American Girl



Teen Vogue exclaims "A is for Americana" in their Spring A to Z style guide.

This look isn't just for the neighbor's backyard BBQ on the Fourth of July, it can be worn until the first leaf falls.

After a recent "Instant Outfit" tackled the striped shirt, I have continually been drawn to them amongst the racks. "White shirt, black shirt, ruffle skirt... ah... stripes!"

It doesn't matter if it is a skirt, shirt, pants... I can't help it - I am all striped out.

In a recent stripe hunt, I found this amazing skirt. The three pleats in front and the red, green, blue and yellow stripes, just about did me in. I was in stripe heaven! Won't you join me...

I'll say, love your skirt more than Teen Vogue's dress!

There's something about you and Michael Kors shoes isn't there? You look gorgeous! If you don't mind me asking how tall are you? You just rock high shoes all the time and I'm really tall so I feel self conscious in them.

I'm in love with stripes as well. I bought a simple black/white sriped boatneck L/S top in the fall, and have worn it soooooo much! Love mixing stripes as well. Bring it on!

I do wear a lot of tall shoes.. and I am actually kind of tall (about 5' 7").. but I love how shoes lengthen the body, ecspecially if you are curvy like me. Heck, tall shoes are just kind of dramatic and I love that!

Your skirt is really cute. I'm also fan of stripes! Actually, just did a post about full skirts and I found a cute striped mexican inspired one. I even used the same dress as Teen Vogue as an example.
