I told you girls I’d be back with another post this weekend ūüėČ ¬†I did a little try-on haul from H&M on Stories today¬†(I’ll save it to my highlight, in case you missed it) and thought I would share a little recap of everything I purchased, how it fits, what I’m keeping & what’s going back.

As you know, I’m trying to keep it somewhat budget over here with #acomspwedding happening in four and a half months, but it’s so hard with summer finally here and all the cute, new pieces in stores! ¬†I placed an online order last weekend, mainly in an attempt to up my office wardrobe a little, and ended up finding pieces that will work for weekday and weekend. ¬†So let’s jump in!

GREY OFF SHOULDER TEE  |  WHITE DENIM SKIRT WITH ZIPPER

I saw this tee and immediately envisioned it working for the office with a pencil skirt and then on the weekend with high waisted girlfriend jeans. ¬†I sized down to a small so it would be snug across the waist and you can wear it on or off the shoulder. ¬†It’s a stretchy cotton, very comfortable and regular length, plus it’s only $15!

This zipper front denim skirt basically sparked this entire order–it’s so nice! ¬†The denim is thick and doesn’t stretch, so it’s definitely snug fitting. ¬†I’m wearing a size 8 but wondering if a 10 would be better; but I do feel like a 10 would be too big in the hips and leg areas. ¬†I loved the raw hem and that you can also open the zipper from the bottom if you wanted to.

FLORAL DRESS

I saw this dress and loved the print. ¬†The style is very similar to this dress I have, which I’ve worn to the office, and was hoping I could do the same with this one. ¬†That said, I think it’s a tad on the short side, but I’m so in love with the style, print and fit I want to keep it. ¬†I really love it belted for date night. ¬†The v in the front has a hook & eye, so you can claps it to create a keyhole effect. ¬†I’m wearing a size 10.

HIGH WAIST SKINNY JEANS

So in love with these jeans! ¬†I was looking for some non-designer, high waist, medium wash jeans and these came through. ¬†You girls know I will splurge when I find a good pair of jeans, but I wasn’t quite ready to drop a big chunk of change yet.

These have washed up amazing, and I put them in the dryer to bring them back to size after wearing them–they stretch out a little, but not in a bad way. ¬†They have a good stretch to them and I love the distressing on the back of the ankles. ¬†I’m wearing my usual size, 30.

PAPERBAG WAIST CULOTTES / PANTS

I’ve already shared these pants in an outfit post, but I wanted to share them here again because they just got marked down to half price! ¬†This style is so trendy this year, it’s a great budget-friendly way to jump onboard. ¬†I’m wearing a size 10 and thinking I could have gone with an 8.

PEPLUM LACE CAMI  |  SIMILAR LACE PENCIL SKIRT

The model is wearing this exact outfit on the website and when I saw it, I had to have the whole thing; so pretty! ¬†You can wear the top tucked in or untucked–both ways look so good. ¬†Would be an amazing wedding guest outfit too.

The peplum cami is really pretty, I don’t have anything like this and love that it cinches the waist to give some shape. ¬†This would be great with a higher waisted denim, especially if you’re looking to camouflage a tummy. ¬†I’m wearing a size 8 and because the straps are adjustable, it’s the perfect fit.

This skirt is gorgeous and comfortable, very stretchy and I love that the lace goes beyond the lining. ¬†That said, it’s also a tad big on me in the size 10 and I don’t feel held in. ¬†I prefer skirts that have some structure or thickness to kind of suck you in, and this is more like a comfortable pair of leggings. ¬†I think it’s all in what you prefer, I wish this was more structured, but I know a lot of girls would prefer how comfortable this is too–totally personal preference!

UPDATE: Looks like my exact skirt is out of stock, but this one is almost identical but perhaps a little more structured as it has a zipper in the back.

HIGH WAIST WHITE DENIM

Oh. Em. Gee. ¬†These jeans, you guys! ¬†I didn’t have high hopes for these, but seriously am blown away. ¬†These were on sale for $15 and I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair of non-distressed white skinnies–I can’t believe it! ¬†These are stretchy and kind of thick, they feel amazing and look great. ¬†The pockets on the back are a great size and I love the four-button fly.

I will note that you could see my top tucked into them, but I’m wearing nude underwear and you cannot see it at all. ¬†There are no front pockets (sewn shut) and they are high waisted. ¬†I’m wearing my usual size, 30. ¬†You need to get these!

GREY OFF SHOULDER TEE |  BLACK JERSEY PENCIL SKIRT

I so wanted to love this skirt, but sadly it was too big; I’m wearing a medium. ¬†I was looking for a plain, longer, jersey skirt that I could wear under this dress (which is too short on it’s own), and I thought this would be it.

Unfortunately this will be going back and I’ll perhaps try the small or even extra small. ¬†The length is great, there is a slit in the back and the waist band is a narrow elastic–don’t love that element, but for $19, I can look past it.

DISTRESSED DENIM SKIRT

This denim skirt is from last year but I had to include it because H&M brought it back this year! ¬†It looks just like the more expensive ones but is under $40. ¬†It’s a stiff, thick denim, high waisted and I went with a size 8. ¬†There definitely isn’t any stretch, so keep that in mind for your sizing, it’s quite stiff.

HIGH WAIST DISTRESSED GIRLFRIEND JEANS

I love these jeans! ¬†I have a full outfit post coming with these, but you’ve also seen them in this post with an off shoulder top. ¬†I was looking for a pair of girlfriend-style jeans that was flattering and tried on what felt like a hundred different pairs. ¬†I ended up pulling the trigger on these and haven’t looked back. ¬†I find myself constantly reaching for these as they are roomy and comfortable, plus the distressing is perfect.

I chopped the hems off myself because I wanted them to be cropped and a raw hem, and they wash up amazing.  I went up a size to a 31, and they are a little roomier everywhere (including the waist), which is the look I was going for.  Bonus, they are now on sale!

FLUTTER SLEEVE BLOUSE  |  HIGH WAIST WHITE DENIM

This blouse is perfect for the office and I love it! ¬†My only qualm is it doesn’t come in every colour of the rainbow, because I would buy it.

The fit is fantastic, I’m wearing a medium, and it’s long enough that you can tuck into a pair of pants. ¬†Perfect for the office or an event with family, the boatneck is super flattering and I love the tiered bell sleeves. ¬†A great piece for year round and also comes in orange, white with small black polka dots & a floral print.

WHITE DISTRESSED DENIM MINI SKIRT  |  SIMILAR BODYSUIT

This might be my fave item of the entire haul–I love this mini skirt! ¬†The distressing is so good and it’s only $34! ¬†It reminds me of this Citizens of Humanity skirt for a fraction of the price. ¬†The denim is stiff and there isn’t really any stretch, it’s high waisted and I’m wearing a size 8.
