I love sequins. I love stripes. I love this sweater. Stripes and sequins might just be the best combination ever (worn before here)! It took my day-to-day uniform (skinny jeans, flats, and a striped shirt) up a notch! I've never been fond of wearing heals when I'm running around shopping. I hate feeling too fussy--sparkles are enough for me. My shoes of choice are almost always a cute pair flats. I admire girls who rock them as much as heels (like Jessica Biel and Olivia Palermo). I've got my eye on this Tory Burch pair.

you look great! i love this whole outfit! and you reminded me that I reallllly need to purchase a trench.

Ana said...

You really can't go wrong with such a lovely combination as flats, dark skinny jeans and a striped shirt topped with a trench and classic Ray-Bans, but somehow you made it look extra appealing!
Also, I probably have enough striped items to only live in them, but this sequined top really speaks to me!

It's definitely high time for a perfect trench. I have that knit version of that top from J.Crew- it goes with so much!

Kate said...

You & Bee (atlantic pacific) are shirt twins today! So cute! And I love that you frequently rock flats... I feel so much more natural/comfortable running around in a cute pair of flats, it's inspiring to see someone who still looks so well put together wear them, too!

Taylor Marie said...

You look great and gorgeous as always, I love that combo as well, so pretty :) I love your trench -- I've always wanted a classic trench!

I also love the location you took your pictures at! A gorgeous background and gorgeous look!

The J.Crew sweater is to die for. Everytime I go in I melt over it. Not sure why I haven't bought it nor tried it on, but it's just so pretty that I just want to look at it. Hahahaha... fashion daze! Love the look toned down with the trench!

Happy Tuesday!

elizabeth / sophisticated pie said...

this look is absolutely everything! I would/ could totally rock this everyday!!

fshnonmymind said...

Taylor, we're sweater twins!! I saw this on the website and drooled over it for awhile. I didn't think sequins were a practical purchase, but when the sweater promo came up, I said it's mine. I wore mine last week and I love it, love it, love it. Such a fun piece to wear and make the day feel more special. You look great in yours!

I wish I could be the kind of girl who could prance around all day in heels (especially a skinny heel), but my feet like the flats too much.

Marie said...

Love this outfit. So chic :)

Jaclyn said...
