Matching coordinates, two-piece sets, matching separates…whatever you want to call them, it is no secret that I have a thing for them! I refer to this pair as my “Pasadoble outfit!” For those of you who do not watch Dancing With the Stars, get with the program – just kidding! The Pasadoble is a fierce and march-like dance, modeled after the Spanish bullfight. A traditional women’s costume consists of a dramatic full skirt. Now do you see the connection?!
This dynamic duo is currently on sale at H&M for under $40. No that is not a typo! It was love at first sight when I laid eyes on this stunner. The black and white embroidery is just gorgeous and the fit is even better. The ultra high waist slims your frame at the right spot then tapers down into a flowing skirt. Maybe it is the riverside setting, but these matching coordinates might just be my all-time favorite.
I styled this look very simply. I wanted to keep the black and white theme going on so I laced up my knee-high gladiators and toted a beaded bucket bag. The embroidery on the purse is just different enough than on the top, that it creates an aesthetically appealing contrast and dimension. I rocked wood jewelry with this ensemble…it just seemed to go and natural wood is a neutral hue in my book.
