Fashion Trend: Stripes

31 May

This summer stripes are popping up everywhere and I love it. It is no secret that I love everything preppy and nautical (seen here) and stripes are a major player in that trend. From rugby to pin, I love all stripes. They are versatile and can be paired with almost anything: patterns, floral, solids, it is hard to find something stripes won’t compliment. Recently, when shopping, I look around my dressing room and see stripes everywhere. It is a trend I am currently loving and can see myself loving for the long haul. Check out some of my favorite finds below:

Contrast Stripes: Forever 21 – $14.80

Tuxedo Dress: 71 Stanton – $161

Striped Skirt: Free People  – $78

Striped Canvas Belt: M  Missoni – $125

Striped Dress: H&M – $14.95

If I could only choose one hobby for the rest of my life, I would have to choose shopping. Some people may argue that shopping is not a hobby but the way I shop, it is. I spend most of free time engaging in activities that are somehow related to fashion and shopping. Whether it is reading a magazine, browsing stores online, window shopping, or reading other blogs with fashion advice, it somehow just always consumes my life. I thought I had already learned about all of the “cool” places to go online for everything fashion. However, today I learned about a new amazing tool.  It is called Polyvore. You can shop on all your favorite sites and pull outfits together. (Added bonus: you can even add a Starbucks cup!) I find my style is often evolving so this is really fun to try different combination’s and experiment. Recently I have found myself being attracted to Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Free People, and Tory Burch. So here it is, my first attempt…
