Bright Stripes

Right about this time of year, I switch out my wardrobe. The fall and winter items get stored away, and out come the spring and summer clothes. When I saw this dress, I realized I hadn’t worn it in a while. The last time was during spring of 2015. These bright stripes needed some love again. The thing is, the last time I wore this dress, I wore it with the cutest pair of metallic blue pumps. It’s hard not being able to wear high heels; I miss them so! But, my overuse of sneakers wasn’t going to stop me from these bright stripes. This time I pulled out my white Nike Air Force Ones, white frilly socks, and white sunnies. To add some pops of color I styled the dress with my new turqoise ring from Zoko jewellery and flower power turquoise earrings from India. The final touch was my second hand, cute as can be, little purse that was “Made in Mexico.” I love the way the flowers on the bag perfectly match the flowers on my ears. And basically the only thing that will fit in that little bag is my new tabasco lippy. (At Etude House, it’s such fun! You pick out your lip balm and then the perfect case to match. Yes, I’ll be getting more!) So, see! I can wear cute bright stripes with tennis shoes. I have to. It really is the only type of shoe I wear each and every day! So I will wear dresses with tennis shoes, but I will always still add frills, colors, and jewels!

    Goodness sakes you look just DARLING!!!
    What’s better than a little striped frock !?!
    Also, I think that the combination of short skirts and sneakers is really fun and something about the clunky nature of the sneaks makes our legs look slimmer! I think this is true for slimfit pants and leggings as well.
    The little, leather, tooled purse is SO cute!!
    I “get” the thrill of a perfect match with the earrings too, “Styling karma”

    • Styling Karma!! I like that. In fact, that might just have to be an upcoming blog post. Even a hashtag. Genius Jude! And I’ll take that compliment about the legs. Thank you!!
