H&M Top | H&M Pants | H&M necklace | Sunglasses | Zara Belt Bag (similar) | Sole Society Heels

When I spotted this top at H&M, my eyes locked in on it like an eagle on a field mouse. I love the tapestry-like material, serene colors and the crane print. And speaking of prey, my father-in-law once had a love for birds. He picked up taxidermy when my husband and his siblings were young. They’ve shared stories about watching him work and “restore” various types of birds, which he proudly displayed in the garage. We’re not sure where he learned this craft, however it’s permanently left an impression (i.e. phobia) on my sister-in-law. So just a warning: Choose your hobbies carefully because it could affect the lives of those around you. Lesson learned; we’ll stick to watching the birds in the park or the ones the disgruntled drivers give each other while driving in rush hour traffic.

    I have this exact same crane print but in dress form! I like the texture of the top, and the color is definitely more subdued than the dress that I have.

      If it’s the same dress I’m thinking of, then is it the pink one? This print is so unique, I had to have it right when I saw it!
