The epitome of my style

Sunnies: Gucci (option) | Necklace: Stella & Dot (budget option) | Bag: Foley & Corinna | Top: Express (option, option) | Bracelets: Express (option), Stella & DotSkirt: Express | Shoes: Pedro Garica (option, option)

I swear I just need to share closets with Rachelle because this is another purchase inspired by something I saw on her. This time it was her skirt worn here. I wasn't sure which color I wanted - I was debating between black and grey. I leaned more towards black only because I feel like I have lots of grey in my closet already and not enough black. I know, life choices are SO HARD, right? So hard that I was texting Gina trying to make my decision and she told me I wasn't allowed to buy it in either color unless I went to my closet room and sent her a pic of 2 things I would wear with at least one color. (Seriously, she made me do this. And of course, I obliged.)


I was thinking a graphic tee, a sweatshirt (with tights and boots in the winter), and one of my portofinos (probably worn knotted.) Based on these selections, I decided to go with the black.

I should have saved this outfit for last this week because it's my favorite. What's not to like? Stripes - good! Drapey skirt - good! Peep toe booties - goooooood! (Yes, that's a Friends reference.) I feel like this outfit is the epitome of my style - nothing over the top, simply a handful of classics with a twist, and a pop of color and funk. And the fact that everything is ridiculously comfortable, down to these cork heels, is just a cherry on the top!

Linking up for: Tremendous Tuesday#AllAboutYouErin and Laura for Trend Spin Linkup, and Stylish Tuesday.

  4. I have wanted this skirt since seeing it on Rachelle. I like both colors. It looks comfy too. You have such an extensive closet that I'm sure you could come up with 10+ outfit possibilities for both.

  8. I love this whole outfit. The simple necklace against the stripe top, and the detail of your skirt. Lovely pairing all around :). I was looking at the stripe shirt at express, but they ran out of my size (getting teary eye now) so I had to leave it behind :(.

  17. Super cute look! I love the drapey skirt and the detail on that top. What an awesome friend to make you find stuff you can wear something with before buying! I need someone like that, I have WAY too many things in my closet that I never wear, because I don't have anything to put them with.

  18. First of all, your Friends reference is AWESOME. I love fellow Friends fanatics!! "First a layer of lady fingers, then a layer of cream, then beef sauteed with peasand onions, then another layer of lady fingers..." Anyway.. This outfit is so cute. And I love that you had to take picture for what you would wear it with if you bought it. Perhaps I should practice that for self restraint...
