I just snagged a lace skirt exactly like yours (Target brand, maybe Mossimo?).......
Anyhoo, would you possibly do a post on what you like to wear with the lace skirt? I am considering a faded denim skirt, but that almost seems so obvious.
Honestly, I forgot all about this skirt, until Reva reminded me. I hadn’t worn it since February, because, even though it’s adorable, I find a little difficult to style. The elastic waist, while comfortable, is unflattering. The skirt’s “pooch” is emphasized by knit tees and tanks. In the winter, I obscured the waistline with sweaters. For summer, the only viable option seems to be a woven shirt. Denim, if you’ve got it. (I don’t. But light blue and white pinstripes are a close visual approximation.)
Shirt, Converse One Star (thrifted). Skirt and bag, Mossimo. Sandals, Aerosoles. Earrings, No Boundaries. Necklace, gift from The Magpie’s Daughter (I’m sorry his sweet little owl face isn’t visible in the photos!) Rings, vintage and shopgoodwill.com. Slave bracelet, vintage.
I wore my shirt knotted and tried to love the elastic waist. No dice. Next time, I’ll wear the shirt untucked, unknotted, and maybe belted.

If you’ve got this skirt, how do you style it? Do you tuck your top in? Obscure the elastic with a belt? Embrace the pooch?
