have you heard?

Last week, something very exciting happened.

Something that I’ve been waiting for since I studied abroad (in Florence, Italy) TEN years ago.

Last week, H&M launched online shopping in the United States.

I mean. Finally! Dreams do come true, people.

The highlights include clothes (of course, BUT they now have plus sizes), HOME (a newbie!), and styling guides.

Happy hunting at H&M, no matter where you live! xoxo

Seconds after discovering Joe Fresh for kids at JCPenney, I was hoping it existed for adults as well.

It does.

Here are a few of my favorites for the ladies…

All, except for the color-blocked one, are under $30. That green tunic will find it’s way into my closet.

Have you worn Joe Fresh?

Happy hunting! xoxo

I am definitely might be considered picky about what my daughter wears. It can be a real challenge to find trendy kids clothing at an affordable price. It has to be affordable, they stain it or out grow it.

Do you shop in department stores? I typically try to avoid all department stores, with one exception. Nordstrom. (I swoon a lot, but buy very little.)

The other day, a JCPenney ad showed up in our mailbox. I can’t remember the last time I walked in that store. Obviously, an ad that cute intrigued me to check them out. Now, I’m in love with their Joe Fresh line. Most shirts and pants are under $20.

Don’t worry, they have stuff for women too. (Post coming soon!) Men, so sorry. Nothing from this line in the jcp stores for you. If you’re in the northeast sometime, look up the stand-alone Joe Fresh stores. You can view, but not purchase, online.

Here are several of my favorites for girls…

Do your kids own any Joe Fresh clothes? What do you think?

Happy hunting! xoxo

whoa, wait. walmart? // activewear

From a very young age, we learned the value of hunting for good deals on cute things.

I should preface this post by saying I own a (yes, ONE) pair of Lululemon yoga pants.  I love them.  They feel like heaven.  They actually make me happy. I feel like I look like a million damn dollars in them.  Having said that, I can’t afford to keep buying them.  I don’t have many friends who can afford that amazingly-wonderful luxury.

What I can easily justify is spending $11-$12 on Danskin Now yoga pants. Thank you, Walmart.  I own both of these pairs of pants and love wearing them to yoga.  I don’t own this top, but how cute is it? For $5.96 I might need to pick it up soon…

Happy hunting at Walmart. xoxo.
