DENIM MINI SKIRT

This retro jean skirt is basically perfection!  I had to style it with my sheer polka dot top and thigh high boots for a fun and playful look.  Shop the entire look below.  You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

(Lisa Perry Top, Only Hearts Bra, Alexa Chung x AG Denim Skirt, Miu Miu Over The Knee Boots)

I wanted this skirt as soon as I laid eyes on the Alexa Chung for AG Jeans collection.  It was the perfect retro denim skirt that I had imagined so many times.  No one was making it until now.  I love the buttons up the front and the skirt has a really nice A-line silhouette, making it very flattering.  I wanted to make sure I got the right size so the buttons were not being pulled in any way.  I had to order two sizes and return one.  I sized up one size from my usual jean size to get this fit.  The smaller size fit, but the buttons were being pulled a little bit more.  Snag the skirt here while you can because it is selling out fast.  The other piece I wanted from the collection was the denim dress and I was also able to snag that.  I will be showing you the dress in an upcoming post so stay tuned.  I have a love affair with denim skirts and own another one that I love by Acne.  It is a completely different style and less retro than this one.  You can see how I wore it last summer with a crochet top and Chanel sandals here

I recently snagged this sheer polka dot top as well.  I had the top near the denim skirt when I noticed how good they looked together and from there an outfit was born.  The Lisa Perry top is something I had on my wish list for a while, but I wasn't sure if I really wanted to take the plunge.  I am not that into polka dots, but this top has some edge thanks to the black color and the sheer material.  I thought it could be a versatile piece and possibly be layered with dresses and other tops in the future.  It is made in the USA and I was very impressed by the quality.  I only own one other piece by Lisa Perry that I snagged a couple years ago.  It was a skirt and you can see me wearing it here with thigh high boots.  I am wearing a size 2 in the top.  You want this type of top to be looser and not as tight otherwise it will pull the material.  For other polka dot pieces I own check out this post where I wear Miu Miu polka dot sandals and this one where I wear a polka dot blouse. 

I was going for somewhat of a retro look with this ensemble, but thanks to the boots it turned out a bit sexier than I planned.  Somehow these boots look really innocent when they are sitting in my closet.  When I slip them on I realize just how sultry they are thanks to the high/low cut.  These Miu Miu boots are higher in the front and lower in the back.  I love that I don't have to deal with the lace-up detailing in the back.  There is just one tiny zipper and I am done.  You can see how I wore the boots in the fall with a burgundy leather mini skirt here.  The boots run true to size.

Of course I needed to wear something underneath the sheer top and almost all my bras are sheer.  I found one that wasn't sheer by doing a little digging.  This Only Hearts bra is actually one of my favorites, but somehow it got buried underneath some other bras and forgotten about.  I wore it here with a pajama blouse, leather shorts, and crazy wedges.  I think it really looks nice under the polka dot top as well.  I am wearing a size small in the bra.

On a rainy day I like to wear boyfriend jeans and my trusty leather jacket.  To spice up the outfit I wore a high cut bodysuit with cutouts and pointed patent pumps.  Shop the entire look below.  You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.
