Effortless Stripes

Stripes are my favorite pattern and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into my outfits.  It’s such a classic pattern that will never go out of style and I just love the way it gives outfits an effortless laid back feel.  Best of all stripes are super easy to dress up or down and can be worn as an accent in the form of accessories or even shoes.   During the warmer seasons stripe exude a nautical vibe but it’s such a versatile pattern that it can stand on its own in any season and in any color (although my personal fave is basic black and white).  Famous fashionista’s like Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian wear stripes flawlessly year after year but you don’t need to break the bank to wear this trend. Check out some cool striped pieces from Target below and how to incorporate them into your spring wardrobe.  Tip:  When shopping for stripes always keep in mind that the smaller the stripe the smaller you look – and that goes for accessories as well.

A striped linen blazer will give any of your basic favorites a polished look.  Wear over a tank or tee with cut off shorts or jeans.

Striped Linen Blazer – $30 | Denim Shorts – $20 | Graphic Tee – $18 | Quilted Cross Body Bag – $19.99 | Thong Sandals – $19.99

Striped tank tops are a must have for every season and style!  I have probably a dozen in tons of colors and styles and I let them peek out underneath tees, sweaters and jackets.

Stripe Cowl Neck Tank – $14.99 | Pleated Maxi Skirt – $20 | Pullover Shrug – $11 | Laverne Flip Flops – $14.99 | Chiffon Crossbody – $26.99 | Straw Fedora – $12.99

I love me a striped skirt!  A casual “Audrey Hepburn” like piece that’s perfect for spring and summer nights.

Stripe Skirt – $19.99 | Lace Top – $17.99 | Stripe Thong Sandal – $19.99 | Envelope Clutch – $19.99

A striped boat neck sweater is the epitome of spring!  Give it a go with bright skinny jeans and heels.

Stripe Boat Neck Sweater – $22.99 | Colored Skinny Jeans– $22.99 | Button Down – $18 | Pointy Toe Pump – $39.99 | Envelope Clutch – $24.99

This peplum and stripe dress is so chic and flattering (click here to see Kourtney Kardashian in a peplum and stripe outfit).  The peplum can help create curves and flatter those who have them while the thin stripes provide all the style.  Pair with a denim jacket and a colored belt for some extra oomph.

Stripe Peplum Dress – $24.99 | Platform Pumps – $29.99 | Satchel – $29.99

It’s Time for Springtime.

Booties All Year Round

Womens ankle boots have been around forever but last summer I noticed them making a stronger statement when worn with cut off shorts and summer dresses.  Thankfully the trend stuck around cause I personally love the laid back touch it gives and when you’re from Florida like me it’s a great excuse to keep them out all year round!  There’s a ton of designer boots for women to choose from and if you choose to invest in them like I do, you can easily get them for less at stores like Payless, Target and many more budget friendly stores.  Below are some are of favorite pairs from Jildor Shoes and what to wear them with for winter, fall or summer.

Add a little attitude to your cut off shorts this summer with these prune studded booties.  Tip: don’t let the color and suede fool you – these boots can easily be worn with bright spring colors or summer florals.

Collar Satin Shirt – $28 at Sheinside.com | Denim Shorts – $32 at HM.com | Belted Satchel – $28 at Yesstyle.com | Sunglasses – $8 at HM.com | Prune Suede Booties – $295 at Jildorshoes.com

These black ankle boots are the perfect pair to invest in.  I paired them with burgundy skinny jeans and a sweater but they literally go with everything and they won’t go out of style.

Another classic bootie that won’t go out of style and can be worn all year round.  Tip: tights and leggings make these boots even easier to wear, especially when transitioning pieces.
