Stripes make me smile, there’s just something about their elegance and their ability to go with so much. When I saw this skirt on ASOS I thought, “I’ve got to have it!” Sure, the description called it a prom circle skirt and I’m definitely aged out of that. But who cares, right? I already had on a prom skirt why not take this thing all the way? Big jewels, cropped denim, velvet, and some leopard – if only 2003 had been so stylish.
My love for stripes runs deep; my bridesmaids wore them for my wedding, I hunted hard and long for striped rug for Baby C’s nursery, and now this skirt. Plus an array of other goods – the universe continues to hook me up. The magic of black and white stripes is that it’s surprisingly versatile. You can pair with animal print as seen here, or camo, and even floral prints. Don’t be nervous about looking too busy – the pairing works perfectly. I recently bought this jacket and can’t wait to put the two together. The husband got this Clare V bag for me this Christmas and can you tell how much I love it?! It’s roomy, beautifully made, and the best finishing touch – a monogram. A purse made in heaven.
