A Lack of Color

I went for an oh-so-neutral look today with the help of a couple new items -- this slouchy striped tee and these alice + olivia for Payless platform wedge sandals. I love soft, roomy pieces because they encourage me to stray from structure (to which I'm naturally inclined). And I love the huge platforms on these puppies because they look cool and super high but actually make the shoes more comfortable.
Shirt: Julie's Closet, TJMaxx, $10 // Skirt: F21, $6 // Necklace: Vintage, thrifted, $4 // Shoes: alice + olivia for Payless, $20

very cute! I ditched a couple sweet horizontally striped tops six months ago with a big shipment to goodwill, and immediately after regretted! Like seriously, bag left my hands as the idea to re-vamp them surfaced in my mind.....
sigh....


in any case, I like the way you wear 'em!

I love how you've done your hair today! And the neutral overload is just perfect. Love it!

Why does the Payless near my house have nothing interesting and I always see you rocking something cool from them? Mystery...

Oh, I am really loving the proportions of this outfit so so much! The slouchy tee is perfect and the full, short skirt looks great with the chunkier heels.

Plus, I think I've told you before, but that necklace is beyond rad. Perhaps when we go to the Weardrobe conference, you wouldn't mind me borrowing it? I'd be more than happy to trade...let's strike a deal, lady!

I love the loose bubble type jean skirt with the loose striped tee & the addition of this awesome stone necklace is to die for. Perfect summer outfit.

Thanks, everyone!

I work for Payless Corporate (it's based in Kansas), so Payless shoes are a big part of my life. :) You should try looking online if your store doesn't have what you're looking for. Our designer collections are really cool. And Christian Siriano for Payless is coming this fall!

You're on! I'll be sure to bring this necklace along to NY.
