MNG by MANGO Mission: Paris Stripes

We've been to London and Milan, now it's off to Paris for our third MNG by MANGO Mission. In case you missed it, I'm going to Barcelona along with 9 other fashion bloggers at the end of this month to tour the MNG headquarters, and we'll be joined by the winner of the ELLE sweepstakes (which ended Monday, I hope you entered!).

This week's challenge: Style a Parisian-inspired outfit around something with stripes.

J'adore this classic Parisian print, so I picked up an adorable striped top with subtle puff sleeves by MNG by MANGO at jcpenney on sale for less than $22.

I paired my MNG by MANGO top with a faux leather skirt from Forever 21, Old Navy quilted purse and Modern Vintage wedge booties. Red lips and nails add a finishing French touch.

If you choose to take the challenge, drop a link to your outfit post in the comments section below. I'd love to see them!

Find the latest fall styles from MNG by MANGO, sold exclusively at jcpenney stores and online at jcpenney/MNG.

Very cute outfit. And FYI, entries for the sweepstakes ended last week, and the winner was supposed to be notified on Monday. Which I guess means that I didn't win! Pout.

My apologies!! I removed the mention to the sweepstakes to avoid confusion. Thanks for the reminder!

oh my! I was looking at the photos and thought the place looked familiar.

It looks just like outside of Woolsey Hall in New Haven, next to the law school! Is my guess right?

You got it! Isn't that plaza just gorgeous? It was the most Parisian-looking spot in New Haven that I could think of, hehe
