H&M Haul + 20% off entire purchase printable coupon

Click here to print out the H&M coupon, good 'til June 6th, 2010 in U.S. stores only. 20% off your entire purchase is pretty awesome for a place like H&M! Even those who frown down on the quality can probably find some good basics during this sale - tees, tanks, socks, etc.
This is what I picked up today (sorry for the terrible iphone pics! snapped these hastily at work in dim lighting):

1. H&M "Trend" peachy-cream bodysuit with mesh panels, sz 2, $24.95 before discounts. The color is so much prettier in better lighting, I promise. I have absolutely no idea how to wear this, and will probably return it because it's too trendy for me. Suggestions?

2. Petite-friendly bangle bracelets! $7.95 per bunch. When I slipped these on I couldn't believe that they stayed on my wrists. Only after purchasing did I notice they were size XS/S - good thing I didn't grab a M or L! They measure about 2.5 inches in diameter and are "hand made" - not sure where, though. Each set comes with three colored bangles, 1 wood one, and 1 thin gold bangle.

3. More accessories - Divided bold summer earrings in coral, $5.95 and really pretty linen scarf with navy background and cream and gray flowers, $9.95.

4. Divided white cuffed trouser shorts, sz 2, $17.95 - my fave purchase of the bunch. Per my last post - I love trouser shorts for summer! These also came in black, which are perfect year-round, but my size was sold out:
I also picked up one last thing for a secret DIY project, lol. To be showcased next week only if successful. Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!

  1. Bodysuit - maybe with jeans, then layer a cute jacket over it, or one of those asymmetrical flowy vest things. Then a multi-strand necklace.:)

  2. I really like the look of those shorts in your last post... with this coupon I just might make a trip to H&M this weekend. Any specific basic tees or tanks you recommend?

  5. Oh! Thanks for posting the coupon. I'm in need of a few basics and H&M is a great place to buy them! Those bracelets are supercute! I'm def looking for them! I'm not a huge fan of the bodysuit though...

  6. ^lol! Wish you couldve seen the look of disgust on my bf's face when I pulled it out. Tisha - thanks for the tip! That sounds amazing...wish i had a flowy vest or appropriate necklaces.

    Petitexxs- I like a certain tee/tank line of theirs which is really smooth cotton that's cool to the touch. It's in the womens line, usually next to work clothes or "h & m trend." So hard to describe though! I'm wearing one of the tees in my "pretty in pewter" lookbook.

  7. I am going to be soooo incredibly crazy happy when they finally open up H&M in Dallas (IF they ever will...) Until then, all my H&M shopping sprees must unfortunately go on hold unless I visit my sis in LA!

    I think the only 'equivalent' of H&M here is Zara...but they usually run too big for me! (I remember you did post about how Zara had a kids line as well...) I love finding a deal and H&M's style is much more 'grown up' than Forever21 as far as getting bang for your buck goes. *sigh*

    Love your finds though! I really love those white trouser shorts. Very clean and very "summer"! I think you've given me the motivation (especially since your last post) to toss my Abercrombie micro-mini shorts and start growing up for once... ;) I think my boyfriend will thank you too!

  9. Thanks for the coupon PAG! I am totally going to return all the things I bought last weekend and use this coupon to buy it back! LOL

    I tried on that body suit and the black shorts (not together) and neither worked for me. I looked really funny...LOL

  11. I purchased a black bodysuit from American Apparel and the only way I like to wear it is pairing it with those stretchy high-waist bandage skirts. I love that H&M makes bangles in various sizes because I have really tiny wrists. I'm loving that gorgeous scarf.

  16. Aww wish they did this internationally! Great bodysuit, you can easily wear it under skirts/shorts :)

  17. I wish the same as Jess (above) since we're Canadians and don't get to enjoy these sales/discounts! but I love the peach-cream bodysuit. It'd definitely look cute with a high waisted skirt in a dark colour, denim shorts, high waisted dress shorts; the neutral colour of the bodysuit itself with the paneling makes it a great basic which you can layer under a lot of things. but go with your instinct and your wardrobe. if you find that it won't work with most of your wardrobe then it won't get much wear and will go to waste. I think it'd look pretty on you though. I LOVE that they make XS/S bangles! Finally bangles that fit on tiny Asian wrists! I love the ones you bought, they'll be perfect for the summer and will go with so many outfits. As will that navy/cream floral scarf that you got. I love the colour of those coral/amber earrings, very striking. And those white cuffed shorts are a perfect summer staple. Great finds!

  18. Hi, I just found your blog - i love it!!!!I'm not Asian, I'm white British just over 5 foot and wear 8/10 British dress size. But I also have a small frame, so tiny feet and wrists. I'm in the UK but we too have H&M and those bangles!!! I cannot tell you the joy of finally finding a shop that sells bangles in small sizes!!! I got a mass of tiny gold bangles in XS that look fab - tiny wrists have meant I have never been able to fulfill my love of bangles until now! Great blog I will be following with eagerness from now on!!! x x x
