Striped Skirt & Polka Dot Blouse & Fancy Friday linkup

striped skirt in white and navy

What fashion item reflects more to this season then a blue and white striped skirt. It immediately reminds you of the French Riviera, not that I have ever been there, boat trips on a hot summer day, etc. Can you imagine it? Years ago I had an almost same skirt, also from the same brand, but the other way around. Blue with white stripes.What strikes me, incidentally, is that every time I tell you that I don’t wear something, I suddenly wear it a lot. Like a white skirt or trousers and blouses.

How I style my striped skirtlong navy cardigan on pencil skirt

This skirt is very stretchy and a bit thicker material. With a slit on the side. A little scuba-like material. But it creases a bit more. Pre loved, but new and for a bargain price! That’s how we love it! I wanted to wear it with some other print and then I thought that blue white and brown would look so good together. At first I wanted to wear these sandals under the skirt, which would have looked good too, but I wanted ankle boots. And with ankle boots a long cardigan is the perfect cherry to the cake.

Not that I follow trends, I pick from it what I like. I set my own trends. But polka dots are huge at the moment. Aren’t they each spring? This top is from last year, a Primark buy, and yes the second season for this top! Polka dots always sweeten a outfit I think. They give a look a girly vibe. Such a jolly good print. And polka dots love stripes!

For accessories I am wearing a plastic white bracelet with a white statement ring and a dark blue statement ring. And white blue striped earrings. I am ready for a holiday!…….Oh wait….we haven’t got one. Well perhaps in the first week of September. Let’s keep our fingers crossed right!striped skirt and polka dot blouse

    Polka dots never go out of style – they are a classic for a reason! I love this pattern-mixed outfit, Nancy. The long cardigan really looks great.

    I already admired your outfit on Instagram, so it’s lovely to see more of it here. That skirt is the epitome of Summer holidays. I once had a maxi dress in the same stripe. I love how you’ve done some pattern mixing here with the polka dot blouse. And that long navy cardigan is the perfect outer layer. I find myself drawn to longer cardigans lately. Wishing you a lovely weekend, with some nice weather! xxx

      Thanks Ann, I think longer cardigans are much better then shorter ones on a skirt. On a dress I love shorter ones! Have a great weekend, it won’t be a sunny one but it still is a good temperature!

    You have such a cute figure. No matter what you are wearing, you always look great. And everything always fits so well. I have a blue and white striped dress that I need to fish out of the closet this summer. I am really liking dresses with tennis this season and it would work very well with some white tennis shoes. That rusty, orange color in your blouse is lovely. Great pattern mixing my friend.
