Simply Stripey

snow shoes

Snowy and super windy Tuesdays call for a new favorite closet item (and tights…I didn’t forget them today, unlike last week – high five me)! This striped skirt from Target has been featured multiple times on this blog in non-outfit posts, and I finally got around to purchasing it and wearing it. It is probably the most comfortable skirt I own (super stretchy and super soft), and I’m obsessed with the navy and cobalt blue mixture.

I paired it with tights, loafer pumps, and a neutral sweater for a fairly simple look for work today, and I can think of many, many different ways to remix this skirt. I especially can’t wait to rock it on a summer weekend with a graphic tee and flats.

Still working on Nicole at VV Boutique Style‚Äôs January Blackout Challenge for the next two weeks. Today’s look successfully passes the test!

ps. Yes, my necklace has safari animals on it, and yes it is beyond awesome. Thank you!

pps. Don’t worry dear readers, my dad definitely made fun of me for my “dad joke” in yesterday’s post. He told me to keep my day job, which I reported to today. Thanks Dad!
