If you follow me on Instagram (which I hope you are) then you know that I went on a massive shopping spree last weekend. I’ve been slowly sharing my favorites on Instagram stories, but I thought I’d share everything I’m keeping all in one place! I’m going to break it down by store and share what I kept, what’s getting returned and if I plan on picking anything else up!
You’ll also notice that a lot of these are are basic and neutrals and the main reason that is is that I’m having a lot of fun renting trendy, colorful items from nuuly so I want to make sure my closet is stocked with pieces that will compliment those more fun items!
I don’t know if I just never gave H&M the credit it deserves or if they recently stepped up their game, but over the past 2 months I’ve bought more things at H&M than I have my entire life! Now don’t get me wrong I’ve returned a lot of stuff too (I’ll get to that in a little), but the stuff I kept is PERFECT…literally made for me.
I finally found the PERFECT Mom Jeans, they’re from the H&M Conscious Collection and I’m now the proud owner of TWO pairs and I’m about to order a distressed pair. I ordered these first in a size 10 because that’s normally what my size is in H&M, but they were too loose in the waist so I picked up the 8 and they are perfect! I ordered 2 pairs of black jeans too (these & these), and while they fit really well (in my normal size 10), they weren’t perfect and I’m trying not to keep things that I don’t absolutely LOVE!
As for the sweater I also bought 2 of, I ordered the tan one in December and brought it to California with me, wore it so many times after and when it went on sale I bought the black too! It’s only $25 and I recommend picking it up even if it’s not on sale, it’s SO worth it. I also bought this orange sweatshirt for California and it’s I’m SO happy with it! I’ve always been a fan of H&M sweatshirts and this one doesn’t disappoint, plus the color is even better in person.
I saw a friend try on this leopard dress and I fell in LOVE with it, it’s going to be the perfect dress to pack for Spain because it won’t wrinkle in my suitcase.
Full disclosure I’ve love all things Mango for years, but have never actually bought anything from them before (I don’t think at least)! Now that I found the perfect black coat to replace the one I’ve had for 10 years and this awesome camel suede jacket I get the hype. I bought a trench too, but I’m going to return it because while I thought I’d love the shapeless flowy look of it, I think I want a more structured one (like this one from H&M).
I picked up this matching lounge wear set (shorts & a sweatshirt) from American Eagle after seeing it on a friend’s Instagram and couldn’t be more obsessed. I’m wearing it as I’m typing this and I wore it yesterday and I’m probably going to wear it tomorrow. It’s good and comes in multiple colors. I also just ordered another pair of mom jeans and am waiting for them to come. I ordered the same pair that I already have, but they ended up being too big (not sure how) so instead I went with a pair that has a little bit of stretch.
I’ve been wearing my favorite pair of Zella leggings from Nordstrom WAY too much so it was time for another pair. Everyone has their favorite pair of black leggings and these are hands down mine! I also ordered a pair of white Converse and a pair of white Vans, I couldn’t decide which ones I wanted and now that I’ve tried them both on I’m going to keep the Converse and send the Vans back, I’ll probably end up getting a pair of red Vans or suede black Vans.
A few other recent purchases inexpensive purchases I’m currently obsessed with is my enamel Apple Watch band that I bought before I even got my watch! I’m ordering a Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Parka to pack for my trip to Spain in a few weeks. It’s suppose to still be pretty cold at night so I wanted to bring something warm that won’t take up too much space in my suitcase. And the last thing I’m talking about are my new Naturalizer boots! I actually didn’t buy these they were gifted to me, but I can’t recommend them enough. They’re available in wide calf and wide width and multiple colors and fabrics!
