Outfit: Stars and Stripes








Priceless Navy

I decided it was high time for a jeans-to-work outfit so started with the striped top for inspiration. It is too cold to wear an off the shoulder top with just a cami or tank underneath as I usually would, so I opted to layer up with a polo neck instead. I thought it would be fun to add the star print scarf for a little pattern mixing, and the blue boots just seemed to fit. They look like crushed velvet, but they are actually just fake suede.

I think the whole thing turned out quite French looking (and a little New Look centric).

  1. Great outfit. I love the jeans. Your hair looks full of volume today, is that your new hair toy working it's magic? I want one!

    Thanks for your comment, I am working on getting the coat challenge started. I still can't think of a good name!

  2. Thank you! I think it's partly the hair toy and partly that I parted my hair slightly differently yesterday. Can definitely recommend the Big Hair styler though.
