Easy Pleats + Pottery Barn Giveaway











Sweater: H&M (similar save); Skirt: rental c/o Le Tote (similar); Heels: c/o Lulu*s

My cropped white cable knit sweater is back! Hallelujah seasonal wardrobe, welcome back from your green closet bin. This sweater is quite possibly one of my best H&M "investments." I think it was maybe $25 and has been worn countless times over the fall and winter.

I stopped by H&M today to buy some new clothes for Ben as they're having an awesome sale on guy's staples like classic lightweight button downs, soft tees and long-sleeves for layering, and sweaters. I am always amazed at how easy it is to shop for men. Sizes are small, medium, large, and extra large and if you know his size (25% chance you're right), it's going to fit, look great, and voila! For pants, if you get the length and width correct, you're set. No special cuts, no weird looking upper-hip-area if the brand is wrong, no butt-not-fitting issues. How?! It's impossible and I hate it when I am watching guys shop, but love it when I am shopping for guys.

You all know that I have the big Nordstrom giveaway going on, but I am also co-hosting a giveaway at Jade and Oak to offer $150 to Pottery Barn and ad space to Bailey Dailies. Enter via the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

  8. You're right. Guys have it easy. It's not fair. At least you got some good stuff, though, and didn't have to have your guy tagging along. Mine is the actual worst shopper. Maybe that's why they make it so easy for guys to shop? So we don't have to bring them. It's like they're giving a little back, for our ENTIRE day's worth of having to try stuff on, haha!

  15. Love the color cobalt on you Kelsey! I completely agree with you, I sort of love shopping for boys, cause it is super easy. Now, only if the Boy would let me pick out stuff for him, no worries I add my favorites to his wardrobe on any and every special occasion. :p
