Stripes and Chambray for Spring

When J. Crew rolled out this pop stripe skirt last month it was love at first sight! I love a good pencil skirt (although this isn't quite as fitted as your average pencil skirt), anything with stripes, and anything with vibrant colors, so it was a win all around! In fact, I loved it so much, it ended up being one of the pieces I sprung for at close to full price for fear of missing out on it in the event of it selling out!

I pretty much stole the styling idea for the skirt from the J. Crew catalog. In the catalog, they paired the skirt with a chambray button down, just as I'm doing today. I'm not sure if this shirt counts as Chambray or just plain denim, but I went with Chambray in the title because it just sounds fancier! Also, as you can see, my tassel earring collection is growing by leaps and bounds! I joked with my husband that even though these particular tassel earrings are not heavy, for whatever reason they sort of threw off my equilibrium when I first put them on!

Last of all, I usually do a Saint Patrick's Day post with a green themed outfit, but I'm not sure I'm going to get to this year. I figured this post, in a pinch, could count for St. Patrick's Day because there is a green stripe in the skirt and also the door behind me is green. So, I'll just wish you an early "Happy St. Patrick's Day!" to all of my readers.
