A Stripes Party

After I did my guest post last week on how obsessed I was with polka dots, I realized I should show a bit more diversity, like stripes.  Of course instead of just adding a bit, I go completely overboard.

{Shirt: F21 (old), Shorts: Old Navy (on sale!), Shoes: Seychelles (old), Necklace: Nordstrom (old), Bracelets: David Yurman, Alex and Ani}

You guys can't blame me.  Instead, you should be proud of me.  When I first put these shorts on, I instinctively pulled out a polka dot top to wear with it and I had to consciously tell myself to put it down.  The next best thing was a striped top!  Happy shopping!

If it isn't polka dots, it's stripes. Anyhow, very nice outfit. Your comfy and cute style shines again with this wonderful post of yours. It's also interesting going with different-colored stripes for both the top and the shorts. The necklace and sandals are very nice finishing touches to this look.

Haha, you're so funny! I like that you went completely overboard. Your top is subtle enough to go perfectly with the bolder shorts. I love how you added the teal/green necklace and shoes; they're great pops of color that balance out the entire outfit. Another lovely Maylee look!
