I love a good striped shirt or dress, don’t you?  There was always that negative “horizontal stripes are so unflattering” thing people used to say, and I get that.  But, if you wear them correctly and in a way that works with your body type, it’s very chic.  When I looked in my closet, I realized in the past couple of years, I have purchased quite a few striped tops (and one dress.)  I love the nautical vibe I get when wearing them, especially in the summer, but for now, I can make it work this season.

Since spring is hopefully coming sooner thank later (yes I know it’s January, but a girl can dream) I still wanted to pair my stripes with white denim.  To incorporate into my winter wardrobe, I added a lightweight black jacket that is slightly heavier than a blazer. I’m then able to venture out without being completely frozen.

When wearing a longer coat, I love to add some height with heels, because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not even close to”model” tall.

Here’s some trivia; what is one of my fashion obsessions this season?  If you’ve been following along, you should be able to answer this.  Drum roll……It has to be thigh high boots of course!  Off-setting the black and white with the taupe boot keeps it interesting and super cute.

For whatever reason, I forgot to add a bag for this look, but a cute tote or cross-body would look fantastic.

This week is busy compared to last week when my daughter was ill.  We have dance practices, appointments and I have a girls night out planned, which is much needed after being cooped up in the house.  Do you have anything super fun going on?  Share with me in the comments!!

XO
