Making a Statement in Stripes

stripedpencilAs promised, I’m coming with the outfit recreation from my first Pinterest Picks post. This look marries my two loves: stripes and long pencil skirts. I hope you enjoy.

streetstyle-stripedpencil-outfitI’m not a big fan of pink so I chose a skirt in a different color. I could not find shoes exactly like the ones in the picture but I found a pretty similar match I think. They have a similar height and color. All that is missing is the thin ankle strap. The look would not be complete without a statement necklace like the one she has. This was a hard choice. Forever 21 has a lot that I thought could work. But I eventually chose this necklace because I thought it was a similar size.

 Tipped roll edge stripe sweater in Navy. The Gap. S-XL $54.95. This sweater is tall sized. You could probably order the sweater in a size up to get the oversized look she has.

Vince Camuto midi tube skirt in True Rose. Nordstrom. On sale $46.23 XS-XL. The skirt is listed as 28.5″ which is just below the knee on me.

Shield Necklace Forever 21. $7.80

Brash Kosmic Platform pump in Light Brown. Payless. Up to size 13. $34.99

If 5″ pumps are not for you, you can try these instead:  Gabriella Rocha ‘Athens’ in Camel from They are on sale for $51.99 and they go up to size 13. They also come in a variety of different colors.

My original choice for the skirt was one of the two below. But neither of them have a size 12 in stock. (I usually only pick pieces that I could wear.) But if you are a size 8 or smaller, check these out!

 Asos Ponte Midi Pencil Skirt in Teal. $43.85. up to size 8

Asos Pencil Skirt in Longer Length in Bright Pink. up to size 8. $21.93

Happy Shopping,
