A Pink OOTD for $40 – H&M

February 11, 2021

When I first started my Instagram, which then led me to create a blog, I primarily focused on inexpensive outfits. I naturally don’t spend a lot of money on clothing and prefer to invest in shoes and handbags. I have always been a HUGE thrifter/vintage shopper, which equals quality, longevity, and sometimes less expensive than “regular” shopping!

I say all of that to tell you that this year I am bringing those inexpensive outfits BACK. When I had the idea to bring this back, my hold up was that I shop at many vintage shops and thrift stores, so I had to find a linkable solution so that you could shop too. I typically shop online at Abercrombie, H&M, Mango, Zara, Revolve, Gap, and so on, which gives me the longevity + quality feel like thrifting does. All of those shops have pieces at reasonable price points, so I’m excited to share items I love from those places with you more.

Today’s outfit is a beautiful monochromatic pink number from H&M. My earrings are to me, a little pricey at $100, but well worth the splurge if you wanted to treat yourself for Valentine’s day or just because 🙂

Enjoy! x
