I went on a little shopping spree this week and bought a few key items for my work wardrobe. Between being pregnant, being on mat leave and having a home business, there wasn’t much need to buy work clothes. Now that I have entered the corporate world again, I noticed my closet was getting tired and called for a more mature look.
Today’s “proutfit” is a new pale dusty pink accordion skirt from Joe Fresh and a black turtleneck (mine is a basic H&M top from a few years back). I’m wearing thick black nylons and paired it with my basic black Franco Sarto pumps (that I leave at work). Again, I recycled my bib necklace (Expressions by The Bay) because I like it so much 🙂
I went shopping last night in search for a wool winter white skirt… no such luck. I was told that in wasn’t the right season. I highly doubt that these women know anything about fashion let alone style. But that my friend’s is another conversation.
I did manage to find an “out of season” white skirt at Melanie Lyne and I picked up my favourite Jones New York blouse at the Bay. I also found a gorgeous gold bib necklace at the Bay, also on sale! Score for me!
Here are a few terrible pictures of my proutfit!
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, H&M is not only available in Ottawa, but the Oh-so-sad Place d’Orleans carries a wide range of collections including the coveted Plus sizes!
I’ve been shopping H&M for over 11 years now, during my frequent visits to Toronto to see the family. I used to get away with finding plenty of size 16, until they recently pulled it off their shelves. I. Died.
What am I supposed to wear now? Where can I find cute, affordable, fashion forward clothes? Well, thankfully I found Forever 21+ in the meantime, which has an edgier feel, but that is neither here, no there.
All this to say, get your butt to H&M in Orleans and find yourself a sweet outfit that makes you feel good. Warning: not much selection… Sadly 🙁
I find that since they removed size 16, now size 14 is very hard to find. It’s like.. “Just make more people!!”. Take all the leftover size 4 and 6 and make a decent piece of clothing for us XLusive girls!
