Monochrome and Stripes

It's still definitely hot + still definitely sunny = ..obviously there's some logic to wearing monochrome today?!

Striped sheer top: H&M (another sale snipe at £5!)
Grey skater skirt: H&M
Black leather belt: Vintage

Although it's not showing in the pictures, the striped top is pretty sheer in reality. I really love mixing it with dense, thick materials - this skirt is a really 'weighty' piece, it holds a wonderful shape and falls very gracefully (it's almost beginning to sound human), and I just glued the look together with my vintage leather belt. How lovely. Now, can I get away with this very bleak outfit if I say I'm accessorising with my still turquoise nails..? Wicked, that'll do then..
