WIW 6/30 Minimalist stripes

So I found this striped midi skirt and pleather fronted tank top at a local boutique. I think the skirt is similar to one Angie put in her finds recently. I sized up to large because the medium showed every underwear lump and bump.
I thought of doing a big necklace, then a bunch of gold bracelets, but finally decided to go minimal with my white Movado watch,  white calf hair cross body and LD Tuttle sandals.

    Skirt details? I just saw a maxi like this from Free People.

    I love the stripey skirt! :) You are looking so elegant these days! You do the minimalistic look so well.

  • annagybe replied 5 years ago

    I got the skirt and top here


    But here's the Vince Camuto version I was thinking of, just more expensive


  • MsMary replied 5 years ago

    Oh my goodness! This is a knockout look! You were so right to minimize the accessories and let those fab pieces shine on their own!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    KILLER to the power of KILLER


    ETA: You know you had me with the minimalist integrity of this outfit!

    Love it so much. I think you're hitting a new style stride lately and I really like it. More minimal but still distinctive.

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    I agree with the others - love where your style is going.

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    This may be my favorite outfit of yours recently.  BR has a striped skirt that I almost bought - now I'm reconsidering!

    Great skirt!

  • Raisin replied 5 years ago

    Ahhhhhh, you had me at minimalist too. B&W and striped...love!

  • Isis replied 5 years ago

    Amazing.  Such a strong statement in such minimalism.  Powerful.

    You look fantastic!

  • pil replied 5 years ago

    Kind of an oxymoron, but this is truly minimally spectacular. I really love this, Anna and hope the boy has an opportunity to see it too. You'll knock his hiking socks off.

  • Echo replied 5 years ago

    This is an AMAZING outfit on you; you truly look fantastic. I really hope the boy sees this, too - it is that flattering!

    Just perfect!  Glad you kept in minimal.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    A definite favorite!

  • MNsara replied 5 years ago

    WOW!  This is one of my faves on you :-)  You've been simplifying your outfits quite a bit lately, and the results are SO powerful and confident!!  I hope you felt every bit as fab in this outfit as you looked!!

  • replied 5 years ago

    Oh yes, very nice! I think the uncluttered look suits you. 

  • amiable replied 5 years ago

    OH yes!  My favorite of yours too!

  • AviaMariah replied 5 years ago

    So great!  I just pinned you to my Black & White fashion board (I hope that's ok).

  • abc replied 5 years ago

    This look is amazing.  Simple yet powerful.  Your hair looks really pretty, too.  

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeously bold and minimal.  Well, you may have limited time for fashion, but you are making the most of every minute!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    STRIKING. Something about the minimal b/w really makes your golden hair pop. Love it, makes me want to nab the Vince Camuto skirt to copy. 

  • Mo replied 5 years ago

    Logging in to say - this rocks!  Especially like that you kept it minimal.  Lets the outfit speak for itself without distractions of arm candy or chunky statement necklace.  Perfect.

  • chewyspaghetti replied 5 years ago

    Looks great- your hair is looking so fabulous lately!

  • Gabrielle replied 5 years ago

    You look incredible.  This is one of my favorites among your postings.  

  • rachylou replied 5 years ago

    I like the wide width of your stripes here. They have to be wide to be on-trend, and these are totally.

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    You knocked this out of the park!!!  Fabulous!

    You are making your free time count!

  • Ana replied 5 years ago

    Whoa. I completely love this outfit, Anna. You look so good! Enjoy the warmer weather. :)

  • Sarah A replied 5 years ago

    Amazing! Love the wide stripe and the cut of the top's hem. Minimal accessories was totally the right choice. Im pinning this one too!

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago

    Minimal style suits you so well, Anna. IK think this is my favorite outfit of yours!

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Anna, I'm not sure how I missed this but I had to drop by and say "wow". I love this on you. Stunning.

  • Eliza replied 5 years ago

    How did I miss this one?  Love the ease and simplicity of this outfit.  Each piece shines and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  Gorgeous.

  • Parsley replied 5 years ago

    I'm struggling to find a superlative that hasn't already been said. This outfit is STELLAR! One of my favorites ever.

  • Vicki replied 5 years ago

    How did I miss this, Anna?!  Thanks to Parsley, I was able to find this thread.  I am copying you once I get my VC striped tube skirt, which I just ordered today.  I love your outfit and while I have a fitted leather tank that probably won't work, I'm going to come up with something to "copy" you.

    Phenomenally fantastic, all of it.
