Wine, stripes, and blue

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Earrings: Forever 21 (option) | Necklace: Express | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (other colors here, option, option) | Top: Express (similar to Light Blue) | Bracelet: Tasha (option) | Skirt: Express (option, option, option) | Shoes: Sam Edelman (option, option)

As you guys read this, I will be in the Carolinas! I had a site visit in Easley, SC yesterday (Greenville area) and today I'm in Charlotte. I just love the Carolinas. For the longest time, I wanted to live in Atlanta because it is gorgeous and everyone is SO friendly. But then I visited Myrtle Beach and I realized it's very similar, people wise, to Atlanta except there's a beach! So I decided I'd retire in the Carolinas. I'd still have a house in St. Louis though for baseball season. Naturally.

So, like I said yesterday, while I'm gone, you guys are getting outfits I wore a couple weeks ago but never posted until now. This outfit was easily thrown together because I swear anything + this skirt makes an outfit. Don't believe me?


Unfortunately, my exact skirt is now gone from Express, but I was really happy to be able to find pretty good options for you guys (herehereand here). And if you missed my guest post a few months ago when I talked about this skirt in more detail - you can get yourself caught up here.

Thanks for reading and Happy Hump Day!

  3. Have you ever seen the movie Shag? If not, you need to! Whenever I hear Myrtle Beach I think of that movie. I need to go there someday. On to the outfits!! I have missed that skirt and especially those HEELS. They are still one of my all time favorite pairs of yours.

    1. Ahahaha! This was so random but hilarious! Yes I have seen the movie and yes you need to go! One of my good friends is there and she is SO fun! Yes, I forget about these shoes - they need more air time!

  5. Oh my goodness, I would be wearing that skirt all the time, just like you. Love the various ways you have styled it, but this specific post, those shoes are really making the chambray and stripes quiet, stealing the show! Love how textured and awesome it all looks!

  10. What do you do for work, Carylee? Are you a CRA? I just love the long striped skirt. And those shoes! You really do have the best collection of shoes and purses.

    1. I will be honest and say I don't know what a CRA is! But I work in real estate development/construction for a restaurant company! Our dress code is pretty relaxed, so I can get away with pretty much anything, which I love!

  11. I could not have seen this post at a better time. I was trying to find ways to remix a striped skirt I have for work. Love all your combinations. I'm going to replicate a few!!

    1. The heels unfortunately are not new. I got them last year at Nordstrom's anniversary sale!
      And yes, the skirt does need to make a comeback. I'm so glad I picked it up because I've already worn it so many times! It's great!
