Alright, I know this outfit is awfully Alex Chung-ish, but this skirt just oozes girliness. Go big or go home, I guess. And with that, part 1 of the Love Charles Vintage swap is now complete. Next stop for this package is Mousevox Vintage - I can't wait to see how she styles these pieces!

I love this. From the top, it's simple and even a little ho hum. And then you hit the bottom. The hi/low hem, the amazing tights, the shoes...all slight variations on a classic feminine style that's just ridiculously current. Serious love.

Those shoes are so chic! And such a lovely color, pattern, and shape they have. The tassels are adorable. I love how you're wearing such pretty white lace tights-- it's a nice take from all the black lace we see. :)

I love patterned tights, especially subtle ones like these. They complement that skirt so nicely.

Thanks so much for the comments on my blog and Chictopia! I really appreciate it. Personally, I don't think an outfit could ever be TOO Alexa Chung. Love the pretty, pretty tights and that pretty skirt! The little kitten heels are fierce as well!

Anna G said...

I was going to say your outfit reminded me of Alexa Chung. She such a great style muse right now. I love the girlish patterns on the skirt and the tights.

You do look a bit like Alexa Chung! It's a compliment though-- her style is very cute. I have been wanting to wear my summery skirts with tights, but the static is just ridiculous.
