Animal prints are nice, floral is swell, but for me few things compare to a good graphic print. Stripes, polka dots, checks, I love ‘em all. Know what I love more than a good graphic print? Two good graphic prints, duh! And as far as I’m concerned, the starker the contrast, the better. Give me black, give me white and I am a happy, happy camper. While I’m obviously no stranger to mixing spots and stripes, this particular incarnation feels especially fresh to me. Maybe it’s the easy, breezy flow of the blouse/pleated midi combo. Maybe it’s the marvelous balance between the black of the shirt and the white of the skirt. Or maybe, juuuuuust maybe, it’s the fact that this outfit makes me feel like I could leave work and hop a plane to Paris? I mean, a girl can dream can’t she?
