Hey everyone!  I purchased these new faux-suede d'orsay flats from H&M the week before last and am loving them!  Unfortunately they are not showing up online, but you can probably find them in-store at your local H&M - they were only $30 (the pair I linked to are super similar but $100).  The shape is super flattering, I am already coveting a pair in black leather.  I tried on a few pairs last year, when the style was becoming really popular, but found that a lot of them dig into the side of your foot - ouch!  These ones don't, thankfully, however I probably could have gone up a half size as I do have one or two blisters ...

This dress is also an old fave from H&M and I have seen them bring it back in other colours (khaki, blush) so it is a popular style and will likely come back in black too.  Again, not online but I've linked to one that looks comparable.  I think this one needs to retire soon.  It's 100% cotton, which means it's beginning to fade, and the pleats on the bodice just don't lay flat like they used to (probably because I hate ironing).  In the past few years I've learned that cotton/jersey dresses just don't stand up like other blends and have tried to avoid buying them unless they are super cheap and for casual wear.  Polyester or a polyester blend, despite it's reputation for being a cheap material, in my experience wears much better with time.

The weather in Vancouver has been really lovely lately, it has been quite a beautiful Spring so far.  I love that I can bare-leg all my skirts and dresses, and I know sandal weather is right around the corner!
