Inspiration Monday: Striped Skirt

This time for Inspiration Monday January Jones was chosen. Can you say that the outfit of the Mad Men's star looks pretty close to the costumes of her character from the first seasons? I was inspired by her striped midi skirt, although my outfit doesn't have that late 50's or early 60's vibe. Actually, my outfit reminded me of the late 80's, when I wore culottes...now you know my secret - my striped midi skirt just hangs like a skirt, but actually it's wide pants.














What I'm wearing:
 culottes - Forever 21 // here
t-shirt - Forever 21 
sunglasses - Peter Pilotto for Target // similar
bag - Coach // similar
sandals - Etienne Aigner // love this one

Shop similar style:
