So I treated myself to a little shopping spree last week (and took the hubs last weekend!) and almost passed out when I saw this skirt at H&M; it was perfect!  It was everything I have been looking for in a skirt these days - great color, pleats, midi length, tiny waist, great for twirling and best of all, only $13!  I decided for its first outing, I would polish it up with some ladylike polka dots, pearls and patent Mary Janes, and I love that it ended up having a bit of a 40's secretary vibe!  The only problem with this skirt: it's too fun to wear and I didn't want to take it off!!

  7. the skirt is AMAZING!!! and when you linked to H&M, i almost crapped myself thinking they had an ecommerce site!!!!! oh, well, still better than the few rando catalogue pages they used to feature!!

    p.s. i'm doing a StyleMint giveaway this week! You should stop by and enter. One of the Olsen's shirts would look mighty cute with that skirt!!

  17. I came over here today and I almost passed out when I saw this skirt! Just like you did in the store. It's everything. I mean, I really really need it. I hate that I can't order it. I really don't like my local H&M. It's janky and hard to find cute clothes. Also, they never have what I'm looking for. Sigh. I guess I'll just have to admire it on you.

  36. Oh well HELLO miss feminine chic' - This is such a darling outfit, and that pop of colour mixed with the demure polka dots make it a winning outfit. Not to mention the price - you literally can't go wrong. Now excuse me whilst I'm off to find my own perfectly bright skirt for my wardrobe, you've inspired me!
