Stripes+Stripes

I am a wimp when it comes to mixing patterns
but, I also love a good challenge.


So when I came across the stripes+stripes feature in 
In Style's October 2013 issue, I knew I had to at least try.

Striped dress H&M - Striped cardigan - Red flats Michael Kors 
I don't think I have ever been so happy about the
mix pattern outcome!


I felt so comfortable wearing this and kind of 
expected a comment on the double stripes.
But.. nobody said anything.

Gold rope necklace self made
My only mishap with this outfit was that I had to tug on 
my dress all day because it felt a little short.
I like to think it shrunk when I washed it, but we all know it 
could just be the ice creams making their statement.

Lol, at the ice cream! I love your creative necklace, and this is a great stripes-on-stripes look.

I really like this too! I've never thought of pairing stripes and stripes together before, but you do it so well with the dress and cardi! :)

And the dress doesn't look too short in the photos! :)

That is really striking, wonderfully stylish way to mix patterns. I'm not usually a huge fan of stripes on myself (they're great on others, don't get me wrong, they just don't tend to do my figure a lot of favours), but if I have two similar striped garments like this, I would totally follow your inspiring lead!
