Fashion Update: Hello Spring

All through the winter and colder months I find myself wearing dark and neutral colors, but now that spring is in the air I love to add in some more color…you could definitely say that I dress according to the weather.

Top: Similar / Purse / Sunglasses

With the sun and warm weather finally coming out to stay I find myself wanting to add more color into my outfits. I like how this top adds a little bit of color and it’s has a lot of movement, it actually looked even better when it caught the wind.

Jeans / Shoes

But I have to say that my favorite part of this look is the shoes. I don’t normally wear a lot of flats but when I saw these it was a match made in heaven. Target has so many great options for shoes this spring, it was hard to choose which pair that I really wanted. Here’s a look at some of the other great options they’ve got for the season:

For the Love of Stripes #1

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know how much I love stripes. It was one of the first boards I created.  I frequently incorporate stripes in my styling projects. At times, playing them up for a bolder statement, as a table cover in the setting below.

And a more subtle touch like the napkin rings in this table setting.

The thing that I love about stripes is that they can easily elevate the look of a space or an outfit without overdoing it because the stripes is so classic. While black and white combo, my personal fav, is timeless adding sophistication to the everyday, I love this pattern in almost every color combination.

I have been meaning to start a weekly column featuring round up of stripes but just never got around to it until now.

So, without further delay, here is the first installment of the weekly “For the Love of Stripes”. Enjoy!
