Spring Lookbook Pt VII: Stripes and Wedges

I love stripes and think the trend will continue into the Spring season complimenting bold pops of colors. I'm definitely going to keep my Fall strips in my wardrobe for the Spring season. I like billowy shorts as well in soft linens for the Spring. I think the basic denim short will continue to be a Spring favorite but large vintage type shorts will also be in for Spring.
Keeping with the rosette details in an earlier post I love this purse from H&M! So so feminine and can be used as a clutch as well. I also love the larger leather off white bag as well for storing all my items in for those Spring picnics in Central Park.


I love these linen army green shorts I thrifted from Goodwill last summer for less than $5. They are super comfortable and go with just about anything. I like paired them with this soft pastel pink in the Top Shop Chiffon/Suede wedges. Also paired this outfit with a great vintage belt I got here at Beacons Closet in Brooklyn during a thrifting trip.

Color Palette


Keeping with my theme of wood and natural accessories I wanted to include a straw fedora to compliment this outfit. I cant wait for Spring...this is one of my favorite hats! This hat reminds me of one I saw Carrie wear in SATC and I feel so chic when I wear it. This outfit can easily be worn with the the Jessica Simpson Danys as well.
