My lightweight crepe jacket was already a steal to begin with, and is now 50% off! If you’re unfamiliar with H&M; sizing, it runs small like most European brands compared to American ones (a size 2 in H&M; often fits smaller than 00 in brands here). This airy layer goes with so much, from casual outfits like this one to more professional pairings, and I’ve also worn it over a dress to a wedding. As mentioned before, I had the sleeves shortened along with the overall length, but the latter isn’t necessary for someone my height. In hindsight I liked it better longer, and have an older variation of this jacket which you can see on me in the original length.
I often try to share pieces to share that fit right off the rack, but a lot of time my favorite finds are items that just need small adjustments. I know a lot of people are deterred immediately at the mention of alterations, but having a tailor who can do basic alterations (or learning how to do them yourself!) can really open up your wardrobe options. For me it’s worth it to spend extra on tailoring pieces I know I’ll wear over and over again. And with affordable items like this one, even with the cost of tailoring it can come out to less than a typical jacket.
I haven’t shopped at Old Navy in a while, but usually find some great accessories there around this time each year. This scarf is soft and cozy, and the rectangular shape and size is manageable for blanket scarf beginners.
I’ve gotten more questions on my Topshop jeans, and I agree the sizing is confusing! My original review of these jeans are back in this post. This particular style is a good length on me with regular shoes, and with higher ankle booties require a cuff. As a reminder, I’d recommend sizing up since Topshop jeans usually run at least a whole size small for me compared to other brands.
