Fashion Friday: Updated Stripes

Let me start off by saying that I absolutely love the stillness of my house in the morning before the littles get up and being to ask/demand that their needs be met.  Just sitting listening to NOTHING but the sounds of chirping outside the windows, drinking my coffee and writing a blog post not one but TWO days in advance.  Hmmm, this is what it's like to not be rushing off to work/kids out the door.  I'll take it!













I am loving this new stripped shirt that I picked up at Winners a couple of weeks ago.  I never get to Winners and you need time when you do get there so it really never happens for me but I was out having a lovely coffee date with  a friend and we popped in and I walked out with this super cute top just in time for Easter.  I love that stripes are sticking around but have gotten a make-over, getting away from just the black/white and navy/white combos, plus they are including lots of trends such as cold shoulders, peek-a-boo shoulders, ruffles, bell sleeves.  This little top has just slight little bell sleeves and is pretty simple, but the color makes it pop and it's busy enough for me.  I added just a simple statement necklace, jeans and peek-a-boo shoes for a casual, yet trendy outfit.  The top was only $19.99 and the only thing I don't love about it is that it get wrinkly so you have to iron it.  Argh.  


 

I love the stripes trend and here are a few other items I'd love to add to my collection this spring/summer.

  2. That top is gorgeous and what a steal. We don't have Winners. This Spring I am loving pink+white pinstripes or blue+white pinstripes.

    P.S. Would you like to co-host Thursday Moda with me in a couple of weeks?! I'd love to have you Bojana. Please let me know. =)
