Hello! This season, my hands keep reaching for stripes. I just cannot stop myself when it comes to donning patterns such as leopard print or stripes! The striped button down that I am wearing above is one of the latest additions to my wardrobe. I found it this past weekend at a thrift shop for just $1! I love how it embodies the sixties graphics/ stripes trend this season.

I wanted the striped blouse to be the focal point in this look so I paired it with basic pieces and a simple color combination. Black primarily dominated this look, appearing in my cat-eye sunglasses, backpack, ankle socks and vintage oxfords. I layered a stylish olive romper underneath of the striped blouse.

This look was very much inspired by two of my favorite bloggers- Natalie Liao of La Vagabond Dame and Julia Topaz. Like myself, Natalie is a fan of stripes and has been incorporating them into several of her looks this spring (I really love how she styled multiple striped pieces in THIS look). The simplicity in this look along with the ankle socks- vintage oxfords combo was inspired by Julia Topaz. All of her looks are delightfully minimalistic and her wardrobe contains an abundant supply of vintage oxfords and loafers.
