Stripes, Fedora and Boyfriend Jeans

I love Stripes! I can't get enough of them and although I have about 4 striped shirts, I just keep buying more! Stripes and Fedora's and Boyfriend jeans go hand and hand...don't you think?

I got this great necklace a few weeks ago when I attended Fashion Night at the W Hotel. They have an amazing boutique giftshop and I was like a kid in a candy store in there. I had to have this necklace as soon as I saw it!
 
 I have been eyeing these Steve Madden Gold Lame Platforms at Nordstroms Rack for about 2 months. After trying them on several times I decided to purchase them when they went on sale. Guess how much I got them for????...$25!!!! Real fashion STEELE!




 

Outfit
Top: Olive and Oak via Loehmanns
Boyfriend Jeans: H&M
Cardigan: H&M see it worn differently HERE!!!!
Necklace: Tuleste
Fedora: Random Shop
Platform Slingbacks: Steve Madden via Nordstroms Rack
Bag: I forget where..I've had it since high school

I really love this look. It's so Spring! Can you tell how much I'm ushering in Spring with my outfit post? I'm thinking of traveling some this summer. I want to go places with a lot of history and great shopping.
Does anyone have any tips of great places to go????

XOXO

  29. I really loved this post. Especially the shoes! I own the same ones in black, and bought them from the same place too. However, you got a better deal than I did. I paid $40 for mine :( I was afraid to wait for another reduction.

  31. Beautiful photos!
    I really like your shoes! Your hat is very cool as well. And you are right about the stripes ; I feel the same!
    I didn't know you had a cross tatoo on the foot : I want one too for two years now! Not exactly the same place (more on the ankle) and just a very very very simple cross. I really hesitate...
