I recently gained a whole new respect for H&M and I am loving it! Lately, I’ve been so enamored with Nordstrom that I forgot the affordable style finds you can score at H&M. So I took advantage of my visit to the mall to step into H&M and they did not disappoint. I had to restrain myself from all the amazing tops, dresses and bottoms they just put out for Spring. I went home with 4 tops that will make great transition pieces from Winter to Spring. Two are long-sleeved but lightweight and the other two will fit right in with the upcoming season.
Green With Envy
First up is this lovely, dark green blouse. I love the long sleeves and the cuffs with smocking. It has a round neckline with a concealed button on the back. The back of the blouse is also a little longer than the front. I paired this top with some mega-flares. By mega, I mean the kind that cover your feet — like the ones in the 90s (y’all remember?) I also like the print on the blouse because its the same color and just adds a little more wow to this uni-colored top.
Next is this navy blue, floral top. I love the fringe detailing and the puff sleeves give it personality. The tie at the neck can be worn either in a bow or you can let them hang loose. For this top, I paired it with navy slacks and nude heels for an office-ready look that you can easily take out for drinks afterward.
Then we have this long-sleeved polka-dot top. It has a small, ruffled stand up collar and V-cut opening in the front. There are also gathers near the front of the shoulders and narrow cuffs with small ruffles at the end. This blouse is really light weight and I though it perfect with some white denim and OTK gray boots.
Pretty in Pink (Lilac?)
Last is this adorable, eyelet wrap blouse. I fell in love with this pastel color — in between pink and light purple to me. The top is cotton and has
eyelet embroidery and some fringe detailing near the front of the shoulders. The top wraps in the front giving great definition to the waist. The short-sleeved cuffs can be a little tight (they were for me) so I sized up for comfort. I paired it with black denim that had fringe detailing at the hem and soft pink mules with ruffle detailing. I love this look for a Valentine’s Day/ Night out.
The best part about these four looks is the price! I walked away spending less than $100 for all four tops. H&M brings some great styles at really affordable prices and that is why I will be visiting them more often. I didn’t have too much time to really shop when I was there so I took a look at their website and it looks like trouble. They have sooooo many other items I didn’t see in store (or just missed them altogether) that it makes it so tempting not to shop. What other stores do you find affordable finds? Let me know!
