Right Now: Stripes


I have always had a place in my heart (and closet) for stripes, but I am especially loving them right now. They are easy to mix and match and look great with other patterns as well. The color combos, size, and horizontal/vertical change make it easy to fall in love with anything striped. I put together some of my favorite items in one picture above.

The Fourth

The Fourth

Happy (belated) Fourth of July! I just got back from one of my favorite places, Minocqua, Wisconsin. The charm of the small town is irreplaceable, and I didn’t want to leave yesterday. I love the Fourth of July because anybody can look festive in red, white, and blue. I ended up wearing a blue + white striped dress and a red purse. Nothing can beat stripes and festivity! Here are some of my favorite pieces for a reblite (red + blue + white) outfit.

Seeing Double

I love this new sweater, seen here on my favorite blog(Atlantic-Pacific), and I thought that it would be fun to pair it with another striped button up.The weather took a huge turn and it is now forty/windy/rainy. To dress for the weather, I pulled it on as an attempt at add a warmer piece to my ensemble. I also love the simplicity/visual interest of this outfit. What’s your new favorite spring piece?

I enjoyed a nice long weekend, and now it is time to get back to business. After sleeping in for three days, I am not sure I’m quite ready to get back, but I can look forward to a fun trip to Arizona in a few weeks… Wearing dresses without leggings and shoes without socks will be all I think about for the next two weeks!
