Opening of the First H&M in Ottawa!

It's been a while since I've posted about fashion or beauty, so here it is!

After hundreds of five hour drives to Toronto for some shopping sprees, I am delighted to say that Ottawa's shopping malls and  stores may finally be enough to satisfy our local shopaholics. I, myself, was ecstatic  when I found out that we would be opening a Forever XXI and H&M all in a short time period.

Because of my mountain of homework, assignments and upcoming tests, I did not plan to visit H&M anytime soon. Instead, some act of fate (haha, not really) gave me the perfect opening to go browse through the new store on our way back from Toronto, ironically enough.

It definitely met my expectations. The clothes were amazing because, let's be honest, lot's of stores *coughforeverxxicough* sometimes like to give their Ottawa stores the products that don't sell as well. I found so many nice things, but because I was a few days late, most of them didn't come in my size anymore.

Here are the two things I actually ended up buying:

Over-Sized Sweater
I FINALLY FOUND AN AMAZING SWEATER. I've been looking for a cozy sweater since the end of August. They all ended up being too cropped, too scratchy or too thin. I've already worn this three times since I bought it haha. (Oh, shoutout to Renee, who I know is reading this post, for being the first to compliment the sweater. ;) ) I love how this sweater is super baggy with a cozy and wintery design. The back even drapes down a little so you can wear leggings without showing off your... bottom... :P

Sorry about the unoriginal picture! I just packed away all my summer clothes without planning for this post and I have no idea where my mom put all the bags, haha. Back to the dress.
Neon Pink Dress
I never really bought such a bright dress before... I tried on the same dress in royal blue as well, but somehow this pink one just stood out to me. This dress fits super nicely and ends right above the knees. The contrast between the bright pink and the black is perfect and, overall, it just gives off this great energetic vibe.

So there we have it. My first of many adventures to Ottawa's very first H&M! I hope you all enjoyed this fashion post, it has been a while hasn't it?

What are your favourite stores?

See you next Sunday! xx


  1. I love that sweater! I live in Toronto and yet I rarely ever go into the H&M there! I can't believe they didn't have one in Ottawa before now!
    I'm definitely going to look there for some cozy winter clothes now! :)

    1. Thank you! And I'm so jealous that you live is such a great shopping city! Glad I could make some recommendations :)
