Coat - H&M
If you can't tell from what I'm wearing, I particularly love H&M. It has been one of my favorites stores for years. It wasn't until recently that H&M launched its site online, so I'm still not use to being able to order from H&M online. So whenever I go to a city big enough to have an H&M (because obviously my small town doesn't have an H&M), I always go all out.
Recently I've been eyeing matching skirts and tops. I thought for summer, they would be great items. While I was at H&M, I found this navy, gingham skirt and matching crop top. I was initially hesitant for two reasons, 1) It's navy. I own almost nothing navy because almost my entire wardrobe is black. I wasn't sure how the navy would look with the black. 2) It's a crop top. I've never worn crop tops before, and I wasn't sure how it look on my body. As much as I love clothes, I often find myself rather self conscious about my body. But after trying the two pieces on, I loved both of them and decided to go for it.
The second outfit is the same crop top and high waisted jeans from Urban Outfitters. Recently, my favorite pair of jeans that I bought in London has been dying out. I love, love high waisted jeans (I really can't stand anything below mid-rise), and one of my friends has this great pair of high waisted jeans from Urban Outfitters. So while I was in Denver, I ended up buying the same exact pair as her. I kept the crop top on with this to show how high waisted the jeans are.
Finally, there's the coat. Oh, the coat. It seems like all of the street style stars have either a) a tailored, menswear inspired coat, or b) a pink coat. When I saw this coat on the racks of H&M it practically called to me. It called, "Elizabeth! I'm over here! I'm the coat of your dreams!" And boy was it right. It fits me absolutely perfectly, and is an item I've been looking for just can't find where I live.
That's all for now. Tomorrow is my last day of finals and my last day of school. Summer here I come! I might have one or two pictures from my actual trip to post. Hopefully soon!
