Off the Rack: H&M Summer/Swim 2012

Yesterday I visited the H&M showroom in New York to check out the latest summer and swim collections which are in stores now. The benefit of visiting the showroom is that I have permission to photograph anything I please, and I am nothing if not thorough, combing through each rack, piece by piece, taking my sweet time, savoring the fabrics, textures, colors and well, you get the picture. All you need to know is that H&M has everything you need for a stylish summer, starting with this Memorial Day holiday weekend (do you have your outfits planned yet? I don't!). We're talking dayglow swimwear, tropical print coverups, embellished denim cut-offs, wedge sandals, floppy hats, clear plastic totes - basically everything to take you from a BBQ to the beach without missing a fashionable step. Hope you find some inspiration here, and if you'd like to see more of my photos from my trip to the H&M showroom, check out this album on my Facebook page.

As always, let me know which items are your favorite in the comments, H&M is listening too...

That white dress with the gold beaded collar and those palm-tree print wedges are DIVINE. Oh, I need to earn some money so I can buy them. Right now.

I have the flat sandals from the first jump photo in black. They're great -- I took them on a vacation and was able to wander the cities all day in comfort, without breaking them in!
