Well, readers, it’s day 21 of no shopping, and I must say, I am missing my resaling! But, I only have 9 days to go, so I’m pretty sure I’ll make it at this point…I hope so, at least! Anywho, I wasn’t planning on blogging this outfit, because I really wasn’t sure if the top would work out. Netted top? At work? Well, turns out that netted can work in a professional setting. I guess you just never know until you try. Happy weekend, readers!
Top: H&M ($3 marked down from approx $25)
Pants: Ann Taylor Loft ($14 marked down from $60)
Shoes: Aubrey Brooke at DSW ($12 marked down from $99)
Necklace: vintage via resale ($6)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) The “kids” section at H&M is surprisingly versatile. Once I got through the toddler section, I found that there was what seemed like a “teen” section, with sizes through 15 + years. The prices are, of course, lower than the adult sections. I found that the leggings and tights were WAY too small for an adults, as were the pants, but the tops definitely seemed like a better bet. The jewelry is also an easy bet in the “kids” section, as they have long necklaces that would clearly fit an adult.
2) As I mentioned, I was on the fence about a netted top at work. However, when I added a neutral top under the netted sweater, the netting looked less …well, netted. One way to style this top for a weekend would be to add a complementing color underneath instead of a matching top. As with netting, the same seems to go for lace. If you’re going to wear a lace top at work, consider adding a matching top underneath the lace to make the top seem less sheer. This is a good way to style a top that you can wear to work, and on the weekends!
Anyone else have juniors’ section shopping tips? I hope everyone had a good weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Love the top 🙂
YES!!!! I love pink and polka dots! And great job doing your 30 days of not shopping. I need to try that one day!
LOVE the top! And YAY! Only 9 more days to go – you can absolutely do it! 😀
So obsessed with your style. Netting can definitely work in the professional work setting I see you nailed it on the head! I remember doing that last year! I lasted for a few weeks, however I’m currently in a no buy phase now! Stay strong hehe, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I just wore polka dots too! 🙂 🙂

And yeah I’ve shopped once in the kids section when the shopkeeper looked weirdly at me and said adult section doesn’t stock spongebob and marvel comic T-shirts. Er..hello..they became such a rage few months after that. Ha! In your face shopkeeper 😛

I love your tips so much. I was wondering how to wear a lace or netted top, but wasn’t quite sure how to make it look more professional. This helps so much. Thanks!

Wow more power on your shopping ban….you can absolutely do it! And I’m completely in love with that cute top!!!
Oh gosh girl, you’ve got this! You made it past day 21, theres no stopping you now. The sweater looks great and definitely office appropriate. Pink is your colour!
As for junior shopping, I do it all the time. I go thru the boys and girls section to pick up things like layering tank tops to solid color tee’s. Not for pants, though. It’s absolutely mind blowing sometimes the difference in price points. I also cruze thru the men’s sections too, sizing can be a bit tricky so patience is necessary. But the price makes it worth it 😃
Oooo excellent point! I need to try that!
WOW lady, looking fabulous in pink and polka dots. Congratulations on making it to day 21, and on making that top totally versatile! You’re an inspiration to us all. Have a fabulous week ahead!
XOXO Nensi & Natasha
