Inspiring Style: Fun with H&M



Inspiring Style: Fun with H&M

H&M 2
H&M 1
I am such a big fan of H&M. And I find that now that I actually have two H&M stores so close to my house, it is virtually impossible not to shop there.

Some of you might have heard that H&M is planning to allow online shopping at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2012, so that's definitely a plus!

But since I can actually physically walk into a store and spend hours (and I mean, hours) trying stuff on, I think I'll continue spending a portion of my weekends in an H&M fitting room.




Last time I went to H&M I stocked up! This happens when you're not used to having a physical store location so close to you. I must have thought that the H&M was just a mirage and that it was only a matter of minutes before it vanished.

This new collection is super girly and feminine so I tried on tops, skirts, cardis--the whole nine!

But here is a look at what I actually took home with me...minutes before the store closed!



Blazer ~ $60 (a bit pricey, but I had to have it)

H&M Outfit
H&M Outfit 2
H&M Outfit 3








Organic cotton hearts dress ~ $20
(a great outfit for Valentine's Day)

















Long-sleeve cardigan ~ $25






H&M Outfit 4






Yours Forever top ~ $10


Fancy poncho ~ $25








What are your thoughts on my haul? And have you had any fun with H&M recently?

This is how I spent Valentine's Day by the way!

P.s. Thanks to all who entered my Apothica giveaway (which is now closed) -- the winner will be announced later this week.

The organic hearts dress is so cute on you! I love the shape of it. I'm really looking forward to H&M's spring sustainable materials collection - can't wait!

I saw that blazer last time I was in there, but couldn't get up the nerve to buy it since I hardly wear blazers anyway. It's one of those that grows on you the longer you look at it. Great stuff!

i love that heart dress.
i wish there was an H&M closer to me as well.
sometimes they have really excellent things then it's a real miss & i'm just like, maybe i'm getting too old or something?
but great finds.
and thanks for the comment! I too played the game for a while.

The floral dress is very pretty and the jacet is lovely. I don't shop at H&M for evening/going out clothes, but they are great for looking sharp around the house when I have visitors for dinner etc. Hope you had a nice Valentine. xx
