When the season of blousey skirts, big sleeves and ladylike details comes to a close, I’m going to be oh so sad. There’s something timeless and lovely about the feminine silhouette of a beautiful maxi dress or midi skirt that will always draw me in. Even at 5’2″, I love the look!
I have been so impressed by the styles H&M has been putting out recently. It’s become my go-to destination lately for that look. The retailer has a knack for creating luxury looks at an attainable price point… my weakness!
Take this skirt, for example. The first thing that caught my eye about it was actually the woven belt. I’ve been on the lookout for an affordable style for months and immediately envisioned all of the different ensembles I could wear it with!
Not only is the belt fabulous (it doesn’t have a clasp, FYI, it just loops through the buckle) the classic, the tailored skirt is right up my alley. I love the thought of it paired with a cute smocked top to give it a younger, more fun feel and later on paired with a creamy white sweater and a leather belt for a chic all-white winter ensemble.
Last evening, right in our backyard, I pretended I was strolling the streets of Florence on a warm spring night. Until we can travel again, make-believe will do for now. And lovely outfits help!
