As long as there is H&M I’ll never have money!

Sometimes I try and actively avoid the H&M website – just browsing can be fatal for me. Other times I have to take a peek if I have seen a friend on Instagram wearing something that catches my eye. In the UK stock is released earlier than here so if I do see something on a friend from over there I am constantly refreshing our site here till it arrives – OCD much?

Here’s what I have been waiting for and has FINALLY arrived here!

This pink sweater apparently fits HUGE so I have ordered a small – I have a couple of oversize knits from last year that I ended up in a small with too…it also comes in grey.

How gorgeous is this pink cashmere roll neck? Just gorgeous with grey denim.

Yes I’ll be wearing both the above jumpers with this skirt – a bit bacofoil but I love it for all year round – it’s not too festive looking and could easily be worn in the summer with tan legs and sneakers and a tee.

H&M silver pleated skirt

In 1993 I had a pair of silver pants like these from TopShop – back then I think I was in a UK 8…err not so much now. I have VERY fond memories of wearing them with my green Gazelles and a long white Kick It City t-shirt (my Husband’s magazine at the time – covering all the London football teams).

Now I’m not so sure about these leggings but you know how we all love a little leopard print – I thought I might try them with a long black sweater and sneakers?

If you’re on Instagram and haven’t seen this skirt – WHERE have you been? I think every woman in the UK now owns it – wear to the Christmas party at your peril – there will probably be a dozen more there. In Atlanta this will not be a problem!

Grey knit with a hood…what more do I need to say?

…except that there are matching jogging bottoms too!!!

This I managed to snag in store the other day – I’m wearing it in the images below. Winter, snuggly perfection.

I have a rather expensive Acne off the shoulder sweater – you could buy that – or you buy these at just $9.99!! Grey, black, red and powder colors are available.

Happy Shopping!! I’m off to clear up the debris after a tornado hit close by yesterday! Never a dull moment!

Spotted this week…

Following on from my previous post, and just to prove that procrastinating can sometimes pay off – I present to you my sequin skirt that is now on its way to me!  Not grey or blush – but a perfectly beautiful shade of indigo.  I hope it is as gorgeous in the flesh – especially as it was already in the sale and is currently an extra 50% off with code EXTRA50.

Unlike a lot of people I know I have very little blue/navy in my closet but I have definitely noticed myself being more and more attracted to navy items.  It’s such a classy color and many clothes look far more expensive, or even better quality, in navy than they do in black.  Not to mention that it is now no longer a fashion faux pas to mix navy and black.  Hence while browsing on Net-a-porter.com this morning I found myself uncontrollably besotted with these beauties.  My Newbury boot fetish continues.

It’s been an odd week to say the least.  An entire week off unexpectedly can certainly mess with your head – I feel slightly jet lagged and totally discombobulated!  We’re off tomorrow too for President’s Day, then I have 3 days at work before I’m off to the UK wooo-hooo!  Having the week off has been lovely as it has meant lots of time with the kids before I go and leave them.  Hugh even fell asleep on me yesterday – it was lovely – I hope he still wants to snuggle like that when he is 18;)

Poppy and I braved the snow the other day – I needed to return some stuff to Zara.

Friday I enjoyed a day of pampering, though to be honest 2 hours in the salon followed by a 2 hour facial was probably a little too much in one day!

Sneakers – Golden Goose // Jeans – H&M grey boyfriend jeans // T-shirt – ASOS forever t-shirt // Jacket – Zara (old) // Scarf – Zara (old)

And here is the finished result – much lighter hair – still not convinced – but a nice change regardless.

And finally a new ASOS dress to share with you.  It was in the sale and I’d been umming and ahhing about it all over the Christmas period.  I love the lace sleeves – just enough for me – and it reminds me of the lace sleeves on my wedding dress.

Off to clean my mirror…!  🙂
