Stripes are a classic and are a great piece to get your feet wet with pattern mixing. Like leopard print, stripes are a pattern neutral (in my mind, at least), so they’re perfect paired with leopard print, florals, gingham, buffalo check, the list goes on! I’m absolutely loving this striped long sleeve from Nordstrom – it’s a little longer in the front and back which makes it perfect for tucking and legging-wearing. It’s out of stock online, but I would definitely check out your local Nordstrom store (I saw a few on sale at mine last week!).

Here are a few other striped tops that I’m loving:

I am absolutely loving this outfit for warmer days (it was 50 degrees out when I shot these!). It’s casual and comfy, but the heels elevate it making it the perfect outfit for drinks with the girls or an easy date night. If you’re not a huge chambray gal, this flannel is a super cute option! I also love the idea of swapping out these heels for these block heel pumps, they’re a more casual, classic option but still fun and sexy – plus the velvet is to DIE for! They also come in thirteen different colors so you’re sure to find one that works for you!

You can view the original post featuring the striped tee here and the ripped jeans here.

We’ve had quite the mild winter here in Massachusetts with only two spurts of snow but I am not complaining. I have a couple ski trips coming up which will be fun, but I’m trying to plan some trips for the rest of they year! Have you been anywhere fun lately? I’m open to any and all suggestions!

What are your favorite patterns to mix?

    So jealous of your ski trips coming up! I’m having a withdrawal… But this outfit couldn’t be more on point. I’m obsessed with wearing stripes and distressed denim. Classic, staple pieces that can never go wrong.
