This holiday season, I've teamed up with H&M to showcase some of their amazing holiday fashions and gift ideas. First, they challenged me to put together a holiday party look under $100. I knew right away that I wanted to recreate this Taylor Swift look which I had featured previously in a Dress by Number post, so I headed to my nearest H&M store to see what I could find. It was ridiculously easy to get a complete head-to-toe look under $100 that mirrored Taylor's going-out outfit: Black knit sweater (similar), faux leather circle skirt (similar), lacy tights (similar), Chelsea boots, and a structured cross-body bag (similar)! I had money left over to buy this chevron iPhone case (your phone's gotta get dressed up, too). Yes, it's an all black look, but since I don't ordinarily wear that much black, it's a sophisticated change of pace for me. Plus I can remix the pieces in so many ways. I like that it's comfortable, too, because all my holiday parties will involve my toddler as well!
Tip: Through H&M's garment recycling program, I donated a plastic shopping bag of old clothes at checkout and received a 15% off coupon which I applied towards the entire purchase.
While I was at my store, I snapped photos of more of the holiday party looks I'm loving. They have much more than black - gorgeous reds, lots of sparkle, white and gold round out the holiday color palette! Keep scrolling to see the in-store images.
I also put together some of my favorite gift ideas under $9.95. H&M has something for everyone, including yourself! This is the first year that I'll be shopping for friends we've met in all our playgroups, too. Fellow moms will appreciate makeup and jewelry, and fun fashion accessories for the kiddos!
