My New Favorite Outfit: Bold Colors and Stripes

Bold Colors and Stripes

I love this skirt, but it's been forgotten in my closet for most of the winter. I'm excited to pull it out and wear it again! I thought it would be fun to pair with this blazer and a bold shirt I got from LOFT last summer.  I also love it paired with my new necklace from Mariposa Medley.  

On another note, I turned 35 over the weekend. How'd that happen???? I haven't really ever been one to be obsessed with age, but it suddenly seems like I should have my act together. I was also helping do some styling for a teen and realized while looking at AE, Hollister, and Delia's websites that I am way too old to wear anything from there! No almost midlife crisis here, more of a question of "How did time fly??"






Blazer: JCP same
Top: LOFT similar
Skirt: Target pretty option
Necklace: Mariposa Medley same
Bracelets: Stella and Dot Bracelets:  Chimera, Moxie , Renegade
Heels: Audrey Brooke similar

  5. Happy belated birthday! Girl- you seriously don't look a day over 25! (But I agree- at 28, I feel like a senior citizen walking into Hollister and the like lol).

  9. Happy belated birthday Ginny!! I think you look fantastic and I do believe that women get better with age(: There are still a few pieces that you can rock from those shops! But now you get to move on to the good expensive stuff(: Love this white blazer!! Susan

  10. Happy Birthday! I am 28 and I feel too old to wear things from those stores, so don't let it bother you. I love this skirt and you always look chic, professional, and not nearly as old as you are.

  13. Happy Belated Birthday! I'm only 27, but I think all those stores look so young too! Or any juniors section I walk by. Yet it still seems like yesterday I was shopping in those sections. Crazy how time flies! I really love your skirt and it looks so good paired with the white blazer!

  16. Ahhh isn't it scary? It's weird that there are stores at the mall that feel "too young" for me now, and there are quite a few of them! I'm loving this fresh look with the striped skirt and white blazer!

  17. Hope you had a lovely Birthday. You look great in bright colors. I love that skirt very much.

    I am close to you in age, getting there LOL. I can totally related to you about those stores. Though I think Aeropostale and American Eagle are still suitable on some clothing. =)
