H&M Jacket for Summer

Small splurges. They happen. Friends should never be late to meet you for coffee, because then you wouldn’t wander into the nearby store to pass the time. This jacket wasn’t on my “need to buy” list, however it caught my eye at H&M a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s become a wardrobe staple. It’s simple, comfortable, my current favorite color, and it’s both cool enough for summer weather and warm enough for the office AC. Have I sold you on it yet? If not, also note that it works with pencil skirts and pants.

Wait, pants? Lindsay and Meredith wear pants to work? We realized while photographing this outfit that after two months of blogging, all of our office outfits have featured either dresses or skirts. It’s time for someone to wear the pants, and Meredith was up to the challenge.

The ribbon tie adds is the subtle feminine touch that really makes the jacket. Plus, like our favorite wrap dress, the tie brings definition to the waist – a flattering look for all women!

Ahhhh, if only all days were as calm and sunny as this one.

Meredith’s Look:

Jacket: H&M, $40

Shirt: H&M, $15

Pants: Banana Republic, $45

Bag: ModCloth, $60

Shoes: Steve Madden, $60

  1. Very cute! I’m such a sucker for little jackets.

  2. What a cool jacket! It’s such an interesting look (and while I know this isn’t the point, it also looks way more expensive than H&M)

  3. Very nice! I like the fit…loose without looking sloppy.
