What I'm Wearing: Sophisticated Stripes

Miss me? I miss all of you! I sure feel like I've been very absent recently. I apologize. I have been on the hunt for a job and keeping myself busy with life's little things. I intend to be back in full force this week though. The weather in Michigan has been absolutely gorgeous. It's been in the 60s and 70s pretty much all week long. That is nearly unheard of in a Michigan March. Not that I am complaining!

Today I decided to break out a super cute skirt that I picked up on my birthday shopping excursion a few weeks ago. I love the neutral colored stripes and the fun front detail. I decided to keep it simple and pair it with a black top, wedges and a statement necklace. As much as I love my tights collection, my legs sure felt liberated.

Skirt and Necklace: JC Penney, Top: Maurices, Wedges: Kohl's

What do you think of this look?

  2. Hot damn!!! Your legs look fabulous!! My mom actually told me today that I need to go tanning because my legs are "too pale on your blog." Her words. Thanks, Mom.

    I love that skirt so much! I need to go to Penneys immediately. Everyone I've talked to said the clothes have improved big time. I may have to get this skirt!

    Yea, I love going tightless but I miss the comfort they give me, I feel more exposed and nervous that my dress will fly up in the wind without them, haha

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
