What to wear with a striped sweater? more stripes of course! Pattern mixing has crept its way into main stream style, and pairing petals with polka dots is starting to become the norm. But normal is boring, so I decided to step out with stripes on stripes for pattern pairing with a twist!
I snagged this sweater for next to nothing at the Tommy Hilfiger sample sale while I was working there in Production last year! It’s such a fun twist on a classic that I knew I would be able to wear it for years! Plus, you can’t help but smile in an all-american brand!
Since I chopped off all my hair & went strawberry blonde (read all about it) I haven’t been able to rock my usual topknot, until now! I have started using a curly pony and a few pins to simulate a faux-knot. Some of my strands are too short to stay up so I just let them hang free. It’s still a work in progress, I feel a little like Mugatu (Will Farrell in Zoolander), but it’s growing on me. Maybe once I’ve mastered it, I’ll post a tutorial for all the short-haired readers.
one set of stripes is never enough, so today i doubled up by pairing stripes on stripes with other b&w patterns. plus i reveal the winner of our wire wrap giveaway!
we’re at the weird time between winter && spring where we’re all itching to step out in color but the weather isn’t taking the hint. so a color pop serves as the perfect cure, because it gives you just a little touch of spring to get your fix!
bold black && white prints are what’s trending for spring 2013! try mixing your matches, doubling up on one pattern or both to make a graphic && trendy look!

Spring into this season in stunning stripes, paired with bright spring basics!
This look is all about working with spring basics: colored pumps, bright studs, a bold bag (it makes the perfect color pop piece), fun bangles and a simple cardigan or jacket.
Saturday, I ventured to the fabulous french market for a relaxing brunch date with my sassy grandmother, amazing mother and bestfriend Dené.
So I thought this look was perfect for this fabulously french affair.
When I think Spring I see bright colors, flirty prints and having fun with fashion!
By pairing stripes on stripes with some spring basics, you too can be stunning for spring.
