SLIDER

interlude

 coat: h&m, black men's tank top, jeans: genetic denim, shoes: urban outfitters (similar), scarf: h&m

I took a break from sunny California to go home for the weekend for my cousin's sweet sixteen! Even though I was home for less than 48 hours, it was worth it. Although I can't say I ever want to have a job that includes lots of traveling. Worse? This is my last time flying this year before the holiday season; it's not the most wonderful time of the year... at the airport.

Finally after spending all that time complaining about not being able to indulge in wearing cold weather clothing, the time has come. Actually, I bought this $70 coat for a mere $7 at H&M in August, but obviously have been unable to wear it till now. Cause I was a fan of this coat from the Swedish retailer, I decided to purchase 2 other coats from the online H&M shop. Unfortunately, they were enormous and turned out to be a major disappointment. Usually their clothes tend to run small, but I guess when it comes to their outerwear, they run large? On a brighter note, they did/do have a buy one get one free winter accessories sale, so I got two plaid scarves for the price of one!

  13. Love this color combo, the scarf really brings out the color of your coat! And yeah H&M can be unreliable with sizing. Don't get me started about their pants....

  17. There are somethings that I like about H&M and one of them is that you can get really great deals. I just bought 2 sweaters for the price of one the other day from the BOGO sale. But you definitely got a great steal for that coat!

  24. Wow, that was a great purchase! I loved the coat and loved even more the plaid scarf (I love things with red!) It's so nice to be with family, to go for the sweet 16! But I understand what you mean about airports. There was a time I used to like them very much. And went on travelling and travelling. Like I still do. But after some time I started to get tired. I want to stay more at home. But, guess what, when I stay a bit more at home, I start getting bored. Oh, I don't know what's wrong with me, but believe me, I understand what you meant! denisesplanet com

  25. Are you serious? That jacket for $7? I was just at H&M looking for a jacket, but they were full priced. I love this look, perfect for these cold days.

  26. Loving the plaid scarf and the color of the amazing blue coat!! I agree--spending time at the airport during holiday season is the worst. Ugh. I'm glad I'm not traveling this year :)
