Blue & Black Stripes Downtown

It’s something about a two piece set that I just love.  I’m slightly obsessed with them at the moment to where I may spend hours searching the internet for them….I won’t tell you whether that is true or not.  When I first saw this set on the hanger at Forever 21, I have to say I hated it.  I hated it, but still decided to try it on because at $40, I just couldn’t pass it up.  After trying it on, the fit was perfect, but I was still unsure about the print.  I bought it anyways and said I’d just go for it.  I’m so glad I did.  I can’t tell yall how many compliments I got the first time I wore this – from man and woman!  I’ve learned over the years that sometimes you just have to step outside the box with your style.  Yeah, sometimes it’ll be a massive fail but I guarantee you more times it’ll be a hit.

I am a huge store shopper.  I “window” shop a lot online, but it takes a lot for me to make a purchase.  Trying to find the right fit with my body type is damn hard yall, let me tell you.  I’m small up top, with a small waist and then wide on bottom with a booty.  The pants to this set though were a great fit.  While a little snug over the hips (nothing that the print of the material doesn’t hide), the waist fit great and the length was perfect – I’m wearing a medium and 4 inch heels.  I highly recommend paying super close attention to the measurements given on websites when ordering online.  I have found lately that they are extremely helpful for me, especially when because of my body type, can’t always just buy one size and be safe.

Forever 21, SheIn and Boohoo are three of my favorite sites to shop for two piece co-ord sets.  While you can shop in store with Forever 21, SheIn and Boohoo are both online exclusive.  All three extremely affordable and accepts returns.  SheIn always has sales going on and right now they have an entire section of 50% goodies! Shop a few of those I have my eye on below, including this blue striped one!

  2. First of all, you’re adorable! I’ve been seeing a lot of stripes lately and was never brave enough to try them, but you look amazing in them! I might just give it a go!

  3. Gorgeous! It really suits you. Also, I’m slowly going from blonde to brunette so hair is the first thing I notice these days, and I love the colour of your hair!

    1. Thanks so much Olivia! I actually do my own hair! I highly suggest the balayage look once your back to your brunette base because it is so easy to maintain!
