Two Striped Purple Looks

These are my two outfits for the What We Wore stripes challenge. The first one is from Friday, and the second one is from yesterday.

Striped Shirt: Old Navy; Sweater: Banana Republic (gift); Pants: NY&Co; Necklace: ?; Sunglasses: Express; Shoes: Poetic License via (shoo); Bag: Michael Kors

These pants are purple, but they never photograph that way. I guess that's a good thing that the color is so subtle.

Shirt and Watch: NY&Co; Skirt: self-made; Shoes: Kohl's; Belt: Luci Boutique; Bangles: Kate Spade

You may or may not remember, but this skirt used to be midi length. This circle skirt was the first one I made, and the length was just bugging me with this crazy fabric.

To fix the awkwardness that I saw, I chopped off 7.5 inches and re-hemmed. And now I think this is one of my favorite outfits. Not great for a windy day, though... I ended up wearing shorts underneath to combat against wardrobe malfunctions when my skirt spontaneously turned into a parachute.


  1. I LOVE your second outfit. I agree that the skirt looks better shorter.

  3. Bekah- I love your skirt with the white button up OUTFIT! You look amazing SIS!!!!

  4. I love the skirt! I actually clicked on your link from the What I Wore stripes challenge page to see where you got the skirt! Now I see it's self-made and I'm totally impressed.

  5. Love the second outfit and I definitely think the new length is so much more flattering on you.
