Lingerie et parfum

lil' lou lou jivin' skirt

I hope your week is going well so far! The snow has melted since I snapped these photos (the weather has actually been really nice for the past few days), though I'm sure that won't last for long. But if I have to venture out into the cold, at least I can do it in outfits like this! I'm totally obsessed with this skirt from Lil' Lou Lou – the print is of vintage undergarment advertisements! – and I ended up really loving this whole ensemble.

I featured two other Lil' Lou Lou pieces last month in this post, and while I really like both of them, I have to say that this skirt is definitely my favorite. It seems to be made of a slightly heavier cotton than the other Jivin' Skirt I have, and it fits me like an absolute dream. I don't own a lot of navy blue (I've just never really been drawn to it for some reason), so coordinating this outfit was actually a fun challenge. I finally got a chance to wear this Erstwilder perfume bottle brooch, and I brought out an older pair of shoes I completely forgot I had! The thing I love most about fashion is that it gives me a chance to think creatively, and I really have a blast putting pieces together. (Is that weird?)

I totally think it's a good feeling and fun to be creative with new colours in fashion, I also can't believe you forgot about those shoes, they are AMAZING!

  3. Lovee the colours in this outfit! The brooch is so cute too.
    Aren't your feet cold though?! Haha.

  5. Girl, I just got some shoes for Christmas so similar to that! And I love how you matched them to your outfit. My goodness, look at you, trudging around in that snow. You're so brave and a super snow princess. D: <3

  6. I love this outfit! That brooch is so much fun with the lingerie themed skirt! I know exactly how you feel about putting together outfits. I love having fashion as my creative outlet!

  7. The print on this skirt is just so unique and fun! I love the light blue shade paired with the darker blue top too. You look gorgeous, as always!
