Sparkles and Stripes





I’ve been making an effort to add more color to my wardrobe, but I do like the flexibility of neutrals – you can pile on as many prints as you want and they’ll still go together-ish. Sometimes you just have to let your preteen flag fly with a polka dot skirt-sequin shirt combo.

    This is so adorable. Let that preteen flag fly! (but you definitely look grown up and sophisticated!)

    You have mastered the combo of stripes and polka dots beautifully! I have been eyeing that Jcrew sweater for awhile now and I believe it was just on sale?! I need to look into that… 😉

    Such a cute outfit! I love print-mixing. And that red brick wall looks vaguely familiar! :)

    Ha! Thanks Kate — yes, even 10 blocks away, the streets still looks pretty similar :)

    It’s hard enough for me to mix two patterns, but three? You did a great job here! I need to play more with my clothes. :)
