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.

Coachella 2016 Weekend 1: Day #3
_MG_3058edited.jpg

Well today I'm officially back to reality (sucks), but my mind is certainly still in the desert. Sunday is always my favorite day at Coachella. Everyone is in such good spirits come Sunday and they definitely packed in a lot of quality acts to showcase like Miike Snow, Flume, Disclosure, and Major Lazer (one of my favorite performances of the weekend!) for the last day. Nothing makes me happier than being in the desert with friends enjoying good beats! I wish I could do Coachella once a month, seriously! (too much? haha)

Going backwards and starting with my last look of the weekend, I opted for a cold shoulder crop top with a matching high slit skirt from ShopWantList, and it was absolutely perfect. My favorite part about the outfit is I can wear these two pieces together again or separately so it's really versatile. I've been loving cold shoulder tops all the time since last summer, but it seems as though this trend is on full force this year, with literally every celebrity and blogger sporting them lately. 

Before I left, I got my blonde freshened up by Mikhayela Curry, and I'm OBSESSED. I highly recommend her for color. Check out her  Instagram here.

Right now Farfetch has a great selection of cold shoulder tops. I put together some of my favorites that I've been lusting after for Spring and Summer. Farfetch is great because they have a bunch of designer boutiques in one place where it's easy to shop for high end well curated items. Here's some I found that I absolutely adore if you're looking to invest in this look. 

The gallery below you can shop this exact top and skirt set I"m wearing! It's a definitely a huge compliment getter, everyone kept asking me about it! You're sure to be a show stopper in this piece :)

Stay tuned for part 2 of this post- Days 1 and 2 at the festival and parties and some pics from the show!
