Black and white striped skirt

I'm so excited to share this post with you :)

Hi guys! I'm so happy to be sharing this post with you. I had always wanted a striped skirt. So when Zaful's package came on Monday morning, I knew it was going to be A-okay.

Here's who must wear/own a striped skirt-

1) You love stripes, duh?- I love stripes and my wardrobe doesn't do justice to show that. But, in all fairness; I do tend to pick something which I don't have already. Youtuber Ingrid Nilsen loves stripes and that's when I noticed how much variety there is in a simple black and white tee! Thank You(tuber)

2) You follow 3-shade is bae philosophy- One must wear a maximum of three shades in one's outfit. Have you ever heard of this fashion rule? I have always followed that; even in my color-blocking days. 
Since stripes already have two colors, you can pick the third shade from neutrals like peach and beige to deep tones like maroon or blue. I chose electric blue since the outfit was dual-tone.

3) Solid is boring- I've always loved me some hearts and polka dots on me. On 6 days, I'm mostly print and colors so I have absolutely no qualms in carrying disturbingly concentrated prints or colors. It should look good on me and excite the devil out of me.

4) Body pop- If you feel you're not full from behind or bottom down then horizontal stripes must be worshiped to, every day! On a serious note, vertical stripes make you look taller, horizontal; broader. Logic.

5) Feel like dressin' up- On one of those days when you have practically repeated your closet thrice in a month (weird), striped skirt is one for you. The ratio of people wearing a striped shirt to skirt is as far as Jorah is from Daenerys! 
No kidding. A striped skirt can definitely turn some heads (experienced today at the mall).

Speaking of, did you know women's necks are more flexible than men's? Apparently, if you call a woman from behind, she would turn her neck whereas a man would have to turn his whole body.
Ah! The keeping an eye everywhere. 

But, hey; don't let me decide that for you. You are a better judge of what looks or makes you feel good.

I wore a white chiffon blouse with this polyester black & white striped skirt. This bubble-like appearance made me want to twirl all day. Check out my instagram stories for the dance.

I'm wearing these peep-toe black pumps after so long that I almost couldn't walk in them. Any tips on walking like a pro in these needles? They almost make me want to give up on them and their sisters.
Please help :( I don't want to be a fashion blogger who is forever in bellies or flats. (although, swear by them).

    That's quite interesting that a woman's neck is more flexible than a man's, lol. Never knew that!
