Statements & Stripes



I have come to realize that I love bold stripes. Forever 21 recently hosted an online charity for Japan, donating 100% of sales for that day to the country. So I thought that was a perfect time to spruce up my spring wardrobe and help give. The majority of the things I was drawn to was stripey and fresh. Stripes are a little more demure and sophisticated, thankfully not as perky as polka dots.
I then read some posts over on the Table Tonic blog and loved Louise Bell's adorable blue striped shirt and bold red necklace. I was inspired by her pairing of statement necklace and stripe in my own outfit today, thus sparking this post (I have a black and white striped top from Forever 21 and a white and mint necklace from Anthropologie, both long gone on their sites).
Be bold this week!

Don't be afraid of color in your bold pairings! This Urban Outfitters Pins and Needles Striped Chiffon Blouse would look very crisp next to Anthropologie's Spectrum Frenzy Necklace.

The free pattern in Forever 21's Sublimated Brushstroke Top has a tribal vibe next to Anthropologie's Serengeti Beats Necklace

For a softer touch, Lulus Italian Creme Soda Strapless Dress looks lovely with the ModCloth Lacey Treasures Necklace and would be perfect for a tea party in the spring or summer.
