Here are some more of my H & M finds I found last weekend. I was really surprised at how well this white blazer fit! I already have 2 other white blazers from Bebe and Express but they are so old that they are not bright white anymore- so I figured for the price tag of $49.95- it wasn't too bad. I also decided to get this H & M pencil skirt as well because I just love the fit. So my entire outfit is from H & M.
Top: H & M ruffle shell- size XS
Pin: Black flower pin (similar HERE)
Shoes: Aldo Black Patent Pumps- size 5 (similar HERE)
Cons on Blazer: The sleeves are extremely long! The couple H & M blazers I have, the sleeves fit pretty nicely but this one was really lengthly for some reason! So I had to cuff them twice! I guess it looks good with the sleeves cuffed so I didn't hestiate to get it.
Pros on skirt: The cut is fabulous and is very fitting. The length is a perfect length for petites. The waist and hips fit nicely without it being skin tight- which is very work appropriate. The quality compared to F21 is by far much better.
Cons on skirt: For some strange reason, they decided to make the lining super long! It peeks out when you sit and when you stand or walk- it irks me so much! I had to pin up the lining temporarily and will have to sew it up higher. Other than this issue- this skirt would be perfect!
Verdict: KEEPING both items!
I added this black flower pin to dress the oufit up. I have a bunch of flower pins for years ago that I took off of other shirts and saved them. Thank goodness I didn't donate them or throw them out! Whew! I also found some cheap flower pins at H & M in case anyone is looking for one.
Black and white combo is one of my favorites. Simple and chic.
H & M is a great place to get affordable blazers and skirts for work. I have had alot of luck finding items that fit nicely without breaking the bank and without the cost of tailoring. I made it one of my missions this year to not have to spend money on tailoring unless its totally necessary. That alone saves me so much money!
Anyone else have a white blazer they love?
