Earn Your Stripes

In my opinion, stripes are a definite closet staple. A simple striped shirt to fun striped accessories can add some pizzazz to any dull wardrobe. Even though people tend to stay away from horizontal stripes out of fear of looking like a french mime or the hamburglar, I think when paired with the right pieces, a striped clothing item can completely transform your outfit.

I've paired a simple white and black horizontal striped dress from Old Navy (Similar dress can be found here.) and a military-inspired, utility vest from American Eagle. My cut-out, wedge booties are from Forever 21. I bought all of these items over a year ago, so I'm so sorry that I don't have any direct links!

My Noir Luxe Eye of the Night necklace and Adia Kibur Stockholm Bracelet are from LETOTE. I love the way these two pieces add a touch of glitz and sparkle to my outfit. I also have Essie's Peach Daiquiri on my nails. <3

Don't be afraid to mix Fashion trends that others expect to clash! Be fearless when it comes to your personal style. I honestly believe that you don't need to spend a ton of money to look effortlessly chic. My favorite outfits are usually inspired by pieces I already own. When a new season and new trends roll around, you'll always find me pulling pieces from the back of my closet, hoping to mix and match pieces for a new, unique look, before I even spend a single dime. ;)
