You guys are probably sick of seeing this striped long shirt by now, but it was a serious fave of mine all summer long so I have to pay homage to it one last time. I blogged about it HERE a few months ago, but I want to give you guys a quick refresher. I picked it up at Doota in June during my month-long trip in Korea, and it was the ONLY thing I purchased there clothing-wise.
I wanted to get more stuffs, but everything was either too expensive or straight up un-buyable. I know “un-buyable’s” a harsh, but not being able to try something on (without the option of return) is a dealbreaker for me. So, I exercised self-control and kept my shopping habit to a minimum. However, I ended up wearing it all the freakin’ time, which brings me to *drum roll, please* today’s remix. I’ll be sharing my fave looks with you guys on Sensible Stylista!
1. My first look’s a work-friendly ensemble that’s both comfortable and stylish. I started with a fabulous dress from H&M and wore my striped long shirt on top. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always been a huge fan of summer layering and all that jazz. There are a ton of cute deets happenin’ in this outfit already (tassels + ruffles), but I threw on my Valentino-inspired heels to add more personality. To see more snaps from this shoot, click here!
2. Look number 2’s more of a casual everyday outfit. I wore this out to lunch last month when I met up with an old friend from high school. I was running super late so I only got to snap 1-2 pics of it with my cam – that’s why I never used it as an individual post. In retrospect, I probably would’ve carried a different bag, but whatever, I was home visiting my parents in Pittsburgh so I wanted to take full advantage of my mom’s amazing closet.
For this getup, I started with a cute faux-leather mini and paired it with a navy tank from Polo. I picked up a bunch of them (tanks + tees) from their factory outlet in Grove City because they were on sale for $9 or so. TIP: always get your basics for less! I refuse to spend a buttload of money on items that aren’t “special.” The only exception IMHO is if you’re investing in something you’ll wear forever like the classic trench.
Sorry, I totally got off topic. Let’s get back to my OOTD! This skirt has navy embroidery so it matches everything beautifully. My neck felt a bit bare so I threw on a fabulous statement necklace. This gorg piece is available at Jwholesale. If you’re looking to purchase trendy jewelry for a fraction of the price, make sure to hit them up HERE.
3. I’m oozing (or at least trying to, ha) casual cool for this ensemble. I kept things very simple by wearing high-waisted denim shorts and a plain white tee. The striped long shirt elevates the outfit and creates a cohesive vibe. I went easy on the accessory front, but carried my faux-snakeskin YSL crossbody for a splash a print. To top things off, I wore distressed boots. To see more from this post, click HERE.
