Stripe Week - Skirt




Get excited - it is STRIPES WEEK!

A pretty decent percentage (no, I didn't do the math) of the tops in my closet are striped, but I'm a firm believer that stripes should not be limited to the torso.  A black and white striped skirt is a very versatile piece, so I was happy to add this one to my closet in the spring (for only $7)  It's safe to say this will be a staple going into the fall and winter, as well.

This jacket is another item I'm feeling pretty smart about.  I bought it back in 2011 on super clearance, and it was a total impulse buy.  Now camo is having a moment and an almost identical jacket is going for $78.  I'm going to pretend I'm a visionary for buying my jacket 2 years early.

Come back every day this week for another outfit featuring stripes!  I'm going to try to challenge myself by doing different color combos, but you may see black/white again, because it's just so easy!  You should also stop by A Journey in Style to see what Kate is wearing.  Then remember to link up with us on Friday!

  4. I love the layers and pattern mixing in this. It's so great when trends come around again and you still have the items in your closet. Great jacket!

  5. Isn't it crazy when you find something you really like, and then it becomes really popular down the line? That's at least how I felt when I bought my cobalt skirt two years ago. And hooray for black and white stripes!

  6. Love this look! The camo print looks great with the striped shirt, and the shirt is so neutral that it really makes the look work. I'm excited to see all your outfits this week and to link up again on Friday!
