Outfit of the Day- Sept. 20,2010

Stripes, Denim and Spade

Today I am going shopping and to a friend's birthday party. I was really wanting to wear stripes today, so I put together this little outfit to get a more casual look from one of my Kate Spade Esti skirts.  The colors in the skirt are such a unique combination and so fresh looking.  I have always considered this skirt a spring item but adding the black stripe top and distressed denim vest gives it a more year-round look. (I hope...) Do you think this works or should I stick to the simple sweater set look with this skirt? I am trying to spice things up a bit using my existing wardrobe (that I love, of course) instead of going out and buying lots of new things for fall.  I am trying for quality not quantity...that means fewer clothes...

I am wearing:
Kate Spade Esti skirt from spring 2009
Forever 21 Stripe knit top
Levi's distressed denim vest
Kate Spade Disco Fever Pendant
Grandmother's pearl earrings
Van Eli shoes with Lucite heel 
Kate Spade Ouinn in Hot Pink

What a fantastic skirt! If it were me, I might skip the denim, but I love the striped sweater with it!

la petite coquine, I totally agree that the denim vest is pushing the envelope! I have a 14 year old daughter who helps me pick out my clothes and she liked it because it was "edgy".lol I don't think I have ever been "edgy" before in my life!
