Maxi + Stripes

 Sweater: Zara, Tank: UO, Skirt: Topshop, Shoes: Sam Edelman, Bag: Vintage Gucci, Bracelet: J. Crew, Necklace: c/o Good Carma Studio

 Besides the heavy leopard storm that I am currently going through, I've also been hit by a strong Stripe front (imagine that....perhaps I could be the fashion weather forecaster too?!). I've been buying striped everything right down to my chonies and socks! I scored this Zara Knit on sale for 20 bones and it's so cozy...paired with the yummy soft jersey of the maxi skirt and I was in serious business. I figured in this outfit I had 2 choices: 1. Hit the town looking chic (and feeling comfortable) or 2. Hit the couch looking chic (and feeling comfortable). Versatility at it's best!

Have a fantabulous weekend all!

I am so with you on the stripes.
I don't know what it is that attracts me to them, but everywhere I go I seem to be drawn to anything stripes.
Also I know this is really random, but I love your sandals, they are just the kind I have been searching for, for years without luck.
Hope you had a good day no matter if you went to town or the couch looking tres chic ;o)
