The (Updated) Classics

 Leather jacket: H&M Icons Collection (old), T-shirt: Target, Lace pencil skirt: Thrifted, Heels: Zara (old but fab pair here), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Mansur Gavriel tote

I came across this thrifted skirt recently and I almost passed on it since I figured I wouldn't be able to wear it for a while (plus, who knows how it would look on my "regular" body). But, I decided to try it on anyway (part of my "never say never" mantra I've mentioned here and here) and lo and behold, it actually...worked! 

Typically, I'm not into the look of a shorter lining under a skirt but, I was fairly fond of this one. The lace pattern intrigued me and I don't own many white pieces either. With such an unconventional skirt, I've kept most of my look pretty clean. The result? Updated classics.

  6. Absolutely splendid! So glad that you decided to give it a try. I have the same mantra--especially when thrifting. You always gotta try it on. I love the way that this looks! Your bump just gets cuter and cuter!

  7. I think this new look suits you beautifully, very chic and very complimentary to your body. Love the combo of white lace and black leather <3 I am on the other hand, a fan of skirt with shorter lining and i think it works its magic xx Lovely heels as well xx

  19. nancy,
    This is so stunning on you! You do not even look pregnant in most of the pictures. Love the black and white, and the lace skirt in particular ! I too, don't often like half linings be the lining covers what it should and will be cooler for you this summer!

  23. This is such a good look! Thrifting is the best- it allows you to try so many different looks without investing a lot of money into it. That's how I discovered midi skirts and now they're a staple in my wardrobe. And those shoes! I love the lace-up look that's all over this season. Just such a great look all together!
