Vertical Stripes



Having just come back from the West Coast (where everything felt relaxed), I find myself craving looks with a little more polish.  This outfit is the perfect blend of casual (chambray + stripes) and sophisticated (sparkling necklace + pointy pumps)...the ideal solution for those days when I want to get dressed up without going over the top.




What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 shirt (similar), ASOS skirt (on sale here), Mossimo pumps (similar), Forever 21 necklace (similar), Target cuff (similar), Mudd glasses (on sale here)

Girl that skirt is so chic! I love a good stripe. They can make such a great statement w/out being over the top! :)

I love the chambray-with-pencil-skirt look. I wore my chambray with a shorter white pencil skirt, but untucked and with a neon belt over it. It was one of my favorite outfits of the summer!

Loving your look!! That shirt is exactly what I've been looking for!

styleonthecouch.com said...

I saw this look on pose and really liked it so I'm pleased to see this full feature here. I find that I sometimes crave relaxed / chic after spending too much time in one 'mode' too. My summers in Ibiza you'll find me in shorts and tee and then as soon as I get home I'm back in my sharpest dresses!

I recently returned from Seattle, and I feel the exact same way! I'm craving a dress up occassion. I really like how polished this look is.

Love this look so much I'm considering buying this skirt. Can you tell me if it runs big/small? All they have is an 8 and I'm usually8/10 so i don't know if I should just take the chance. I love it though! Hate that ASOS has no customer reviews! I'd really appreciate it!

Kimberly said...

Hi Jill, I would say the skirt runs true to size or maybe a little small, so you should be fine to order the 8 (and if it doesn't work out, returns are free!)...hope that helps! :)

Jill said...

thanks, I ordered it in an 8! I love their free return policy! I have a ups store a block from my apt and i swear they must think all i do is order and return ASOS items..her again! ha. You have great style and I one your blog.

If I had that skirt, there is a chance I would wear it 3+ times a week!
