We’re packing up tonight for our return to Atlanta this weekend. I’m sorry to be leaving – it’s been another amazing vacation. Certainly eventful – a terrorist attack, an attempted coup and now searches in the area we’re staying for the coup leaders. It’s like Apocalypse Now with helicopters and fighter jets buzzing over and naval ships patrolling the waters! Never a dull moment.
In the meantime I’m relaxed enough to continue with some online shopping. Heading home has one advantage – I can wear all my closet again! Living in bikinis is fine for a month or so but there comes a time where I want to be cool enough to wear makeup and jeans!
H&M have just added a bunch of new arrivals to their site and they are absolutely killing it this season – so much to love! Here are my favorite picks today.
There’s definitely a few strong color themes – green and blue for example – but I am most enamored by some of the red items!
This off the shoulder blouse is just $24.99 and looks great with shorts or jeans.
The dress in a similar style is just $17.99 and also comes in blue – absolutely love these for making the most of my tan when I get home.
Their pilot jackets are definitely a key item to own. I blogged about the Gucci tribute the other day and this one has now appeared – just adore it in red.
The jacket will be great worn with jeans as above or these trousers – very much like the 70’s tracky bottoms I used to wear! With a plain white tee or off the shoulder top these will look brilliant.
They also come in black – you could wear these with heels even with an off the shoulder top like this below.
I have a few black dresses but if I were in the market for one this is perfect. Loose and unfitted but with beautiful trumpet sleeves and just $24.99.
This next dress is very similar to one I nearly ordered from & Other Stories. This will be great with sneakers and a tan topped up with false tan when I get back! I’m not sure I am tall enough to wear it with loose trousers but I will definitely try it over skinny jeans too.
We’ll be no where near cardigan weather for a while but when we are I will be trying this ankle length cardigan. It also comes in grey and black and it looks so elegant for just $24.99.
Blush is another color I’ve seen an awful lot of for early next season and this pilot jacket is just $34.99! It also comes in black, dark red and khaki.
Go on take a quick gander – with all the publicity H&M are getting right now they’ll be gone in a heartbeat online! Oh and check out their new sportswear – it is gorgeous!
See you back in Atlanta! xx
