A Sweater So Good I'd Buy It Twice

November 5, 2017


I don't get out to brick and mortar stores (besides Target) very often so my version of window shopping is browsing an online retailer's "new arrivals".  Here's what I'm loving from H&M right now!

1. Fine-knit sweater  2. Hooded sweatshirt cardigan  3. Knot-detail sweatshirt  4. Off-the-shoulder sweater  5. Long-sleeved blouse  6.  Fine-knit sweater   7. Puff-sleeve blouse  8. Sweatshirt with appliques

I did not set out looking for tops exclusively, but somehow that's what ended up in my virtual shopping bag.  For this time of year, I feel like you're either treasuring precious downtime or cherishing special events and this set of tops covers both of those extremes.  


Tops 2, 3, and 8 are such great examples of detailed casual wear.  Any of them would look great with a black legging or slim boyfriend jean and a rain boot or fun sneaker to finish off the look.


Items 4, 5, and 7 are great options for all the "fancy" events you've got coming up through the end of 2017.  Paired with skinny black denim and heeled booties they would be great for a girlfriends' gift exchange.  Swap in a lace pencil skirt and statement jewelry to make the tops appropriate for a festive office party.


Finally, did you notice that 1 and 6 are the same sweater?  I originally added the dark green to my shopping bag, but when I noticed the metallic detail on the other color called "Rust/glittery" (who do they pay to come up with that?!) I thought it would be perfect for the holidays.  And although I just couldn't get on board with the bell sleeve trend (tell me that's not covered in gravy by the end of Turkey Day!), I do love the lantern sleeve detail on this sweater.  


Is there a color, fabric, or sleeve detail you're loving for the holidays this year? Or any - like me and bell sleeves - that you just can't get on board with?
