Tuesday: Hard and Soft

Tee - Old Navy
Skirt - Ann Taylor
Shoes - Sofft
Necklace and Ring - c/o Kristin Biggs, Stella and Dot

I always love the mix of high-end with street, fancy with casual, tough with feminine. While this skirt could easily be paired with something delicate and fancy for a formal occasion, wearing it with a heather gray tee shirt is more my style. Speaking of this tee, this is not the same one I am wearing here - today's is more of a true gray while the other is blue. Such a fan, I went back and bought this old Navy tee in white, a dark pink, and classic heather gray!

    Love this look! I love the Old Navy shirts, too - I bought two of them and may have to go back for more. They're thinner than I usually go for, so I wouldn't wear them with a structured skirt, but they're perfect with jeans/shorts/floaty skirts.

  6. I like that they are thinner because they can be worn untucked and scrunch nicely. Usually an untucked shirt looks like a tent on me. I also know that I can un-knot this shirt, wash it and it will go back to its original shape! :)

  7. I love this look and you have inspired me so much.  For my little boy's birthday on Sunday, I finally got up the nerve to wear a very frilly hi-lo skirt, paired with a black tee and red espadrilles, thanks to your Kitchen Sink post.  I first tried the skirt with a striped shirt, and then got the idea for a black tee. You are helping me to improve my wardrobe by using what I've got on hand, and I really appreciate it!  :)

  9. Allie,

    The gorgeous Karen Kane maxi dress you wore the other day is now on sale and your WARDROBEOXYGEN30 discount code still works. That brings the dress down to $59.15 before taxes and shipping. Not bad for a dress that started at over $100. It's almost what I can manage and I might just go ahead...

    I thought that you would like to know.

    I can see why that would work better for you - I have no chest to speak of, so untucked shirts lay pretty good on me.

  14. I really like your necklace!!! Do you have a coupon code for it? It's quite pricey... :(

  15. Unfortunately I do not, but keep checking because they do put their pieces on sale. Also if you host a Stella and Dot party you get lots of freebies and discounts!

  16. I also love the tough/feminine, fancy/casual, leather/lace looks! Well-done! This is now one of my favorites.

  17. Attractive casual and stylish dress idea. This suits well for fat ladies, as it doesn’t expose stoutness.
