Look at this ~Winter Hat~



I liked my outfit today until I started taking pictures of it, and then I didn't anymore! How frustrating. Also my hair was/is super unwashed, so it kinda ruined the whole effect. Therefore I took off the dumb old sweater I'd been wearing, and shoved my head into this winter cap. And forgot to take any further full-body shots.






I'm wearing: F21 dress, Target hat.


Oh man! So I ventured back to H&M around 11:00 this morning, because I needed to return some dresses I'd bought in a mad rush on Thursday that ended up not fitting. I was like "TROLOLO NOBODY ACTUALLY GOES SHOPPING BEFORE NOON ON A SATURDAY~" but I was completely wrong. The entire female population of Portland goes shopping on Saturday morning, and they are all at H&M.

I did end up spending over an hour in the store, wandering back and forth between floors, picking things up, leaving them randomly about after deciding I didn't want them, and generally looking at the same things about ten different times throughout the trip before deciding I didn't want them. (This is how I shop alone, I'm sure most people are gratified to know. I do not shop this way with friends. They would strangle me to death with their own bare hands if I did.) I ended up leaving with only two things, two dresses to be precise. They are amazing. Just you wait.

Then I came home, ate some Lean Cuisine pizza, and watched an episode of The Mighty Boosh. The episode gave me the serious heebie jeebies, and also made me quite tired (I'd been up since 9:00 after all -- ridiculous), so I took a 3-hour nap. I am now still where I was when I woke up from said nap, only I'm in a semi-sitting position, and I'm contemplating walking to the store to get pop and then spending the night catching up on Merlin and possibly making a Netflix account so I can watch Doctor Who streaming on demand. Which I hope is actually streaming on demand, because if not wtf am I on about.

So, overall, INTERESTING DAY. Glad you cared.



Oh, P.S., I've been considering doing a post on body image, confidence, weight loss, and all of that sort of thing (or rather, my personal experience of such things). Would anyone be interested in that? Or is that too serious and boring to read?

I love that toque! Very cute!

And it sounds like you shop exactly how I do!

And I would be very interested in those kind of posts! I have bad body image and confidence and love reading about other people's experiences :)

Heather said...

Hats are a greasy haired girls best friend! I use them all the time to cover my unwashed hair, I'm in the market for some dry shampoo!

I would shop with you if you took that long...I do the same thing! lol I can spend hours in one store going through racks and making multiple trips to the fitting rooms.

Can't wait to see your new dresses and you should definitely do the body image post!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Haha, I totally shop like that -- I take foreeeeeverrrrrr. It makes it hard to shop with other people!

I'd read your body image post!

HollyElise said...

Yup, totally shop the same way when alone. And sometimes when with the right person (aka, not my sis-in-law >.<).

Love the hat and the dress! Also, I'd be into a body image, etc, post. *thumbs up*

Christy said...

I think body is always interesting for people who like fashion. I"m interested in your thoughts.

Also, I'm loving the hat, even if it's there to hide un-washed hair.

Louise said...

Yes, body image post, please! Just don't call me a fatty. Heh.

I really want to see the dresses you picked up at H&M! I am dying to get my booty up there.

I love this blog post idea, for sure, and am relieved to know I am not the only one who wanders around completely kind of la-da-da about making purchasing decisions...

Also, I would be totally into a post on weight loss/body image. Do it upppp.

Mandy said...

i'd love if you did a post on body image! i always love reading people's views on that. :)

Michal said...

You are super adorable, just sayin'.

In other news, I'm all for the body image post, and I totally understand your experience in H&M. That place is either hell or pure bliss depending on the number of inhabitants. I really wanna see your new dresses!!

Joy said...

I shopped exactly like that in Kohl's on Sunday. I had no kids, no husband, NO ONE with me. It was heaven!!

I went to H&M last weekend and it was so busy, I couldn't really look! I need to go back.

Do the body image post! I'm in need of one. I kind of did one last week, but I still have a bad attitude!!

Watched a Doctor Who marathon over the weekend. Never thought I'd love any Dr like I did Tennant. But Matt Smith has really, really pulled me in.

Glad you're back posting!

Um...how funny is it that my word verification is "houtedr"?!!
