You Can’t Carry It With You If You Want To Survive

So I have this striped top from Target, and so do approximately 4,897 other style bloggers. Am I right? And every time they wear this top I think “oh la la” and I adore how they (you!) have styled it. And then I wear it and…eh.

But I think this look was a winner!

I was especially proud of the pale pink beads with the pale pink shoes.

Plus is was crazy comfortable!. Denim leggings + Tee shirt + flats? Yes, please. It sounds like a boring look but it wasn’t!

LOVE this outfit! Now I am sad that I'm not one of the many bloggers who owns this top. The pink shoes are the perfect touch.

As for your coworkers who didn't think the card was funny - well, they're just wrong.

I have this shirt; but haven't posted it yet. I didn't know what to wear either, I love this outfit, so classic and chic! Love those shoes too!

Loooove it! And I'm jealous, because if I wore stripes that went that way (horizontal? Right? I'm a dummy), I would look enormous. You just look fabulous.

Who doesn't love a great stripe!?

I cannot get over how cute this is!

You're right, this outfit is great. I'm holding out for the perfect navy and white striped boat neck nautical shirt, and I know I'll find it one day! But this is a pretty good look too! :)

Now, I'm not a major fan of the flat lace-ups (been there, done that, 1985-6), but I LOVE these ones! Awesome outfit, Erin!

Joy said...

I have serious, serious shoe envy right now!!! Great outfit!!
