H and M comes thru again...

H&M is proving to be my go-to spring/summer store. While I'll admit that sometimes it can be a bit too
Euro-23-year-old-ish, most of the time their styles are totally doable for just about anybody. I'm loving their bright colour-blocking pieces (though I didn't buy any this time) and their summery pastels and whites. Even better, the prices are ridiculous- they're practically giving their stuff away.
However,
Dear H&M, please start steaming your merchandise before you hang it on the racks. This was a seriously wrinkled haul and Mama hates ironing!

{I'll get my Chloe inspired bag on the cheap, only 10 bucks! }
{ Roar for more animal prints}
 {This top is black not grey but my Nikon disagrees}
 {Ughhhh,  ironing blazers suckssss -why do you do this to me H&M?}
 {pretty in (peachy)pink}
 {White pants are the epitome of summer. But since I practically live at the North Pole I almost never wear them here. These ones are heading to Greece with me}

I'm finally wrapping my mind around the idea of warmer weather clothing. The farmers almanac says it's supposed to be a "super hot year" but I'll believe it when I see it.  Right now I'm still hoping my garden/flowers don't get killed by our cold nights, we're still having frost warnings. Even in June there's no guarantee that we won't get a bit of snow...
But today the sun is shining and its 23 degrees Celsius out. I'm off to the greenhouse to buy more plants for my flower beds- I might wear my white pants.

Yay! There's our bag ; ) I want white pants so badly but I know I'd spill on them within an hour of wearing them. Glad to hear it's a bit warmer down there. It's nice and sunny here too.

and H&M has definitely had a good year in my book ;-)

I just love H&M but agree that they need to steam their clothes! It's so annoying to have to come home to do that when you haven't even worn the item yet!

Great choices, what would we do without H and M?
Yay for warm weather, I can´t believe it´s so cold where you live, I thought it was cold over here in Germany!

Those are some great basics for summer! I LOVE H&M. I always find something when I go there.

It's hard living in Chicago with our crappy weather. I feel your pain sister. :-)

I've become too afraid of white pants & tend to hide behind the darker colors, plus I spill on myself oh at least once a day... :)

H&M is always a summer hit, but i totally know what you mean on the euro front and a bit youngish.

Sending you extra sunshine!
