I am a fan of solid colors and the occasional small print, but a bold graphic print that is a little out of my comfort zone. While shopping at H&M over the weekend, I saw this top and thought it was really cool and fun. The design was not something I would normally wear, but I immediately knew this top would go great with my new Paige jeans. So I decided to take a step out of my comfort zone and get it. I’m not going to lie, I am still a little hesitant about this top. It’s not that I don’t like this top because I absolutely adore it! But this top definitely stands out among the other items in my closet. I think it is fun and pretty, but it is definitely different from what I might normally pick up. Every so often, I love buying something that is a little out of my style comfort zone. I have found some great clothes by doing this. It pushes my style to a new and exciting level, and make me a little braver the next time I am out shopping. I also love that I can pick up these pieces for reasonable prices at places like H&M. This top is under $30!
I have to mention my new Paige jeans for a minute. I picked them up this weekend at Nordstrom. I have to brag about the jeans department at Nordstrom. I love how knowledgeable they are about their jeans. I always have a slew of questions when buying a new brand of jeans. Will they stretch? Will they fade? Do these look OK or too tight? They know it all! I love that they wear the jeans and can tell you from their experience how they fit after you wear them for a bit. Plus, they will hem them for you FOR FREE! I am 5’3 so my jeans are almost always too long so I love the free hem! If you ever are in the market for a new pair jeans, try the Nordstrom jeans department out!
