Thankfully, H&M was there to come to my trendy rescue. I didn't even bother trying on Express', as cute and colorful as they were, because I couldn't justify their prices on something so trendy. Even though February is over and new clothes are allowed, I'm still trying to be frugal. H&M delivered on spring trends for me as I found a dotted peplum top, a pastel dress, and my green jeans for around $50. Can't beat that! I want to go back immediately, though, because we just missed the Marni collection for H&M and some of those pieces look adorable.
What I'm Wearing:
Striped Tee: American Eagle
Scarf: a little shop off Dam Square in Amsterdam (2006)
Green Skinny Jeans: H&M
Studded Flats: American Eagle
One think I was surprised to love about these jeans is the rise. For so many years I've been a low-slung, hiphugger girl which made me a little skeptical of how high on the hips these jeans sit. In fact, I almost didn't try them on. I'm so glad I did! I found the slightly higher rise to be quite slimming, even though I paired the pants with horizontal stripes. Reason #2 for going back to H&M immediately: more high-waisted skinny jeans! Between jeans like this and my New Year's resolution of working out, I may beat the love handles in 2012!
