Pretty Prep x PINKO: Honeycomb Knit Pullover with Striped Detail, Floral Lace Skirt with Striped Side Band, Aquazzura Strappy Pumps, Extreme Cat Eye Sunglasses and Jimmy Choo Padlock Bag


Nothing makes me happier than shedding tights – they rarely make the outfit better and invariably get snagged.  So, as the weather warmed up this past week, I couldn’t wait to be bare legged in the cutest PINKO set that combines some of my favorite trends.

For a post-work dinner with Sis, I wanted to keep the look relatively business casual with an oversized knit top and pencil skirt. Although the pullover and skirt are not sold as a set, various pieces from PINKO’s Spring/Summer collection feature a multicolor bold athleisure stripe. The slouchy knit honeycomb pullover with striped detailing is a modern take on college/tennis prep style and the red and blue lace overlay pencil skirt with striped sides is pure athleisure perfection – combining unexpected textiles and bold colors to create a truly unique piece.  I know, you’re suspicious of this overall silhouette, but I promise that a slouchy knit top and bias cut skirt is not only a streetstyle favorite, but it will work for both your weekend and work wardrobe (especially because it’s super forgiving after a large meal 😉 ).  I paired the set with a vintage nude Jimmy Choo padlock bag and nude suede strappy Aquazurra heels. Finally, for something a little unexpected, I wore large gold hoop earrings and extreme cat eye sunglasses (if you’re like me, you won’t spend a few hundred dollars on quickly passing fads, so I passed on the original almost $500 version by Celine and picked up my pair for under $10 on Amazon!)
