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!

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!
