stripes + cobalt


I love when I dig into my closet and rediscover something awesome I forgot about like this pleated skirt. I’ve worn it maybe twice and I realized it would be the perfect skirt to wear with a little cropped top on a hot, humid day. I added a denim vest and simple heels, perfect outfit to hit up the Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale and dinner with friends.

    What a fun look. Midis are always great with crop tops – it's the perfect combination!

    random question because I'm in love how you wear heels on a daily basis: how do you manage to wear them all day long, and how do you wear them without feeling overdressed?

    I can't say I've ever forgotten about a piece I had in my closet. I rotate stuff in and out a LOT. But I'm glad that you found this skirt! I love that the pleats mimic the stripes in the shirt, I hope that was on purpose ๐Ÿ™‚ This outfit is so cute and the vest makes it WAY better!

    Love this look! I like how you took the midriff trend and made it still every day appropriate. Too bad us 90's kids don't still have our duds and if we did they wouldn't fit but they would be in style! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi! Love the outfit. I am wondering what size you got the skirt in. American apparel is funny. I want to buy online, but I'm worried I'll get the wrong size, and this item is final. I wear large in pants and medium in the one skirt I have. What do you recommend?
