Stripe mixing

Happy Thursday everyone!  Hope you are having a fab week so far.  Although spring is officially here, the weather says otherwise (morning lows around freezing) in my neck of the woods.  Just need to wait until next week for temperatures to hit the 70’s which I’m sooooo looking forward to right now!

Stripes are big this season especially in black-and-white (this color combo is another trend itself).  So I scoured budget-friendly Target to find some stripe-y pieces to create spring/summer ensembles.  Each look includes a key black-and-white item along with other striped pieces.  Yes, you can mix & match stripes no doubt!

This sleeveless stripe dress has a flattering silhouette along with varying stripes to add more depth.  Plus, the blue color adds a nautical feel.  Thin vertical stripes from this blazer (not clear in the photo) and horizontal lines of the dress complement each other.

My new summer swimwear craving is a black-and-white striped bikini.  I found a really cute yet wallet-friendly bikini set at Target.  You can easily swop out either top or bottom with solid blacks as well to change things up.

I’m a fan of striped accessories as well.  I’m thinking a stripe bangle bracelet and sunglasses to rock with the bikinis.  The look is totally crisp and cool, perfect for lounging at the beach or by the pool.
