Colourful Spring Outfit: Layered DIY Lace Skirt and Men’s Oversized Blazer


It’s a relief to finally shoot this outfit. I’ve tried three times and it just ends up pouring down with rain every time . The sun finally came out and stayed so it was a great opportunity not to be missed because I had already planned on giving up trying to shoot this outfit.I thought it was the reason why it probably rained lol..



The first time I had thought and put this outfit together was back in autumn hence the dark  colours you mainly see in this outfit, worn with the shoes, handbag and even my lip colour. The inspiration behind this layered outfit was a styling picture I saw on the H&M website. The model was wearing with a long lace skirt worn over denim which now is slowing becoming a trend these days.



I like that look and the layering style from H&M very much so I decided to create my own version. I’ve had this lace skirt for a long time but stopped  wearing it. I took scissors to it and removed the nude nylon lining and now I have my own lace skirt. It’s a little shorter than I would have liked but I love the detailing on it and best off all, its costs me nothing [well, it did at some point but you get the idea ].  The oversized ‘boyfriend’ blazer you would have seen it here in this post. I wanted to wear this men’s blazer without a belt so not to over crowd the gold button details but I looked completely drowned by it as it was obvious the cut, size and fit was clearly not made for me. Adding a belt gives it a feminine and structured look and fit which pulls everything in together nicely.

The bright colours were there to breakup the dark colours on my top half. Adding colourful accessories were the easiest way to bring some colour without adding more garments to this layered outfit. I had a silk scarf that matched the colours of the whole outfit but I don’t know what happened to it. Looking back, I don’t think I needed it as the beautiful freshly blossom flowers in the background came through for me.
