I have been more inspired to wear dresses and skirts lately. I enjoy the fun break from the monotony of jeans I typically wear. This weekend when I went shopping with my friend Jackie (of The Revolving Table, check it out it's great!) we got a bunch of good deals. Her more than me ;) One of our last stops of the day was H&M. This store is very hit or miss for me. Some days I love everything in there and other days you could not pay me to wear their clothes. Sometimes I think I am getting a bit too old for their target customer, but whatev I am rockin' the under 30 bracket for as long as I can.

If you follow my blog regularly you know I am not much of a pattern girl. Maybe a subtle pattern here and there but nothing really bold like this. I mentioned a few posts ago that this blog has encouraged me to take more fashion risks. Now, I am not exactly falling off the edge of fashion here but this is leaps and bounds for me. "One small step for man, one giant leap for Meg." It helps to shopping with enthusiastic and complimentary friends :) I put this dress on and loved it immediately. Despite the kind of crazy pattern the colors are relatively muted. I also so happened to be wearing my fav new Sam & Libby boots, which looked great of course :) I paired it with some delicate layered necklaces I also bought at H &M. Oh and one more hting that's great about this is that the cotton is very light weight, which means this will transition beautifully into spring and summer. I can already see myself pairing it with some great gladiator sandals can't you? Can you tell I have spring fever? Ugh and it's only January.
