OOTD: B&W Stripes

Hello warm weather! This past week I ventured off to KU and it was gorgeous outside. With 70 degree weather I can't help but want to get all dressed up! But, I know winter is not over (but I wish it was) so I created an easy cute look with a striped tee and flared skirt. While exploring we found this wall with a spray painted heart and it was the perfect OOTD backdrop. 

I love this top because it features my two favorite things: polka dots and stripes. It doesn't get much better! I paired it with a simple black skirt with a unique silhouette. Although I wear this as an everyday outfit this would be super cute if you wanted to dress up but still be comfortable. Pairing comfortable tees with more dressy pieces is a great way to reach a happy medium! 

For accessories I kept things pretty simple. I wore an all black rhinestone statement necklace along with some gold glitter stud earrings. My bracelet stack was simple with three Alex and Ani bracelets and a beaded tassel bracelet. To complete the look I added my pearl KJP bracelet.

  1. Love this outfit! It's the perfect daytime casual look that could transition well for after-hours, too. (PS- I have the same striped polka dot tee and you *definitely* just inspired me to wear mine more often!)

    1. Thank you! And yes it's adorable it's perfect for a casual but fun look. Thanks for reading :)

  2. This is such a cute outfit! I love the stripes. I can't wait for sunnier days and warmer weather so I can start wearing cute clothes again. I'm getting so tired of sweaters and hoodies and jeans!
