H&M V-Neck Jersey Top

Awesome fall fashion find: the $12.95 H&M V-Neck Jersey Top

H&M is totally my jam right now.

There’s a store at the Northgate Mall about 10 minutes from here, which I guess is both a blessing and a curse, haha!


Sometimes I’ll walk in there, and the sudden barrage of stimulation — the loud music, the excess of cheesy faux fur, the wall-to-wall racks all jam-packed — is too just too much for me, and I’ll walk right out. But other times, I’ll walk in and it’s like the budget fashion heavens have opened up, and it’s raining cute clothes. πŸ™‚

That’s what happened when I came across this V-Neck Jersey Top.

H&M  V-Neck Jersey Top

Imitation Leather Pants by H&M ($34, currently available in stores and online), Necklace by Kate Spade (no longer available), pearl studs and blue spiked bracelet by designers I can no longer remember, unfortunately; lipstick is MAC Relentlessly Red Retro Matte

First off, it’s only $12.95, which DUUUUUUUDE, is about the same amount as a soup/salad combo with a large iced tea.

Second, it fits like a dream. The top is flowy and forgiving, but not so flowy that you could make an extra shirt from the excess fabric, and the 3/4 sleeves keep it from looking like pirate gear (yargh, an issue I have with some flowy tops, matey!). The pin-tucks in the shoulders and the buttons also keep it from looking boring.

And then there’s the length. I like that it’s slightly longer in the back because I think it looks cute worn untucked with leggings. but it’s just as adorable tucked into pants, too, which is how it’s styled on the model at hm.com.

It does seem to run a little big, so you might want to size down.

And for my fellow lazy gals, guess what? You won’t have to iron (YES!). I usually just wash mine on the delicate cycle (kind of a must with H&M stuff, which isn’t always super sturdy), hang it up to air dry, and that’s that.

I ended up liking the top so much that I went back later for more. At $12.95 for these, you don’t have to spend a pirate’s ransom to update your wardrobe. πŸ™‚

The H&M V-Neck Jersey Top is available in a few different colors and patterns now at hm.com, but you might also want to check the store if you live near one, because they may have some additional colors. The one by my house also had light pink and cream, which were also very cute.

You know it’s fall when…

…your most exciting plans involve watching new episodes of your favorite TV shows. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to watch the The Mindy Project and New Girl tonight.


Speaking of that, did you happen to catch The Voice last night?? Wasn’t that last audition by James Wolpert the sh*zz? I got goosebumps, girl. Homeboy can EMOTE!

A’ight, I’m out. Hope you had a great day, babe. I’ll see you at the top of the hump.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    You look hot && that shirt is awesome πŸ™‚ I just finished watching Mindy; hands down my fave line in the episode was when she said “…….. gottta get rid of that stray hair on your breast….”!! hahaha i almost spit out my wine! Happy Tuesday night girl!

  3. jo says:

    so cute! Did you get size XS? Or S?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jo,

      The shirt I’m wearing here is XS. I also have the polka dot version in an S. They both fit well, but I think if I had more muscle on my shoulders and biceps, I’d go with the S.

  6. Ruchita says:

    Cute outfit! There is an H&M in the mall about 10 minutes from my work. It’s been hit or miss before, but I’ll have to check it out again.

    I hate ironing too, but I recently bought a steamer and it so much quicker and easier than breaking out the iron.

    • Karen says:

      Ohhh, I need to know about this steamer. What’s the make/model?

      • Ruchita says:

        The name is kind of funny – My Little Steamer – which makes me think of the My Little Pony theme song. πŸ™‚ I got it from Bed, Bath and Beyond using one of those 20% off coupons.

        • gina says:

          I have heard so many good things about “my little steamer”. A lot of times i’ll just bring in ashirt with me to work ( a retail store) and just use the steamer we have there!!! πŸ˜‰

  7. I love that outfit! I actually have faux leather leggings from the LC collection at Kohl’s that I’ve never worn… I know, I know… but I’ve been so ick that I haven’t ventured into them yet!

    That shirt is awesome – it might even get me to switch out a Tshirt! But, seriously, I’m not sure how it got billing over the leather pants. Were you really trying to sneak those by? Oh, nothing much, just wearing some LEATHER PANTS. Very cool. πŸ™‚

  13. Steph says:

    One, you look FIERCE in those pants Karen!

    Two, My folks LOVE The Voice, I just never to into it. Apparently that James kid is from the area I live in here in PA. My Facebook feed has been a twitter about him :o)

  14. Kim says:

    You are super skinny and praying magically I could look close to that good I just ordered the shirt before it sold out! Love the outfit posts as I’m awful at picking out things especially being a stay home mom who rarely gets out to shop without chaos. Ps on ur Rec I picked up the UD revolution lipsticks (anarchy and fbomb) love so much going back for two more!

    You’re near Northgate Mall? I’m about ten minutes away from there as well!
