Daily: The Stripes Say It All

There’s just something great about stripes, especially when they’re black and white with a pop of red. Also, I would like to admit that I used to be terrrified of wearing high-waisted skirts. Remember when Jessica Simpson wore those high-waisted jeans and was accused of having one of the most unflattering outfits ever? That was my fear when I was fifteen. But look at me now - I’m older, and most of the skirts I own are high-waisted. Go figure. Here’s the breakdown:

Top: Elder Beerman
Skirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Garage sale (Lauren by Ralph Lauren)
Belt: Gap
Purse: Garage sale
Necklace: Gap
Feather Headband: Claire’s

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, garage sales are the fuel to my fire in the summer. My shoes are courtesy of a garage sale, as is my bag (I love its vintage feel). I wore this to a few graduation parties. Nothing like cake, cake, and more cake to make that skirt feel a little tighter. Oh, well…you only live once!

Also, Dad, I would like to point out that I never fell in these shoes. (That’s my dad’s biggest fear: me falling because of my high heels. Has it actually ever happened? No. Totally irrational fear, Dad.)
