black sweater + striped skirt

On Monday I mentioned that one of my favorite outfit formulas is blazer + top + skirt. My second favorite is sweater + collared shirt + skirt/pants (1, 2, 3). I got this sweater at the end of February, and while I wasn't particular excited about it when I bought it, I'm particularly happy about having it on a day like today. It also made me happy to have an outfit that was really comfortable, and yet looked put together enough for a Friday. This might just become my new casual Friday formula. What do you like to wear on Fridays?

Necklace: via Amazon | same style

  1. Love the color combination of the pink and mint with the black and stripes :)

  2. I'm with Kimmie; I love the color combination. This skirt just looks so great on you. I'm a blazer, blouse, and jeans on a Friday kind of gal. Of course, in that combination, I am dressed up compared to my colleagues. Everyone else uses casual Friday to be SUPER casual, but I just use it to wear jeans in a somewhat fancy way. (I think my brain says "blazer instantly fancifies any look.")

  3. Ooh! Another fabulous color combination! You're making me think I should wear more black to make my accessories pop :)
    Lately I've been going the casual route on Fridays by wearing my olive skinnies.

    1. It wasn't even my intention to make the necklace pop! I didn't even realize I did that twice this week. You definitely should do it :)

  4. Love the pink and mint together! You look really put together, especially for a Friday! Aren't those Old Navy skirts the best?! I wish all my skirts were that comfy and stretchy!

  5. Love how you mixed pink and teal with black and white. Stopping by from link up.

  6. Love this outfit. So going to have to recreate it one day.

  7. This is really cute! See? Having a black sweater is definitely nice for easy days like this. Maybe the sweater itself doesn't excite you but it can be worn in some exciting outfits!

  8. i love the pop of color, kate! a button-down underneath a sweater and skirt is probably my favorite outfit combination, too. it always works!

  9. The mint necklace pops so much against the black top you're wearing. I always love a good black top, and this is exactly why. So cute :)
