i love all of the fashion forward floral items h&m has been producing for their trend line lately. i've tried on a couple of different shapes and patterns and most of the items fall into that category of clothing that's a longish shirt or a short short dress. this piece was an exception. it is long enough to wear confidently as a dress but because of the tighter hem it can be folded under and worn with skinny pants or leggings. it may not be the most fashion forward piece i tried but it still had an interesting shape, fun ruffles, pockets! and a black contrasting bodice. plus, it can be worn both belted to define the waist and loose and blouson. a bonus is that it looks great with my blue platforms, i love these shoes so much, and my yellow pedicure.
