Hope everyone had a fantastic Holiday weekend! I went after Christmas shopping but didn’t find too much which was kind of a bummer (but may be a good thing for my wallet). But what I did find was this infamous H & M lace skirt that everyone has been raving about! I actually found two of them which was a miracle! Usually I only find one size 2 in any skirt but I think it was fate that I found an extra one!
Sweater: J.Crew Merino Placket Cardi in Ivory- size XXS (buy here)
Pin: LOFT flower felt pin (bought on ebay)
Belt: Ann Taylor Perfect Patent Skinny Belt- size XS (buy here)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simple 100’s- size 5 (buy here)
This photo was taken in my upstairs reading alcove near my loft. I am trying to test out different areas in my house to see which has the best lighting.
See this skirt on Kelly and Elle. They both look great in it! Leave it to AN to find this amazing tiny skirt! I was amazed at how perfect the fit was. Usually H & M skirts are a bit wide on the hips and through the thighs but this was narrower. And the waist fit PERFECTLY! I got an extra one and already shipped it to Vicky. I can’t wait to see her in it!
I know black and white are so boring but I love the color combo. It’s simple and clean! I added the Ann Taylor black patent skinny belt because I wanted to break up the lace a little bit. And I am so obsessed with their XS belts! I thought it was impossible to find a tiny skinny belt that fits my waist! It’s much easier to find thick stretchy belts that fit.
I didn’t think I could wear this to work but I am wearing it today and love it!
The length is so perfect, hits right at the knee. I think any shorter and it may look a bit less conservative. Since there is so much lace going on, the longer length definitely makes it look less racy (if that makes any sense). I would probably wear this with black nylons but mine had a run in them and my black tights were too opaque so I went bare legs for this post.
Some similar lace skirts I found was the LOFT scalloped lace skirt, and this Forever 21 lace skirt. I had about 5 minutes before work to snap these off so sorry they are not great photos! I will be getting a nice camera very soon so I hope to give you nicer photos and videos!Here is the back of the skirt so you can see the fit. I think the fit is great, what do you think?
