My H&M interest list and a small haul

Since I have this quiet wish to visit our capital town Tallinn before Christmas strikes and year 2013 closes and we DO have entirely three H&M stores there only since this year I thought putting together a small wishinterest list would be a lovely idea. So I explored the whole wide page TWICE... and guess what? I came across only five likeable things. Which is great actually. Great for my wallet and great for my wardrobe (=great for ME too, right?). By the way, since the ladies' section didn't produce much I entered the almighty men's and kids' sections and found two very different but especially awesome sweatshirts. And here they all come:


1 natural white knitted hat (link) €9.95
2 kids' extra girly light pink sweatshirt (link) €9.95
3 pink jersey pyjamas (link) €19.95
4 men's P.U.G.S sweatshirt (link) €19.95
5 coral knitted cardigan (link) €29.95

Dear readers, what is your favourite item from my interest list? Which one should I definitely get?

Anyway, today's other subject to share is one particularly cheap Seppälä and two of my favourite thrift stores' haul. So, in October, more than a month ago I snatched this lightsome camo jacket and a national blue-black-white* scarf from Seppälä (*a fact for my foreign readers - those are the beautful colours of our national flag). I found the jacket from kids' section (again!) for 24.95 3, the scarf was merely 12.95 1 and I saved almost €34 on the whole. Now that's what I call a great sale success! ;)


When it comes to my thrift shop findings I'm going to show three today and leave one particularly precious and spicy bargain for the next post. And believe me, it's absolutely worth the wait! But now about the other three. This partially see-through maxi skirt (€2.5) is my favourite maxi skirt. It's so easy and flowy and I love it! Slightly too sheer for autumn and winter though so I'm already waiting for spring :)


My leggings (€2) are originally from H&M and they have those cool mesh-like details in front. Again something lighter for warmer days. And last but clearly not least I got this classic prof line coat (€3.2) with shiny golden buttons. I discovered it when its price was 8 or 6 euros and thought I should wait and see. Good things indeed come to those who wait then. It's an old cliche but a valid one. Oh and why do I always come across the best springlike pieces when proper spring's at least at a distance of five cold full-length months? That's just mean.


Anyhow, I hope our somewhat crappy mirror isn't too crappy for you and I promise I will clean it (eventually :D). Enjoy, sweeties, and let me know what you think. See you!

  1. Love the mirror images ;D. Often mirror images do not work, but yours are stylish. The black overcoat is lovely.
    You always find the best spring clothes on winter, it happens everytime ;).

    I saw the pugs sweater in our local H&M, thought that it's pretty cool :D

  2. I always go through the kids' and men's section too! You get so many great stuff there and I can always find something that fits me. That pug sweater's pretty cool.:D And you're really a pro at thrifting, babe!! I can't believe how many great stuff you found - again. I'm really jealous because of those mesh H&M leggings actually.:D

    Hope you're having a extra fun and/or extra relaxing weekend, dear.;)

  3. I love the knitted hat! You should definitely get that one! I also love your thrift finds, isn't thrift shopping just the best? That scarf is adorable, and I love that skirt. The mirror photo with the skirt is so beautiful and timeless! I never thought to check the kids section for clothes but I suppose they could have some cute things!

  4. You look so elegant and chic on the last photo! I like your selfies, especially the first black and white:) And your H&M picks are bright, cute and versatile. I'm lately very into the sweatshirts so I definitely love the one you've picked

  6. The leggings are so interesting. I am taken by your H&M list, #2 particularly is my favourite. Mirror shots aren't my fave, but somehow you manage to make it look so chic, and I love that coat style on you! x/Madison

  7. I love the knitted hat && the pajamas that are on your wish list!! H&M is very hit and miss for me. Sometimes they have a ton of stuff that I love && other times they have nothing. You picked some cute stuff though!!

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.

  9. sinu wishlistist võiks vabalt minu omasse kuuluda ka see tutimüts, see on täitsa my cup of tea! mu enda praegune lemmikmüts on ka eelmisel talvel just H&M'st pärit, natukene beežikam ja lõngatutiga, aga väga nunnu, mugav ja soe ka! :) ega peakski tegelt isegi H&M'i v kuskile uue jahile minema, et ma kogu aeg üht ja sama mütsi ei kannaks

    1. just sellepärast tolle mütsi oma nimekirja lisasingi, et muidu tuleb kogu aeg ühe ja sama (ja vana!!!) mütsiga käia ja see pole kuigi ahvatlevalt kõlav variant.

  18. Dirty mirror or no dirty mirror - and lets be fair, we all have at least one of them at home - I am just in love with the pieces you're showing off in this post! First of all, that midi length skirt - I've been looking for perfect midi skirts in black, white and gray this season but so far everything is just slightly too long and not quite perfect. Unlike yours, which looks like it was made for you! And that coat... you simply can't go wrong with classic black and, unbelievably, a good black coat has been missing from my wardrobe for a long time. I'll be fixing that this season for sure!
    xox,

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xo

  26. You can really get amazing pieces for that money, I am always amazed! Well done! And always looking so stylish! I loved the leggings! And the pictures with the dress-like-coat, really loved it! The mirror pictures are, in fact, very very cool, I like them! The favorite pieces from H & M are the number 2 "extremely" girlie sweatshirt - I loved it! And that sweet cardigan! It took me sometimes to visit your blog and others as well, or even mine, because last week, when coming back from Paris, I got stopped at an airport. for having "too many stamps" in the passport. I think they thought I was a drug dealer, I suppose. But I am so clean and naive, they picked the wrong person, but first interrogated me for a long time and I had to share details of my life that I didn't want to. So it took me some days trying to be in peace again, but I will write a formal letter complaining because of the treatment. Now I am fine again! And one more thing: you told me you are not good with eyeliners, but you don't need makeup, that's it! You are naturally beautiful! But look, if you want to try that pen, it makes everything much easier! denisesplanet com

  31. Haha, I suppose it is kind of a blessing to not find a ton of things you want to buy. Your finds are totally fabulous though! What a cool scarf and good idea to shop in the kid's section for that jacket. I always go there for my running shorts since they're half as cheap! And ahh, don't you hate it how you find the best summery items in winter? But I guess the price makes up for it. What smashing deals you've found--you're such a pro at bargains. I love those turquoise heels and the black maxi skirt!

    Have a beautiful weekend!
