#StyleMeMarch – Parisian Inspired

Today’s inspiration in the Style Me March challenge was to wear something Parisian inspired.

The first thing that I thought about was wearing black and white stripes. I also have been wanting to try to do this to my hair.

I got my hair done today and my bangs are a little shorter than I would like but I still thought that I would be able to pull this off. In the mirror, I thought that I did ok. I am not so sure that it translated well in pictures.

Stripe Shirt – The Limited, Cardigan – Kohls, Belt and Necklace – Express, Jeans – Banana Republic, Shoes – Payless

I think that my hair is actually very distracting in these pictures, but I do really like how the pattern mixing turned out. I was staring in my closet for a long time trying to think about what else to pair with the stripes and saw this cardi. I love the large damask and the damask also seems very french to me – so I went with it. I didn’t feel like myself and was a little uncomfortable when I was leaving the house, but I think that really had to do with my hair than with the outfit.

We went to a friend’s house tonight for game night. I was in charge of desserts. This is what I brought!

**all made from scratch**

I am looking forward to tomorrow’s challenge.


Monday’s Outfit {2/13}

Last week was a very long week. This weekend was super busy. The Hubs left yesterday morning. This week is shaping up to be pretty darn busy as well. I just didn’t get around to posting yesterday. So here it is.

Suit – The Limited, Polka Dot Shirt – New York and Company, Jewelry – New York and Company, Belt – IDK, Shoes – Nine West via TJ Maxx

I loved how put together this outfit was and how easy to wear it was. I felt polished and comfortable all day. This is a great suit. I bought the matching skirt too Рwhich makes it very versatile too. I think that you will be seeing me trying to remix this often.

What do you think? How would you remix this suit?

And I will leave you with a detail shot.
