I really didn’t have a theme in mind when I paired these two items together (top with stripe details and a checkerboard skirt):
But after wearing it, the first thing that came to my mind is: DINER. Remember those old Hollywood diner joints? The ones with checkerboard floors and the waitresses wear something either red or those with some striped detail? Well, that’s exactly how I think I look right now, haha!
Anyhow, the pairing does have a charm of its own nevertheless. I mean, it’s a little quirky but cute. And it’s definitely a fresh take on my overly used top, whereby I usually just pair it with either jeans or shorts.
Completed my look with an envelope clutch and a pair of off-white and mesh booties.
