Tassel tee

Shopping in California was endless, and while I had a mixture of days when I felt I should keep my wallet shut tight and days when I rationalized that I was on vacation and should buy what I pleased, this was one shirt that stopped me in my tracks. I spied it through the window of an H&M in Santa Barbara and simply could not resist going in in trying it on.

Once I felt how soft it was and saw that the tassels gave the slightest swish when I moved, I was sold. Conservative enough to wear to work, but still fun and really not too big an investment at under $20. As far as how it will hold up in the wash, well I haven't ventured that far yet.

  1. I will freely admit - I am struggling to understand the appeal of the tassel trend. Or at least I had been, until I saw this tee on you, because quite frankly, it is adorable. I'm not sure I'm going to get really excited about wearing tassels myself now, but I do look forward to seeing you style this again - and really hope it washes up okay...!

  2. That top is so fun!! I approve of that purchase, haha!
    I'm hoping I don't fall into the vacation trap while I'm in Aruba...because those buys will be things I wouldn't be able to wear much at home! Ha ha.

  3. Very cute Lydia - I have been making huge attempts to hold back in shopping the latest trends and am looking for stuff from the closet that can be adapted. For tassels, I have a few I purchased in Morocco that I may add soon to something, anything!

  4. We are twins today! I'm totally wearing that exact tee in my post, haha. Don't you love it? Such a great H&M score. You look super cute, lady!

  12. I have that top too and LOVE it! I haven't washed it either because I'm disgusting a rarely wash my clothes. Haha!


  13. I love when the embellishments on a piece really make it exceptional! I think you could have told me you bought this for twice as much and I'd still think it was a good deal!!!

  18. If I have the opportunity to shop while on vacation, I definitely have that "I'm on vacation, who cares!" mentality... dangerous. ;) I think that tee was so worth picking up--the tassels make it so fun, but the neutral colors make it so versatile and wearable. Great find!

  19. Earlier this Spring Old Navy had a similar fringe gray tee I missed out on. I love this one you have even more and hope my H&M has it. Also your shoes are gorgeous. Such a polished, elegant look yet a little fun and with some pizzaz. I featured this beautiful look on my blog today, Lydia. =)
