Stripey Stroll

16th June 2014

Okay, so there might be a chance that my stripe obsession is a wee bit out of control … and maybe this post is the proof. Today Waffles and I stole 5th avenue in non-stop stripes



Top: Zara Stripe Crop Top (similar here or here for under $10) (another version here)
Shoes: Keds Rally Cork Sneakers c/o (also in whiteorange or fun version here)
Bag: Moschino via My Sisters Closet – shop online for discounted designer resale
Sunnies: Karen Walker Super Duper Giant Tortoise Sunglasses
Headband: Coach Ponytail Scarf // love this stripe one (surprise, surprise)
Bracelet: Style This Life gold tassel bracelet c/o I’m obsessed
Bangle: Kate Spade Play Hooky Bangle

Normally, this is the part of the post where I would create some clever explanation for why I am wearing stripes for the thousandth time … but I’m refusing to apologize and instead blaming in all on my sever case of the stripes!

I think doubling up on your favorite pattern like I did here is a super fun and playful way to make an outfit-impact! The crop top & high-waist skirt combo show just enough skin to break up the pattern without ruining the print play. I added even more prints in neutral tones by adding a leopard ponytail scarf and my new favorite Keds Rally Cork Sneakers in polka dot! The use of tan blends with my skin tone to make these printed pops really neutral and help prevent the look from getting to pattern-crazed… I also love that they match my little french man as well, after all, he is the best friend and accessory a girl could have :]

Speaking of Keds their Brave Life Project will award up to fifty girls between the ages of 18 -24 a $1,000 grant to attend Keds’ Brave Life Summit in NYC this August!!! If you haven’t heard of the Brave Life Project, you are seriously missing out, its a great organization that helps girls be brave enough to follow their dreams! Enter here for your chance tor attend the Brave Life Summit – good luck!!!

pink && polka

28th March 2013

today’s look pairs pink with polka dots as i step out in spots.

for a day off full of running errands && getting settled into my new apartment i looked to the art of the dot for inspiration. with polka dot sneakers, dotted denim and a pop of color i can feel cute while still being casual. 
if you have a cropped or “bracelet length” coat, try layering a patterned long sleeve underneath for an unexpected pattern pop.
coat: kate spade // sweater: j.crew (similar) // top: h&m // denim: forever 21 // keds: kate spade // handbag: kate spade // gloves: kate spade // arm party: idioms // sunnies: miu miu
