My Weekend Outfits and New Designer Collaboration with H&M!

October 24, 2011

Good evening dolls! I wanted to post a weekend recap tonight and show y’all what I wore! I have really enjoyed hanging out with some great friends the past few weekends. This weekend I was back in Knoxville to visit my college roomie (who has moved back to Knoxville from ATL)!! We had a lot of fun Saturday afternoon cooking some yummy treats (more like me being an assistant cook….I’m not a cooking diva YET but working on that haha) and then watching the UT vs. Bama game at some friends’ house! Definitely a fun afternoon & evening!!!

So to drive up to Knoxville and hang out Saturday afternoon I wore a sweater I recently purchased at Forever 21 for $19.80. I really love an oversized short-sleeve sweater for fall & winter because they are GREAT for layering! For instance, since it wasn’t super chilly Saturday (only in the 60’s) I wore the sweater with just a tank top underneath. BUT when it gets to be super cold I plan on layering a long-sleeve shirt underneath. I love purchasing versatile pieces that can be worn with many different things…it’s my kind of wardrobe recycling, haha!

Sweater: F21
Layering tank top: Gap
Jeans: Nine West
Boots: UGG (find them here UGG Classic Cardy Boots )

Saturday night = wardrobe change to watch the game! Since we weren’t actually GOING to the UT game and just watching it at a friends’ house, I thought it would be acceptable not to wear orange (as long as I didn’t wear Alabama colors like I wore LSU colors last weekend! lol). I bought this black & grey leopard print shirt at F21 when Stacey came to visit a couple of weeks ago. Once again it was sheer so I had to layer it over a black tube top…and I also decided to wear one of my favorite accessories right now: my black belt from NY & Company!

Stacey & me in our OOTN for watching the UT game:
Top: F21
Jeans: H&M
Belt: NY & Co
High-heeled boots: Nickels Soft

Sweater: Target
Skirt: F21
Boots: Rocketdog
Tights: H&M

To go along with the post I did the other day on some of my favorite fall handbags, another bag I love is one Stacey bought recently at TJ Maxx for $29.95 by Miztique. It’s the perfect fall oversized handbag!

I also wanted to post about an exciting new collaboration coming to H&M on November 19th! Like I mentioned in my very first blog post (read here: First Blog Post) I LOVE when high-end designers bring their clothing lines that normally sell for thousands to reasonably-priced clothing stores like Target and H&M. So the newest collaboration that I’m SO excited about is….Versace parterning with H&M!!! As stated in the press release on H&M’s website (find it here: Versace for H&M Press Release), “Versace is a brand steeped in glamour to its very core.” I can only hope I will be able to buy just one item from this awesome collection…but if it’s anything like the craze Missoni for Target created, I predict nothing will be left by the time I can make it to Atlanta!!!

Polyvore, the website I use to create all of my outfit sets I post on the blog, has a contest right now to use pieces from the Versace for H&M collection to create your OWN outfits with the theme of “your very best glam look for the party season.” So of course I had to enter…10 winners are chosen every day to win a scarf from the collection & a grand prize winner will receive 3 outfits. I don’t expect to win but thought I would at least show y’all my entry! The theme is “Silver and Gold Versace for H&M Glamour.”
