OOTD: Stripes & Polka Dots

Well readers, you can tell when I love something because I wear it a LOT! Yes, I'm wearing this skirt again but I decided to mix it up a little and throw a print with it. I thought the stripes would be a good counterpoint to the polka dots and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Plus, the sequin detail and my shoes add a little sparkle to the look.

Details...
J.Crew Drapey Bateau Tee (still in stores), similar here
Anthropologie Peppered & Striped Skirt
Forever 21 Floral Print Tights, similar here
Nine West Heels, similar here
And some good news...we finally found a place to live! It will be a few more weeks before we can move in but it's such a relief to have that done. ;)

Love the horizontal stripes with this skirt...and those little sparklies on the shoulder are just too cute. It's good to see how much wear you're gettting out of your skirt -- definitely a worthwhile purchase.

Congrats on finding a new place! I can't wait to see how you decorate it to really make it your own!

That skirt looks great with stripes! Adorable!

My store still has my size of that skirt just hanging out taunting me behind a rack of other skirts. I don't know if I can stay strong much longer!

Another great outfit combination! I think this means my brown striped Curated Tee would work with this skirt :) You've given me great ideas so far!
