Abstract Print and the City

Over the last couple of days, I've been on a major H&M shopping spree after I made the mistake of stepping into the store while irresistible end-of-season sales were going on. Since I hadn't bought anything for a couple of weeks beforehand, it was like opening the floodgates of shopaholic spending and being washed away by my lust for cute, colourful spring and summertime pieces.

This particular spree started off as a moment of indecision yesterday morning while choosing my outfit of the day. I was to have a photoshoot with an old friend later in the evening but was feeling too uninspired by my wardrobe to create anything truly innovative. As a result, I walked into H&M in the hopes of finding something to stir my creative juices-- I ended up finding much more than expected, as well as spending much more. This cute "NYC" sweater and abstract print skirt were just two of the pieces that I acquired; the fact that they were both 50% off was too much to resist!

Have you been sucked in by any tempting sales lately?

  11. I LOVE the skirt! What a find!
    I would have no idea how to style it but you have done it so effortlessly!
    It really does work with those shoes and the jumper relaxes the hole outfit but in a very 'chic' way :)
    Really nice mixing of pattern, colour and style :)

  15. What a cute look! I'm in love with that sweater and I might buy it hoho so don't get mad if you see it in one of my posts! the look is so cute and perfect for spring, the shoes are to die for as well and you look as beautiful as always in these pictures :) I haven't got sucked-in in any sale lately but I've been buying online like a crazy person! my husband keep seeing this new stuff and he just wonders where does it come from because he does not see me going to stores! lol An H&M just opened around my house (the closest was an hour away) so I need to go and check it out... but I'm so afraid I will come out of it with a huge bill because they have super cute stuff!
    Have a great weekend :)


  16. Beautiful outfit! Love the necklace and the shoes.

  17. So cute! That skirt is gorgeous. It looks so couture - very Prabal Gurung (at least to me). H&M always has amazing finds. I'm not usually a fan of city based clothing but I'm digging the sweatshirt. Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for quilted fabric.

  18. amazing outfit. you really got style! thr printed pants are amazing and i love your big necklace!

  19. so comfortable and sexy style I like it, mainly sweatshirt!

  20. beautiful outfit! i love it all, especially that skirt!

  21. Absolutely loving that vibrant print of the skirt with the orange heels.


  22. Oooh my gosh this is probably one of my favorite looks of yours yet! I love the skirt and the sweater individually, and they look even better paired together! Haha I am usually that friend that is always pushing my friends when shopping to limit their spending but girl, these were definitely worth it! ;)

  25. You have mixed and matched every piece really well together! Love that top, aslo the necklace. You look very beautiful ! :)

  26. That's exactly what i've been going through a couple of days. Simply everywhere I go, I get tempted by those sale signs that are probably everywhere. And guess what, I couldn't resist them, so i bought some hot pieces that i'll be showing later this week on my blog.
    But nevermind you did some good picks and I so love ur abstract printed skirt. So perfect for this hot summer days that we are having lately.
    I'm also thinking of getting a pair of orange, red, pink just some coloured heels too. They're looking so great on you. Hope your weekend went good so far. :)
