Gold flash

I was really excited when my order from The Limited arrived, this dolman sleeve sweater is perfect, exactly what I wanted. I've never been one for multiples, but I am kind of wishing I'd gotten a second color. Especially for the price, which after shipping and discounts, was only $17.

Today, apparently is Breton Stripes Day. I did not know this. For a moment I was really mad because I planed to wear my new Breton striped top on Thursday and was missing out. Then I remembered what skirt I was wearing.

This is a good example of how quick outfit planning makes me matchy. The necklace is gold and black and fringy. So the boots are black and fringey, and belt is gold. This is also a super comfortable outfit. Knit skirt, slouchy sweater and flat boots - who said looking cute and being comfortable were mutually exclusive?

  2. Love the twist on breton stripes. Sometimes matchy matchy is not so bad. I didn't notice all the matches till you pointed it out.

  5. I like the matchiness of this look! Especially because (as we've chatted about previously) whenever I see black and navy mixed it just looks fun and modern!
    Your belt is fabulous, too!
    I'm so MAD I forgot about Breton Stripes Day! Grr.

  26. Really cute sweater. I'm in the market for a dolman sweater myself, and I think the shape of this one is subtle and flattering. Your skirt is super cute as well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks for sharing this look with EBEW! I really like the contrasting fit of the skirt and top. And of course I love the fringe details on your boots and necklace {you can never have enough fringe}.

  30. Looking cute and being comfortable aren't mutually exclusive - well said!

    I didn't see too many striped skirts on EBEW, so you definitely stand out with your (unintentional?) choice!

  31. This is wonderful! I love gold and black and navy together.

  34. I love dolman sleeves! I totally missed out on Breton Stripes Day, but that's okay because I actually don't own any Breton stripes. That's practically a fashion crime, I know! I like the matchy elements of your outfit, especially the necklace and boots! The necklace is so unique and I like the idea of a statement piece with softer elements!

  35. Cute outfit! The necklace is very cool! And maybe you should get that jumper in another colour it fits lovely on you!

  37. This is a great shirt, in a great color and for a great price! I'm not a fan of multiples but when an item fits as nicely as this one does, it's worth evaluating. Love the necklace!

  38. I didn't see the matchy matchyness of this outfit until you pointed it out... it's not that bad. Love the color of that sweater. I am all about buying multiples :)
