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!


Shop the shorts here.



  • 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!

Shop the slides here.

  • 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.

Shop the dress here.



  • 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!

Shop the swimsuit here.



  • 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!

Shop the kaftan here.



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.

Shop the blouse here.


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.

Shop the skirt here.



  • 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!

Shop the earrings here.



CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Wide Dress

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - S-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

This dress is just so pretty! I love the light pink tones and dainty flower print....oh and you can get a matching hair scarf too! The dress comes in two other prints as well.

Shop the dress here.



  • Slim Mom High Ankle Jeans

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - 4-22 regular and 6-16 in petite

  • Why it made my top 20:

Firstly the colour. Lilac is such a gorgeous colour and will flatter most skin tones. Being Mom fit jeans they have a high waist which will nip you in at the right places and it has a tapered leg so good if you are conscious of your calves/thighs.

Shop the jeans here.




CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Lyocell dress

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - S-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

This dress has already sold out a number of times and it is not hard to see why with the bold polka dot prints, flounced hem and elasticated high waist. This is in and out of stock frequently so make use of my 'Save my Style' (currently free)service for this one!

Shop the dress here.


  • Metal-buckle waist belt

  • Price - £9.99

  • Sizes - XXS-XXL

  • Why it made my top 20:

There is no denying how much a belt can change an outfit! This belt is fab as it will go with pretty much anything and the elasticated waist means you don't have the overhang of a buckle making the whole look sleeker.

Shop the belt here.



  • Platform sandals

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - 2.5-8

  • Why it made my top 20:

If you want to wear heels during the summer, platforms are a great alternative to wedges as they can be a little sturdier to walk in. Although the platform looks like it is made of wood it is actually rubber so they are nice and light, and waterproof!

Shop the platforms here.

CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Puff-sleeved cotton dress

  • Price - £14.99

  • Sizes - XS-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

A good black dress is always great to have in your wardrobe over summer. Although black may not seem like the natural summer to go, it can actually look incredibly chic, esp with white accessories. I love the square neck on this dress too.

Shop the dress here.



CONSCIOUS COLLECTION

  • Tie-hem satin blouse

  • Price - £12.99

  • Sizes - XS-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

This top is so pretty. I love the tie at the front which you can make into a bow or leave hanging. Perfect over jeans or shorts!

Shop the top here.




  • Belt and accessories

  • Price - £17.99

  • Sizes - XXS-XXL

  • Why it made my top 20:

It's fair to say you will either love or hate this belt! I personally love it and how handy to be totally hands and bag free esp while we are trying to limit touching things!

Shop the belt here.



  • Jersey T-shirt

  • Price - £9.99

  • Sizes - XS-XL

  • Why it made my top 20:

This t-shirt has been all over Instagram and for good reason! It is such a simple t-shirt yet the colours make it really pop. It is constantly in and out of stock so def one to utilise your free 'Save my Style' service on if you want to get your hands on one!

  • Flip-Flops

  • Price - £12.99

  • Sizes - 2.5-8

  • Why it made my top 20:

Nude flip-flops...everyone should own a pair! You will always have a pair of flip flops to go with whatever you are wearing! These patent ones are gorgeous and they also come in black, white and mint green!

  • Pleated skirt

  • Price - £19.99

  • Sizes - XS-XL
