What I Wore: Sequence Lines

8:42 AM

Oh stripes and plaid, what beautiful lines you create....lol...wasn't that cheesy? I guess by now you already figure out how much I love colors (blame my profession). I really tried staying with black and white theme, but as I put this outfit together this morning, I thought those colors alone made this outfit too dull. So I decided to add a pop of color with the plaid scarf, and massager bag. I like the end result because at first, I wasn't so sure about the portfolio shirt, especially pairing it with the stripe skirt. In the end, it turned out really nice and different from how I normally saw this shirt being worn.

As always, thanks for the lovely comments, and have a Happy Monday everyone. 










Outfit Consist of Portofino Skirt (Express) | Strip Skirt (Target) | Plaid Scarf (Amazon) | Heels (DSW) | Messager Bag (AliExpress)

  12. I think the pop of color makes your outfit absolutely chic, without that amazing plaid scarf would be a bit boring maybe, but the mix of stripes and plaid looks stunning!

  13. This turned out great! I love this Portofino paired with the striped skirt. And the red bag and scarf are a perfect complement to the black & White. And P.S. If your daughter loves to read you should definitely introduce her to the Baby-Sitters Club books. :) They're great for her age group.
