I think this is the best new combo. Easy, fun, and casual, stripes, sneakers, and chambray can’t be done wrong. Here I paired a striped mini t-shirt dress with a chambray top and my favorite Nike Internationalist sneakers. Tying the chambray top around my waist gives me some curves and breaks up the stripes. This look is great for summer, especially if you want to be comfortable in sneakers!!
The transition from Winter to Spring has been quite fast here in California! It is going to be almost 75 degrees this weekend! We don’t know about you, but we aren’t ready to give up our Winter style yet. Here is how we both (yes we both own the exact same outfit) like to throw in a little new Spring with our Winter favorites.
It is all really around the striped shift dress. You all know we love a good stripe! Even though you can wear this piece all year round, we are feeling it is very Spring forward right now. Mix in a utility jacket, which is also great all year round, and you have little coverage for the cold nights. I wear this utility jacket with so many different outfits- it is a staple for any wardrobe. Check out the ones at Aritzia for a variety of options.
Yes, this is another post about our love for striped pieces and our obsession with Schutz heels. But really, can you blame us??
As so many of you know we’ve wrote about stripes a lot so far on our blog. A LOT. We don’t need an explanation- stripes are awesome. They are such a great pattern to add to your wardrobe and they are absolutely the stars of our closet. If you look back at our previous posts that involve stripes, you’ll notice that they are extremely versatile- you can wear stripes in a variety of pieces and to a variety of different events (aka why we love them so much- who doesn’t love practicality?!?) We love this striped skirt Danielle is wearing here because its casual enough to wear to a summer party or you can dress it up to wear to work.
One look we are totally loving this summer is a striped t-shirt with high top converse and a fedora. How perfect is this for fourth of july or day at the beach? If you’re looking for something fancy (nails done, hair done, everything did…) we love a striped blouse with leather jeans. This would be great for a night out with the girls. Pair it with a pair of heels and it works equally well for a date night.
So go out their and make stripes the star of your wardrobe! Wishing you all a great week!

Get it Right, Get it Stripe.Every women fears horizontal stripes quite possibly more than most things- quite possibly more than missing Girls on a Sunday night, or when someone has your last sip of wine (no like seriously who does that..). We are taught from a young age… do not, whatever you do, wear horizontal stripes. We’ll, we’re here to say no way jose!!! We love stripes done right… Get it right, get it Stripes.
Stripes have to be in the right piece- often times the issue with horizontal stripes is there is simply too much. It becomes overwhelming- like is this a dress or are you wearing binder paper (WTF, much?). Lauren and Danielle enjoy stripes in simpler pieces, such as the t-shirt Danielle is wearing in this post.
Pairing becomes incredibly important with stripes. It is important to pick pieces that will compliment the colors in a unique way- i.e navy and the pastels. It really makes the stripes pop- in a good way. (One time Danielle wore this top with Red, same color scheme but not good. Uncle Sam anyone?) Danielle wanted something still chic but casual, so the wedges were perfect to pair with for a long day at work and to transition for drinks with friends- how cute are the tassels on the zipper??
Pastels are great in jackets because they pair so well with neutrals or classic white button down shirts. Not only are they on-trend for 2014, but pastel jackets are truly an investment piece worth making because they are timeless because of their versatility. Dress up or dress down, up to you!
We love wearing simple t-shirts and statement necklaces- its a great and unique contrast that we are currently obsessing over.
Get it right, Get it stripes!
