Love this spring dress
If you’ve bumped into me anytime lately, you’ve seen my large, black handbag thrown over my shoulder.

Every aspect of my life seems to congregate in my purse, so I can probably feed you, assist you in health ailments, offer jokes for your party, and provide solutions to most problems, all which come from the bottom of that purse.

Can anyone relate? šŸ˜‰

Anyhow, that perfect handbag came from H&M years ago. A few weeks ago, my 15 year old daughter and I went to NYC’s Fashion Week. While we were trying to ward off the frostbite, we popped into H&M on my friend’s recommendation. She told me she had purchased her ten year old’s father/daughter dance dress on sale for under $10. I was reminded of why I love that store in the first place.

Love this adorable embroidered top

H&M offers great fashion for my Frugal Fashionista budget. I’ve always popped in there for me, but since we had time to wander, I realized that they have an amazing Kids’ section as well. Actually, they have a great variety for every family member.

Our 11 year old daughter is the true fashionista of the family. If you follow me on facebook, you know that she is very specific on her fashion opinions, including mine, and honestly, I’ve learn to listen to her because that girl has style.

For her upcoming birthday, she has requested a “shopping spree.” (Now that is a very relative term, depending on who you ask.) When H&MĀ asked if she’d like to pick out a few outfits, her year was made.

Love these wedges $5 H&M

We may have stopped in for her, butĀ I stopped in my tracks when I saw these wedges on sale for $5!!

$5 people. That’s your Frappuccino that’s gone in ten minutes. She loved them and tried convincing me they’d fit her too. It won’t be long, I know. I bought them. šŸ™‚

I’m picky on who I partner with when it comes to fashion because while I’m all about investing in a few quality pieces, it needs to be affordable. She is growing every month. It’s crazy! Things I buy today will not fit in the fall, so H&M’s girls’ line lets me give her a shopping spree with the most fun trends, yet stay completely functional.

Fun, Frugal & Functionality – it’s the best of all worlds.

Great tank from H&M $3 clearance

Plus, their sales? Better than my typical stomping grounds. This tank was $3!! I know, I know. They have moreĀ tanksĀ with printing on the front.

It’s a bit of a drive to our local H&M, so I’ve also been following H&M online.

Having fun with our new spring wardrobe

Right now, my daughter is beside herself because their new Spring Line has been launched and cuteness abounds.

Since spring fever has hit our family and we’re clearing out draws and closets, we are updating wardrobes.

(She was so embarrassed to takeĀ these pictures, so I told her to just act silly and get her embarrassment out. Little did she know I started snapping the pictures.)

Having fun

And when she found out…pricelessĀ reaction. This is tough work, friends. šŸ™‚

Don’t you just love the cut of this spring dress? I want one in my size.

Spring wardrobe from H&M

It’s the perfect time to update some new pieces since H&M’s amazing kids sale is going on now, both on-line and in-store. If you’re looking for Easter outfits, this is your place. Many of the little girls dresses are under $5.

This gorgeous embroidered top is her favorite. Paired with the skinny jeans she found, it’s great for chilly days or paired with the jean shorts shown above, it willĀ be perfect on summer nights. Her thrifted jacket was a recent find and she was ecstaticĀ at how cute it looked layered with the shirt.

Spring picks

Choices, choices…

This adorable striped jerseyĀ dress isĀ Ā just $12.99 (plus extra 20% off now), but to help her make a quicker decision (this was hard, I tell you), I explained that at the rate she’s growing, that dress would be too short in oh, one month. šŸ™‚

The dress purse andĀ adorable boots went back,Ā but she kept these fun, funky and comfortable pants, which she can wear year round.

Pant suits are so popular this year

We will end with one of my favorites. When I was planning my trip to Fashion Week, I asked my instagram followers for some wardrobe suggestions. A few mentioned how popularĀ jump suits were this season, but I never got a chance to try one on.

Is this not adorable? Ā (And yes, she still has on MY new wedges. I think it’s the start of something) šŸ™‚

I adore this look, plus it’s so versatile. She’ll be able to wear this winter through summer just by throwing on a sweater. The jumpsuits for girls were only $14.95 (plus 20% off duringĀ kids sale – $12). I’m eyeing some for me now.

Special moments with Eddie

Our special blessing nephew was our main fashion director during this entire “photo shoot.” He encouraged Emma to have fun, so we can’t finish without special props to him.
