Slanted Stripes

My beautiful boyfriend was sweet enough to buy this superb black denim zipper skirt for me. Is it wrong that I rather get something like this rather than flowers? 

Wearing H&M skirt and shirt, vintage Chanel bag, and Bakers heels.

I am such a picky person, so hardly anyone buys me clothes because they never know if I'll like it. And yes, chocolate > flowers! Flowers look/smell pretty, but I rather have the sensation of dark chocolate melting in my mouth!

I love your blog. This outfit is just amazing!
It's a pity that the H&M stores in Germany don't have such beautiful clothes like this skirt.

Not wrong. At ALL. I love the skirt! I wish I had an H&M....

The vertical lines make you look taller too, which is always a good thing, yes?

Aesthetic Transfixion said...

I love the buttons and zippers on the skirt!

Ida said...

Sweet! I was checking out the same skirt at H&M the other day but thought it was too hard to pull off. Now I am fascinated with it looking at you. Like always with your outfits.

MHBass said...

that skirt is fantastic!

Style Maven said...

totally agree! its impossible not to repeat outfits with this horrible hot weather! hopefully it will cool down and soon. i cant wait for tights and chunky sweaters! love the H&M top.

Robine said...

that skirt is amazing!
from witch collection of the h&m is it? divided, trend??

landis smithers said...

darling girl,
we all know clothing lasts longer than flowers, has fewer calories than chocolate, and makes us feel better than either.

the only thing better than clothing is diamonds.

and puppies.

and sex.

that's it. get the bf to give you diamonds and puppies and sex.

LEESH said...

oh my gaw. that skirt is so badass! the zipper detail is fabulous- your boyf has the greatest taste loveyy. lucky girl! those shoes are exactly like the chloes that i want! uhhhhhhhh
perfection.

Mattie said...

they have that skirt at h&m. i'm getting it.

thanks for giving my your 2 cents on the boots. you're super nice.

btw, i purposly looked for the boot with the lowest heal. i can't walk in heals.

laters babe

rahpunen said...

hablas español? what a surprise!
those shoes are lovely!!

Richel said...

we're both wearing off the shoulder striped shirts in our posts! I think you look much more fab though!

Melissa said...

Ahh this skirt is so lovely, as is your top.

vintage-trendy-glam said...

Nautical top + high waisted skirt + chanel handbag = Love, love, love !!!!

Sarah said...

Haha! My boyfriend is the same. He calls me a clothes hoe. -__-" He knows I prefer him getting me clothes and accessories cause I dislike getting flowers. The best part is when your bf knows exactly what you would like... Lucky right? And yesh, CHOCOLATE is good.... MMmmm.....

beccajanie said...

That is some good taste by a bf for a gift! Nice! Looks so cute with that top and bag as well!

entirely official said...

love the h&m skirt. the high waist and zippers are very cool.

Clara said...

I'd take clothes over flowers or chocolate anyday!

Anonymous said...

Lydia said...

You have an awesome boyfriend! He must be a very fashionable man himself, or just know you way too well. This is just such a great outfit and the photos really capture the spirit of it!

That skirt is so hot! Your lucky to have a boyfriend with such great taste, and who needs flowers when you can have clothes? (or shoes in my case)

I love your look, it's my first visit to your blog.

P said...

He he - I like the face you're pulling in the first photo! Its so funny (not in a bad way - you always look cute). Your boyfriend really gets your taste in clothes, which is awesome, because there's nothing worse than receiving clothes as presents that you know you'll never wear! (well, I'm sure there are many worse things...like being mauled by a rabid dog...but, you know).

coco said...

I adore the stripe tee!

... asiu ... said...

you're such a gorgeous girl! love all your outfits:*

Dakota77 said...

What an great boyfriend you have:-). But I cannot complain myself, my hubby maybe don't buy me clothes but often shows me something on the rack saying that it will suit me:-).
I absolutely love your skirt, it makes me want something with zippers really bad:-)

Tinkerbell and fairies said...

very sophisticated look!! Very unique too!

Marina said...

Love zippper clothes. Your skirt looks great on you!
I think that you need to try it with high zipper boots and romantic shirt. Anyway you rock this skirt!

naomi said...

amazing.
absolutely love the skirt!

Anonymous said...

that skirt looks WAY more expensive than a H&M piece. i hope it comes over here to London!

think this is the first time i've commented, but i'm loving your blog, Karla. i'm just setting mine up - hope we can swap links when i'm ready to go!

I am happy that someone is wearing that skirt since it's just simply amazing. Just from another point of view, I feel like this outfit is a little too busy -- with such a very trendy skirt and a trendy shirt. Try one trend at a time. Love your style though :)

Lovely skirt Karla, how lucky you are!

It's just so fun. But i do looovvveee yours too. Now i can't decide!

Tout de Noir said...

Cette jupe! Trop cool!!

Modelizer said...

your style is incredible, is that h&m shirt recent? I'm mildly obsessed with it and must find it. I've also been debating that skirt since I first saw it, it's so good for being h&m.

Q8 fashionista said...

aww that's sweet of him..i love the skirt :)

nostyleboys said...

I really really like this
there's something very classy about it
maybe the chanel bag haha

i absolutely love the skirt. Your boyfriend has great taste. =] you're a great inspiration!

karla said...

katlin: Ugh, I’m extremely picky and it’s started to get me in trouble. Everyone fear buying me gifts because they’re scared I won’t like it- I’m really not that bad!

ida: You shoulda bought it!

mhbass: H&M indeed :)

lisa: Ha! Imagine it that were actually possible?

josipa: Aw, you’re sweet.

style maven: Chunky sweaters, tights, and scarves here we come!

robine: It’s from the regular collection- not divided.

landis smithers: This is going to sound really weird, but I am actually not that big of a fan of diamonds. Freaky, I know.

rahpunen: Si, mi mama es Mexicana y papa es de El Salvador.

anon6:31: It hits about 2 inches above my knees.


anon6:42: Love the song, love Keri Hilson- she seems like a very likable person.

lalatragickk: Ah! Thanks!

p: You made me laugh :)

katherinelou: Yea I got it like two weeks ago. The reason it’s so loose is because it’s a size 10 rather than a size 4 (usually my size).

modelizer: Yea! I got it like two weeks ago :)

fashion is poison: Great minds think alike ;)

anon7:34: Mhm, got it at a flea market.

Aliliisa said...

omg, that skirt is just amazing!!! i want one too!!!

I have to ask, How do you tuck your tops into your skirt without it looking tacky ?

Francesca said...

omg. i have to tell you that i just can't get over this outfit. it's so sophiscated and the shoes. the shoes. haha. where did you get the chanel bag? very cute indeed. i was also wondering if you would like to exchange links? =]

Natacha said...

You are very beautiful, I love your style.

Loan said...

They only had 2 or 4 sizes at my h&m, and size 4 usually fits me, but I thought I was gonna die in that skirt (I got to close it though : )
Looks awesome on you!

nelly said...

I have that exact same skirt! I was wearing it yesterday actually. It looks way better on you than on me! I think my is a bit too large for me and definatly too long (yours seems shorter : did you do anything to it?).

I will try to wear it with a loose top next time.

Thank you for the inspiration (you look stunning).

Nelly.

A great deal of effective info for me!

The diagonal buttons is what really does it for me here. Just adds that little flare that beings the outfit to another level.
