I’m not much of a casual dresser. It’s too easy for me to look like I’m either on my way to a highschool final or to apply for my first credit card. I can’t be in pencil skirts all the time though, so when I’m not in office-wear, I love to wear stripes. Is there anything more chic than stripes? It’s Parisian (allons-y!), nautical (yarrrr matey!), and effortlessly cool (yeah man). I am totally stripe-obsessed right now. This shirt is a little more interesting than a regular tshirt because of the longer sleeves and the half-length waist. As you can see, I got the ankle boots I’ve been looking for! I had several picks from my selection of wooden-heeled ankle boots under $100. When I saw my friend Kati wearing the cutest ankle boots at dinner, I had to know where she got them. She told me they were from Payless, so I went there immediately after dinner and got a pair at the amazing clearance price of $25 plus an additional discount because I had to go to a second store for my size. Gosh, I love good deals! Thanks Kati! They are extremely comfortable and go perfectly with skinny jeans and jeggings.
