Stripe on Stripe



Lately, I've been trying to push myself to do more print-mixing using items I already own.  But instead of contrasting two different prints, I thought...why not mix two different colored stripes?  I have already done one look using this same idea in a somewhat subtle way (here).  Today's effect is much more bold and while it may not be for everyone, I think it's a lot of fun...plus quite festive in light of the upcoming holiday!




What I'm wearing:
Zara top (last seen here; similar here or here), LOFT skirt (last seen here; similar save or splurge), Gap belt (last seen here; similar), BCBG sandals, The Limited clutch, Accessorize necklace (similar), Bracelets: Sonoma (similar) & c/o Poshlocket (here), Lips: L'Oreal Target Red, Nails: Orly Lemonade

The stripes flow together effortlessly. The bow belt is a perfect for the stripe transaction. Such a lovely look.

I lie this. Since the stripes are the same size (or close) it doesn't look crazy. It actually looks like it could be a dress. Happy 4th!

Girl you always look so dang pretty and polished! What's your secret? I always feel like I look so frazzled in my pictures. Maybe that's because my 3 year old is usually with me and trying to run off... I love this outfit by the way! You look fab!
