I've been wanting to stop by H&M for ages and finally went today. It seems like it's the one store accessible to me that's in my price range & that carries clothes that are more 'me'. I find that for fashion and styling and such, i really don't look to bloggers here in the US, but more in the UK, it's just my personal taste & what appeals to me! So it helps that H&M also carries the same clothes (for the most part) in every country, so if i see a blogger/Youtuber wearing something from H&M that i really like but doesn't live in the US, i can most likely find the item and get it for myself!
I love that H&M's overall style is chic & polished, but still young & fun. I spent about almost two hours in there and found so many great pieces, sucks i had to narrow my picks down! Maybe another payday....
Sheer 3/4-length sleeve blouse - $29.95, mint green cardigan - $19.95
Can't have too many sheer blouses can you? Think this top will look amazing with dark wash skinny jeans & flats in the fall with a cute bag. Actually had to get it in a size 4 since it was a bit too floaty... too much floatiness on me makes me look/feel really large! I always seem to buy a cardigan when i go into H&M, and this time i got this mint green colored one. I don't have a cardigan this color, think it's quite nice. :)
Aztec print cropped sweaters - $29.95 each
When i spotted this on display, i was like 'oooh, Lily totally has this!' so basically i was sold. Got it in both colors in size 12 so they're a bit bigger. They're super soft & i cannot wait to wear these!
Peach/white/black/pink striped high-waisted shorts - $12.95
These look a bit strange in the photo, but IRL they look kinda cool. When they're on, they are flowy & almost look like a high-waisted skirt, i think these would look nice with leggings & a cardigan as well during the colder months.
Clock ring - $5.95, purple cracked stone ring - around $5 (came with another ring but the stone was missing so i got 10% off)
I recently made another Forever 21 order and didn't pick up too much, as i'm trying to save my money a bit (as you can probably tell, it's not working out too well :P). I got a lace cardigan kinda thing but i didn't even include it in this post because i'm just returning it! I saw they've opened a store on Oxford Street in London and it seems like the overall feelings toward it are disappointment, and a lot of people do seem to like just the jewelry. Thought that was quite interesting, i remember when so many people were excited when they heard 21 was coming to the UK. I think Forever 21 can be quite a hit & miss really.
I'm dying to have stores like New Look or Primark (i can dream.......) open up over here. I think i would die! Or just be completely broke.
Fringe top - $17/18, feather & chain earrings - $5.80
The earrings are about 10" long, so i thought they would look quite cool with my hair down, since they would kind of blend in with my hair! Finally have some feather earrings in my collection. :) The fringe top i'm actually wearing today, very oversized & comfy, but it's made of rayon so it's a bit clingy! Really like it though, glad it's a bit longer as a lot of tops out at the moment are cropped.
Rosary - $4.80/5.80
Probably my favorite item i got, been wearing it with everything!
Feather necklace - $4.80
Considering returning this actually, the feather tends to stick out and it's just not what i thought it was going to be i guess!
