look book: pink stripes

March 15, 2011

I'm totally, completely, head over heels, in love with..stripes! Always have, always will be. If you looked in my closet you'd see that many of my shirts have stripes on them. In the hopes of not dressing in a uniform everyday {eek high school flashbacks}, I like ones with varying widths and colors. This one is absolutely perfect because it's pink and has sequins on it! woo hoo!
 top J. Crew, shorts Banana Republic, shoes Tory Burch, necklace Elephantine, bracelets Seasonal Whispers from Matthew! bag borrowed by Le Mode Accessories

Le Mode Accessories is one of my new sponsors and they carry some absolutely adorable items, like this Traveling Paths Handbag. It's name is fitting since it's been on one crazy journey. The bag has been to Elaine already and now it's on it's way to Sydney, and then off to a few other bloggers. I'm jealous of this trip it gets to go on! The bag is so stylish and roomy and I think I need one just like it for Italy!

  20. You do look amazing in stripes! I wore some today on the blog but I don't feel like I pull them off that well.

    But I love the details of this post- the way your shirt is tucked in for one. It's the small things that add character to your blog.

  33. I think you could justify a bag purchase for your Honeymooon...I mean, who knows what little touristy things you'll find?!
    I guess it's hot enough where you are to wear shorts....Grr.
    Cute necklace! Can't quite tell what shape it is...but from afar it's nice.
