Stripey

 I'm playing stripe queen for a day! I said yes to graphic B&W and mixed color blocking with jail-bird stripes for a neutral mix with a twist! I've been feeling a little out of it lately, just overwhelmed and not myself. It's not so fun, but outfits can be the perfect pick-me-up ... and a little pattern play always does the trick!


// H&M Black White Color Block Full Skirt (similar) //
// Zara Black White Stripe Crop Top (similar here) // Zara Coat //
// Karen Walker Sunnies (similar under $60) // H&M Gold Rings //
// Black Coach Willis Handbag // Taylor Morgan Gold Link Bracelet //
// Kate Spade Booties (similar here) // Saks Belt from My Sisters Closet //



It's MARCH... so it's supposed to be Spring! But most days it's still too cold to wear skirts without tights ... and after months of doubling up to keep warm I'm SO OVER stepping into them. For this look, I opted for knee high socks instead! They kept me warmish without forcing me to pull on another pair of tights - where are you Spring!?
