I almost didn’t buy my H&M sleeveless top considering I am a little self-conscious about my arms.

But it was only $15, and my man gently reminded me how many ways I could style it for only $15 dollars.

He was right-

I may not have been excited about the piece,

but it was definitely an investment piece!

Not only could I wear it as it was intended.

I could wear it as a tied blouse.

I remember it being almost unbearably hot this day.

So the ability to tie up a light blouse was a perfect outfit!

But the real reason I bought the top was because it was a perfect layering top.Β 

I could wear the blouse under a jacket.

I could use it as a modesty top.

This top can be too low-cut for many situations.

The polka-dot top adds a cute modesty element!

I could also do a peek-a-boo layering.

By not tucking in the top- I got a cute relaxed layering.

An unconventional use of the top.

Lastly I could use the top as a collar.

I layered the top underneath this skater dress to add a cute collar.

I can’t recall how many times a collar came in useful to make an outfit feel more work appropriate.


Looking back, I definitely think it was a good investment.

That is six different ways to use the top.

That doesn’t even take into consideration the different ways you can style it!

Do you have a different way to use the top that I haven’t thought of?

Which is your favourite outfit?!
