Lookbook: Mixing and Matching for Different Outfits

I love to mix and match different clothing items to come up with new oufits. Here is what I came up with. I paired my new H & M ruched shoulder charcoal blazer (see previous post here) with my H & M black/gray skirt (see post here)and Ann Taylor floral front shell in dark basalt.

Jacket: H & M Charcoal cropped blazer- size 2 (similar HERE and HERE)
Skirt: H & M gray/black skirt- size 2
I just love this skirt but couldn’t find anything really similar to link it to:(  As far as accessories go, I went light on it because there is so much going on with this oufit. I just kept it simple with my Chanel earrings. I love how this Blazer fits. The length is a cropped style but on a petite, it’s a perfect length! And the cut is made so that it’s fitted in the waist area and not a straight cut like most jackets.

I love coming up with different outfits because it makes me feel like it’s a brand new outfit when its really not. The Ann Taylor floral front shell is a bit big for me so I have to pair it with a blazer or cardigan.
I really wanted it in dust mauve like Alterations Needed- see her post here and Extra Petite’s post here. They both have the beautiful dusty mauve in XXSP which fits much better. But I had no choice and it was by chance that I found the XSP in the store and I desperately wanted it so I settled for the XSP. It’s astonishing to me that XXSP sells out as fast it does! I’m hoping Ann Taylor brings this shell back out!

  1. Aww, too bad the dusty mauve sold out! It's quite irritating how they don't stock more XXSP's. I'm wondering if you can try shrinking the XS, but then again the petals are really delicate and probably won't last through a machine wash/dry.

    You look very professional here…the grays from the H&M pieces coordinate well.

  2. Hey love!!! 🙂

  3. Hi ABD! I am so sorry! I was revamping my layout and my computer went crazy and deleted all my giveaway links:( Now I can't remember all the ones I had before so thank goodness you let me know! It's now on my sidebar! I hope I win…:)

  4. I really wanted that dusty mauve shell too! But it was already sold out 🙁 I also like to pair charcoal with black… I think it looks understated but sophisticated!

  5. I didn't see this on my dashboard of blogs. I can't believe I missed an outfit! I am in love with the H&M blazer! I am going to look for it for sure!!! 🙂
