Week 2 :: of Mondays and the striped skirt

This week, rather than my random dart-throwing at Pinterest boards, I decided to challenge myself with a theme.  And since my closet is primarily made up of the two ends of the spectrum, I present to you, my friends, Black & White Week.

Today is Monday and it’s predicted to be the coldest day of the week.  A dreadful So.Cal. weather change with 80-degree temps is looming in the horizon so my cashmere turtleneck ensemble needed to happen now.

I’m not as cute and tiny as Wendy and my skirt doesn’t have the coveted pockets but I think my version comes pretty darned close to the original. I did add the neck bling but only because turtlenecks give me uniboob so I needed a visual break against that vast expanse.  It takes the place of the belt from the inspiration photo.

Here is the shoe I wore.  It’s a relatively new purchase (read: two weeks ago) from Target and I’m particularly proud of it because I’d been on the hunt for a comfortable yet cute nude pumps since forever.  There’s an actual saga attached to that hunt but that’s a story for another day.  Suffice to say, this shoe will probably feature often in numerous outfits to come.
