The Best Sweaters at H&M This Fall

If there’s one article of clothing that has the ability to bring complete, total, unmitigated joy to an otherwise drab day, it’s a sweater. Working from home while sweating in a T-shirt is a completely different experience from doing the same thing in a big, soft ball of yarn that feels like its swallowing you up in its warmth and pure coziness.

The past few years have shown us one thing: that the best sweaters of the season sell out fast. Once it’s actually sweater weather, your chances of getting your hands on the ones of your dreams are slim to none—so that means that, yes, August is the time to shop them.

H&M is known for having some of the best sweaters on the market at prices you cant beat, so we’ve rounded up our favorites of fall 2020—shop them now, and your future self will be sure to thank you.

How to Spruce Up a Rental Bathroom for Less Than $200

90 percent of the time, I’m the kind of gal who would take character and charm over shiny and new any day of the week. But that 10 percent? It’s a doozy—especially if you’re a renter.

See, when it comes to budget-friendly rentals, there’s the kind of character that most of us open with welcome arms: Arched doorways! Wood floors! A fireplace! Decorative moulding!                                                        

And then there’s the kind of “character” that can be found in the vast majority of rental bathroomsevidence of all 567 people who showered and bathed there before you. 

You know what I’m referring to: the dingy tile and (even dingier) grout, coupled with floors that never look clean no matter how hard you scrub. Not to mention other common eyesores, like outdated light fixtures and little to no storage.

Fear not, fellow renters! I’ve scoured the internet for seven of the best ways to spruce up a rental bathroom, because we all deserve to apply our face masks in peace.

 

1. Swap in a new mirror and hardware

Source: @bradytolbert | @zekeruelas

In a vintage-style bathroom, updated hardware makes retro tile feel current and intentional, as opposed to dusty and neglected. This is one of those sought-after rental hacks that is totally reversible, so you can even take your new pieces to your next spot when you move. If you’ve got a little extra room in your budget, swap in a new shower head while you’re at it. It’s a small change that will never fail to feel ultra-luxurious in a rental. 

 

2. Cover old wall tile with peel and stick

Source: @saratoufali

Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. I’m still shook that this bathroom tile from Sara Toufali is faux! The addition of peel and stick tiles will do wonders for adding (the good kind of) character back into your space, while leaving that dingy old backsplash far behind.

 

3. Add a durable rug to cover dated floors

Source: Alaina Kaczmaski | Aimée Mazzenga for The Everygirl 

It’s time to branch out from the specifically allocated “bathroom rugs” found at Target. Instead, opt for a small indoor/outdoor or low-pile rug with either pattern, texture, or color, which will instantly feel more “high-end” without the scary price tag. Bonus: It’ll hide that less-than-desirable flooring in the process.

 

4. Create a diversion with a gallery wall

Source: @honestlywtf

If you can’t totally rehaul the features that you don’t like in your rental, distract from them. A gallery wall draws the eye up and away from other common problem areas of the bathroom (like the shower, vanity, or flooring), and is an ideal way to personalize a small bath since you only need vertical wall space!

 

5. Upgrade your light fixtures

Source: Emily Schoen | Marta Xochilt Perez for The Everygirl

Consider lighting your most prominent bathroom accessorythe shoes of an ensemble, if you willas they can very quickly elevate or downgrade your space. That being said, there’s no need to get fancy. Inexpensive fixtures that look like they were made in this decade will do wonders for updating your rental bathroom. Pro Tip: Black finishes are a foolproof choice to make an older room instantly feel more modern.

 

6. Create a fresh feeling with greenery

Source: @alexandragater | @laurenkolyn_studio

Rental bathrooms are often missing that coveted squeaky clean look and feel, but you can fake it with the addition of fresh greenery. The infusion of natural color and texture revitalizes the entire room, and you’ll never have an easier time keeping your plants alive than when they’re directly next to your shower.

 

7. Make open storage a feature

Source: Danielle Moss

Since double vanities are something most renters only fantasize about, storage is not exactly plentiful. Instead, add simple, open shelving and take the opportunity to combine form and function. Use glass vessels for storing essentials like cotton pads or Q-tips, keep toilet paper corralled in wire bins, and put your favorite perfumes and bath salts on display.

20 Lunches You Can Make in Less Than 20 Minutes

Sometimes, meal prep just doesn’t happen. Whether it’s because you didn’t have time to do your usual prep or hate meal prep more than anything, that can make quick, easy-to-pull-together meals even more of a necessity. After all, there are only so many frozen meals you can microwave. From lunch breaks to those times when you’re just hangry, there are all kinds of instances when you’d benefit from a super quick and easy meal. We rounded up 20 that all come together in about 20 minutes or less, so you have plenty of time to make and eat your lunch without having to resort to that bag of chips in your cupboard.

4 Tips to Follow If You Find Yourself Moving During the Pandemic

If moving or relocating isn’t stressful enough, moving under a global pandemic multiplies that stress by 10. As we tackle continued guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks, and frequent sanitizing, it probably isn’t the most optimal time to pack up everything and move to a new place, but life waits for no one—and no pandemic.

For many, moving is inevitable, even during these times. Whether you are purchasing your first home, finally moving out on your own, or relocating for a new job, the process of moving is daunting, and worrying about the health of you and your family while moving during the COVID-19 pandemic poses its own challenges. 

If time is ticking on your move, make sure you are well-prepared with a few tips on staying safe and healthy while doing so. 

 

1. Check for safety and sanitary practices

Before you plan to move or relocate, it’s important to check for the safety practices of any business you might be using to assist you, from packing and moving services to utility providers who will be in your new home setting up your services. All businesses should be taking precautions to limit their exposure to you and your home due to social distancing, including wearing proper masks and gloves and reducing their time in your home.

Call your movers to discuss their safety precautions and hygiene practices during COVID-19, including the sanitation of their moving supplies and trucks, and whether their employees follow social distancing guidelines. If you are moving yourself and reserving transportation, make and confirm your reservation online to seamlessly and safely prepare for your move. During the pick-up of your moving van or truck, confirm that the equipment has been properly sanitized, and bring your own cleaning supplies, masks, and gloves to thoroughly clean the equipment yourself. 

 

2. Be cautious when using recycled supplies  

It may be tempting to save a few bucks during your move by grabbing free, used boxes and moving supplies, but it could also be a potential health hazard. Since the coronavirus can live on various surfaces for at least 24 hours, be cautious when recycling and reusing old boxes and packing supplies from friends, family, or local businesses and neighbors. 

Big box stores supply unused moving supplies to help you pack as safely as possible. This ensures that there’s no risk of transporting germs into your old and new home. Many moving companies will also provide their customers with new boxes and packing supplies as a part of their services. 

If you’re looking for ways to save money on moving supplies, reach out to trusted resources like family or friends for leftover, gently-used materials before searching for free supplies online from local resources. Most likely, close family and friends will have unused boxes available, but make sure to confirm that they’ve only been used once. If you must use free recycled items, make sure to clean all supplies before and after packing and moving to ensure your safety and health.  

 

3. Clean as you unpack  

Depending on where you are moving to, whether it’s a new apartment, a new home, or back in with family, friends, or a roommate, your new space may or may not be fully cleaned or disinfected properly, especially if there were former tenants living there right before you moved in. No matter how safely you might move, taking all precautions and safety measures, your new place might not be cleaned properly

Plan to do a deep clean during your move to ensure that your new place is properly sanitized before getting comfortable and fully unpacking. Continue to follow your own safety protocols, even in your own home, until your new place is fully cleaned and sanitized: 

  • Continue to wear protective masks and gloves while unpacking and cleaning your new home
  • Sanitize all the surfaces of your home, your boxes after they arrive, and the most-used areas of the home like the toilets, door knobs, and surfaces in high-trafficked areas 
  • Try to limit the amount of people going in and out of your home while unpacking to avoid cross-contamination of any kind 
  • If you are using a cleaning service, confirm their sanitary procedures beforehand to ensure that not only you, but also their employees, remain safe 

Before getting comfortable in your new place, ensure that you are protecting yourself and your family and future guests, giving your home a thorough cleaning while you move. 

 

4. Pack your patience  

Make sure while you’re packing to save enough room for your patience. With safety, social distancing, and sanitary guidelines varying all across the country, make sure to give yourself enough room and time to be prepared for the unexpected. Some states under stricter guidelines might restrict utility companies like cable technicians and contractors from servicing customers inside their homes due to social distancing mandates, so be flexible when scheduling appointments for your new home. Make sure to contact your movers and utility providers and servicers ahead of your move to confirm their safety mandates and if they are offering full or limited service.

If appointments, travel, and other moving services must be rescheduled, communicate with your new landlord, family members and potential new job about any moving delays due to the impact of COVID-19. Work with your moving company and utility providers to schedule the safest service well ahead of your move, and verify if their services or availability have changed. 

Due to the precautions being taken because of COVID-19, you might have to roll up your sleeves and move yourself versus hiring movers or go without a few of your favorite luxuries in the beginning like cable or your new furniture and home décor if services like utility set ups and deliveries are delayed. Don’t get discouraged; delays are expected during these times, and with the right amount of patience, flexibility and preparation, you’ll be ready to embrace your new home safely.

I Got to Preview the Nordstrom Sale—Here’s Everything I Tried On

Nordstrom’s 2020 Anniversary Sale has officially kicked off, and it’s time to prioritize what we’re vying to add to our carts before items begin selling out (the rush!).

While the sale looks a little different this year, it’s chock-full of its usual fabulous pieces that can be worn year in and year out (with the addition of plenty of cozy options to get us through this winter in isolation). I was able to stop by Chicago’s Nordstrom store and (very, very safely) check out some of the things that are discounted this year. To absolutely no one’s surprise, my wish list grew by multiple pieces, and the entire experience reminded me just why this sale is so damn good. 

These are the things I tried on, accompanied by plenty of opinions on everything from fit to feel. (Unless I state otherwise, I’m wearing a size small in everything.)

 

Every year for the sale, Nordstrom releases that year’s version of this suede BlankNYC jacket (and the faux-leather one below). I bought this jacket last year and I truly wear it to death. I reach for it at least once a week, and the color paired with both light-wash and black denim is incredible for fall. If you’re only looking to buy one or two things, I absolutely couldn’t recommend this more. I know I’ll be wearing this for years to come.

The same goes for this jacket. I bought mine four years ago during the sale and still wear it all the time when the temperatures are chilly (I actually own a much more expensive leather moto jacket as well and am always surprised to find myself reaching for this one just as much, if not more.) There is truly nothing bad you can say about it—it’s amazing quality (it doesn’t feel stiff or artificial like many faux-leather jackets can), the fit is perfect, and it can go with anything. It’s a fool-proof buy.

This blazer was one of the first things that caught my eye in the sale, and it did not disappoint. It’s the perfect oversized option to wear all fall and winter long, and the length and fit are ultra-flattering. If I didn’t already own so many blazers, this would be a no-brainer purchase for me.

BB Dakota

Plaid Boyfriend Blazer

This is something I hadn’t seen online, but when I saw it in-store, I couldn’t wait to try it on. This is an amazing basic to add to your cart during the sale. It’s thin enough that it can be worn under jackets or your parka without sweating to death, but the subtle puffy sleeves and higher neck make it exciting enough to wear on its own too. I generally wear a size small, but I am wearing an extra small here, and it fits perfectly.

This year, Nordstrom added tons of cozy items to the sale, all of which are perfect to stock up on for the long, quarantined winter ahead—and this sweater is no exception. It is incredibly soft and is perfect to invest in if you want a few loungewear items that feel more like real clothes for work-from-home days.

I had my eye on this fun, sherpa North Face jacket, and it was even cozier in person. I could see myself wearing this all. the. time. It’s like the North Face jacket I had in middle school but adult and chic and strikes that perfect, mid-warmth level of jacket that you need for October and November.

I can’t say I’ve ever tried a pair of ponte paints on before, but this pair made me kick myself for having never picked up some for work. They are exactly the same consistency as a legging but look like a real, sophisticated trouser. Paired with any color of sweater and a pair of booties, these could be a perfect fall uniform (and dare I say they’re comfortable enough that I could actually see myself wearing them to work from home).

As we’ve established about a million times before, I love a puffy sleeve, so I couldn’t have gotten my hands on this faster. I found this super flattering and, again, unique enough that I could throw it on with jeans and feel like I’m actually wearing a real outfit. This material is super soft, and I love the shade to have a winter white moment.

I never have shopped the athletic wear during the sale, so this year I made a point to try some out. Everything I have on here is Zella, and boy, it was good. This jacket is one of my top priorities to buy during the sale—it is so thick and flattering and is one of those things I always wish I owned. This higher-necked sports bra is also incredible—super easy to be paired with some high-waisted leggings and worn as a top. And lastly, these are fool-proof black leggings. All of these items are hyped for a reason: they’re amazing quality, and since athletic wear hardly goes on sale, this is the time to get them.

I snagged this cropped Topshop sweater with visions of wearing it with leggings to work from home in mind, and it didn’t disappoint me. It’s super soft and I love that it’s cropped but not too cropped. It’s a perfect opportunity to swap out some old sorority sweatshirts for an option that’s a little more adult.

These sweatpants are one of the most unique materials I have ever felt—they literally feel like a legging turned into a pant. I felt very put-together in them, which is something sweatpants don’t ordinarily make you feel.

I’ve been dying to try this style of Levi’s for a while. They’re pegged as a wider fit than a classic straight leg, which I was excited about for my legs that are prone to making a straight fit look more like a skinny. Oh man, did I love these. They’re very high waisted, which I was worried about as I have a shorter torso, but I was obsessed with the fit from the second I put them on. These are, dare I say, the jeans of my dreams. 10/10, one of the things I will absolutely be purchasing.
