Get Your Stripe On!

I'm a big fan of stripes and more so preferably of the thinly striped look. I think it is a bit easier on the eye and gives a better silhouette for my figure. In such I paired this gorgeous shirt with the additionally striking skirt (which you last saw in this post) both purchased at Old Navy. This was my first attempt in pairing stripes and I think it makes a great statement. 

I must say Old Navy is stepping it up with their looks. I was immediately drawn to both pieces and the best part is both can definitely work well with other items in my closet. I'm  so used to seeing their staples of tees and jeans that when I saw the top first I was wowed!



I've been a pant girl for quite some time and making the transition to incorporate skirts and dresses was a bit challenging. I love a full almost princess like skirt but I cant say it does anything for my shape. After some trial and error in purchases I now know pencil skirts are the way to go. It gives a nice fit to my hips and legs. Now I just need to get them in all colors! 

Shirt & Skirt: Old Navy ( Shirt and skirt)  Pumps: Nine West  Earrings: Forever21
