstly, £9.99 for this! What a BARGAIN! Before I noticed the price though I noticed the gorgeous cerise colour. There is so much potential for this dress day and night!

  • Tie-belt shorts

  • Price - £17.99

  • Sizes - 4-22

  • Why it made my top 20:

You can't look at these shorts and not think of summer can you! I also liked the fit of these, nipped in at the waist yet a bit of a flare around the hips and thighs. There is a whole range of pieces in this print if you like it!

  • Slides

  • Price - £9.99

  • Sizes - 2.5-8

  • Why it made my top 20:

  • Slides are a fab alternative to the usual flip flops. They offer the same 'slip them on' feel but tend to be a little more formal. I love the colour of these ones, literally the colour of sunshine but they also come in blue, black and pink!

  • Puff-sleeved dress

  • Price - £17.99

  • Sizes - S-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

This dress is so versatile. It is a great 'throw on dress' and the shape allows you to put a belt round it and change the whole look of it very easily. You can control the 'puff' of the sleeves by wearing the sleeves longer or shorter.

  • Padded-cup swimsuit

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - 6-22

  • Why it made my top 20:

I know, I know! It is hard to think of going on holiday right now but with the gorgeous weather we have had, and will hopefully have again there is no reason why we can't get our tan on in our gardens!

  • Long beach kaftan

  • Price - £17.99

  • Sizes - S/M-L/XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

Incase you didn't know, I am very much into 'all things matching'. This kaftan adds a touch of glamour and a quick cover up when the delivery man knocks at the door!

CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Puff-sleeved cotton blouse

  • Price - £17.99

  • Sizes - S-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

Carrying on the 'matching' theme I chose this top in this gorgeous green based floral print. Again, H&M have done a number of pieces in this print but this square neck top is easy to pair with pretty much anything.

CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Pleated skirt

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - 6-22

  • Why it made my top 20:

Well I did say I liked things matching! So you could wear this with the matching top for a full on look or pair it with a basic t-shirt. It's lovely and flowy for those balmy summer days.

  • Earrings

  • Price - £9.99

  • Sizes - n/a

  • Why it made my top 20:

I just loved the colour of these earrings. They have that summer time feel and as they are made of resin you don't need to worry about getting them wet when you have a dip in the pool....or should I say paddling pool!
