Orange Crush

Happy Hump Day everyone! Two more days til the weekend!

Yesterday I was browsing through my local H&M and I noticed it carried the H&M+ line. After walking around in the section for about 15 minutes I wasnt impressed with the collection at all. It had all the typical colors (black & white) and nothing remotely trendy. I was about to turn to leave when a rack of chinos caught my eye. The rack had navy blue chinos (of course!) and ORANGE?! I blinked twice because its rare to see orange pants for plus size women hanging on a rack. I immediately grabbed the largest size (24) because I know H&M pants run small and I knew I wouldnt be able to get into a size 20 pant. I’m so glad I got the 24 because they fit comfortably and aren’t snug or tight. The waist was too big but it was nothing a belt couldn’t solve. I love the melon orange color of the pants. It’s not too bright or too light. It’s a perfect color to match with prints and pastels. I paired the slacks with my orange print tie neck blouse that I had buried in my drawer. I added my bright blue blazer to for a pop of color. I am very satisfied with my first H&M+ purchase.

Have you checked out the H&M+ collection yet? Have a great evening!!!

    I love all of these colors together. I keep saying I want to buy pants that aren’t jeans…and then i don’t. I love the fit of these.

    I love those orange pants! What an awesome blue blazer too! They don’t carry plus sizes in the H&M near me however I was told that one does about 15miles from me. I may have to hit it up this weekend! 😉

    Love the pants. I tried on the green ones, but the 16 was a little tight and the 18 was huge so they stayed at the store.

    I was reading the description and admit I didn’t expect to like the outfit but when I scrolled down and saw it, I said Yeah! The outfit is very well put together and you look wonderful!

    These colors are amazing together!

    I haven’t had a chance to check out the H&M+ line yet, as they don’t carry it in Northern California, just southern. Hopefully soon! There were a couple of blush (I think) suit pieces, particularly the blazer, and a few tops that I’d love to try out.
