Collar

Shirt and Jumper – H&M Trend
Jacket – Topshop

I’m such a blogger with my embellished collar buttoned up!

Although I have loved the collar trend for a while, I never embraced it myself as collars are just not something I feel comfortable in! Does anyone else think that a collar done up gives them a ‘box body’ or do you feel suffocated and stiff all day? Maybe it is just me because I keep lusting after the style and everyone else seems to pull it off really well.

I bought this blouse from the H&M trend section a while ago and up until last week it was still hanging in my wardrobe with the tag on. When I tried it on again I realised that it is actually quite comfortable and the pretty embellishments were too nice to ignore. It’s a gorgeous sheer material with short sleeves too so will be perfect for the warmer weather. Although I bought it a while ago I saw it last week in store, if anyone is interested.

The jumper is also from the H&M trend collection, which I love! I just found out that its called H&M trend, I used to just describe it as the more expensive bit upstairs for classier ladies!!

Paired it with my Topshop jacket for extra layering benefits!

  1. ahhh where did you buy H&M trend stuff?? In the Ox Circus one? I am loving this blouse :) But yes on some of my blouses doing the button up to the top suffocates me (I can't wear roll necks for that reason either) xx

  2. They have the best H&M trend in Covent Garden, the whole of the top floor is dedicated to it! Or Selfridges has a consession which is only for the trend items! The one on Oxford Street going towards Tottenham Court Road (next to Aldo I think) has an Ok section on the ground floor at the back left hand corner!

    Oh god! I sound like a total H&M freak!! Hope that helps though! x

  5. I love the blouse, I'm also obsessed with the collar trend. I feel like if it's really hot and my collar is done up all the way it annoys me and I usually unbutton it but when it's cold or I have necklace on it doesn't seem to bother me too much.

    You always find the nicest things, I wish we had H&M in Aus xx

    1. Yeah it is a little shorter than I would have liked but it looks good with high waisted skirts or a jumper over it, just not with jeans really!
      I'm about 5'3 and it sits just at my waist. Hope that helps!? x

  13. Ahhh been looking for a shirt with a jazzy collar like this! Will have to check out h&m next week if I have time. Your jumper/jacket combo works a treat with it too. Also your previous out is beautiful, really like that skirt! Glad the move went well and you've found a great new space! :) xxx

  18. Well you know me! I love collars but depending on the shirt style I guess, I know what you mean with the box shape. ha,ha, so funny I call it the same every H&M has the classier ladies more expensive section (I call it the same!) but my favourite for this section is the one in High street Kengsington I think that is my favourite H&M in the whole world haha no actualli the one in Covent garden and the one in Regents street is amazing! and huge! I hate the one in Oxford circus though
