What I Wore: Walk Like An Egyptian



Ahh, my good ol' stand-by outfit: stripes, skinnies and riding boots.  I would say this is what I look like 90% of the time, in different color variations.  You will see this sweater again in yellow and gray.  I will probably pair it with dark denim skinnies. Possibly the same boots.  When something works for you, I don't see anything wrong with wearing it as much as humanly possible.


What makes it feel fresh and new is how you accessorize.  I found this amazing necklace at Forever 21 for-wait for it- $9.  It reminds me of this Dannijo piece, that would set you back a considerable amount more.  If I could afford it, I would have a jewelry collection full of Dannijo pieces.  And Lizzie Fortunato pieces.  But until then (aka never), I am more than happy to find Forever 21 replacements.  


I get a major Cleopatra vibe from the necklace.  Which of course reminds me of my favorite 80's song "Walk Like An Egyptian".  Those Bangles sure knew how to party.

  3. I am totally with you on the re-wearing. If it works, go with it - and great stripes + skinnies and boots always work! Same with F21 jewelry knockoffs...

  6. Too funny! I do the exact same thing.. If something isn't broke, don't fix it- right? I'll fall in love with a piece and wear it over and over until I find a new piece to love... That's the best way to shop your closet! You look great and love the necklace...Thanks for sharing!
