SHOP THE POST
I am going to preface this by saying that I didn’t realize how dirty the mirrors were, so no I am not actually covered in fuzz from head to toe ;) And please ignore the half assed painted toe nails. I haven’t work sandals in well over a month (insert cringing emoji). Once again I have a Saturday post but I promised myself I would get these up by today. I went to H&M for a try-on last week and took some photos of several of the pieces I have featured lately. I thought I would try them out to see how they fit and then post photos.
It’s so windy right now the girls are scared of a tornado. I told them that while it is quite windy out, it seems worse because we are on a higher floor. But yay for fall finally being here, it’s actually starting to smell like it.
Merle is pretty much in every shot. She is my shadow so it should be expected that any place you see me she is some place close by. For the record she got both the witch hat, and cat ear muffs in the photos. She was super indecisive, but although the ear muffs make more sense you can’t really pass up a jaunty witch hat ;)
Black fuzzy jacket $59.99: Fits true to size, comfortable, and a fun statement jacket. I’m not sure how it would look if it got wet though ;)
Black Moto Jacket with fur collar $69.99 – Fits true to size but I went up a size because I like to have room to layer sweaters underneath. If you get it too fitted then your arms end up looking like stuffed sausages when you wear something bulky underneath.
Polka Dot Midi Dress $34.99 – I really like this dress. It fits well but you might need to size up if you have a larger bust. The waist is a wide elastic cinch and there are pockets which are a huge selling feature for me. It also comes in a very bright but awesome red-orange.
Grey V-neck Sweater $29.99 – This is just a standard v-neck sweater in a great price. Fits true to size, but a slightly looser fit. Is a soft knit with a stretch and comes in a variety of colours.
Polka Dot Blouse $9.99 – This blouse should be sized up because the waistline has darts that make it slightly more fitted in that area. The fabric is gauzy but not sheer, with a large easy to tie bow. The price is only $9.99 so this is a steal and would look awesome paired with a print blazer (to check out how I paired it you can see my outfit options post from yesterday).
Oversized Sweater $59.99 – This sweater comes in camel and soft grey. It is oversized but I am only 5’3″ so it would be shorter on a taller person. The neckline is a loose mock neck and the knit is extremely soft. I actually really like this sweater and wouldn’t mind getting it in both colours. There is an identical style in their Conscious line that is made from a cashmere blend and is lovely.
All in all, these pieces worked. There were two that I didn’t post a photo of because the pants wouldn’t fit over my ass and they didn’t have the next size up, and a wrap shirt that ended up being way too cropped at the waist and was not cute with my muffin top ;) The top would have work with a high waist pant or skirt though.
