stripes strike again






Yes. Stripes again. I couldn't help myself though. I recently got this gold embellished brocade print skirt at Forever 21 and loved how it looked next to my striped t-shirt dress from H&M. Match made in pattern mixing heaven.

My first instinct for layering (as we're supposed to get a huge storm that promises power outages!) was to grab for my black boyfriend blazer, but rethought it once I spotted my trench coat on the bottom of a pile of clothes. Lately, I've been rocking the trench a lot more and love how ladylike and reporter-esque I feel in it.

Finally, I am about to commence the video fun for the hair tutorial, in t-minus 5 minutes once this curling iron heats up. Be afraid, people. Be very afraid.

Happy Wednesday!

Shirt: Black and white striped t-shirt dress, H&M
Skirt: Gold embellished brocade print skirt, Forever 21
Tights: Black sheer tights, Target
Shoes: Black cage heels, Beacon's Closet
Jacket: Trench coat, Old Navy
Sunglasses: Vintage Donna Karan cat eye sunnies

  33. You have just about given my enough encouragement to go to F21. I never see all the cool things that others see there and thought it was because maybe ours was no good. But obviously I just need to look harder. You are so right about the stripes and the trench. can't wait to see your video too!

  34. Oooh. I'm excited to see your tutorial! Great skirt!

  35. Amazing skirt. And I'm a sucker for a good trench. This makes me wish I'd bought the striped top I was contemplating. It would look great with the trench I have.
