Thinking of Spring? Why Not Dress like the French...

Hi Darlings:

Stars and stripes don’t only conjure visions of the American flag but are also considered French clothing staples for example and provide classic Spring or Summer looks that never seem to go out of fashion. Imagine the navy and white striped shirt with white pants. The French would have paired this look with the quickly knotted polka dot scarf loosely worn around the neck. What about a white dress with the stripe shoe? So, how would you wear your stripes? We must all agree that Jackie O always looked casual and sophisticated every time we saw her at play or leisure in her striped shirts and white slacks.

Pondering this I recently gave myself the challenge of creating looks with stripes for Spring within a budget of $150…lets see how it went.

1.) Dress: Gap European Collection $59.50; Shoes: Zappos Fitzwell $69.95

2.) Shirt: Forever 21 (white) $4.80; Shoes: Bakers Shoes Tenley Flats $25.95; pants: J Crew City Fit Buttery Twill trousers (white) $69.50; Aldo Nonio necklace $25

3.) Shirt: Bebe Striped Tuxedo Shirt $69; Ann Taylor Striped Embroidered A-line skirt $49.99

Ok so for the last outfit I pushed it BUT feel free to pair the items with something in your closet! I just could not pass on the shirt...loves its!

Hugs and besos.
