Get the look: bright stripes

Happy Monday!

Today for my “get the look” piece, I wanted to take an outfit that I was inspired by and bring it into the spring season! Because I live in Florida, I sometimes have to look longingly at all of the pretty winter apparel that most others get to wear. I’m not complaining, but sometimes you just have to adjust a style to your climate! This look from Daily Dose of Dana was one of those looks:

Isn’t it adorable? To be honest, this look is definitely one I could emulate during Florida winters…but the days of tights, sweaters, and scarves are pretty much behind us now (it’s in the 80′s). I thought I’d brighten this look up a bit for spring and summer…here’s what I came up with:

Pin It

Vila midi dress in multi stripe: ASOS $89.53 (I would remove the tie on the dress for this outfit)

Colorwash cardigan in fuchsia: Madewell $68

Colorblocked bow belt: ASOS $10.74

BP Paxton oxford flat: Nordstrom $59.95 (I tried these on in the store: they are SO soft and flexible…and cute!)

Blue bird stud earrings by Betsey Johnson: Macy’s $30

Aqua enamel printed bangle: Bloomingdale’s $35

Do you like adding a punch of color to your wardrobe in the spring/summer?

      I love that dress too…if only I had all the money in the world to just buy everything I saw that was pretty…sigh… ;)
