seaworthy styles on my mind

I've never been a huge fan of stripes myself, but seeing them styled in so many different ways this season has definitely changed my mind. When I saw the Jeffrey Campbell heels on Modcloth (so perfect for Summer!) I couldn't help but create a little inspiration board full of nautical niceness. What I love most about stripes is their versatility; it's so easy to create both a casual beachside outfit and a girly nighttime outfit. Not to mention, stripes are perfect for mixing with other patterns and bold colours, transforming something simple to on-trend and blogworthy. How are you styling the stripes in your closet? Today I'm off to do some major shopping in downtown Vancouver, including a visit to the new Anthropologie store on South Granville which I have had yet to step foot in. On my to buy list: the perfect black bag, a bright clutch, trousers, a patterned top, and new jeans. And of course, I'll definitely be on the look out for a nautical-inspired piece to add to my wardrobe! Have an amazing weekend everyone

  4. I knew that bag was Kate Spade before I even saw the list below. The bag is cute, and I like the skirt as well. I don't have any stripes in my wardrobe as of now. It's mostly floral and polka dot dresses while everything else is relaxed and easy. I enjoy your blog even though I'm not really into fashion. Keep blogging!
