crochet pencil skirt

Have you ever pictured a clothing item in your head, but can't find exactly what you are looking for anywhere?? This happened to me the other week with the ever-elusive crochet pencil skirt ;)

It all started when I was scrolling Instagram one day and saw @jesssouthern post a picture wearing the cutest spring outfit...observe...

(ps...if you know Jessie James Decker, this is one of her good friends and her makeup artist - go follow her immediately, she is gorgeous and hilarious)



 Anyway...after I saw this picture I became obsessed with creating my own version of this cute denim/crochet combo! I knew in my head exactly what I was looking for, but it proved to be harder to find than I thought it would be!

I was looking for an off-white crochet pattern (leaves/flowers) that was a pencil skirt style and could be worn high-waisted...that way I could wear a cute chambray button up and tuck it in or knot tie it in the front. There were cute ones all over the internet, but all sold out! Literally every time I thought I'd found one that worked, they would be completely out of stock! Even the ones I could find were only left in XS...came in the wrong color...or were mini skirts instead of midi. 

This Forever 21 option would have been perfect...and was only like $22...but alas, it was sold out.

Finally, I stumbled upon this Bobeau skirt on Dillard's website. I can't even remember the last time I bought something from Dilliards...maybe 9th grade?!

The second I realized they had it in my size and the color I wanted, I ordered it right away! (It is lighter in person than pictured - more off white rather than beige *see below) 

It just arrived yesterday and is PERFECT...and I already have the denim top, so now I just need an occasion to put my little outfit combo together and share with you all! xx

  1. This happens to me all the time, I've always said I need a personal seamstress to create the clothing ideas I have in my head, but can't seem to find in real life!
