Dots and Stripes
While I was trolling through Banana Republic's website a while back, I came across an outfit that I absolutely loved which had a cross hatched white and black blouse, a cream and black striped skirt, an orange cardigan and a khaki trench coat. I loved the look, but since I've banned unnecessary internet shopping for awhile, I wasn't going to easily be able to purchase the outfit. So into my closet I went. I pieced this outfit together using stuff I already owned. I went with polka dots because I didn't have anything cross hatched. Honestly, I was quite pleased with the results. I almost gave away this blazer over the summer because khaki washes me out, but I'm really glad I didn't.
For full disclosure, I went to Banana Republic on Saturday and I now own the cross hatched blouse and the cream and black striped skirt they had online. In my defense, I didn't exactly ban overall shopping and I didn't buy it on the internet. Stripes are my downfall.
