Winter Blues

A note on sizing for the H&M ankle boots I'm wearing today. I bought it online and went with my usual sz 6. I received a 37 in the mail when I was expecting a 36. I'm guessing sz 5.5 is the one that translates to a 36. It worked out for me because the 37 is perfect with socks. I don't think H&M carries half sizing, so 36 probably would have been a bit too tight. Long story short, I'd say the boots run half size small, or size up to wear with socks.
striped shirt, fur vest, brown suede booties
sunglasses: Walmart aviator (similar)
lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in blushing mauve (sold here)
necklace: Forever 21 (similar)
fur vest: Zara Girl (this season's sold here)

  1. Great boots! You always know how to find the gems at H&M - my head always kind of spins when I go there, I don't know where to start!

    1. Haha, it's just luck. I find browsing online much less overwhelming... though stores usually carry more inventory, but I'll take the tradeoff :)

  2. Love this look! The fur vest is perfect!

  3. A winter vest in on my shopping I have some inspiration. :) The vest looks nice with the collar popped over it.

    Love the torn off tape look in the new header, btw. :)

    1. Haha I only popped the collar because the shirt was lying funny otherwise. Completely unintentional but I'll take it!

      PS - Gotta give Madewell all the credit for the tape idea and images :)

  4. What size is the vest?

    1. Hey, I'm wearing sz L in the fur vest. I have a photo of the vest in a different print from when I bought mine comparing the fit of L vs XL. Sz L fits me snugly when zipped, so I usually leave it unzipped. I love Zara and their free shipping and returns, so definitely give a few sizes a try if you can! Hope that helps and let me know if you have other questions!


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
