{Outfit Inspiration} Stripes & Florals

There is no hiding my love affair with stripes...especially since they are in virtually every room of our house, from my son's wall, to the Mudroom back door. So it's not surprising that my closet is chock full of stripey goodness, too. I love to wear them with almost any pattern, but paired with floral is my favorite preppy combination.

Stripes tone down the feminine sweetness of the floral, and black gives the whole look an edge.

My jewels are a mix of sweet and masculine too, with a black leather cuff, a blingy bracelet (thanks, Sheaffer!), and a delicate arrow bangle (thanks, Angi!)

Are you a fan of mixing up patterns? Do you have a stripe addiction, too?


See my floral and check combination here, and how I wear this skirt in Summer here.

  10. Stripes are a weakness/addiction for me...and come to think of it, florals are way up there for me, too...so let's just call this addiction perfection and I'll get to my Crazy Prints Addiction Anonymous meeting, m'kay? (c;

  16. Why have I never mixed stripes and floral before? Love this outfit!

  17. Ha! This is a great outfit and I'm not just saying that because I wore the exact same one only reversed today - I had a floral top (Target) with a striped skirt. Love the mix of floral and stripe. I am also obsessed with your sweater but I do-not-need-another-striped-top. That is meant to be a stern lecture to myself, not to you. :)

  24. I'm totally obsessed with stripes right now...and polka dots. Floral and stripes is actually one of my favorite combos. Sometimes I feel like a kid playing dress up if I'm all florals - like you said, the stripes give it an edge.
