This look features two of my wardrobe staples--a striped shirt, and a basic black skirt. Stripes are a very friendly pattern, playing nicely with both solids and other prints, so a well-fitting striped top like this one is the perfect outfit starter. This black maxi skirt was a clearance find from Target and happens to be the best maxi skirt I've ever worn. I have a hard time finding a maxi that is the proper length for my short legs, and without all the extra volume that many pleated versions have. Hopefully I can go back and snag the print version!
