feelin' french

 Emerson lace and stripe top, Sass tutu skirt, Kmart platforms, gifted bracelet, Forever New belt, Australis lipstick in 'Cha-Cha'

I have been looking for the right striped top since, I don't know, the beginning of last year and finally found one. There's something really classic and chic about striped tops, reminding me of Audrey Tautou or something Alexa Chung would wear under a pinafore. This top added a classic twist to that trend though, with the lace. It's lovely and cool, perfect for Summer and was definitely hard to pass up (at $15!). I paired it with this grey tutu skirt, which needed a day out as I barely ever wear it!

Today has been relatively quiet, I watched the movie One Day and had a good cry after that (have tissues ready when watching that film) and am now re-reading the novel, as my love for it is the equivalent to The Notebook. I also made cookies and bought a new book to read for after I finish One Day. Beautiful Creatures is a book I've been wanting to read for a while now as I've heard a lot about the up and coming movie.  
I also wanted to thank you all so, so much for the amazing feedback (messages, emails, and comments) about my wardrobe post. I'm so happy to know I helped a few of you out with some tips and whatnot!! It made me so happy ♥ :) Have a fantastic day and don't forget to watch my latest OOTD video and subscribe to my youtube channel.

I finally found a good striped top top too! I love the way you paired all the different textures together in this outfit.
I swear we have the same taste in books/movies. One Day is recorded on my television right now, but I didn't know it was a book! Did you know Beautiful Creatures is going to be a movie?
Love, Evan
P.S. I was feeling french, too!

You look so adorable! I love that top so much - the lace is such a perfect touch!

I love 'One Day!' I read that book for the first time over the summer, but I haven't seen the movie yet. I'll have to watch it. Maybe it will be a good date movie. :P
