Paralegal Career Dressing: Stripes & Prints

Paralegal Career Dressing:  Stripes & Prints

I think I almost pattern mixed today, maybe? Snake skin pumps, roses on a background of dotted print (which is too small to see) on the skirt, stripes on the blouse? A radical departure for me, anyway. This is outfit number two for Super Stripes Week.

I also added a fabric flower pin to my doubled strand of freshwater pearls. I think one of my antique rhinestone pins might have been a better choice. This one kept flipping around backwards, rendering most of my pics un-usable. Ah, the joys of self-photography, inside, in 10 minutes or less.

UK French Connection boat neck blouse (Sears @$11); Madison Studio skirt (thrifted $11); Liz Claiborne Flex pumps (Shoe Carnival); Freshwater Pearls (Steinmart); Brooch (JKW Jewelry)

I’m excited that my total outfit cost less than $25 again, minus the shoes, which as you can see, I’m wearing the heck out of, so will likely be down to a $1 a wear by July.

Also, I am truly a fool for a full skirt.

The fabric in this skirt is delightfully heavy, like drapes.
You can see a little of the dotted print on the skirt. Can you see the tiny seed beads in the brooch?

Where do you stand on wearing prints and stripes together?

  1. Wow! What a cool blog you have! And check out all your paralegal blog links! How cool is that? I always feel like I might be the only paralegal in the universe sometimes. This is awesome what you've done here! Thank you so much again for your kind words on my post about Bob. I really appreciate it. BTW you look great. I looooooove stripes and florals.

  2. I like the pearls with the stripes and the addition of the flower. I like a full skirt too, but for me it is a more casual, even summery look.

  3. @Frannie ~ So excited to have found you. You are one of two other paralegal style bloggers I've found, so get ready to get a mention in the near future! ๐Ÿ™‚
