tinge.

i may have mentioned before that we do not have an h&m here.
i have never set foot in one. when my sister was in california last week, i received this text:

"is there anything you must have from h&m?
i have one hour at the mall."

i immediately scoured their website and started sending her pictures of things that i wanted. as luck would have it, they either didn't have my size or the online items weren't in the shop yet. so i told my sister just grab anything SPRING and MINTY and FLORAL. this top was her translation of that [haha]. she and i have very different tastes and styles. i did, however, enjoy all the trader joe's goodies she brought back.

pardon the purple-ish tinge in these photos. not sure what happened, and in trying to color correct them,
i turned out quite pastey.

i'm having so much fun on instagram.
if you are on, help me find you!

  4. It's SO crazy that you don't have an H&M there, for shame. I think you would love it. This blouse looks great with the wide legged jeans, such a great boho feel to it. mMMM brownies

  5. I've not yet tried those TJ's bars- must try! I get frustrated with H&M because the locations in my city don't usually carry the stuff I want either, and if they do it sells out right away!

  6. ohmygosh.. my sister in law was just in San Diego and she popped into an H&M too. I messaged her the items on wanted, but their sizing is so OFF. I'm normally a 10, but apparently I'd be a 16 there. :( my sissy tried on the pants I wanted (the floral pair!!! eep!) and her tiny size 2 / 4 body fit into a size 10. so bummed... but oh well. i picked up some floral fabric over the weekend and hopefully I can whip me up a pair of trousers... just gotta find the time.

    i always love these pants on you, B. you wear them so well!! i hope you've been great. miss ya.

    xx Love & Aloha

  7. My sister and I are pretty different as well as far as style goes. I like the top though and those wide leg denim trousers are a great mix with it. The hat is cute too. We just got an H&M last fall. I was pumped to go too and have only been once. I have to say, there is a lot of cute stuff, but it's not all that. Mainly, it is just like a F21 or Charlotte Russe. Lots of youngins and loud annoying music. Lots.

    1. i'm sure you're right...one of the tops wasn't the best quality.

  8. Love you outfit as usual! Maybe the camera's White Balance was set to tungsten that's why there was a blue tone in the pictures? :)

  9. I always thought I'd LOVE having an H&M in Tacoma, but when I do make my way in there I'm always kind of meh. Other bloggers look WAY better in their stuff. :) I wore almost the same thing today! Floral blouse (mine's long sleeve 'cause it's cold) and really wide leg pants. Great minds and all that!

  11. I went to a H&M once in Portland and was not that impressed.. maybe it was an off day? I mean I like what I've seen online and I like your outfit, but perhaps it was a clear out day or something. Anyway, that's nice of your sister to pick something out for you.

    I love Trader Joes! And I can't wait until they extend instagram to Android users.

  36. I pretty much live in clothes from H&M- there are two very large shops, literally 2 minutes away from my work, in opposite directions, so there really is no escape. Such good value though- I've picked up four summer dresses and a playsuit already. EEEESHK! x

  38. I have never been inside H&M either. There is not one anywhere near me. I have been meaning to go to one when I am in New York but I am always so busy while in New York I have managed to fit it into my schedule yet. It was so sweet of your sister to get that top for you (which is totally darling by the way) even if it wasn't exactly what you were describing to her.

  41. Oh, how I love sisters. I love Trader Joe's as well.
    I still can't believe you have NEVER set foot in an H&M. Too weird. I guess I just assume these things even though I now live in a state with no H&M, Zara, Mango.... The list just keeps going.

  42. perfect hat for spring!! and umm I'm obsessed with all things Trader Joe's.

  48. You look adorable...even tinged a little lilac"y".
    Love those jeans and the top is too cute with them.
    Seriously...if you ever want me to send you anything from H&M, just ask. I can walk to the store from here and selection is great.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Those are the single MOST flattering and fun pair of jeans I have ever seen! I love the seaming on the sides and the lighter wash...plus they are the perfect length on you, looks so chic.

    The top might not be "your thing" but you've styled it so well, it looks great.

  54. I have that top in all white! I think your sister did a great job :) And I think you did an even greater one styling the top with wide-leg jeans and a tropical hat.

    P.S. Trader Joe's is my personal addiction :)

  55. Love the top especially with the jeans! The closest H&M to me is in Atlanta and that's just not gonna happen anytime soon :o)

  56. I had no idea shops were still selling flared jeans! I haven't seen a pair since the turn of the millenium! It's been skinny skinny skinny for ages now. I'm impressed.
