Today's Everyday Fashion: A Cafe in Paris






































Can you picture it? A cafe in Paris, sitting on the sidewalk, enjoying a Cafe au lait... I've never been to France, but I can totally see this outfit fitting into that picture! This navy and ivory skirt has always been a favorite of mine (I got it last summer at H&M), so I was thrilled when I found this inspiration photo. I love the idea of mixing the nautical skirt with a military-inspired shirt.

Shopping tips: Looking for a similar striped skirt? The Limited has one in stores right now (it recently sold out online). There's also this one from Piperlime, and this one from Bloomingdale's.

Inspiration photo: Madewell.com
Shirt: Gap, $10
Navy and ivory skirt: H&M, $30
Belt: American Eagle/Filene's Basement, $5
Charm on chain: c/o Stella & Dot, $19
Shoes: H&M, $40

  4. Jenn, this skirt definitely has more volume than I'm used to, but I figured with a cinched waist maybe I'll look like I finally have some curves. :-)
