[Linkup] Trend of the Month

Today I'm participating in a linkup hosted by the lovely Marion! Her trend this month? Stripes!

This was perfect for me, since I love stripes and own more striped items than I care to admit. I had just recently (as in, last week) recreated an outfit from the amazing Sydne that involved stripes!

It was interesting how I got here. I had pinned this outfit last summer and when I decided to recreate it, I was certain that it was the color contrast of cobalt and white that drew me to it. My first recreation of the outfit had me wearing a non-striped cobalt tank under the white blazer - and I just didn't love it as much! It made me rethink what drew me to pin the outfit in the first place, and I swapped out the plain cobalt for a periwinkle stripe - and loved the result! Although, I don't think the jacket photographed well in the lighting (it looks shiny?).

Sydne's style here

The Outfit
Top: Walmart
Blazer: H&M (summer 2012)
Jeans: JCPenney
Shoes: Target (same, seen in my Christmas vlog)
Necklace: H&M (summer 2012)

I think I like Sydne's open toe heels better than my closed toe ones, but I wore this in January while she wore hers in August, so I think I can give myself a pass.

Happy Wednesday, ya'll!
