Florals & Stripes

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 184 1

Top: H&M. Shorts: Old Navy. Shoes: Boutique 9. Sunglasses: Chanel. Watch: Michael Kors. Necklace: ASOS. Bracelets: Kate Spade Skinny Mini Bow Bangle, BCBG, Forever 21, J.Crew. Rings: Kate Spade Love Notes Bow Ring, Ardene.

 

Debuting a new (to me) print combination. . .florals & stripes!  Ok, I know it’s not so new, and I sound way too excited about this combo, but I’ve admired this pattern play from afar until I found the two perfect pieces to pair together.  This wild H&M floral peplum top and these bold Old Navy striped shorts were screaming in unison, “Wear us!  Wear us!”  Are you loving the floral & stripe combo this summer as much as I am?

      Thanks Kendall! I wore this last weekend to dinner at a friend’s house. Definitely can’t wear shorts to the office. Yes, I bought the top 2 weeks ago. It’s H&M Trend.
