Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We worked on some fun projects, ate yummy food (some of these places shown above we’re from last week), ran around downtown, played with the pups, watched the Oscars, and I did a little closet cleaning. Does anyone else find themselves overdoing it with denim? My closet section dedicated to my jeans was getting out of control, so Saturday night I did a clean out. And boy did it feel good. I have so many pairs of jeans, yet I always feel the need to buy more. Is it a denim thing, or do I have a crazy obsession? Tell me you do this too? I also got my H&M order in the mail and did a couple try on’s. I loved this H&M military style jacket, but sadly it was too big. Other than that though, I didn’t love anything (I’ll share everything I ordered in a later post). I always end up returning everything at H&M, so I keep telling myself not to buy anything from their site. The fun, affordable, trendy pieces always suck me in… but for reals this time, I told Mike to keep me accountable. I had success with the petite-friendly faux fur coat last month, but other than that, I don’t know when the last time I found something worth sharing. Have you scored anything from H&M lately?

Okay, now I’m just rambling. Anyway, I’m looking forward to working out, watching the Bachelor, and going to be early this week. Cheers to a fantastic Monday!

    Hey girl! Love these recaps. Now I NEED sushi right now…as if I’m not obsessed enough with sushi…LOL!
    So, about H&M…honestly, I agree with you for the most part. I have very good luck when I stick to the premium quality pieces. They do have nice cashmere sweaters and I’ve picked up a few 100% cotton button ups & blouses. That’s it tho. Aside from those few categories, I prefer to stick to higher quality brands even though it means fewer items and purchases.
    So, I’m curious…how many pair of jeans are you eliminating from your stash? Yes, I keep buying jeans too. Can’t help myself. And now these darn Levi’s are taking to a new level of crazy!

      Yes, you’re so right. I need to stick to higher quality brands and just have less. I ended up throwing 1 pair away, putting 1 pair in the sell pile, and saving about 10 for the day I’m pregnant (lol). I have a ton of large boyfriend jeans that will hopefully get used one day. There’s a huge pile of jeans that I want to wear day-to-day just at home or for running errands. I say that, but those will probably end up in the sell pile in 3 months lol. And yes, Levi’s are killing me right now. I want every pair!!!

    Such a great weekend! I love that H&M jacket! I find pieces here and there at H&M, but for the most part, I’d rather spend my money elsewhere!

      Yes, I’m starting to feel the same way… even the pieces that I’m like, yes a steal, don’t fit :(

    I have the same denim problem haha I thought I was the only one. H&M sometimes works out for me though. I can usually find dupes of higher end pieces if I look hard enough. I actually just bought a lace camisole similar to one at Annie bing and a really nice white sweater similar to one at free people. You have to look and not pay attention to their fast fashion, look for more timeless pieces. I really enjoy reading your blog everyday ! Thanks Crystalin
