One of the running gags of my closet (you know, when I do my closet comedy routine) is that I don’t own a white shirt or black slacks. I have to force myself to buy basics because I’m more of an emotional shopper. I go right for the thing that grabs me. This top definitely falls into that category. It’s like boom! Shirt! I kind of love that about it. I couldn’t resist getting all nutty and pairing it with this black and white striped skirt, because, do I really need to tell you? I no longer own a black skirt. Good thing awesome stuff like “color-blocking” and “mixed prints” are in style or else I’d be that silly person walking down the street wearing a bunch of loud patterns that don’t go together. At least the enlightened closet owners out might understand me.
