Simplicity Speaks (See Jane Stripe)

I saw this silky, striped skirt at H&M last week and it was love at first sight.  Not only was it the right length, style, and price ($30), but I can see myself wearing it a variety of ways.  Shown below is the most obvious and classic way, but that was my mood.  No frills - just letting the skirt speak for itself.  I also envision wearing this skirt in the fall - perhaps with a belted chambray shirt and a pair of short brown boots (with socks).  Here, paired with two simple and layered tanks and a pair of suede pumps, I realized it was the easiest decision I'd made all week.



 H&M top, skirt, and belt, J Crew shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses

Will you do stripes in the fall?

  31. Fun skirt!! I've been averse to stripes for a long time, I thought they wouldn't be flattering, but this season I've embraced them full force. I don't see the stripy things in my wardrobe being put away anytime soon!! So, I thought you would appreciate this, I just took my first set of outfit pics with the new camera, and I was BLOWN AWAY. The difference with the DSLR is amazing. Thank you again for your help with my research!

  34. Wow, that IS a gorgeous skirt. I do think I'll do something striped this fall, I was eyeing a long charcoal grey sweater with maroon stripes...its long enough to worn as a dress with tights.
