Woobie + Stripes


Top: Final Touch, Skirt: F21, Shoes: Pour La Victoire, Bag: Paul & Joe Sister, Sunnies: Ray Ban, Watch: Gucci, Necklace: Flea 

When it comes to certain pieces that I love, I tend to be a repeat offender and I am not afraid to admit it one bit! This top, although very basic and simple, has been my companion and my woobie for a good while now (yes, I have lost my friggin marbles). It's my "go to", my comfy piece, my chic piece, ok it's my go with every occasion piece. It's totally normal to have a woobie as an adult in the form of a shirt, right?!  

Do you have pieces you wear repeatedly?

I'm a total sucker for the off-the-shoulder tops, too. They are my closet staples for sure. You look so chic, and I love your necklace!

Perfectly chic and classic..Love the little pop of red.

I think we all have pieces we run to that we know look good and are comfortable. I don't know what I would do without my solid black and white gap tanks and tshirts...I usually buy 2 if I love it in the fitting room because they are reasonably priced and I know I will LIVE in them ....

Kate said...

This is so effortlessly cool! I love everything about it! Haha, and YES, I have items that I wear allll the time, as demonstrated in my last post. My mind just constantly says "Oh, I know! I'll wear my blush blazer with this!" LOVING the striped skirt here, too - have been wanting a striped skirt for a while but not sure if these hips can handle it! ;) Looking gorgeous as always, doll!

Sheree said...

Why are we all so obsessed with stripes right now??? I don't know but I love the stripes and anything off the shoulder!
And yes we all have that one go to comfy piece..you are not alone my sweet :)

Closet Fashionista said...

TheChambrayCountess said...

I definitely do! I usually got through phases when I want to wear the same clothing item in different outfits for a few weeks. I love your outfit- a good one to have in the arsenal ;)

the nyanzi report said...

modanistajunkie.com said...

Who doesn't have pieces they repeat!! I'm the queen of repeating pieces, but like to do so by styling them and wearing them completely different so no one really notices. :)
I LOVE your skirt by the way.

mAdi*cakes said...

Those pieces you wear over and over are the ultimate! Everyone does that! I repeat this one black rope and tassle belt that I bought at H&M. Its super cute and I repeat my striped shirt so much, ill probably buy 2 or 3 once school starts! :]

You look so cute! I love the skirt!!!

Have a great week!
xoxo

knockedupfabulous said...

That top does seem like it works with everything! (No shame in wearing it often!) And LOVE that red bead necklace.

Seems like all my clothes are being repeated often these days...not a whole lot fitting in the pregdrobe department!

Alleen said...

Every girl needs the "go to piece(s)" and preferably in several shades. You look great, hope all is well! xoxo

Ashleigh said...

Yay for woobies!
White linen pants, every weekend. Guilty!!

Love the skirt! I've never heard of a woobie before, but I know what you mean.. I think mine would be either my jeggings or black skinnies. Always break them out and I never get sick of them.

I can't believe your skirt is from F21- so chic! I'm adoring the black and red combo and of course the satchel :)

Paul & Joe is one of my favorite French designers- have you seen the makeup line? The cat lipsticks are too cute!

Hahaha so cute! Layering on the "woobie" over the striped shirt is beautiful styling- and the pop of red in the necklace is gorgeous! So many of us are going crazy with colour now that just a single pop in an accessory like that looks so fresh and so chic. Love!

About Last Weekend said...

Learned lots today - especially the word woobie, one of my kids called it "MImi' realised later he was saying mine, mine. Yes I wear a uniform every day, same thing, then change and wear different outfit for next week. Also keep buying camel all the time...Love your outfit - you look fantastic!

PriscilaPetersDecor said...

I like this a lot. I guess, I'll be including F21 in my list when I go to the mall this week...

A Fine Balance said...

I love the phrase "repeat offender!" can i borrow from you?

and yes I have many an outfit I will wear over and over again...no matter if I wore it just the week before :P

sometimes its just that comfy!

Jess said...

Loving the off-the-shoulder look right now. Sexy but subtle.

Love the LOOK!!! The shoes really compliment the outfit. Another Winner for sure.

Ramona said...

Absolutely effortlessly chic! You look gorgeous!
Yes, I have those pieces in my wardrobe which I chose to wear now and then. I think it's basic of every wardrobe to have them, beacuse otherwise ridiculous to have full wardrobe with clothese which can't be mix&match.

Kavery said...

Shasie said...
