Stripes + Camo

T by Alexander Wang denim shirt
Zara camo espadrilles

A striped pencil skirt has been on my hunt-list (check my “Current Picks” in the right column of the blog). There are many options out there ranging in pricing, color, and width of stripes, but I wanted to start off with this basic, super affordable option from Forever 21 to test the waters and see if it’ll become a wardrobe staple. Next time I’ll show you a more dressed up look with this pencil skirt!

Also, if you want a hint of camouflage without going full G.I. Joe, I strongly recommend getting the print in espadrille form as I wear mine all the time. Camo is like the casual leopard print — it’s basically a neutral and goes with everything.

    I have a jacket like this but had not been sure about how to style it but your outfit inspired me. I also love that this outfit works with your casual shoes and can also be worn with heels. You look great!

    I completely agree! Camo and leopard are neutrals. I am a sucker for leopard…by far my favorite print. Lately though I have been loving camo a lot more. This look is total perfection!

    If you get a sec, I would love to get your thoughts on my latest
