Inspiration: Laura @ I Do DeClaire
Happy Friday! This week went by really slow, am I right?! Anyways, I’m looking forward to starting off the weekend with a barre class later tonight, then I’ve got a 9 mile run to do in the morning to prep for the half marathon before my parents arrive for the weekend! What are your plans?
You guys, I love this outfit. When I saw Laura’s version, I knew I had to recreate it. All the textures, colors and patterns work so well! I love the mustard cardigan against the light blue jeweled oxford button up shirt. Add a black and white striped skirt, textured tights and cognac boots and belt, and it completes the look! And who said brown and black didn’t go together?!
And here is a little close up action…but really, it’s just an excuse to play with my new camera. (And trying to find ways to pose where I can discreetly hide the camera remote!)
Shop the look-
Cardigan- Target (option, option)
Jewel collar oxford shirt- Kohl’s (got it on super clearance for under $5…yeah, I know; similar: J.Crew Factory, J. Crew, Ann Taylor)
Skirt: JC Penney (and it’s on clearance!)
Tights: Banana Republic Outlet
Boots: Aldo (option)
And in honor of Bri’s Third Thursday Threads (a day late), here are some other ways I’ve worn my black and white striped skirt: (full posts: left | right)

I love both your takes, I’ll have to try this too!
Thanks Ginny! Would love to see your take on this!
I think we have the same shirt AND cardigan! I really like this look on you! It looks so nice with your darker hair. I want your bow belt!! It’s such a perfect choice for this.
I think so! Such a fun look- love everything about it and I never would have put this outfit together without your photo as inspiration!

I really love that shade of yellow- I wear it often. So cute! And the skirt… lookin’ fabulous!
Me too! At first, I wasn’t sure about it and thought it would wash me out (as if I have yellow skin?!) but then I came to my sense :-) Thanks Amy!!
Great look! I love that skirt. Thanks for linking up with Style Swap!!
Thank you Jenn- it’s certainly getting lots of wear, that’s for sure!
I love how you styled this skirt with so many looks. I like all of them. I’m a little jealous about that skirt…wish it was in my closet! :)
Thank you Carrie! It’s such a versatile piece…and it’s on clearance at JCP if you have one nearby (or online!)
Love this! I’m pretty sure I have the same outfit from Laura pinned because I have everything to recreate it. You look great!
Oooh can’t wait to see how you style this look! I’m sure it will be fab!
Love this look!!!!!!! The striped skirt is so pretty!!!!!
Thank you Agi!!! :-)

We all know I’m obsessed with brown and black together – add mustard and chambray and you’ve got my new favorite outfit :)
YAYYYY! This outfit definitely has Bri all over it now that I think about it! :-)
