H&M; Divided tunic dress w/ tie belt, sz 4, $14.95 (Item # 058904)
H&M; Divided cross body bag, $17.95 (Item # 568146)

I know this outfit is eerily similar to my last one, but I wanted to show these affordable finds while they’re still in stores. While at H&M; last week, my eyes were drawn to this vibrant print with yellow, purple, and brown. The pattern is summery, however the colors are perfect for transitioning into Fall (yes, I’m eagerly anticipating Fall dressing). There’s also a mini skirt and a maxi dress available in the same exact print.

This tunic is generously cut, but shapes up once the belt is tied (petites will have to wear the belt higher up than where the string loops are). A sz 4 was all that was left at my local store. It’s big on me and I’m wearing an undertank to prevent peeksies. I’ll be sure to slim the sides once I have access to a sewing machine.

Layering with my Target chambray top (similar here in Petite sizing)

Here are the true colors of the dress and bag (love it as a clutch!), under natural light:

I promise these Suede Chunky Heel Sandals mark the end of my yellow fever (as reader “a rose” so aptly put it). I need more yellow shoes like I need a hole in my head, but the combo of suede and wood is unexpected, and the quality is fantastic. The color is more muted and mustard-y than in this pic. Only sz 5.5 was left, but they actually fit (all the other pairs I’m keeping are sz 5). Update: Due to the elastic heel backing, you really need your true size on these, or size down if you’re between sizes. I thought these fit great despite being half size up from what I normally order, but the heel strap slips a little. So sad! I’ll review more Talbots shoes later. Readers – please share how your orders worked out if you shopped the secret shoe sale as well!
