One of my biggest inspirations for my blog and just for my life in general is Man Repeller. From Leandra's bold and infectious style to the dancing with the mailman, its everything I want my blog to represent. A total judgement-free zone full of bold choices and good shoes. So, when Man Repeller gave bloggers the challenge to style an H&M piece for the chance to win a mentorship with Leandra herself and a nomination for the Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the year, I ran to H&M.
I found this beautiful tapestry looking sleeveless top, so I styled a "chic grandma goes to the city" look. Clearly I love a pair of flared jeans but for summer I swapped out of my full length denim for some Free People cropped flares (shop). I cut mine to hit right below my calf for a super flattering look, your ankles will look skinnier than ever before. I threw a Gap button down (shop) around my waist to break up the long line of the top, when you are as temperature confused as I am its always safe to have an extra layer hiding somewhere in your look. These platforms (shop) are amazing, they look just like Stella McCartney's but are about $900 less. Mine are two sizes to big but that was a risk I was willing to take, I buckled about 200 times while out in this look but it was worth it. My summer staple is Princess the Purse, I haven't left the house without her since I adopted her. The iridescent shine of the bag makes it fit any look, and the circular hardware coordinated nicely with my round sunnies (shop).
