sweater, bracelets and ring - H&M    jeans - Sirens    shoes - Aldo   cross necklace - Tonight In Paris     hat -LOST

Do you think it's a sign when you know you're not supposed to spend anymore money on clothing for the month because you're already in the "budget hole" but you go into a store anyway because well, it's calling your name and when you're at the counter to make your purchase you realize OMG you left your wallet in the car and you never do that??? I think I have very good intuition (I actually think I'm kind of psychic - that's a whole other post though) and one might say I would definitely take this $$$ituation as a sign to leave the store calmly without looking back but did I mention there was a huge poster of Supermodel Daria Werbowy wearing the sweater above and she was chanting my name? And I was in H & M, my all-time favorite clothing store? Conundrum! I took THAT as a sign, went back to my car, retrieved my wallet, went back into my favorite store and took this baby home. (Thanks Daria!) Oh well, it was only $19.99 so I didn't feel too bad. Oh, and yes, it really is cold enough to be wearing a toque in September.


Yay to tomorrow being Friday!

You are so adorable, Marie! I love this look. I wish it was cold enough in Tennessee to wear an outfit like this!

Great look, love the bracelet & ring pairings!

Kara said...

I love this sweater!!! First thing I hoped for when I saw it was "please let it be H&M"..and it is! Im taking THAT as a sign that I need to go to the mall today...lol thanks Marie! You look great!! :)

Kristy said...

You go, girl! When a girl wants, a girl gets!;) I'm glad you purchased that sweater because it is AMAZING. You look so relaxed yet SO CHIC! The black beanie is just like a cherry on top ;)

Daria's probably made me do a lot of things. I have a love/hate relationship with shop display windows and/or postes. Love because I've gotten a lot of great pieces simply from this wonderful form of advertising...hate because of the cash dollars out the window.

I'm glad you went back and got it! I love your addition of the cross necklace, and tell me about it about the hat. I've gotta dig up my winter hats soon...I was hoping I could have waited until I don't know--WINTER--but nope, no such luck.

Take care!

Thanks to Daria, because that sweater is amazing!! Looks so great on you, and for $19.99? Buying it isn't even a question!

$20 for an adorable sweater...oh lady that is NUTHIN! and it looks FABOO on you!

ps. are those high heeled boots i see on you? love it!

Marie a la Mode said...

bananas: No, they're not boots, they're opened toed heels with a back strap, I'm just wearing socks underneath so they kinda look like boots.

Kristin said...

Clearly you're having the kinda weather I WISH we had here right now. Le sigh. You look fabulous! Can't wait to bust out my hats when it cools down!

shari @ little blue deer said...

You look gorgeous, so chic! I have that same problem, just bought some stuff I REALLY didn't need! I wish it was cold here, it is 89 degrees F! Oh, and Marie, I am impressed that as a Canadian you even know who Mary Matalin and James Carville ARE, a lot of Americans don't even know! LOL! XX!

Closet Fashionista said...

Haha, I know exactly what you mean! But that sweater is awesome! :D
And yea...they're probably real leather :/

Love this causal look, love the grey top and accessories! Love H&M! x

this free bird said...

I don't blame you one bit! (or Daria for calling out to you like a good girlfriend should do - hehe)...you look so cute in that top and you're going to wear it all kinds of chic ways in the current and upcoming season.

You rock a toque better than anyone I've seen! I love it on you. The entire ensemble is fantastic from head to toe (and yes I did notice those fab boots and the jewelry too!!)

xoxo,
Carrie

I would definitely take it as a sign that you were meant to go back to the car and get the sweater. It looks super cute. As always you have great style!
So weird we live in the same country but today it was super hot in Ontario (definitely not toque weather)

I love this outfit! That sweater is gorgeous, and I hear you - chilly enough to break out winter wear here, too! Loved the little story, too - too funny! I'd say from these photos, the sweater was meant to be yours! Good purchase!

Café Bellini said...

Hahaha glad you ignored that one, the top looks great on you and I bet you'll wear it loads this winter! It looks so comfy and I'm looking for longer jumpers that I can wear with jeggings... Last Friday I popped into zara and h&m but didn't have the patience to look around! too many people and just too hectic! I'll go during the week next week :-) I want to hear your psychic story!

Emilie said...

gorgeous!! you have a fabulous blog, I'll be back!

big kisses
