Catching Up - Basics Dresses from H&M

I've had these two dresses from H&M photographed ages ago, but have had such a huge blog backlog that I just never got around to posting them. I really like both looks though, and have got a lot of casual wear out of them so decided that I'd still go ahead and pop them onto here. The basics range in H&M is so good for comfy day wear dresses, and I find that I easily fit in the XL of the main range, even with my larger sized bust.

The first stripy number was a sale bargain at just £6. Sadly it's no longer on the website, but they have lots of stripy options at the moment, and that whole sailor chic aesthetic is going to be a huge trend for SS16. Stripes will be everywhere!

It's one of those dresses which is just very easy to wear, and is simply teamed with all black everything for monochrome styling with minimal effort. It's my go to errand running outfit at the moment, where it looks like I'm put together even though my brain is slowly melting.

This floral mustard dream is still on the site, and even though it's a little tight across my stomach, I love it so much. Like the stripy option above, it has a racer back and high neck and is a great casual option for running around in. It's one of those dresses that I feel pretty cute in whenever I wear it, and works paired with black whilst we're in the colder months. I've tended to wear it with slightly grungy make-up (dark eyes, purple-red matte lips) and found that the ditsy print offers a bit of a Courtney Love throwback with the right accessories.

I find that these sort of basics make up a huge part of my wardrobe. They are the sort of items which are great by themselves in the summer months, but layer so easily for this time of year! It's always worth keeping an eye on the online H&M sale section. Very often, there are excellent plus size bargain to be had by those with nifty fingers!

Until next time,
