Top: Jeans West
Skirt: Old Navy
Belt: City Chic
Another US purchase here, in this simple little cotton skirt which I picked up very cheaply from Old Navy. I’ve heard lots of dire things about the quality of Old Navy clothes, and certainly the t-shirts that I bought have stretched beyond recognition, but so far so good with this skirt!
It was actually supposed to be a high-waisted skirt, but I preferred it sitting on my hips, so I sized up.
I like the combination of striped top and skirt, but it really needed a belt to tie the look together.
The t-shirt has a low scooped neckline at both the front and the back, making it ideal for hot sweaty summer days and Jeans West did it in a navy stripe, too (which is proving impossible to find).
you look so cute – the heart ist lovely 🙂
Thanks Rubenia! It’s definitely my favourite belt!
Cute! Love the stripes and the colour on the skirt is gorgeous. I tagged you for a stylish blogger award, make sure you check it out! http://whitegreenandme.blogspot.com/2011/01/awarded.html
Thankyou so much, AnnaO!
I love the white and black stripe combination with the color of this skirt. The heart belt just seems to tie everything together beautifully! Have you layered your hair in the front? It looks so pretty!
Hi Bella! Thankyou! My Hairy Godmother’s still on maternity leave (wah!) and her stand-in put some layers in. I *usually* love it.
I adore the colour of this skirt 🙂 Very cute outfit.
Thanks Marina! I love the colour too, Hot Pink for ever!
I have to say I haven’t had the best of luck with Old Navy stuff either. But for the price it’s fairly good value. The skirt is a lovely colour.

Oh, thankyou so much, Kitty! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying reading 🙂
I love this look and you are right about the belt. It’s perfect!
Thanks, Danielle! Yay belts!
Long time follower, first time commenting 😀
Just wanted to let you know that I saw lots of navy and white striped tanks in Miss Shop at Myer today. After seeing your post yesterday I went on a hunt for more striped shirts, and came across a huge range of striped tees at Myer. Hope that helps in your search!
Oh, that’s fab Lucy! Thanks so much for the heads-up, I’ll check it out 🙂
Horizontal stripes – yay! And the color of that skirt is really nice! And the belt is (still) great!:)
Thanks Veronica 🙂
The heart part’s coming away from the belt I’ve worn it so much (note to self – need to buy glue)
I have a thing for strips at the moment…! I also really like your sandals. Seeing you in your summery outfits makes me want it to start getting warmer – I’m bored of winter now!
LOL, I’m the reverse… MY BOOOOOTS!! I WANT MY BOOOOOOOOOTS!
