Saturday Outfit + Shopping at H&M

Yesterday, I decided to head to the opposite side of the city to check out H&M (this trip was inspired by Curvy Girl Chic and all her fabulous H&M outfits.) In the past when I've shopped there, I never had any luck. I was limited to only purchasing accessories. So, needless to say, I have kind of shied away. Now, I believe they have extended their size range slightly to incorporate sizes 14 and 16.
Here is what I wore to the mall: (Shirt, Old Navy $5. Dress, Old Navy $12. Leggings, F21 $5.50. Boots, Torrid $50ish before coupon. Belt, Old Navy $13. Headband, Old Navy $1.50. Bag, mark. $30)

...and here are a few of the pieces I tried on at H&M:

Flowy floral top ($14.95) from the new Garden Collection, made of recycled polyester, size 14. I am wearing leggings here, but how cute would this top be with dark skinnies and flats?

This oversized top ($29.95) would have been fabulous...had it fit me in the arms. The sequin embellishments on the shoulders add just enough flair to make it interesting. I tried on a size medium because that was all they had...thankfully not having a large kept me on a budget.

This dress was my favorite item of the day. The soft, neutral pink color and the silky texture reminded me of something that my Mom used to wear. The versatility of this dress is amazing. Wear it alone with some girly heels (these ones? ha!) for a soft, romantic look or pair it with a cardigan and black tights for a more laid-back, airy look. Plus- at $29.95, how could a girl say no?

So, I came home with my new dress and the floral top...for under $50. I'd say this trip was a success.
