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?

Found you on Weardrobe. Cute outfit and I like the last minute, different take on breton stripes!

Kayla said...

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.

Definitely LOVE the sweater. I'm not one for multiples either, but sometimes our rules are meant to be broken.

Rachel said...

Super-pretty, and it's a great color on you, too! :D

Vanessa said...

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.

Ashley J said...

Your boots and necklace do match! I never even noticed but I love the way the outfit tuned out!

Tamuna said...

Wow, you got an amazing deal - and it's such a lovely piece. I found out it was Breton stripe day after I'd already left the house and hoofed in to campus...boo-urns!

Love all the blue...that sweater is great and such a neat necklace!

Frances Joy said...

Love. It. The striped skirt is so amazing - every time I see it I fall in love with it all over again.

La Fille D'or said...

I love the blue with the gold : ) That sweater was a real deal too! I keep seeing that dolman style in the boutiques but they are like $ 80

Amelie said...

I guess we're opposites! Quick outfit planning makes me not matchy matchy, haha. Anyway, I love the sweater and the necklace.

A lovely simple and elegant outfit! Love the gold belt.

buttonjar said...

Ooh, love the fringe with the stripes! Great contrast, esp with the gold belt. Great outfit - I'd happily take it off your hands if you ever get sick of it :).

Jill said...

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!

LIZ said...

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}.

Style Eyes said...

Hannie said...

Sweater, boots= genial! :)

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!

Between Laundry Days said...

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

Aren't gold belts the best? I wear mine with EVERYTHING. Great outfit!

Alex Elizabeth said...

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!

Marella said...

Looove the whole outfit!

daisymay aka Chantele said...

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

I like your fringe necklace.

gypsyroxylee said...

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!

Iris said...

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 :)
