Lunch break at H&M

Pin It
Where I work is only 5 minutes away from the mall. It’s convenient but also dangerous at the same time. I typically go there 2-3 times a week at lunch just to look around. Today is one of those days. I didn’t find anything that I liked last week at H&M. Today, with the 20% off coupon in hand, I was hoping to find something there.


I love love love this skirt (couldn’t find it online for some reasons). The color is absolutely stunning in person. It’s a flattering knit pencil skirt in beautiful mint color ($24.95). Comes with a baby pink faux-leather belt. I am wearing a size small in this picture. The fit is perfect and I also am loving the length. However, it’s pretty sheer. It looks decent from the front but shows every lump and bump from the back. I'll spare you the details. I really wanted to take this skirt home with me but decided not to. Verdict: Passed.


I’ve been looking for a mod dress for quite some time. I was happy to spot this dress in a springy floral print. This is one of the dresses from the H&M Conscious Collection. The price is super affordable ($14.95) with or without the coupon. The dress is made of thick cotton. There is a deep v-neckline but can be easily fixed with a nude cami. I am wearing a size 2 in this picture. This is one of those easy dresses that you can just throw on for the weekend. I can’t wait to pair it with a pair of white sandals when the weather gets warmer. Verdict: Bought.


I am always on the lookout for work pants that fit. This peachy color pants caught my attention as soon as I walked into the store. The length is great for someone my height. I am wearing a size 2 in this post but ended up getting a size 4. They run a bit smaller than a typical size 2 at H&M. The color is perfect for Spring. The price is also affordable at $14.95. Verdict: Bought. Note: The 20% off coupon expires this Sunday (4/22).

Enjoy the rest of your week,
Sydney

5 min from H&M? How lucky! If my office is that close, you'll see me there at lunch everyday! Thanks for the coupon!

Love the dress on you. I am about 5' 1", with 4 young kids. Still trying to shed off my post partum belly. I weigh 115 lbs, trying to be 100 lbs. Anyways, I can't wait to head off to H&M to see if the dress looks ok on me. Thanks for your post.

The closest H&M is about 100 miles away and they don't deliver to my state, needless to say I am uber jealous, but the pieces look great. You seriously have amazing taste.

LOL I agree with Tanacious Me. If my work place was close to any mall I probably visit everyday during lunch time! By the way I really like the floral dress on you.

Oh my gosh, I want that dress! Going to HM tomorrow ;) Tks for sharing the coupon!

That dress is floral and spring/summer perfect! Glad it fits you well. Waiting to see your paring with the pant. light colored pants are tough to work with for me.

I love both the dress and those pants! I can't wait to see how you style the pants. Too bad about the skirt...I've been wanting something mint colored but I certainly wouldn't want to have to wear a slip with it for sure ;)

Olyvia

I love these peachy hues on you! That print dress looks so pretty! Great finds! I really really need to visit my H&M!

Elle

I love the mint knit skirt! I didn't see it when I was there over the weekend...I guess I'll have to go back soon! :)

Thanks for the review Sydney, I can always count on you for the latest H&M news (comes with the territory when you work five minutes away from the mall, hehe)

just tututiny

Love the peach pants. Will have to try it on first though cause I tend to be picky when choosing pants. Thanks for the review!

That mod dress looks like it was made for you - so very pretty! Envious that your H&M is so close, mine is 25 minutes away :(

It was my first time at H&M today at the mall. Loved the prices & styles. Totally mortified that my once petite body doubled in size after having my babies. I tried on the white and peach strapless dress, instead of the dress on this post (husband picked it out). In other stores I'm a size 4 or 6, but only size 8 fits on me. *sigh* Maybe one day I'd love to shop there after I lose 15 lbs!

Rinny

Aww it's too bad the skirt wasn't fitting so well in the back - the color looks so pretty on you! I really like the mod dress on you too :)

Love the mint skirt and those peach pants!

I saw this skirt at H&M as well and had decided to come back grab it at a later point but they were all gone in a week! I was sulking over it till i read your post. Maybe I wouldn't have liked it as much if I had tried it on as well :) But the color was sooooo perfect and unique.
