Big / Little Style: Black & White Stripes

Even though Friday was the first official day of summer I have been breaking out my official summer bottom, the maxi skirt, for weeks now. I pretty much live in these things the moment the snow melts. Anything that makes you feel like you're walking around in a nightie is a win in my books...

I am loving this skirt in simple black and white. The stripes are such a classic look and go well with anything from denim to bright pops of colour. Here's how we're wearing our black and white stripes:

Big / Little Style: black & white stripes

I actually want to steal Alice's whole outfit, maybe minus the doll ;)

BIG STYLE:
maxi skirt: target, old (similar here)
top: old navy (similar here)
necklace: stella & dot, jolie necklace
bracelet: old (similar here)
nail polish: joe fresh, melon
sandals: joe fresh, old (similar here)

LITTLE STYLE:
denim vest: joe fresh (on sale in stores)
dress: joe fresh (new in stores)
jelly sandals: old navy
doll: melissa love handmade dolls

And some black & white stripes for the little man in your life here, here and here.

  1. I seriously need Joe Fresh clothing for Mila. They have the cutest things. I wonder if they sell kids items at JC Penny. I didn't see them online, but you never know!

    1. I hope they've got kids at JC Penney too! I swear half of Alice's wardrobe is from there!

  2. Love this post! My niece was rocking that denim vest from Joe this weekend too - it is ADORABLE! I'm also in love with maxi skirts because it feels like a built in blanket for chilly days at the office :)

  3. Love the stripes! I have been looking everywhere for a black and white striped maxi but to no avail. They must be getting snapped up as soon as the stores stock them.

  4. A striped maxi skirt never goes out of style, and it looks great with denim. I can picture myself in that black & white stripe skirt with a white tank and faded jean jacket. Oooh...now I want to go shopping!!

  8. My fave yet!!

    I agree, maxi skirts are the best. I live(d) in them before, during, & after prego, HA!! That's called versatility & longevity (talking to you, parachute pants). I need to venture into the patterns though....

  10. I could actually duplicate your entire big style [and actually, could do a damn close job on your little style too!] and just might do that tomorrow!!! Ha! Great choices as usual my friend.

    Love these posts.
