Bring on the Stripes!! Closet Print Pairing..





Hi Friends; yes, if you noticed I have been doing some marathon postings the last few days. Blogging/writing makes me happy and with so much negativity going on around everywhere, I decided to just chill and concentrate on things that will keep me uplifted hence I decided to concentrate on the blog for a little bit.

In this post, I'm wearing my favorite prints of the season; stripes!! and I have paired it in three ways so this blog post is picture heavy. Stripes have been around in fashion for a long time and I'm sure everyone, guys included have got striped clothing in their closet. It is just that this season, stripes have become noticeably bigger and bolder and they have started getting into work wear and formal wear in very elaborate details. Striped shirts for work either vertical or horizontal stripes used to be very subtle but now this is changing. So, let's talk about my stripe pairings from my closet.


WORK STRIPES








This outfit is what I wore to work today. My work setting is fairly casual so I do wear denim to work. For this look, I'm wearing this bold striped tee that has a lacy v-neck that makes it look like a camisole and thus suitable to layer under the blazer. This black blazer is one of many. I have up to five black blazers in different lengths and fabric and this particular one is different from the one I wore to church on Sunday in this post here. The short length of this one made it very appropriate to pair with this tee. I added my charcoal color grey pumps to offset the dark colors on top and I was good for work.

                                                                              CASUAL STRIPES





For this casual look I wore to play with the kids at the playground, I just replaced my black blazer with this denim one I got from Target years ago. I could not resist it when I saw it on the racks and I have used it a lot over the years for times when I need to be casual and at the same time dressy. Throwing the denim blazer over the striped tee transformed it instantly from work to play and I wore J. Crew flats to finish off the look. I love to wear heels but when it is time for mommy duty like playing with my kids at the park, the heels come off for some comfortable flats I can run around in.

                                                                       DATE NIGHT STRIPES



For this evening look, I just hung up the blazers and let the tee shine and loaded up on accessories. The statement necklace, floral bracelet and cross body bag are essential accessories for a date outfit and though I'm not putting on the blazer for this look, I actually had it on hand in the car just in case the temperature dipped later in the night then I can be warm and comfy. I finished off this look with my "strappy" sandals from Chinese Laundry which complemented my stripe tee.
