Who needs flowers when you've got frills and flounces? H&M gives the statement shoulder a softer edge with the romantic ruffles on this cute coral cardie.
The overtly frilled shoulders remind me of flamenco dancers and flowers in full bloom. Just looking at it makes me happy. It's from H&M's Divided range and, with the current 20% off promotion, it's £15.99 instead of £19.99 - a small price to pay for happiness! The fabric - a fine cotton knit - is a little on the cheap side, but I'll luxe it up by swapping the buttons for something prettier. And, if coral's not your colour, it also comes in grey and black.
This latest purchase was inspired by my sweater with the frilly shoulders (again from H&M). I've been wearing it a lot lately and have been thrilled the frills receive so many compliments - I love how it's kept me warm while looking stylish. Hopefully, these new ruffles will be a hit, too.
Happy Valentine's Day!
