3 Ways to Wear Blue Pin Stripes for Spring and Summer

When it comes to prints for Spring and Summer one always comes to mind, and it's florals. As Miranda Priestly would say: "Florals for Spring? GROUNDBREAKING." While I love a good floral almost any time of year, this year it seems that stripes are actually taking the spotlight. They've been popping up on everything from statement tops to wide leg trousers, and it seems every it-girl is rocking a stripe in one way or another. My personal favorite way to rock a stripe this season? A blue pinstripe, and I'm digging it on tops as well as bottoms, or accessories! There's something preppy and pulled together about the classic print that can go with so much. It also has the tendency to class up a pair of ripped jeans. Below see two of my favorite ways to rock this pattern, and shop some of my faves!

1) A statement top: 

Statement tops are everywhere, and I can't help but gravitate to them every time I see them in a stripe. Here I'm wearing this fabulous off the shoulder flare-sleeved version from Azalea SF which goes great with anything from a skinny jean, to a wide legged pant, to a suede mini like I'm wearing here from AG Jeans. (Quite possibly my favorite thing in my closet right now, btw. It's such a stunning piece!)

2) A high waisted short: 

Stripes are notoriously tricky on the body but these are flattering since they're small and vertically placed. Put a pinstripe on a high waisted short or jean and it's bound to be magic. I love the blue and white on these and they're so fun to play around with for Summer. I've worn them with a pussy bow blouse here, but they'd also be great with a bodysuit or simple tee and sandal. The ones I'm wearing here are the Juliette short from AG Jeans

3) A striped mini bucket bag:

Nothing says "Oui Oui" like a striped mini bucket bag with fringe. I've been wearing this little guy with everything and I love the pin stripe to give it a little fun flare. Every time I use it I have to ask myself: "Am I French yet?" Unfortunately, no, but at least I can dress like I am ;).

Shop this one I'm wearing here: Calistoga mini bag, or here:  Calistoga mini bag in Vegan leather.

Fall 16 Wardrobe Staple: The Silk Bomber
The Style Sauce satin bomber street style fashion blogger

If you're like me, you've already been planning your Fall wardrobe and you're SO ready to break it out (coat season just get here already!). I always comb the magazines and my usual online publications early to know what's coming- and it's super fun for me to pick out the trends from the shows at NYFW, LFW, PFW, and MFW that I personally think will be huge for the next year (I'm like almost ALWAYS right, btw. ;)) It seems that every August I go through this end of Summer in between season struggle, especially since it's always the hottest in Los Angeles August, September, and October. Enter "transition pieces". This is always a big fashion challenge because it can be so weird to mix Summer things with Fall pieces that are heavy fabrics like velvet, leather, and cashmere. 

Here's where the silk bomber jacket comes in. It's already every where for Summer, but plan on this piece being even bigger for Fall. The cherry on the top of goodness with this wardrobe staple is the fact that it's light weight enough to layer over a flowy dress for the chic-est end of Summer look, yet you'll still be able to wear this bad boy over a sweater with a pair of your favorite jeans and a boot when it's freezing (aka 60 degrees in L.A., ha). 

Another reason I love this trend is that it's something that all body shapes and skin tones look good in. It really is universally approachable. Below I'm picking out for you some of my favorites for all budgets. What do you think of the satin bomber trend? Let me know in the comments below.

A Weekend With Mom
Mother's Day The Style Sauce Fashion Blog on the Venice Canals

Mother's Day is one of those Holidays that I think is one of the most important. It celebrates the women who have given us life, and there's really nothing I could think of that is more important than that. While my Mom lives just an hour flight away in Palo Alto, CA, it's been 5 years since she's come down to visit me in Los Angeles. Despite this, I somehow convinced her to come down for Mother's Day this year- and I was unbelieveably excited when she actually said yes! We had an awesome weekend in L.A. There's really nothing like girl time with your mom. We basically just shopped, ate, got manicures, and all of the things in between. Of course, the apple didn't fall far from the tree, and Mom taught me all the saucin' I needed to know from a young age. It's fun playing dress up with her, even now. Thank you Mom for giving me life and coming to spend an unforgettable weekend with me, I hope you'll come to L.A. more often. 

We took some photos near my home on the Venice Canals before our night out on Saturday- pictured here is three generations, my Mom, Me, and my daughter Ladybug (yes, I know she's a dog, but she is literally my child so it counts ok??) 

How did you all celebrate Mother's Day? Whether your Mom is close or far away I'd love to hear how others spent the day with their Moms, "Moms", daughters, or celebrating womanhood in general.. This stuff really gets to me, I'm one of those people that cry during Visa commercials. I'd say don't tell anyone but I just put it on my blog, so there goes my big I'm not sensitive facade! Who was I fooling anyways? ;)

Check out our Mother's Day style and let me know what you think! You can shop a lot of what we're wearing in this post in the gallery below.

While I love this pink hat from Lack of Color Australia with almost anything, it's especially cute with a flirty little black wrap dress and heeled boot. Perfect to take you from day to night.

Mom's sleeveless tunic dress is the perfect length and fit to dress up or down. We found it at a little boutique and I convinced to buy it knowing she'd be able to wear it with so much!
