a spring stroll

There’s nothing quite like finding a piece of clothing that perfectly reflects the season, day and mood you’re in. Mid-April feels like a whole lot of breezy polka dot peplum tops to me, wouldn’t you agree? This delicate blouse was just what a lovely stroll outside, on the way to lunch at one of my favorite Tex Mex spots, called for.

If you can’t tell by the pictures, the polka dots aren’t just a print… rather, they’re tiny fringed appliqués! A darling, expensive look that appearss far nicer than it’s $30 price tag!

I stopped into H&M last week and proceeded to make a huge haul… that’s why you’ve been seeing so much of the store  on my blog this week! Unfortunately, I’m quickly learning that H&M sells out quick. This top in particular doesn’t seem to be available online, but I’d recommend checking in-store. I’ll keep you updated if I see it’s restocked!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

  4. H&M has some great gems, but you’re right .. I wish htey didn’t sell out so quickly online! Probably because they’re offering great deals on adorable things! What a cute “lunchin'” outfit this is!

  8. Your top is too adorable and I love that you paired it with pale pink pants instead of a white pair, which I think makes the whole outfit even cuter!
