Plaid and Stripes; Is This a Crime?

I have always heard that plaid and stripes don’t go together. Is it a bad thing? No, of course it isn’t, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best thing to wear. I once wore stripes and plaid without even noticing. I just thought it looked good together. But now when I tried on that exact outfit a year later, I thought it didn’t look so bad. I think the thing for mastering plaids and stripes is matching colors pretty well. For example, wearing a light blue and peach plaid shirt with a white and peach striped cardigan doesn’t look that bad. What would you do? Would you wear stripes and plaid?

Here are some cute styles of plaid and stripes:

Summer Maxis and Rompers

The best thing for me to wear in the summer is something that is comfortable and keeps me cool. I think Maxis and Rompers are the perfect thing to wear this summer. I love maxis because they can be beautiful, long, printed dresses that are very flowing so it’s very easy to move around. These kinds of dresses are perfect with a pair of shades and thong sandals.

Rompers are perfect to wear anywhere. There are also many different styles. They range from just one color to different prints. If I were to wear a romper I would either wear it with a pair of Vans or sandals, sunglasses (of course!!), and a medium sized belt to help distinguish the romper.

Shopping 5/19/2012


Yesterday I went to the mall and I stopped by Nordstrom, planning to buy some new shoes. I couldn’t decide between a pair of these beautiful Purple Pelmetto Women’s Classics Toms and a pair of these Vans Authentic Glitter Dots. I decided to get the Vans because they would be a little bit more durable than the Toms.
After that, I went to Forever 21 and I got a super cute lace top. I don’t exactly know what the top is called, sorry!
If you were to buy the Toms or Vans, you can wear them with a pair of yoga pants and a cute shirt…like the one I just bought yesterday.
