You will probably like this post as there is quite some variation. With a failure to finish it off.
It is all about this horizontally striped skirt. I showed you this skirt before with my pink neon top and my lime sweater. I think I have worn it once and I am deeply ashamed. In my defense…. it was lousy weather till two weeks ago and it is a summer skirt. Beginning of July I visited the shop again where I bought the skirt. The sales assistent recognized me and remembered what I bought in March. Don’t you love people like this? They are made to sell. I am always so smitten / flattered by something like that, I want to show my appreciation by buying more. Am I the only one?
When I asked her for something else to wear with the skirt besides the pink neon top, she showed me this anchor blouse and said they would look lovely together. I doubted that very much. But the blouse is also very nice on jeans, so no risk in buying it. Which I did. What’s new?
Although everybody always seems to be able to make different prints match, I never do. And I have no clue how to do it. But…. I tried it and took a photo as this is the only way for me to judge it properly (the mirror lies).
LOVE it. This girl is definitely going to see more of me.

Below: here is the failure. Although my friend and stylist Anja says she quite likes it, I think it is hideous. Too many items with stripes. And the T-shirt over the skirt makes a very unflattering silhouette. (Might also be because I forgot to take the black belt off underneath… which does not do much good for your waistline LOL.)
