Blue + White Looks for Spring: Mix & Match

Y'all my Southern soul is so happy that Spring is finally here to stay! Spring is filled with so many patterns and prints that it's hard to favor just one. I try not to pick favorites but if I had to narrow things down of course I'd go with florals and gingham but stripes are right at the top of my list! I find stripes to be so classic yet they have so much potential in various silhouettes and contrasting colors. A friend recently told me that this shade of blue was my color and every time I look at these pics I couldn't agree more! I love the way this color compliments my skin tone. Since these stripes are so fabulous and certainly versatile I thought it would be great to show you a few ways to wear them! I try to mix and match my pieces when possible so here's a few ways I did just that. In my wardrobe I need work clothes, casual, and "play" clothes.

 For work: I paired up the matching ruffle top and skirt to make a set. Initially I thought whoa too many stripes but since the stripes flow in different directions I think they compliment each other. Totally work appropriate and cute!

 Casual: Everyday is a casual day around the office but I pretty much stick to Fridays for casual wear. I paired up the ruffle top with my favorite white jeans for a take on a fancy casual look. I would totally wear this for hanging out with my girlfriends or a weekend hanging at the brewery. Wearing my favorite shoes of the season of course but if you need to take it down a notch, rock some gladiator sandals!

 For Play: Awkwardly enough I didn't grow up in a very casual household so the "play" category of clothing is hard for me. My dad had a military background and my mom a teacher = a overly dressed fashionista! To combat my lack of play clothes I often take the very pieces I fancy up and dress them down with some sneakers or core essentials like t-shirts.
Mix & match, a couple of pieces and endless possibilities!
