We were super busy moving this Memorial Day weekend, which was dramatized by the fact that our moving truck stalled and wouldn't start despite being jumpstarted by a random helpful Fedex truck:
It took 3 hours of waiting around and eventually a AAA trucking-towing truck came and got it going again. But long story short, it was a stressful and busy weekend, but we're about 80% unpacked! I did also manage to find some time to make a quick trip to the mall to make some due returns and check out the H&M sale.
While in A|X to return some things, I quickly tried on a couple items. First is the Strappy Eyelet Top in XS:
It caught my interest because I've been keeping an eye out for lace items, and this one has an interesting geometric design, as well as back ties that I thought would help with the fit. Here's how it looks untied:
I also tried on this Sleeveless Ruffle Top in XS, which I thought might look cute casually layered, but it was humongous on me:
And it turns out that's because it was meant to be wrapped:
I guess it doesn't really matter because the "waist" ties were on my hips anyway! I didn't end up buying either, but will keep the first top in mind if it goes on sale.
Finally I made it to H&M to make use of the 20% coupon PAG had so graciously shared. But unfortunately I forgot to bring the printed coupon and they wouldn't take it off my iPhone lol (hey, it worked once at Banana Republic!). I also got there ~10 minutes before closing so there wasn't a lot of time to browse, but I did run into this polka-dot ruffle skirt that ReallyPetite modeled, and tried the size 2 on just for fun:
I actually thought the ruffles were pretty flattering for my backside, and the quality felt more solid than other H&M pieces. The fit is okay but it could use some taking in:
But in the end, hubby doesn't like polka dots and they wouldn't take my "coupon" so I ended up leaving the mall empty-handed.
