OUTFIT // stripes and leather pencil skirt

(Leather skirt: Asos. Breton top: Topshop. Sandals: 3.1 Phillip Lim) 

After taking these photos, Shawn and I wondered into a local supermarket to buy some toothpaste. I wasn't prepared to get out of the car but he couldn't get my card to work so I had to go into the store myself. I didn't feel like shuffling through the supermarket in my pencil skirt and high heels, so I threw on some shabby granny slippers I had in the back of the car. I walked into the store, my slippers flopping about my feet, and as I approached the counter, the check-out girl said, "I love your skirt!"
 I think that if a piece of clothing gets compliments when paired with the uggliest, grottiest shoes you've ever seen, it's probably a keeper.

  15. I ADORE everything about this outfit! I really love the length of the skirt, it's unusual to have leather skirts that length but it looks great. And your stripes are so chic, I'm going to Paris in summer and now I want to wear stripes all the time in preperation :) xx
