Hits & Misses

Hey everyone! I am back with another post of things that I bought lately that I either loved or hated. With fall now finally here the layers can finally start arriving - although tell that to Northern California who is still having triple digit weather, woof!

Joe's Skinny Ankle Jeans
These are actually a repeat purchase for me. I LOVE these jeans. I scored a pair at Marshall's one day here in San Francisco and couldn't believe how great the fit was and how comfortable they were. Well one day I was being super lazy and I was pulling my pants off via my feet. You can imagine how pissed I was when I heard a very audible RIIIIIIP. I had put my foot right through the hole and created one giant one! Long story short I love them so much I was able to track down another pair. Right now it looks like only size 32 is left but bookmark the page and see if they get more. Worth the wait!

Plaid Boyfriend Shirt
Okay I already know exactly what you're thinking. Abercrombie & Fitch...really Laura? Well I have to say I saw one of my friends wearing the green and blue version of this shirt and I loved it. I mean she could also wear a paper bag and look hot but I digress. I texted her later asking where her shirt was from - totally thinking it was Joie or some other expensive brand. We had a good laugh that it was from A&F but then I totally ordered it. I really like it! It's super soft and I don't feel like it's too small across my chest (which is often the case). When I bought it the whole store was on promo 40% off so try and wait for another sale.

Patterned Non Closure Cardigan
Again with the Abercrombie! I only ordered this because if you spent over $75 it was free shipping. I figured if it was hideous I could just return in store. Verdict is out on this so far. It's incredible comfortable and cozy. But I feel like the opening can add heft to my frame so we will see if I keep it or it goes back. Again purchased at 40% off.

Fleece Bow Pocket Faux Fur Hood (Baby Girls)
I got this for P for the fall and winter and I was pretty excited about it. However when I received it I was just like ehhh. It's thinner than I thought it would be and the faux fur in the hood just looks cheap. This is being returned.

H&M Padded Jacket (Baby Girl's)

The reason I am not keeping the other jacket is because I picked this one up at our local H&M. Only $19.99 fully lined with fleece and way warmer. Plus you all know I can't resist a floral pattern.

Now I just need the weather to cooperate so I can start wearing this stuff!

  4. I need those jeans and that puffy jacket -- oh my... makes me happy I have a girl!

  6. Those little girl clothes... swoon! Love the plaid shirt from A&F!

  7. Ok both pieces from A&F are super cute! Love that open cardigan!

  8. Love that floral jacket! What size did you get for P? My daughter is one too (on Saturday!!!), but I know sometimes h & m runs way big!

    1. Happy Birthday to your little! You didn't have an e-mail address tied to your account so I hope you check back here! I purchased 18-24 months but it's pretty large on her (sleeve are long) but I felt the overall sizing was better. However I may exchange it for the 12-18 month size so she can wear it this winter.

  9. I can't believe that top and sweater are Abercrombie! Such great finds!

  10. That jacket is darling from H&M and I cannot believe that that plaid shirt is from Abercrombie & Fitch. Last time I was in there my mother embarrassingly complained about the music being too loud. Ahh highschool problems!

  11. Love the look of those jeans. And I definitely need some plaid in my life... for fall and Austin!

  12. I love every.single.thing in this post! Especially that plaid shirt. I hate how most of them are too small across the chest, I don't need those buttons popping open! And that floral jacket is amaaazing!
