Pairing Stripes with Stripes

Top: Gap (on sale!)
Skirt: J.Crew (similar, similar, similar)
Shoes: DM David Meister (similar, similar)
Necklace: Bauble Bar (similar)
Bracelets: Bauble Bar, C. Wonder, old

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!  Mine was very relaxing and I spent Easter Sunday with my family.  We are always running around so much it was nice to take some time and catch up with them.  I also dyed my hair a little lighter (see here on Instagram), which I love!!  I will take some outfit pictures and show you guys later this week.  

As you know, I've been obsessed with stripes recently.  I've had this J. Crew skirt for a while and normally wear it with a solid color top (here).  When I saw this striped top at Gap, I knew I wanted to try to wear it with something other than white jeans, so I decided to pair the two together.  For someone who normally only wears one pattern piece at a time, this was big step!  I don't know if it will be a regular occurrence, but I really liked the stripe on stripe.

How do you guys feel about the wearing matching patterns?  Is it something that you will be trying out?

I'm very excited to be the featured blogger on Paige's Stylish Tuesday link-up!  Check it out here!

Have a great day!

  3. I'm liking the stripes on stripes here! It actually took my eyes a little bit to realize that it wasn't a dress with all one pattern of stripes. These flow really well though, and I love the coral necklace you chose to go with it. (Also amused that your top looks just like the one I posted today for an Audrey Hepburn-inspired look!!)
