I was fortunate enough to be invited to the press preview breakfast earlier this morning at the very first H&M in Houston, Texas at Baybrook Mall. Its grand opening is at noon today and there was already a huge line forming outside (see pictures below). I was also lucky enough to have my BFF Tracy (also maid of honor at my wedding) there to shop and take outfit photos. Thanks Tracy! We also met Nicole Christie, she’s the buyer for H&M on Fashion Star–she’s super friendly. (You can see her in the vivid yellow dress behind me in the photos.)

Check out photos of the gorgeous store, below. In addition to Women’s, they also have sizable Mens’ and Kids’ collections. Thanks H&M for inviting me to this awesome press preview–and for letting us shop as much as we wanted.

    I’m so excited to check it out! I might just have to hear up there to tonight. I’m really hoping that H&M lives up to everything I have heard since Baybrook did away with Ann Taylor to put it in. Did they have much in the way of plus sizes?

    Looks like fun! I have the same AE vest :) Love the pants and the bright silk top! So cool that you met the buyer from fashion star!!!! :)

    Love the outfit and I am usually turned off by H&M because of the set up of the store but I really love how the layout, things are neatly arranged and there is no clutter.

    So jealous you have an H&M in your town! The closest one to me is an hour, but sometimes it’s totally worth the drive. Cute outfit too!

    How exciting!! The first H&M opened in a mall in my area a couple years ago. I was so excited about it, but sadly it fell flat in comparison to the H&Ms I’d been to overseas :/ This one looks much better though! The selection looks great.
    Hope you had fun!

    Hi Kristina,

    just found your blog. Think it is really lovely!!

    Your outfit is amazing! Really love your snake printed jeans!! And of course your Alexa bag :)

    As you have far more experience in blogging than me (just started 1 month ago) I would be so honoured if you’d check out my blog and let me know if you like it and/or give me tipps about what I can improve. Though I really understand if it isn’t the perfect time right now as you probably have your hands full with your upcoming wedding (congratulations to that!!).

    I wish you all the best and I am sure they will change your last name on your Starbucks golden card and give it back to you ASAP ;)
