Vertical stripes

Black and white stripes are such a big trend right now. I am sure everyone has at least one striped top in their closet. I have plenty of horizontal stripes but have not yet ventured into the realm of vertical stripes. Hence, I am excited to add this vertical striped top to my wardrobe. Since the blouse is the statement piece, I decided to pair it with a neutral skirt. This was my attempt at pattern mixing - a crochet skirt with a striped top. Do you think it's too much?

What I am wearing: 
Skirt: Ann Taylor *old* (buy similar)
Top: High-low vertical shirt c/o OASAP
Shoes: Ann Taylor Exotic Perfect Pump (same style in black)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla
Watch: Movado Serio



  1. Love the skirt, it's so pretty. You look beautiful in this outfit.

  2. Not too much in pattern mixing at all since they are all neutral palettes. What an interesting detail at the bottom of the shirt when untucked.

  3. LOVE this!!!! That lace skirt is beautiful. You did a great job of subtle pattern mixing. xo

  4. Super pretty..I love the mix you did here!

  5. Fun pattern mixing. I like this shirt's unique style and so love this skirt. So pretty.

  6. Love your glasses, great photos!

  7. yes, i have a million horizontal stripes and only 1 vertical stripe blouse that's very similar to one you're wearing from zara. =) and i have that skirt too. i think i even have the same at shoes except mine is a lighter animal print color. love your taste! =)

  8. Darn I haven't even found the perfect horizontal striped shirt yet. I'm looking for a 3/4 sleeve but they all look so boxy on me.

    ps. I think you have a little typo in the link :)

  9. I don't see why stripes and lace can't pair together, and at least one striped top in my closet -- try 7.

  10. I love how you ventured into mixing patterns/fabrics. I personally haven't purchased a vertical stripe....for some reason I've always gravitated towards the horizontal! I'll have to keep an eye out for a Vertical one soon.

    I love your skirt! Such a classic piece to your wardrobe! :)
