criss/cross



Jacket: Zara (similar style here); Shirt: Zara; Skirt: Asos (love this similar skirt!); Shoes: Miu Miu (have been eyeing this similar pair for a while) Bag: Zara (similar style here); Sunglasses: Fred Flare; Jewelry: J. Crew chain necklace, Michael Kors watch, assorted gifted bangles, bauble bangles c/o Bauble Bar


After Monday's print on print ensemble, I figured I would keep the momentum going, this time with something a bit more subdued. The obvious choice? Stripes on stripes! A bit of a Carrie-in-Paris moment, no?

Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!
