Tuesday selfie

Today's look: I love you, Audrey. 

The outfit: BDG black and pink striped shirt; Lucky Brand Jeans corduroy skinnies; Aldo leather ballet flats; Cara Accessories Rhinestone stretch bracelet (@madewell.com); yellow spherical drop earrings (vintage); DIY top knot bun (click here for how-to).

The occasion: One of my favorite times of the day—-afternoon pick-up at the kids' schools.

Why I like this look: This outfit is built on the top knot bun I learned how to make, thanks to Jessica Quirk @ What I Wore (one of my favorite style blogs). The hairdo reminds me of 1950s Audrey Hepburn, which is why I went with the striped fitted tee, capri-length jeans and flats. Since I don’t like when colors are too "matchy" I picked a brick red bottom to create contrast with the fuchsia top. Nude-colored ballet flats complete the look. Ready to pick up the kids!
