Three Ways: H&M Jacquard Midi Skirt

May 5, 2016

I ordered this midi-skirt in white jacquard from H&M ($59).  I was fairly impressive with the quality and style.  It did run a bit small in the waist.  I also like this semi-sheer organza skirt from Topshop.  And for a slimmer option, River Island wrap skirt.  Plus-size?  Alfani midi-skirt in white lace.

321 Short Sleeve Sweater ($170) // Majorica Pearl Stud Earrings ($90) // Sole Society Vaughn Clutch ($14) // Candice Kitten Heel ($118)

For work, I went with a classic, Audrey Hepburn look.  This snug short sleeve sweater is the perfect topper for the fuller skirt.  The proportions cause a figure-flattering balance.

This white Kate Spade sweater would look lovely, as would this navy Jack Wills pointelle sweater.  For accessories, I added a pair of pretty pearl earrings, a simple kitten-heel sandal, and a patterned clutch (can you believe it’s $13?!).  If you would prefer flats, try these pointy toe black slingbacks from Sam Edelman.

For the hair, I would try a sleek chignon.  I would also add a pair of retro sunglasses and some red lipstick.

Boden Essential Boatneck ($29) // Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant ($79) // Capri Leather Wedge ($90) // Street Level Slouchy Tote ($56)

For the weekend, I added this boatneck stripe tee from Boden.  It’s a good quality, well-priced essential.  The long pendant balances out the stripe, and is one of my favorite pieces.  (I probably wear the Rebel necklace four times per week.)

Another casual options is a chambray shirt.  Gap has a cute sleeveless option.  If you don’t like chambray, a crisp, blue oxford is always a sleek choice.  The red wedges add the perfect pop of color to the outfit.  For a closed-toe option, try this Nine West wedge.

For the hair, I would try a teased, bouncy ponytail.  I’d finish the look with a crisp summer perfume.

Elizabeth & James Crop Top ($79) // Kendra Scott Turquoise Earrings ($63) // Schutz Juliana Caged Sandal ($190) // Cork Box Clutch ($88)

For play, I chose a crop top because the skirt is high-waisted.  A bit of spring color never hurt anyone, so I brought in a turquoise earring and coral sandal.  The colors pair well together.  I also like this Schutz Maggie heel with tassels, in a fun berry color.

I also liked this ABS cross back crop top.  For something with sleeves, try this grey JOA crop.  If you want an evening look without the midriff-baring crop, try something like this Tibi Bibelot tank.

Finish this look with a bit of pinky coral blush and a coordinating lip color.  For the hair, I recommend a messy, twisted updo.

    I like the look for work, but even for my “creative” office, those sandals read evening to me, instead of work. I’d go with something that’s more shoe than foot- like the pointy flats, a simple low pump, or even ghillie lace up flats instead

    For the Boden top, would you tuck it or leave it out since the skirt is high-waisted? This is what always makes me choose dresses over skirts- I never know what to to with the end of the top!

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
