Brown and Stripes, How to wear stripes for fall

WhatIWore: So I’ve got a little brown suede mini skirt that I found at Goodwill and I’ve been hesitant to wear it without tights. Now that it’s cooler out, I’ve turned to Pinterest to gather some ideas on how to style it. Although none of these are exactly what I have in mind (or in my closet), it’s definitely helped to get my wheels spinning.  

I think as the average gal reading blogs and checking stuff out online, it’s important to remember that all of this inspiration can either be daunting (I’ll never compare!) or just a great place to get ideas and a launch pad. Some bloggers wear outfits that probably cost thousands of dollars, but could I replicate something similar? Sure! It’s all about the inspiration! 

We’re so lucky to live in a time of so much information and to have so many resources for our creativity. And honestly, to dress as we damn well please! A hundred years ago women didn’t have nearly the freedom of expression through clothes like we do. Women didn’t wear pants! Or vote! 

Anyway…. I’ll jump off my tiny soapbox to say… these photos have me thinking about some mod mini skirt and stripe combos that I might try out later this week. What’s on your radar these days?
