I try not to be too trendy when it comes to my style. I love classic pieces and incorporating a trend or two in my looks. Some trends last for a season or two while others turn in to classics (hello leopard print). So one of the major trends of Spring 2013 is stripes, particularly black and white stripes. I love this trend. I’ve dedicated a few posts to this trend (check them out here and here). So I’ve been on the hunt for a black and white vertical stripe blouse because I refuse to pay $80 for the blouse at Zara.
Anyway, this look was inspired by this trend. I paired my favorite faux leather skater skirt with a mixed stripe long-sleeve shirt I remembered I had in the back of my dresser drawer dedicated to casual tops (my organization is sick). Anywhoooo, here is the look.
What I Wore
-Black and white mixed striped shirt from Old Navy (purchased many seasons ago)
-Black faux leather skater skirt from Asos
-Black pumps from Brash
-Black cross necklace from Charming Charlie in Florida
-Blue Bowler hat (pictured below) from H&M
