chambray + OOTD + striped skirt + lace up heels

Striped Sensation

May 22, 2017

For all you Sex and the City lovers out there...remember the Paris episode with the striped dress? If not, here it is in all it's glory listed at #9 of her best looks. Well, that dress (among other things worn on that show) stuck out as a favorite for me and I have been on the hunt for a good striped skirt for quite some time now. And for those of you who have tried on striped bottoms I am certain that you feel my pain, in the sense that 95% of striped bottoms are not flattering. I don't care how thin you are, there is something about stripes on the bottom that just don't do it for me. 

But when I saw this skirt, with the full body, high waist with black band, pockets and a hi-lo hem I just couldn't resist.

I must say I am glad I didn't because this skirt was a total win. It fit perfectly, was flowy and comfortable and paired oh-so perfectly with a cropped chambray top. 

For a little pop of color I added pink lace up heels - making this one of my all time favorite outfits. It ended up being perfect for Maine Magazine's Cinq a Sept at Cellar Door Winery

I am honestly not sure how I survived without pockets in my skirts and dresses - truly a must have.

We're off to Florida for the week and I am looking forward to soaking up some sunshine, spending time with family and visiting my very oldest (length of relationship...not actual age) friend. Stay tuned on Instragram & Instagram Stories for more...
