That's why these photos suck. I waited until the sun went down to take them, and they didn't turn out very well. I photo-shopped them to look a little lighter, but I won't be waiting to take pictures anymore. I really loved this outfit, but I don't feel like these pictures do it justice.
Dress from H&M; Blazer from Costco
On our way home from last weekend's adventures, we passed through Barrie. Earlier I had checked to see if there was a Forever 21 to make a pit-stop. There wasn't, and I was a little disappointed but kinda happy we would make it home sooner.
Driving along the main road, my boyfriend spots an H&M and says "Look! There's an H&M! You love that store, don't you? We're stopping!" (did I mention he's awesome?). So I pulled over and we decided on a 30-minute timeline. We went into the store and I power-shopped like I've never power-shopped before. I made it through the two huge levels in under 30 minutes and went into the changeroom with 15 pieces. Yep, 15. The change-room associate was surprised and said "wow, that's a first", to which I replied "...We don't have an H&M in Ottawa". I think she understood.
I only ended up with 4 things. This dress, another dress, a clutch, and a scarf. I have a budget for clothing and shoes, and have been pretty broke recently. Unfortunately I couldn't take home more, because I definitely would have loved to. I think I could have taken home that whole store if I had the chance.
H&M, please come to Ottawa!
