Sweater H&M also in white here // Boots similar here // Black Coated Jeans (currently 30% off) // Bag Michael Kors // Tom Ford sunnies
Another great sweater find at H&M. I remember the buzz and excitement a few years ago when the first H&M store in Arizona opened at the Scottsdale Quarter. It was all over the local news, and the reporter was so in awe of their sweaters, she could not believe the prices. It's still hard to believe the prices. They are so on point for high fashion. Even if it's a "flash in the pan" kind of style, you can't go wrong when the prices are this good.
The cold shoulder sweater featured here is just $29.99, it also comes in white. It has a cable knit pattern running through it, and sits at the hips. It's not too bulky, and it's soft and comfortable, not itchy at all.
My girlfriends were talking about hiding the parts of their arms that are starting to give up the ghost. We call it "bingo wings" in England, that sagging flesh that hangs like a bat wing when you hold out your arms. Or you wave at someone, and your wings wave too! Then there's the crepe skin that prefers to shift it's whole mass southwards when your arm is pointing northwards!
So, the cold shoulder top is the perfect style for us midlife ladies. The little bearing of shoulder and arm is oh so cute, and gives away none of the above. Whoever invented it was a genius!
