I fell in love with this pattern from H&M when I saw it on one of their Spring collection shift dress. At the time the dress was a little too pricey for me therefore I didn't purchase it. I didn't know they had the same pattern on a top until I saw this one on the clearance rack. Before trying it on I was afraid that the top would be too short and show my mid-section. As a short petite I tend to wear shorter length skirts to give the illusion of longer legs so to pair it with a short top would be a big mistake.
In any case the top worked out well. I paired it with a black skirt and beige wedges so that the focus will be on the colorful top. I also kept my jewelry simple. As you can see I was even experimenting during the photo session. In the first picture I tried it on with a long necklace but didn't really like how it hung so I took it off. I like it better with just dangling earrings and a single bangle. You can probably tell by now that I tend to be a minimalistic when it comes to accessories.
I still really like the pattern and color of this top but am in a dilemma. Last week I found the shift dress on sale in my size! So I bought it. The question is, would it make sense to keep both the top and dress in the same print? Something to ponder about this weekend...
