It’s My Anniversary!
Guys, today is my anniversary with my darling husband! I can’t believe how time flies and yet it moves ever so slowly, or maybe it just moves by rather quickly altogether when we are happy. Either way, I am so grateful that time has this way of showing us what really matters. Today, I get to spend another day with my husband and so thankful for the joy he’s brought into my life and for my kids.
Okay, moving on from that sentimental post 🙂 ….I am sure what you really want to hear about is my H&M finds and not this display of affection for my hubby but I couldn’t resist writing just a little personal something, see? So back to my current finds. I recently went window shopping and got sucked into H&M after seeing all the cool office wear in the window display. About an hour later, I was walking out with a bag full of pleated skirts and jackets, which brings me to this current post.
I always find the collections at H&M to be reasonably priced. A jacket is usually under $35 and that works when you’re on a budget or when you don’t want to spend over $200 on a jacket. The quality is also great and the fit is what I really love about their clothes.
So let’s talk outfit; I think neutral works most of the time. They say, when in doubt, stick to a more neutral palette. For this look, I added a little pop of color to the outfit. The pleated skirt makes it super flirty and fun. The material is soft and almost satin-like. My jacket is sturdy and the fit is perfect. One of the things I like about it is the three-quarter sleeve that is scrunched and the way it sits loosely on me. I started thinking this will be awesome for work but also with jeans! Yes, I am always shopping for outfits that can be mix/match with other items in my wardrobe. Can you imagine this jacket with jeans, strapped heels, and a tank top? I completed the look my perforated crossbody bag from Francescas and the yellow pop with my shoes.
Confession….I actually picked up 3 jackets that day. This neutral toned jacket, a blue, and a pink jacket! Yikes!!! I just couldn’t beat the price for that quality and the fit. I think everyone needs a jacket, at least one jacket in their wardrobe. Yes?
Linking details of this look below. I am curious to know if you’ve shopped at H&M? Now off I go to celebrate my anniversary with the hubs (can I write that? is that even a word?). ~ xo Louise
