Trendy Tuesdays

Nick and I went shopping on Saturday (after a crazy trip to the dog beach) and I went straight to H&M. Um. Have you been there? I die. I tried on 13 things, and I could have tried on 20 more! Their summer collection is amazing. It is called Conscious Collection, and it is the opitomy of Summer to me. I will let the ad campaign speak for itself.


Don't they make you just want to twirl around in the sun? Maybe frolic in a field? Whatever suits your fancy. They really nailed the summer vibe.

I can tell that I am going to have a serious love affair with white this season. Not only does white compliment dark hair marvelously, but it looks great with a nice tan. I happen to have both of those things, especially during summer. H&M is really focusing on whites and neutrals for the summer. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.
The scalloped shorts & blazer combo in the last image have haunted my dreams ever since I left the store. I need them for work this summer, I just do. I think I will have to go back and get it. What do you think?

I left with a beautiful white crochet top and a white chiffon top. I couldn't find either of them online, so I suppose I will have to model them for you. (or just take a picture of them laying on my bed. We'll see) You know when you convince yourself not to buy something, and then once you leave the store you will forget all about it? That is not the case here. I want everything I left behind. Dang you, H&M. You got me again!

Cute stuff! I'm currently waiting for our H&M to open here in Dallas. We've had a preview store but it didn't do much for me.

love love love. These are so beautiful. I'm not lying when I say that if I had seen some of these long dresses I would have worn it when I walked down the aisle instead of David's Bridal.

I had a bad experience at H&M over the holidays and have been scared to go back since. Even though I know it was due to going to the mall of america right around christmas, and nothing about H&M specifically, I've been avoiding both H&Ms nearby ever since...

i'm sorry, i'm an enabler, so i say BUY THE SCALLOPED SHORTS AND BLAZER! they're timeless. i've seen the shorts a few places and love them!
and if you could be a fly on the wall when i'm dancing around to "fancy footwork". i think i've got some great moves but i'm sure i look like a crazy person. such a good song and glad you liked it!

OMG, I'm DROOOOLING. Love these neutrals and these outfits! So, so, much!! But you know what I love the most? I haven't been in H&M for awhile but have been going crazy trying to stop myself from buying any anthropologie pieces... well, you just showed me that H&M has a lot of the comparable pieces! Love you for that! And yes, white and dark hair goes together very well! One of my favorite reasons to go back to dark.
