Lady Grey

12.01.2012


Mossimo pleated maxi skirt
Xhilaration cable-knit sweater (similar here), 
Brooklyn Industries wool hat (last seen here), 
Vintage giraffe-print belt,
Forever 21 clutch (similar here),  

Micol was a bit shocked when I wore this outfit to work one day. I must admit, it's not a look I would usually go for, but in the true spirit of fashion, I decided to experiment and try out something new. And in the end, I really like the result!

A long sweater layered over a simple maxi skirt (both great Target finds of mine) lend the look a lean silhouette, while standout accessories like a wide vintage belt and one of my new favorite winter hats dress it up a bit and add a lady-like feel. Before we shot this Micol was not necessarily on board, but after looking through the snaps we took, I'd like to think she had a change of heart...

  19. It might not be your regular style, but this looks so amazing on you! I love the belted maxi sweater over the maxi skirt. And the hat is the perfect touch. Always great to experiment -- especially when it turns out like this :)
