summery stripes

I’ve always found skirts to be a fun, fresh way to mix up the ever-present jeans and a spring top rut, but finding ones that don’t give off the “I’m headed to a club in Miami” vibe can be pretty challenging. That’s why I was thrilled to come across this unique, striped little number from H&M… a darling, summery design paired with a great price point? Yes, please!


SKIRT   striped mini skirt   |   TOP   free people long beach tank ($20, 10 color options!)   |   SHOES   strappy wedges ($30!)   |   EARRINGS   hoop earrings   |   BAG   tan tassel cross body (old, similar linked)   |   BRACELET   turquoise cuff   |   BRACELET   coral bracelet stack

The soft, rustic shades in the skirt make it wearable with a million different top options… I love it with one of my favorite turquoise tanks (only $20 and comes in 10 colors) but think it would also look so cute with a cream off the shoulder number, or even a pale pink blouse! This is also one of those ever-lovin’ pieces you can dress up or down… switch into these sandals for brunch, and throw on high wedges and a blousy top for a night out.

H&M has some darling pieces online right now, especially this eyelet coordinating set and this tassel straw bag! Keep in mind sizing runs pretty small… I’m normally an XS and 0 in most things, but always end up in a 4 there. I’m wearing a 4 in this skirt, but almost wish I’d gone with a 6 for a bit loser of a fit! If you’re familiar with sizing at H&M, I’d love to hear how it works with you!

Love from Texas,
