Vertical (See Jane Wear)

Zara skirt (similar)J crew sweatshirt, thrifted Gap jean jacket (similar), Zara heels (old but similar), KW sunglasses
Although stripes take up a huge part of my closet, this is my first try with the vertical kind.  They're a a bit intimidating and a lot bold, so I paired it with the most disarming pieces in my closet: a  light sweatshirt and denim jacket.  A light sweatshirt, denim jacket and pajama pants is what I wear to walk Jerome most nights, too; I wasn't kidding when I said that they go with everything.

  8. Vertical stripes are definitely unique, but I really like this outfit.

    You're right- a denim jacket really does go with everything. Mine gets a lot of love, especially at this time of year.

  23. I also tend to pair the most intimidating pieces with the least -- gives me a sense of comfort.
