I went absolutely bonkers at H&M the other day.  I can't get over how many amazing Fall pieces they have for under the $50 mark.  I even saw a few things on my way out the door which have been haunting my dreams since I left.  These snake print jeans were in the H&M Fall "magazine" and I marked a giant star next to them the moment I laid eyes upon them, so I guess it was meant to be.  However, they fit so much better than I would have expected.  I might even go out on a limb and say they rival the fit of my much-loved J Brands...

Christen said...

Wow. Those are stunning! I love what H&M has in stores right now. As soon as I have the money, I am going to clear out their merchandise single-handedly! :)

I wish I had an H&M closer to where I live. I went shopping and had to keep myself from spending oodles amount of money!

i hope you enjoy you weekend - the wind is blowing like crazy - guess the fall is finally here, xoox

Leah said...

I love your jeans. This is one reason why I'm scared to enter H&M. I always overspend since everything is just so affordable.

Those are like the most amazing jeans I have ever laid eyes on. Oh, I loathe the fact that there is no H&M located near me. Obviously, I need to move. :)

i love how this look is preppy with an edge. brooks brothers is my ultimate love. and yes, h&m is really pushing the boundaries for stores that are affordable yet completely fashionable and on trend.
