mixing denim-stripes-crochet
Before finding this striped Madewell skirt, I had been searching for something like it for the longest time! The only problem was, all the skirts I found at stores like H&M and Forever 21 were a little too short for my taste. I wanted a striped skirt that I could wear to school and work without having to constantly pull it down and fuss with it. So, I finally gave in and invested in this Madewell one after seeing Kendi of Kendi Everyday wear it a few times on her blog and convince me...

I decided to make my outfit more casual by layering a crochet sweater over my skirt, rather than tucking it in and wearing it high-waisted. I then added a little color to my ensemble with my denim vest, because I thought a full denim jacket would look too bulky. That's one great thing about this adds just enough denim to any outfit without overpowering it. Although, I'll be honest, I have attempted to wear it with a few outfits and it has made me look like a weird 90's pop star. So, MAYBE denim vests don't work with everything...
