Here comes the... rain?



Outfit Details:

top - Calvin Klein, jeans - Gap, necklace - H&M, shoes - Gucci, jacket - H&M

After several days of warm weather and sunshine, I think I've been spoiled. Today's colder temps and overcast skies just about caught me by surprise. I never realized how much the weather affected my family's mood until recently. During our unusually cold and rainy spring, DH and I were pretty much snapping at each other over the most ridiculous things. But over the beautiful days of the last week, we've been acting like newlyweds with stolen kisses and lots of smiles. Maybe it's a sign that we need to move South.


This is a new jacket that I picked up at H&M today. I like that it's a slightly girlier take on the military jacket/anorak trend.  Also, the slight puffed shoulder and high waistline flatter my rectangular shape. The fact that it was marked down to $20 sealed the deal. I pretty much think a jacket you like that's in the $20 range (or less) is something that needs to be taken home... regardless of how many jackets are already in your closet. I probably won't feel this way during my next closet purge, but we'll deal with that when the time comes.

Cute jacket and what a great price for it! I heard a rumour that my city is finally getting an H&M, so here's hoping!!

Cute outfit! It makes your waist look so tiny! I know what you mean about the weather. Wisconsin leaves something to be desired in that department. Cant wait to move!

@matilda - See, you totally get my logic. Can you speak to my DH now? LOL

@carly - I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I actually heard a rumour recently that my city might get an Anthropologie! Super excited for that one to be true.

@purses - Aw thanks.. a tiny waist is definitely not something I was blessed with. Makes me happy about my purchase. :)

I love that jacket. I really regret not buying those Gucci shoes in more colors. I love the shape of the toe.
