H&M Blush Circle Skirt and Ann Taylor Bow Sandals-4

I finally got my H&M blush circle skirt back from the tailor and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I had to take up the hem 8″! I wanted to save money and do the alterations myself but quickly realized the complexity of hemming a circle skirt. I decided it was best to leave it to the pros.

I mentioned in my previous post that this is the exact same textured fabric as my favorite white flare skirt from a couple years ago (see here and here). This year they changed the silhouette from a gathered waist flare to a circle skirt (reminds me of a poodle skirt). This years version has a LOT of fabric (almost too much). The before and after pics are crazy! It made a huge difference when I took up the hem. I’ve been wanting a blush skirt for so long and am happy with how this turned out. I love it and it has pockets – yay!

Should we talk about how amazing these bow sandals are? I didn’t think it was possible to love them anymore than I already do but after wearing them and taking photos, I realized how amazing they are! I was afraid the bow was going to be too big but they are the perfect size and shape. I’m still pinching myself and can’t believe I scored them for $55 (and in my size)! After lusting over them for so long, they are finally mine!

  1. omg the shoes are so adorable!!! Very Kate Spade-esque. How’d you score them for $55?

  2. The Bow heels are so classy! I keep looking at them online I’m obsessed! lol

  3. The quilted skirt is cute, and I like the jacket. Speaking of the skirt, I love it even at its longer length. The shorter length of the skirt just makes it a bit more fun. More importantly… those ankle bow sandals are as beautiful as you are. They look amazing and nicely compliment the rest of your outfit. Greatly styled here!
