Just A Little Bit

I was a little nervous about this top when it first arrived in the mail.  Not because I don’t love it, because, man, do I ever.  But because it’s a little more on the cropped side than I’m used to, and I wasn’t quite sure how to style it.  So after trying it on with a lot of different things, I decided it looked the best with high-waisted skirts.  And while this is a look that is just a little bit “sexier” than I would typically gravitate towards, it’s still one that’s chic, and would be perfect for a date night or girl’s night out.  And it’s definitely an outfit that is really fun to try.

Watercolors

It’s no secret I love prints of all colors, patterns, and variations. They are such a fun and easy way to add interest to any outfit. Plus, with the recent acceptability to mix prints of all kinds, they lend to creating endless outfit combinations in your closet.

One of my favorite places to find a good print is at H&M. Since specific patterns don’t tend to stay on trend for very long periods of time, I don’t typically like to invest in them, but rather prefer to pick up inexpensive and fun prints that I can play with for a time and easily let go when they have run their course. Such is the case with the below top. While I have lots of great prints in my closet, I don’t have any watercolor prints, so knew it was a perfect addition to my closet the moment I saw it. I love how feminine this top is and that it is one of those great hybrids that I can wear for work or play. Plus, it’s just long enough that I can tie it at the waist if I so desire!

In addition to being pretty, and feminine, and versatile, I also love that this top is a very unique multi-color ombre-essentially it goes with just about everything.  So when you are out shopping for prints, try to look for something similar to this top that will not only allow you to be creative, but will also function as an easy piece to accessorize and pair with multiple items in your closet.

Happy Wednesday!
