Today’s Attire: H&M for Old Time’s Sake

by jennine on December 18, 2009

old time's sake


I must have walked passed by Grace Cathedral thousands of times, on my way to work, on my way home, on my way where ever. And no matter how many times I pass by, I always stop to look in awe. Not that it’s the most gorgeous cathedral, I’ve seen more grand. But it’s the most beautiful cathedral I’ve lived close to. In the early days of The Coveted, I would snap my Today’s Attire shots on my way to work right on the front steps. It was kind of like the beginning to a life that’s now so very different. I don’t work in an office, I’ve traveled and had the opportunity to live a life beyond anything I could ever imagine… I’ve also struggled financially and sometimes emotionally. But it’s all been worth it.

This ‘vacation’ I’ve been on has been tough, I’ve been bedridden for nearly two weeks, only yesterday was I able to venture out, since the day was so gorgeous. I’m not really quite up to wearing outfits that require much thought or effort, but luckily I had a cozy dress that I picked up at H&M… oddly enough… is this a sign that I’m liking H&M again? Or is it that I only like the H&M on Powell & O’Farrell? Who knows?

But it was nice to come out to my old outfit spot and snap a few photos for you. It brought back a lot of memories…

Aww this post made me a bit homesick. You look lovely, even if you aren’t feeling great. How unfortunate to get so sick while traveling. Really hope you recover soon and have a happy & HEALTHY holiday!

I think the location of Grace Cathedral up there at the top of the hill also adds to its magnificence. These outfit shots are just gorgeous, as is that jacket. It was great to meet you Jennine; hope to see you back here soon!
