H&M Haul

H&M opened its very first store in Ottawa earlier this month, and when I attended the press night, I picked up a few items. I got a lot of great items to add to my Fall wardrobe, and I'm so happy to have an H&M near me!

The first item I picked up was this beautiful deep burgundy-brown cardigan. I love how this cardigan drapes, and it's super cozy. I've worn this already, and I really love it :)

Next I picked up a denim shirt. The fit of this shirt is incredible, it's very flattering! This is my first time owning a denim shirt, and I need to figure out a way to style it well. I also picked up a pair of burgundy cords to pair with this shirt, but unfortunately they didn't fit, so I have to take them back!

Next I stumbled upon this gorgeous navy blouse! It's hard to see in the photo, but there's actually a panel draping off the right side. I love the three quarter sleeves, and navy is one of my favourite colours to wear in Fall and Winter.

I picked up a polka dotted black and cream button up cardigan. I realized that I didn't have a lot of polka dots in my wardrobe, and that that needed to change immediately! I haven't worn this yet, but I'm thinking that it's going to be a fun addition to a tshirt and jeans kind of outfit :)

I also found this beautiful almost-skater skirt on one of the walls in the store, and I knew that I just had to try it on. This skirt fits really nicely, and I've already worn it paired with black tights, a black tee, and the burgundy cardigan that I showed earlier in this haul. 

And finally I added a pop of colour to my wardrobe! This striped, colourful sweater is fairly oversized (I picked up an XS, and it's still quite roomy), so it's great to wear over leggings. I love the colour combination in this sweater, I never would have thought to pair all of these shades together, but I love it!

I also picked up two cardigans for my boyfriend, but he's already worn both, so unfortunately I can't share photos of those! If you're in the Ottawa area, have you checked out the new H&M in Bayshore yet? What items have you been adding to your Fall wardrobe? :)
