H&M Biker Jacket & Trainers

Back a few weeks ago, I got a 25% off voucher for H&M in Grazia magazine and I've been meaning to share what I bought for a while now. First up, I got these black trainers (not online anymore but they may still be in your local store):

Priced at £29.99, I'd admired them as far back as March but felt they were a bit pricy (they're 39.99 euro!!) With 25% off though, they seemed about right and having admired Chrissabella in hers for a few weeks, I decided to get them.
I really like the detail on them - the lattice on the upper, the patent on the heel and the pony skin  around the ankle. And I have worn them loads. The fact that they are black makes them so wearable and a bit dressier than coloured trainers.

The second item I got was this quilted detail faux leather jacket. It was an unplanned purchase. I had a vague idea about getting a casual black jacket to wear over my jumpsuit at Fashion Week but had no plans to get a pleather one. I tried it on not expecting much but I immediately loved it. The fit, the quilted detail and the quality of the faux leather. I believe it's similar to one Zara had a similar one last year.

Both items have worked hard since I got them. I'm loving how well the jacket has fitted into my day wardrobe - previous black jackets have felt a bit formal for the school run. And the trainers have been a surprise hit too-I am finding them so easy to throw on without dressing down my outfits too much.
Finishing with an outfit from my trip to Tipperary this week...taken down by the River Shannon and rather appropriately featuring both of these H&M gems! With a major 'don't fall into the water' face as the 5 year old took them during a walk along the jetty!

  8. Now you know how I abhor trainers ... well if you put a gun to my head, I'd probably wear those ones!!!! I am (almost begrudgingly!) liking the black and the fact that they aren't glaringly 'runners' if you know what I mean. And the jacket is great. Hope you had fun in Tipp x

  9. I saw those trainers and thought they looked so much more expensive in the flesh. I love the jacket too. H x
