Top: Forever 21 Polka Dot Top (recent, sides slimmed) - S / $17.80 (so cute!) (love this bow print)
Shorts: H&M Wool Scalloped Shorts - 2 / $40 (similar
Watch: Michael Kors "Small Runway" (MK5430) - $127 (buy

I've been wanting scalloped shorts for months now so you can imagine my squeals of delight when I noticed these scalloped shorts at H&M yesterday.  Although I was a little afraid of the light oatmeal color washing out my pale legs, they're actually not too bad.  And I could totally see these shorts as being super cute layered over black tights when the weather gets colder too.  While the outside material is all wool, there's a great inner lining that makes these shorts safe for those of us that find wool itchy {me!}.  I was originally on the fence about keeping these shorts when I first bought them, but turns out that I just bought one size too big {that's what I get for skipping out on the 30-minute wait for the dressing room}.  Lucky for me the lady brought out the last pair in my size out from the dressing room just as I was walking out the store.  It was destiny calling my name.

  15. So pretty....love polkadots! And did you slim the sides yourself? There are so many F21 tops that I like but they are so freaking wide and am going to learn how to slim the sides of tops with my new sewing machine! Those shorts look great on you- keeping?

  16. i did slim the sides myself!! slimming the sides of tanks is actually one of the easiest alterations that i can actually do, lol! i basically just wear the top inside out and pin where i'd like for it to be (or get Adrian to help out). then i just draw a line and connect all the little pins and just sew! super easy. :)

  17. oh yes, and i will be keeping these shorts.  the size 2 fits much better than the size 4 i had originally bought.  i think they'll be great for the wintertime over tights!

  21. Love the shorts! They are especially adorable with those heels. :)

  22. I saw those shorts the other day, but I wasn't a fan of the material at all - like you said, the wool's irritating (although I guess the lining does make it better). But they look super cute on you! I'm definitely tempted to go back to H&M during my lunch break tomorrow and give them another try...

    ReplyDelete
  23. i noticed that you were wearing some pink H&M shorts and they look super cute on you! i have no doubt these these shorts will look amazing on your darker skin tone! definitely give them a try. :)

  24. Super cute! I love this outfit. I might have to hunt the shorts down as I love scalloped shorts and these look perfect!

    ReplyDelete

  30. Went to H&M yesterday afternoon, and they only had sizes 10 and 12 :( I'm going to be keeping my eye out for these though!

    ReplyDelete
  31. for sure! hopefully they'll restock. :)

  32. This blouse is perfection. Ahhhh. Beautiful. I want one!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just thought I'd let you know I just tore through the F21 site and there's no such blouse or anything similar to be found :( Oh boo! haha!

    ReplyDelete
  34. oh F21...  they change their inventory so quickly.  i found this top in the store a few weeks ago and actually didn't even see it a week later anymore when i went back.  :\
