Stripes it is!!! I wore striped patterns all last weekend and it seems to be one of many popular looks this spring and leading into summer. I love the mixing and matching you can do with stripes and other patterns. You can mix them so easily with bigger and bolder prints or even smaller stripes. Vertical stripes also have the ability to make us look smaller, so they look good on any body type. Here I wore a striped dress by Almost Famous from Belk for a whole $15 dollars!!! I paired it with my favorite wedges from Charming Charlie that added an extra flare with the stripes in the bottom part of the wedge. The shoulder bag by Antik Kraft that I got at my favorite place for shoulder bags which is Marshalls also helps break up the color pattern and adds a symmetrical version of the stripes to the look. I finished off additional details with a necklace from TJ Maxx and shades by Forever 21. This is such a fun look and stripes are such a great casual look that can be dressed up or down. This look is perfect for a casual-chic kind of day.
Inspirational Thought of the day: Expect great things from God. If you are anything like me, you say you trust God but then worry yourself about everything even those things you have no control over. Or we get stuck on pass failures, heartbreaks, pain that keeps us in a fog of thought that tells us that there aren’t any good things out there for us. But what I have found is that when I expect the best from God my mind and thoughts are always positive and that’s the way I see the world around me even when the outcome is not what I expect I can still feel good about it. It’s because my perspective is not one of misfortune but more of what can I learn here, what’s the bigger story, or wow thank you God for revealing this to me. When I’m able to think like this I find that I’m much more able to see the smallest blessing in the worst of times. I can think things through clearer and have a better understanding about the things around me.
Wishing you Love, Light and Good Energy!
