Stripes on Stripes

I love the uniqueness of this cardigan! The stripes go vertical in the back!

Button Up: Burlington Coat Factory
Cardigan: Marshall's
Skirt: Charlotte Russe
Necklace: ANCIENT! (Literally, I bought it in the 6th grade for $1.50 at JC Penny. Best $1.50 ever spent!!)
Belt: Old (I call this knot the bow knot)
Shoes: Sperry's
Watch: Fossil
Bracelets: Gifts from  my Grandma

Ok, first of all, I'm OBSESSED with today's outfit. It's so comfortable and I feel so pretty! I wasn't sure that the stripes on stripes would work when I was putting the outfit together last night but I LOVE the outcome!

With Love,

  4. I love that sweater - so cool. Your outfit looks great.

  5. What a wonderful outfit. I love the skirt and stripes are in right now, it's nice to see one with vertical stripes in the back. Also that bow tie knot is really cool. You should show us how you did it. I know it's probably simple but a tutorial is always helpful :)


    1. What a great idea! I didn't think to do a tutorial! I'll definitely do that within the coming weeks! Thanks so much for checking out the blog, Tiffy! I really appreciate it!

    2. I'm so glad you asked for a tutorial Tiffy. I was def wondering how to make that pretty bow too. I can't wait to see the tutorial! :)

  8. The stripes that go vertical in the back are so unique. I love when you can get a deal on something like that necklace and then wear it for so many years!

  11. Hi there Ashleigh. I found you through the WWIW Linkup and I am glad I did. My name is Ada, nice to meet you. I am your newest follower and I'd love for you to stop by and follow me as well.

    This outfit is so cute & girly. Dying over the skirt & belt - definitely appeals to my girly self. But I love how you made the outfit preppy with those adorable Boat Shoes. =)

    Take Care, Ada. =)
