B&W

Tuesday, February 19, 2013 132 0

Coat: Zara. Skirt: H&M. Turtleneck: Club Monaco. Faux Fur Stole: H&M. Boots: Nine West. Rings: Stella & Dot, BCBG, H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Today I’m wearing 2 new pieces in my wardrobe that I’m madly in love with…this Zara coat and H&M skirt.  This white coat with faux leather sleeves has been hanging in my closet for a few weeks just begging to be worn.  It’s fairly lightweight however the turtleneck and fur scarf added enough layers to keep me warm.

 

H&M came out with this skirt in yellow last season, and I stalked my local H&M every week waiting for it to hit stores.  I don’t think we ever got the yellow version here in Toronto (although I could be wrong), but as soon as I saw the fabulous Nancy from Adore to Adorn wearing the new version in eggshell, I rushed to H&M that night after work to pick it up.  Thankfully, it was in stock.  I just love the texture and fullness of this skirt.

 

Those of you reading along on Instagram or Facebook may have already seen that I posted the exciting news that one of my outfits was featured in the “reader looks” section of the March issue of InStyle Magazine.  I sincerely thank you for all of the sweet compliments and congratulations.  It’s pretty fun to see my photo in print.  I must say that this would have never happend without the sweet encouragement of two amazing woman.  Several months back, the super sweet Whitley from The Queen City Style had her look featured in InStyle, and I thought it was just the coolest thing.  Then, after I wore the outfit that was featured, the always chic Sheree from It’s Not That Deep told me that I should submit my photo to InStyle, so I thought, “hey, why not?”.  One of Sheree’s gorgeous looks was also featured last month in InStyle!  Thank you ladies!

    Jenny, this look is amazing on you, love it!
    Congrats on the magazine article, how neat is that?!
    I work right beside Scarborough Town Centre, the H&M there is having a grand re-opening this Thursday 🙂 🙂 I hope to be 1st in line when it opens, lol. This skirt is to die for, & it has pockets, omg!!!!!!!!!! I need it!!!!!!!!!!
    Enjoy your day!

      Thank you so much Donna! I’ve only been to STC once and it was a lot bigger than I thought. Hopefully the H&M is fantastic! This skirt is from the Trend line so I’m not sure if STC will carry it. The only stores I know that for sure carry H&M Trend are the Eaton Centre, Bloor Street and Yorkdale. Hopefully they have it, and I hope you have fun at the opening!

    Oh man, I lurrrvvve that skirt! H&M almost never makes skirts that are 1) full and 2) an appropriate length (for my liking!). So I’m kind of in awe right now! Next time I go by there I’ll be on the hunt for this one! Such a gorgeous look Jenny!

    Also, I pointed out your pic in InStyle to my boyfriend last night and even he thought it was awesome! Hehe 🙂

      Thanks Emily! Hmm, I wonder if the yellow one was even sold in North America? Come to think of it, I never really saw it on any bloggers, which is a bit surprising. I only saw it on Pinterest and the UK H&M website. Hmmm….

    February 19, 2013

    Such a great look Jenny!! You know, I saw that skirt in H&M, and it was my size, and I was going to purchase it but putting it up against me it seems like it would over take me because I am very petite. But after seeing this on you I am seriously regretting my decision!! I doubt it will be there still, but I will definitely check! xo

    • Jenny
      February 19, 2013

      I totally thought the same thing. I definitely thought it would overwhelm me, but I did go down a size. It’s just a tad tight on the waist but actually does make a difference in the body. I’m trying to lose a few more pounds to fit into the rest of my clothes, so hopefully by next month it will fit perfectly. Thanks so much Lauren! I hope you find it in your size!
