Stripes on Stripes

IMG_0768This is definitely a “might be too much but go for it” look. And I’m glad I did. It wasn’t planned, though I was dying to feature this fantastic VB for Target skirt. But for me that’s fashion. You get something new that inspires you, and you let it fly from there. Contrasting stripes (or patterns, like my last Flower Power post) are on the fashion radar, so I just decided to put my spin on it. I also wanted to shoot in front of this really cool new JC street art. So…kismet I guess.

Ruffles, Stripes & Flares

img_1484I know, I know…smile. But sometimes you just gotta put your game face on. I would wear this outfit for a business meeting where I need to wow their socks off, or for date night (wow the Hubs) or for GNO (Girls Night Out, wink). Think you get the idea…it’s a look you can wear anywhere, almost anytime — with individual pieces that can change up other looks in a flash. This ruffled jacket (which is kind of channeling Chanel, no?) with a white tee and jeans? Polished. The striped tee with white jeans and silver sandals? Beach chic. (So love the glittery elephant patch.) And these cropped, slit-hem flares from Who What Wear for Target? Simply genius. So comfortable, so flattering, so versatile. I will be wearing them ALOT. They would be amazing on a trip, especially when you want to just do carry-on. To finish it off, a sleek grey top-handled bag and strappy but walkable heels.
