In #OOTD Daily Style, Style

Sherry’s #OOTD Outfit of the Day Style & Fashion Look: The Mixed Stripes Look

I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.

The Mixed Stripes Look

Stripes on stripes on stripes!

The belt is striped, the dress is striped, the shirt is striped! It’s one of my TRUE FAVOURITES from my Capsule Wardrobe I did with 18 pieces, and I love mixing it all up because it all works together when it is all stripes. White and black and grey. Perfection.

The belt is taken from my mother’s wardrobe (another steal from Mama’s wardrobe), and the shirt underneath adds another nice layer to the whole look. The dress is of course, a trench shirt dress because I own no less than 6 of these in my wardrobe, and they’re so versatile especially as a dress and a topper!

If you want a similar trench-style minimalist dress, this one by Halston Heritage, is all-white (PERFECTION) but only in larger sizes (L to XL), and if you are a VERY LUCKY size 12, this one for $12 at Dorothy Perkins (good brand!!) is perfect…. or navy blue in a Size 2 from Dorothy as well.

I wore these brown chestnut Manolo Blahniks, but to be honest, I think I should have gone with a super bright, fancy heel, but I don’t really own any of those in my wardrobe, so neutrals it is until I can find something floral, or super bright.

I chose all stripes because I wanted to mix it up but with varying thicknesses. The shirt is a subtle stripe, the dress is a bolder one, and the belt looks more like a grey print than a stripe, unless you come close to it! Stripes of varying thicknesses and tones, all work great together as long as they’re in the same neutral territory (white, black, grey), and add some dimension and interest rather than it being all matching all the time.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
