Brown Paper Packages...

"tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things" Love that movie and song! My outfit definitely incorporates some of my favorite things: maxi dresses/skirts, stripes, and braids! Simple, yet chic. All of these pieces are great on their own; but, paired together definitely add up to a favorite moment! =)

I'm heading out of town the country again today on a crazy last minute trip to Bogota! I was supposed to be going to a friend's wedding in NYC--but, am now heading in the complete opposite direction! But as the great Marilyn once said: "sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together".





Top: Zara
Skirt (dress): Strut Boutique Austin
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Jewelry: Colombian, Gifted

  20. This is such a gorgeous look, and so are you! Really loving how you paired a casual Where's Waldo striped top with that awesome pleated maxi skirt! Truth be told, although my hemlines tend to be on the shorter side, I've been dying to try a maxi skirt as of late, even though I've avoided anything that goes past the knee because of how short I am. Haha. Fantastic look and I'm having some serious hair envy here!
