In my opinion, there is nothing better than some skinny jeans and a striped blouse. I always gravitate towards stripes and am constantly in search of my next striped item.  I wear this kind of outfit to work a lot because it is casual but still put together.   Most of the time I'll opt for flats or some sandals/wedges because I'm not exactly the most graceful person in heels.  Like for reals I have some balance issues and if I fell at work I would never hear the end of it from my co-workers (we like to poke fun at each other--makes the day go faster, you know what I'm sayin? so they would seriously laugh their heads off if I fell in front of them--haha I would too so I can't really blame them). But I absolutely love high heeled shoes so I'm trying to get better about wearing them and I've made some improvements.  Do any of you have issues with walking in heels or am I the only clutz around here? 


  1. Love the simple striped blouse! I must invest in one


  2. I can manage in heels for about 15 minutes and then all sense of balance and equilibrium goes out the door. Haha! But there's nothing like nude heels to make you feel long and lean, right? I am so a stripe addict. In fact, I'm wearing a striped shirt today. Love the look!

    1. Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble in heels haha!

  3. Love, love, love the heels! I have a similar pair in black, but Im really loving the nude colour too!
