H&M New Arrivals Head to Toe

Ventured to H&M to check out their swim collection even though I KNEW I would not be buying anything at this point in the pregnancy.  I was just curious, y'know?  :)  I ended up forgetting about the swimwear when I spied a striped jersey dress with rope detailing.  Heading deeper in the store, I also found a beautiful cognac tassel belt and turquoise necklace (I've been lusting after a turquoise necklace ever since seeing Cee's here).  All at fabulously inexpensive prices so I snagged them all and posted in hopes this will help someone else.

H&M Yellow Striped Nautical Dress, Sm, $9.95 (w/ pic of tag above)
H&M Cognac Tassel Belt, One Sz, $12.95
H&M Turquoise Statement Necklace, $12.95

 
Here's a better view of the necklace and rope/grommet detail of the dress as well as what a preggy looks like in it.  :)  The only thing that seems odd about the dress is the length.  It's not really long enough to be a maxi but is way longer than knee/above the knee dresses.  I'll probably either wear it with flats or hem it after the pregnancy.

  4. That H&M necklace is an exact dupe for the J.Crew bubble necklace from a few years ago!!! OMG, I've been looking for that FOREVER, but there's so many fakes on eBay that I never took the chance. Did the necklace come in any other colors??? I didn't see it when I went to my store today :( Should have looked closer.

    This entire outfit looks so good on you! Can't go wrong with the stripes and rope detailing.

    Happy early Mother's day to you, SPG! I hope your family has something great planned :)

  9. Cute outfit, it looks so summery, and what a steal!! it all goes so well together. Cee's post was very inspiring too, i've been on the lookout for similar (turquoise) jewelery too, and amarita singh is going to hurt my wallet too much! Glad you posted about this necklace, I'm definitely gonna check out my local h&m this week!

    Happy Mother's Day!

  14. Carrie - I know, right? I love H&M - they always have the cutest things and normally at extremely good prices. Thank you!

    Michelle - Thanks! I am totally in love with this necklace now and I've always been a big stripes fan, so this was perfect!

    Mimi - Thanks! You should definitely go check it out!

    Cee - I just looked up the bubble necklace and it is soooooo pretty! I'm eyeing the coral version on eBay thought I definitely agree that most likely it's a replica and not the real version. Did you wind up going back to H&M? Thank you for the Happy Mother's Day! We had a great time at the zoo and park with our little guy :)

    Gabbie - I do love yellow for summer, don't you? Thanks for dropping by and commenting!

    Elaine - Thanks! I so love H&M - it's great that it's also available internationally unlike LOFT ;)

    Lisa - LOL! Great minds DO think alike! :D

    Francesca - I live for a great deal!! :) Thanks for commenting!

    Lor - Thank you! It is definitely a great way to get some turquoise drama without dropping a lot of dough :) Thanks for the Mother's Day wishes!

    theeclecticlife - Oh yay! H&M is a GREAT store filled with super cute, trendy items for good prices - you'll love it :)

    Aki - Thanks! Did you find anything at H&M?

    Aubrey - Oh wow! It matches that bikini to a tee! Maybe go to the store and try it on? It's a nice, fun piece to have :)
