* A Beautiful Friendship *

Hello lovelies! 

Ok. We are fast approaching the end of March - when did that happen?! It feels like only last weekend I was celebrating the New Year, and now we are almost into April... Wow! I'm a little sad that March is almost over as it's my favourite month. Not only is it my birthday on the 26th (only 6 days to go - whoop!) but I always know that March will bring the lighter days and the warmer weather; I can already see the start of the summer flowers beginning to show their pretty little heads!
Anyways, onto my outfit! I first noticed this white skirt last year in the ASOS sale. It struck me as quite a unique piece, and I was initially drawn to the net detailing on the hem. I didn't purchase the skirt immediately however I began to imagine all sorts of outfits I could create with it - a white skirt in summer is a necessity!  

Electric Sunrise - Black Lace Top

OOTD - Style London Lace Black Top
 (Black Lace Top - Style London / White Skirt - Warehouse @ ASOS / Stud Clutch Bag - Primark / Black Heels - New Look / Watch - M&S)

However once the ASOS parcel arrived through my door, I had some second thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I think the skirt is lovely (I did decide to keep it after all), but I find it particularly difficult to style. 
I recently received this black lace top from Style London, and I was delighted to discover that the two are a perfect match. I'm always a fan of monochrome outfits, as they never fail to look smart and, oh so chic! I'd been waiting for a classic top like this one to come along and match my awkward skirt, and now I've found it! These two are very content with one another and I believe it's the start of a beautiful friendship. 
Have any of you got an item that is particularly hard to style? How do you think I should wear my skirt next time?  Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! 
More soon, 

Helen

  22. Looks great! I just brought a white dress recently and happened to try it on with black tights (I was too lazy to remove) and was impressed how it looked. Usually I'd think you can't do black tights with white but it works well.
