Earn Your Stripes

Top: Jeans West

Skirt: Old Navy

Belt: City Chic

Shoes: Zensu


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).

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!
