Double Stripe


The weather has been fluctuating so much here lately - one day it's warm enough for bare legs & sleeveless tops and the next it's far too cold to venture outside without layers and a jacket.  This outfit was the perfect solution for the sudden drop in temperatures we experienced over the weekend...and also a fun way to experiment with mixing prints.





What I'm wearing:
LOFT sweater (on sale here), J. Crew blouse (this season's version here), Style & Co. jeans, MRKT wedges, RafÄ“ New York clutch, Necklaces: Vintage & c/o Christina M. Boutique (here), Michael Kors watch, Bracelets: Vintage & J. Crew, Target sunnies, Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst Coral

LOVING the small stripes with the side stripes. And the skinnies. And the jewelry, and the shoes....

Love that clutch! I'll be doing a series on leopard print this week...

L-O-V-E your pattern mixing! They all look great together, and love that bright orange. The weather is being totally annoying lately for sure!

I absolutely love this outfit - you look like you could be in a LOFT or J.Crew ad! :) I would never think to mix stripes like that, but now I have so many ideas to try with clothes of my own! Also, I will forever be obsessed with that clutch!
