Outfit | Black loves white

If you’re like me and can’t part with your summer clothes, it’s good to have some nice jackets and blazers on hand. You can still wear your short sleeved tops and shirt when you throw a cute little jacket on top.

DIY ruffled pencil skirt

When I saw this pencil skirt in the Burda magazine I knew I had to sew it. A ruffled pencil skirt with a draped detail is totally my thing.

One skirt, two ways

I bought this pencil skirt a while back at Zara, but it just sat in my closet, not knowing what to do with it. Once I’ve finally found the inspiration to create a look with it, it was enough to create not one, but two outfits. I’ve paired the skirt with two tops that I’ve made myself using patterns from Burdastyle.
