I first tried this look out a few weeks ago and I thought it would make for a fun outfit post. Throwing together a sheer skirt, polka dot tights, a breton striped shirt and a paisley neck scarf sounds like a crazy combination, but I think it works. I've never been a neck scarf person but I really like the sophisticated and jaunty detail that a neck scarf adds to an outfit.
In this outfit, the purple paisley scarf helps to break up the severity of the black skirt and striped top. And I'll admit that wearing this outfit out, makes me feel very French and like I'm channeling a little bit of Grace Kelly or Audrey Tautou. Who wouldn't want to feel like either of those gorgeous women?
What initially started as a straightforward outfit shoot soon turned into a Kerouac cat focused post with the naughty cat making his presence felt as we played in the veld grass. So you'll have to excuse there being more cat pictures than straightforward clothes pictures, I just couldn't resist putting them in.
Outfit: Skirt - Woolworths (also worn here), Shirt - Twist at Woolworths, Stockings - Woolworths, Boots - Aldo, Neck Scarf - My mom's.
I hope this inspires you to try out some unique clothing combinations like polka dots with stripes and even try out wearing the neck scarf!
