It’s been a crazy week. Mostly spent cleaning and preparing to host all of the kindergarten parents, then cleaning and recovering! The party was fun though and I was relieved to find that many of the parents are as odd as we are:)
This morning I had my annual physical so after being prodded, pricked and poked (oo-er misses) I was in desperate need of some retail therapy. I headed down to Atlantic Station to our big H&M store, convincing myself that it would be a great place to find a present for a party that Poppy is heading to today. Of course I had to take a peek at the women’s section which conveniently you have to walk through to get to the kids’ section! It’s actually a bit of a minefield choosing clothes for someone else’s eight year old, especially as I am basing my choices on Poppy’s current obsessions. She loves anything with animals or leopard print (I wonder who she takes after?) and H&M have animals in abundance!
So before heading up to the children’s section here’s what I found myself with – nothing I wore goes with what I bought – forgive me – not how I plan to style them!
This great shaggy gilet may not be everyone’s cup of tea – but I love the fact it is longer and shaggy – though we’ll see how much dust and dirt gets trapped in it! I used to have a coat just like it bought on Portobello Market years ago that my Husband loved! I can’t see it online right now but it was $69 and there are similar here. Oh it’s big too – this is a small.
This is also a small – again $69 – a great coatigan with a cocoon shape. I think this will look great with skinny black jeans and ankle boots.
Finally I loved this sweater with a silky print front. I love the greenish color of the snake print – it coordinates with my petrol newbury boots perfectly! This is a medium – I think H&M sizing is definitely on the large side! Again sorry I can’t see it online.
And here is what I wore today! Probably still too warm for a jacket but I wanted to wear it!:)
Trousers – Mango (old) // Top – TopShop camisole ($10 from Nordstrom!) // Jacket – Zara (old) // Shoes – Lotta from Stockholm clogs
I used to have a jacket like the gilet, but it did pick up dust and things. Love the choices, and especially the hair… it’s grown a good bit. Are you going long?
p.s. Sorry I never got around to sending you my press kit. I had a look at it and no wonder I never got any offers. Worked on the new website instead.
Yes the hair is growing fast – I felt like too much came off when I had it shaped last time so trying to go as long as possible before my next trim – I might keep it in a bob for a while but fancy getting it long enough for a pony tail again – really enjoying having it longer for a change! Cheaper too!:)
