Stripes & Florals

Top: New York and Company, old
Skirt: New York and Company, old
Heels: Christian Louboutin "Decoltissimo," thrifted {similar here and here}
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff "Swing" {similar here and here}
Earrings: thanks to Anjolee {here}
Ring: Kendra Scott "Tela" {here}
Bracelets: Target {similar here and here} and Vintage
Sunglasses: Tom Ford "Anouk" {similar here and here}

I hope your last weekend in July was a nice one! Before we photographed this outfit, David asked, "Is this one for vintage week?" Ha, no, but I suppose it does have a retro silhouette. I pulled out some old (circa 2004) garments from my closet to create this look. I've never put this top and skirt together before, but I'm please with the result. Happy Monday!

Lovely outfit! It does have a vintage vibe going on with the collar of the top and the a-line skirt. I love pulling out old clothes and finding new ways to wear them. I hope your week's off to a great start :)

This outfit does have a vintage vibe to it, but I think your overall style has a vintage vibe anyway, which is probably why I love your blog so much! :)
