I will be completely honest – I wasn’t a big fan of the graphic novelty sweaters/sweatshirts when they first started cropping up. Though I think they are fun, whimsical & look adorable on others…I didn’t feel that they were really “me”. Every time I tried one on, I somehow felt that I looked like I’d raided my daughter’s closet. But, when I found this style at H&M, I fell in love (no pun intended) with the relaxed fit & cozy fabric – it manages to feel girly & modern at the same time. Needless to say, I think I’ve found my new weekend uniform – you can’t help but smile when wearing a big heart + polka dots.
What I’m wearing:
First time seeing the currently trendy heart sweater/sweatshirt with polka dot pants! Fabulous pairing!

This is so adorable!! I love the heart top with the polka dot pants!
I wanted to order those pants, but my size is all sold out…sad.

I wore a very similar outfit this weekend (burgundy/pink polka dot jeans with gray sweater with pink heart). My hubby asked me if I was wearing pajama pants!
I felt the same way about the sweaters as you did, but this one is fantastic. It definitely has a modern, more "grown up" twist to the fad. Love the whole outfit, especially the necklace & polka dot pants!
Fierce & Fashionable

I agree with you on the graphic sweaters, but right when I saw your outfit I think I changed my mind. The way you styled it makes it look sophisticated <3

Love this!! I totally fell for the J. Crew version of this sweater – I love that I can wear it to work or dress it down for the weekend like you did, as most of the graphic novelty sweaters/shirts can't be worn in dressy situations. Love the polka dot pants!
Star White says
A few year ago I got rid of a sweater that looked just like this one! Drat! I love this look on you and you can totally rock glasses!

Adorable! Love the tops together!
I feel the same as you did in regards to the graphic print sweaters, but I do think you make this one work and feel age appropriate.
Chic on the Cheap
I love the graphic sweater trend. I've been looking for the perfect one and haven't found it yet. These pants are precious. I'm also a huge fan of the sweater + button-up + necklace under the collar look!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now says
Hearts, dots, and bows on flats… I am on LOVE indeed! Good thing you came around to this style, you look beautiful!
Pants are so cute, and I think that heart on top is such a perfect match. The way you put the necklace and those shoes with it makes it a great overall look.

Kimberly Mich says
LOVEEE this look so much. totally going to buy this heart sweater and pair it with polka dot pants b/c of you! 🙂
Carly | A Simple Affair says
Couldn't agree more about this trend-I needed to find something that worked for me and not just make an impulse by because it was becoming popularized. Absolutely love this look-beautiful layering!
Lauren White says
SO cute! I just ordered those pants; thanks for sharing! I love your blog!
I have also been unconvinced about this trend until seeing you in this post – that's a super cute combination here. I like how you pair it with the glasses (perhaps unintentionally so, I'm blind without my glasses or contacts so it may be more necessity?!) and give it a little playful sophistication too.
ps sorry to have been absent from commenting for so long I've had a crazy two weeks! Really appreciate you stopping by styleonthecouch too. Now to catch up more!
