I purchased these lace up gladiator sandals late last summer, and I was super eager to pull them back out as soon as the weather jumped above 70 degrees this week! I love gladiator sandals and the bold look they add to any outfit. Although I was a little slow getting on board with this trend, I am so in love with the look of them now! When putting together this outfit, I started with the sandals and worked my way up. This simple black skirt is such versatile piece to mix and match with anything and everything… I have worn it countless times! For the top, I knew I wanted to wear stripes, but I wanted to add another fun element to the look, so I thought why not layer more stripes on top with a scarf? My love for stripes is at an all time high this season, and I love the contrast of the horizontal with the vertical pattern!
