Olive Shift

Dress: H&M, Shoes: c/o Zara, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses: c/o Polette, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Stella & Dot and c/o Stowe Street

If you follow me on twitter (ahem, and if you don't, you can click here to follow along!) you might have seen my tweet about scoring big time at H&M's extra 50% off sale this weekend! I scooped up a blazer, trousers, and this little shift dress all for $39! This dress was $10, and it was something I had been eyeing for a while. I've learned that when there is a lot of the same item left on the sale rack, chances are it's going to fit me. A lot of H&M items don't fit me properly, but the things that don't seem to fit anyone else fit me quite well. Ha! I'm not sure what this says about my body, but either way, I walked away with a cute $10 shift dress, so I really can't complain. I love the faux leather shoulder details! 

I'm back at the office after a lovely long weekend that went much too quickly and involved more beer & wine than I anticipated. ;) It was still fairly low key and was mostly spent with the fella and some out of town friends, but I spent the rainy holiday Monday cuddled indoors reading blogs, making chili and catching up on episodes of Veep! 

Happy Tuesday!

  12. Great dress, especially for $10! I love the detail on the shoulder. I bet you'll wear it with tights in the fall too (at least I would)!

  16. Kate, you look beautiful! And what an amazing find! I usually find H&M fits me the best (maybe because I am more petite than the average woman?) but I've noticed that their jean sizes have gotten smaller - which is disappointing because they fit me perfectly (its hard for me, and I think every girl, to find jeans that fit well, and when you do you stick with it!) but now they fit kind of weird! It still won't sway me from shopping there though. And with deals like yours?! I think a trip to H&M for me is in order .. Have a great day back at work! xo

  17. Nothing like a great shift dress! Loving that color on you too, Kate! Olive is so great on blondes :)

  18. Kate, I've really been loving all of the shift dresses on you lately. They're so flattering and make your legs look miles long! I really wish there was an h&m close to me, I never catch the sales when I make the 2 hour trip to one of Florida's bigger malls. Boo!

  20. Seriously love that dress, it looks great on you! Also, I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who has had this experience at H&M! I always used to joke that they must have a mannequin of my body that they shape their "reject" dresses on, because they fit me SO PERFECTLY! ahaha... xo

  23. Wow, sounds like you seriously scored at H&M. I too have a hard time finding pieces that fit me there, but I love your logic behind the fit. The dress is great and fits you well.

    Long weekends are never quite long enough, but hey, tomorrow's already Wednesday!

  27. I noticed the same thing lately! Especially in the sale section. All they have left in Chicago is 8's and lucky me, thats my size! Thank you very much H&M, i will take that maxi dress for $15 and that skirt for $7. Glad I'm not the only one. Wonder what is up with that! Are you finding 8's too?
