From Paris With Love

Is it just me? Any time I wear black and white stripes with a pop of color, I automatically feel super Parisian. Haha maybe it’s just me. I like to change it up by adding my favorite/signature color, violet fuchsia instead of the typical pop of red with black and white stripes.

How to Wear Stripes on Stripes

Remember this post? Apparently I cannot get enough of stripes. Stripes feel timeless, classic, and instantly put together and chic. Stripes on the upper half of an apple shaped body can be a hard sell, but one way to make it work is to add even bigger stripes on the bottom half of the body. What do you think?
