Stripe Story


Top: Thrifted / Skirt: Ross / Jacket: Max Studio / Purse: Amazon / Sunglasses: 99 Cent Store / Necklace: American Eagle

On my continuing kick of pattern play, I whipped this outfit up in less than a minute (my typical Monday morning strategy). By sticking with a very basic color palette of black and white in classic silhouettes, in pieces that I always feel my most confident in, I was able to create a fun and effortless look. It’s one of those outfits that is the brain child of lack of clean laundry and a severe case of the Mondays, but I can safely say it will be making the regular rotations now. Dressed down with white booties it was perfect for work, though would pair just as perfectly with some cute heels for a date night or even some mules for weekend wear and warmer temps. 

Mint Condition

This dress combines all my favorite spring trends into one fantastic piece!


Dress: Saylor / Jacket: Old Navy / Shoes: Steve Madden / Purse: Like Dreams (similar)

What happens when you combine stripes, mint and bright colorful embroidery? You get one very happy girl, that’s what! I knew as soon as I saw this dress that I had to wear it. When it comes to trends I tend to stick with pieces that only incorporate one at a time. This piece manages to balance multiple trends (the mint, the barely-there stripes and brightly colored embroidery that’s almost rainbow)  in just the right way without being too much. It was absolutely perfect for an evening spent sipping rosé on the patio counting down the days til summer is officially here.

 

 

 

 

 

Up Next

I’m clearly on a stripe kick and I’m not mad about it! 


I love the playfulness of a good stripe and while I grew up being warned (“stripes can make you look bigger, be careful!”) to wear them with caution, I’ve always loved them!

I plan on rocking the bomber below with both the skirt and dress as well as seeing how many fun ways I can mix all these items up with classic pieces from my own closet (like my trusty leather jacket and red booties).


Which of these is your favorite? Mine keeps changing!
