A few years ago, I’d never have ventured into mixing prints. I might have done something subtle — like tweed and a small Glen plaid — but never would I have done stripes and paisley. Since beginning my blog, though, and throughout my journey, I’ve quickly come to realize how versatile stripes can be and have become in my wardrobe.
What about you? What print is essential in your wardrobe?
I’m so excited for the long weekend ahead! I have both Friday and Monday off and am looking forward to a refreshing break.

The last time I wore this dress, I mentioned how bummed I was I didn’t get a picture of it sans jacket because of its neckline. A bold print and an asymmetrical neckline have the power to up a dress from ordinary to something more interesting and eye-catching. Details like that always draw me to certain clothes. I wore this dress to sushi last week. My roommate and I discovered the greatness of LivingSocial, Groupon and Amazon Local for trying out a few new restaurants, including this sushi one. Have you tried any of these sites for finding deals in your city?

After styling my staple of the month (this denim vest) two dressed-up ways (here and here), I wanted something slightly more casual. I picked up this tee from Gap a few weekends ago and love the vibrancy of it paired with these hot pink skinny jeans.
So I’ve paired with vest with a dress, a skirt and jeans. What would you like to see for the last May staple post?

Forever 21 is my sweet spot for jewelry. I can go in to any given Forever 21 and come out with some amazing accessories. The great part is that they’re inexpensive, but if you treat them right, they can last a long time.
This skirt is one of those I couldn’t exactly justify purchasing (even though I got it at Goodwill) because it just didn’t seem to be something I’d want to wear. The jury’s still out on the skirt, but I will admit I love the slightly more casual feel the denim of the blouse brings to the silk of the skirt.
I decided to venture into something slightly different with this month’s staple; rather than doing just a top, a bottom or a dress, I went with a layering piece that I have the feeling will be used more than just four times this month. I refused to do the denim vest trend for a while, just because it reminded me so much of my childhood. Then I thought, Why should I fear my childhood? I had a good childhood, filled with 90s backpacks, flower-printed jeans and — yes — denim vests. So here’s to embracing your childhood and ending up with a piece that is quickly becoming a weekly layering piece.
