Inspiration can come from anything: street style, runways, television, and magazine pictorials. Lately I’ve been passing the time checking out the spring lines by online shopping. As depressing as it is since I’m cutting back on my shopping in order to be a more money-wise “grown-up”, I did come across a few things that made me smile. What were these things: H&M’s spring campaign and J.Crew’s spring lookbook.

I can’t walk pass H&M without dragging him in and making him endure hours of “oohs”, “ahhhs”, “do you like this” and “I want this” (and the poor man puts up with it). If you have a strong relationship with H&M as I do then you are in for a treat with their new Spring Awakening campaign. I love the country, western, outdoor vibe with all the use of denim and natural colors. So here are my H&M Spring Awakening inspired looks:

But now I just wander the store drooling over the clothing and dreaming of the day when I will be rich enough to have closet (or two) full of J.Crew clothing.

So being inspired by J.Crew’s look book I creative looks that are equally chic but more budget friendly:
