Playing with Stripes





Shirt: J. Crew (old), similar here and here (and on sale!!) //  Skirt: Forever 21 (old), similar here (and on sale!!) // Shoes: Converse // Bag: H&M, also love this // Necklace: Madewell (old), similar here // Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old), similar here // Rings: Madewell (old) - similar here , H&M -also love this
Just like how matching pieces are trending right now i.e. denim on denim, white on white, same 'pattern' on same 'pattern', I decided to play with my wardrobe without going too crazy. I love to wear stripes. Everytime I see a striped top, shirt, dress, skirt, my eyes gravitates to it, and I end up making the purchase. So when I went through my wardrobe to create matching pieces, naturally I went for the stripes. I figured since the top is Chambray, I can't go wrong... right? I feel like Chambray goes with everything! Plus, I used different fitting to make this look work (crossing fingers it looks okay...). I used a bodycon skirt with a loose shirt. On a bad note, since the bodycon skirt is so form fitting, you can see the seams of the tucked in shirt through the skirt. I guess next time, I'll try to find a tad bit looser skirt. Have you guys tried to create your own matching pieces? How'd it turn out?!

  3. This is one of my favorite uniforms - a chambray top, a fitted skirt and sneakers. It's so casual and effortless, but looks so put together at the same time. You, my friend, are absolutely rocking it all! So happy I could stop by and see all of the beautiful inspiration that you are spreading to others, including myself.
