It's a quick lace on lace outfit today! I was struggling initially to choose what to pair with this pencil skirt, and in the end I thought well.. why not a bit more lace? I'm rather happy with the result. I'm not sure if I'd wear this in the day, as the bralet is a little more skimpy than I'm comfortable with for day-to-day attire, but I'll certainly wear it on a warm evening this summer!
This skirt is surprisingly comfortable and un-restrictive (is that a word?) thanks to the slit up the back (really, how ugly is the word 'slit'... but what else can I call it?) I also added a pair of beautiful pointed courts from Daniel Footwear, which I must say are supremely comfortable. I've started calling them my 'adult' shoes as they remind me of something you might wear to work in an office. That makes me sound terribly childish doesn't it? But honestly, who hasn't ever bought something and dubbed it their 'date dress' or their 'grown up shoes' - I feel like it's just a way of making what might be considered more 'basic' items seem more fun!
I finished off the outfit with these beautiful dappled sunglasses by Stella McCartney which were very kindly sent to me by Pretavoir. I'd had my eye on them ever since seeing them on Miranda Kerr. Obviously I put the usual logic into practice; if I have the same sunglasses as Miranda Kerr I will likely become Miranda Kerr. Still waiting..
