I like to refer to this look as “edgy meets high fashion”! I will admit this outfit didn’t come all that easily as it was probably the tenth outfit I attempted to assemble that morning! Things don’t always fall into place but I am exceptionally thrilled with how this look turned out in the end. Due to my 5’2 stature I did need to do some hemming to this maxi skirt before I could wear it. Tall girls need things longer, short girls need things shorter. Sigh!
I was unsure for probably two weeks about what would work with this skirt due to it’s black and white pinstripe. I originally thought a bright coloured blouse or shirt but none of those were quite right. I then decided to paw through my tops one by one and found this black one with gold dots. Although the dots are subtle I think it is a very cute mix of patterns.
I thrifted these fabulous American Eagle Outfitters low heel wedge pumps last week in the children’s section of Value Village – only $3.99! As depressing as it is for me to sift through the sparkles and Hannah Montana sandals, occasionally I do find the perfect gems such as these and of course my favourite gemstone toe flats by GAP Kids. Oh and yes I did notice that the sole of these shoes match the skirt perfectly but it certainly was not planned!
