All The Texture


Crochet Top - Urban Outfitters (Old)
Jacket - Vintage
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Converse
Over The Knee Socks - Primark

I feel like this outfit and my last outfit are very very similar.  I do apologize, but this crochet top is like, my fave thing right now.  I was wearing a leopard print triangle bra underneath, and I'm quite disappointed that the crochet completely drowns out the leopard.  As well, I'm pretty sure I managed to incorporate all the textures - crochet, lace, and these hole patterned over the knee socks - I know that there's a proper name for the holey pattern, I just can't think of it and it's annoying me.  Not cool.  I remember wearing tights like that to school in primary school - those were days.

This white lace skirt was a bit of an impulse buy, I'm not gonna lie.  I saw it and was just like 'I need that', discovered they didn't have my size after a hurried look through, then sped off to the till to buy the next size up.  Luckily, H&M sizing is NOT NORMAL, and their clothes all come up stupidly small - anyone else get this?  Like, it fits, I'm just not sure I like it.  Stupid impulse buys.  I think I managed to sufficiently toughen it up with the fringed leather jacket and converse though.  Also, I want to wear it to festivals but I'm 100% sure it will collect a few mud stains that won't want to ever come out.

  2. i'm totally with you on h&m's sizing, it's always a guess what size you'll be when taking something to try on! LOVE the skirt, and i love how you've mixed it up with the black lace and black accessories – toughened it up perfectly!

  9. I still don't know what size I am in H&M, I just listen to my heart I guess lol
    How can you not be sure about this skirt, I think it suits you 100% and I love how you made it look less "innocent girl". (p.s: not annoyed at all that you wore the same top as your last post, I love it too. I'd steal it from you if I could. Kidding, of course.)
