First Impression – H&M Spring 2013

28 Jan

Happy Monday! Spring is here!

No. It isn’t. I’m sorry about that. We in Canada anyhow, are far from it. Okay..not that far, however it sure does feel that way with the -17 weather we’ve been having lately. I have actually started to feel like a prisoner to my winter jacket – I wake up, I get ready to head out, and I throw on this comforter of a jacket to keep me warm on my commute to the office. I get there, I do my thing, and then I throw the comforter right back on, with gloves, a thick knit scarf, and a beanie to boot! (Yes, it’s THAT cold) I’m proud to say that I’ve taken all the right precautions this season, and have avoided the dreaded cold and flu by keeping warm, eating well and taking vitamin C, however I miss the self-expression! Does anyone know what I mean? I can’t wait to be able to throw on a pair of jeans, a cute top and a blazer, and perhaps a pair of flats! Does anyone remember flats?? Haha……honestly.

Anyhoo, I’ve noticed the new Spring and some of the Summer collection trickling in at H&M, and I wanted to share just a few of my favorite anticipated pieces. Has anyone else already gone out and picked out something for Spring? I know we’re all programmed by now to lust after the pastel shades, flowers, whites, beiges, and the occasional POP of color when Spring rolls around, and will it get tired eventually? Perhaps. But after feeling like a Nona in my feather filled coat day in and day out for 3 months, I can’t wait to rock some of these pieces out. The tassel detailed accessories? That studded vest, and those spring jackets? Yes!

I’m in love with all most of the items from the Spring 2013 collection. I appreciate that H&M has decided to ease into the season by keeping  dark, cool colors such as reds, greens, blues and of course black in a lot of their pieces. This creates a much easier transition from your fall and winter wardrobe into spring and summer; unless of course you’re a big fan of just walking out of your house one sunny day, in an all-pastel concoction as a way of announcing that you have officially left winter behind. (Don’t try this at home)

I’ve even included some of my personal favorites for the boys! That striped-short, baseball cap, sweater combo?? I adore!

      I’m obsessed with creams too. Hopefully I don’t look transparent this spring

        No way, if anything it heaves a fresh appearance! I usually wear a loud lip color for flair. 🙂 TC!
