Happy Monday guys! We had an awesome weekend despite the rain and slight dip in temperatures. You see, my son turned 7 and we threw him a party on Saturday and then got to simply “chill” and spend our Sunday with my parents….AND just like that, we are suddenly back to the beginning of the week! It is nice and sunny here today, and if we didn’t have rain in our forecast for later in the week, I would say it definitely feels springy! The trees and flowers in our yard are also becoming fuller each day …so YAY! Well, I wanted to share a quick round up of a couple of my new favorite Spring outfits I purchased from two different stores. They will also be great to wear for the upcoming Easter Sunday festivities!
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
