Stripe on Stripe

Skirt and Belt: Forever21; Shirt: BCBG (On sale at Macys); Shoes: Vince Camutto (On Sale at Dillards); Clutch: Aldo; Necklace: Stella & Dot
Felt a little daring to attempt my stripe on stripe look today.  I absolutely adored Atlantic Pacific's take on the original look.  Obviously, my budget and style know-hows are nowhere compared to hers, but she supplies some great inspiration.  I snagged this little striped pencil skirt at Forever21 for $11.00.  A couple days later, I found this BCBG top on sale at Macys and thought it was simple enough to offset the skirt.  To keep the look more sophisticated, I opted for nude peep toe heels and clutch, and brought in the red lips and belt to add a subtle touch playfulness.  What do you think, is stripe on stripe a look you're daring to try?

This is a bold look and I love it! You pull it off well. I liked that you kept the accessories neutral.

It seems funny to call it daring when you are rocking it so comfortably. It looks great!

I've got my very own love affair with stripes at the moment (bought two tops earlier).
Loving your skirt by the way :)

I love your boots so much! I actually tried that skirt on the other day, but it looks so much better on you! Needless to say, I didn't buy it.

Loving this entire look, but I also missed the Stella & Dot necklace. As a stylist, I love to see our accessories on real women. :)
