scallops and stripes


I was a bit hesitant when I first tried this combination last summer (see here). A scalloped hem with a striped top? The chance that it could be deemed "too much" was high, but once I had it on I knew I had finally found the perfect match for a skirt I spent years trying to figure out what to do with. There was no turning back. It was pretty much settled before I clicked "order" that this skirt would be similarly paired with a classic breton striped shirt. 

Since this skirt is a solid white, I think it's a bit more versatile when it comes to pairings. It should go with just about anything, which is always a nice perk. Whenever I shop for new pieces I try to think of a few things I would wear it with so once it arrives it won't just be taking up space in the back of my closet. It's a useful tip if you are trying to build a wardrobe of things you'd like to wear things for years to come. 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Happy Monday and thank you for reading!
