Stripes + Stripes OOTD

This OOTD is brought to you by another "shopping in my own closet" remix attempt.  It pairs a striped button down with a striped cardigan accessorized by a cognac-colored belt and pearls.  I'm also trying the "X" from Kelly of Alterations Needed.

Does this work or is there too much going on?

Sorry about all the short posts!  I've been feeling under the weather so I'm just posting items I prepared beforehand.  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Shirt: Martin + Osa Blue & White Striped Button Down
Cardigan: LOFT Striped V-neck
Belt: Gap Floral Embossed Leather Belt
Jeans: Gap Always Skinny Cropped Jeans
Booties: Born BOC Tonya


  1. It totally worked! I can see myself wearing the same outfit. I hear ya on the weather. Stay warm and take care :)

  2. This works! It's definitely not too busy. The belt is a nice touch to keep the outfit pulled together. The bottom half is a little dark so I can't tell how the boots look. From what I can see, they're cute!

    I hope you feel better soon! Something is going around....

  3. Yes! Works! Not too much at all! I love the belt...and, of course, the sweater! :)

  4. This is a cute outfit! I like how you belted the cardy. :)

  5. I like it! Even though the belt is technically a neutral, it pops against the dark/blue color palette. It adds a nice amount of interest to the outfit. You could almost add a blingyer (I think I made that word up) necklace or even a pin to up the ante a bit. Very cute! =)

  6. So lovely. I love stripes! I think it definitely works!

  7. Great outfit, the X-shape works well for you! I wish I could pull that look off as well as you! =)

  8. I don't think there's too much going on at all! The dark jeans & boots really elongate you despite a longer-length cardigan. Hope you feel better soon! :)

  9. Definitely not too much going on ... I think this is perfectly styled! I went to F21 and saw your drapey striped cardigan, but restrained myself as I already had 10+ items in my arms. I really liked how it draped casually though and the price was go back!

  10. I think you look fabulous! Hey- is that belt old? I love it!!!

  11. You make me want to own this exact outfit b/c I totally see myself wearing it.

  12. This is not too much at all. The stripes in the button down are very subtle and so everything is in balance. LOVE this outfit. You look so tall though :)

  13. Totally works! Nothing is matchy matchy but yet still complements one another nicely. Yay for shopping in your closet! I hope you feel better soon though :)

  14. this outfit is perfect and i love the belted cardigan look! the outfit has a simple nautical feel to it and it's wonderful!

    cute and little

    Jean - LOL - I love what you picked out at F21! If you do wind up going back for the cardi, you'll definitely be a great inspiration for ways to wear!
