More stripes…are you surprised!? This color combo had lead every purchasing decision for spring. If I’m being honest that’s been the case for a long, long time #ifitaintbroke…and today I’m having a serious light blue moment.  #4, #5 and #10 are already in my cart (sorry, Nick) and how perfect would #14 be for Easter Sunday? There’s still time, people!! I know, I need to chill out.

But before I do, check these out:


Dressing Up A Striped Tee

I love stripes. If you looked in my closet, you’d quickly see that I have a big time problem…specifically in the blue and white category. My usual M.O. is to throw on one of these babies with a pair of jeans and neutral flats and call it a day – but recently I’ve been challenging myself to get a lil’ more fancy with it.

I found these pink pants at J.Crew and immediately knew they’d be a great work-to-drinks-to-bedtime-story staple (they’re that comfortable). I was really feeling jazzy here and added a simple heel and some fun jewelry and voilà festive.

What I love most about striped tees is they’re neutral territory so adding a multicolored earring gives them a subtle mix-print vibe and adds a fun element of color. I must have 5 or 6 different pairs of these earrings featured – they’re felt-back so they’re super light and from one of my favorite stores in Dallas, La Marque (which also happens to be owned by an awesome friend of mine).

Here are some of my favorite striped tees and earring combos:

I just can’t get enough of the pantone pastels this spring! With Easter around the corner, I’m so pumped to bust out my whites and brights (even though I’ve already had my white jeans on heavy rotations…evidence here). Right now, I’m on the search to find some coordinating (notice I didn’t say matching) outfits for Jack.

And some for the munchkin!
