The Tibi Mini Skirt

I know it's nothing special but for some reason I really love this outfit.

White skirt, black vest, chambray shirt and heels. That's about it but still, it's a nice mix of expensive/cheap and girly/tomboy.

I think there are two things that I would pinpoint specifically:

a) The textured Tibi mini skirt - it's a cute voluminous bubble shape with elasticated waist. Perfect for those big lunches/dinners. And it was massively reduced in the net-a-porter sale - can you believe this was originally priced in the £200 range.....erm, WHY? It's nice but...no, just no.

b) The shoes - FINALLY these have been made comfortable months after purchase. I love the way these Sam Edelman's look but comfortable they are not. Something about the metallic leather that just wouldn't soften until wear 20 but here they are and I am friends with them again. The chunky block heel, the metallic detail....they are perfect summer shoes. I quite like them in the bronze/darker leather...mmm :)

The shirt perhaps ruins the shape of the skirt slightly but it's my dress down comfort blanket and I couldn't give it up :)











Skirt: Tibi - Link! (very similar ASOS one here - Link!)
Shirt: American Eagle
Vest: BikBok
Lace bandeau: American Apparel (if you can make it out!)
Shoes: Sam Edelman - Link!
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: Elizabeth and James

On another note, a perfume one...(ha de ha)...L'eau de Chloe was my perfume of choice today. This was a gift and it's as pretty as the bottle makes it appear to be. It's apparently made with 22% rose water. The remainder of the notes include grapefruit, violet, cedarwood and good old patchouli. It's light, non-offensive and perfect when you are feeling clammy and sweaty.

...and the nail polish? Well this is the best Gelish colour I have ever tried.

Cue lots of exclamation marks...

!!!!!!!!

Next post tomorrow with the big reveal about the generic pale pink colour :)

Hope you had a good start to the week!

  1. Love your Celine bag - just pairs amazingly with EVERY outfit that you post!

    I have the Chloe perfume with the pale pink ribbon - haven't tried the green ribbon version yet - but anything with rosewater is a winner in my book.

    Can't wait for your nailpolish reveal - it reminds me of OPI Mod About You.

    1. The green is a little lighter i think...more hot summer appropriate. But having said that if you have the original I think you are set :)

  3. That's a fab shaped skirt and the shoes are pretty enough to make them worth the breaking in! I love my distressed denim shirt too and you've inspired me to wear it in a combo like this =)

  10. Very cute skirt!!!
    Am in the market for some new perfumes, might have to try the Chloe out as I like Rose notes (Gucci Rush fanatic). I'm also tempted by Estee Lauder, Sensuous, another bottle of the VIP 212 NYC scent and yet another Gucci, Guilty!
    So easy to spend money when I'm scent shopping, I can never buy just one. . .

  11. I was going to ask what that polish color was, AH can't wait to see what it is! I think I'm going to get relish or shellac before I head to Ireland later this summer :)

    Those heels are SO fun! I love the metallic silver of them, are they comfy?

    As for the 200 pound skirt...wow, who would ever pay that much? Great sale find! Love throwing a chambray shirt over any outfit, it instantly makes it more daytime casual which I love.

    Happy Monday!

  12. Love that skirt- my skin is so pale that I would need it in another colour. Love a good net-a-porter bargain though! x

    1. completely about the label. i spotted it at full price but would never been able to talk to myself again if I had splurged on what is essentially a white cotton skirt!

  30. Such a cute skirt! I'm always a bit weary about wearing white, I'm one of those people who when wearing white, is going to spill something! haha

  31. Ah we all have a dress down comfort blanket. Mine was a pair of expensive jeans that ripped at..the crotch. I wore them for an obscenely long time after they ripped. So comfy, I didn't give a damn!

    The Celine is very beautiful. I have to admit the first time I saw it head-on, it reminded me of a face with a zip mouth, and wings for the fold in the bag. It's quite pretty.. the structure, it's unique, a pretty face! with wings ;)
