Inspired by stripes

Lately, I've been loving stripes. I see them everywhere: home decor ideas, clothing, and more. I usually consider myself more of a polka dot person when it comes to the pattern I love to wear, but stripes have been calling to me for the past month or so.

Check out these inspirations I've pinned and seen recently around the blog world:

Lately, whenever I'm in a store, I search out striped tops. I've been on the hunt for a simple striped shirt to where while pregnant (because I just can't wait until late July or August to wear one)!

Recently, I tried on several at H&M. I opted for a fitted one that shows off the baby belly. They also had a more flow-y style which I considered since it would be more kind post pregnancy too. But it had an asymmetrical hem and I just felt like it drew attention to my backside, which isn't necessary.

The black and white in the shirt lends itself nicely to pairing with another color. I can wear it with colorful skirts or cardigans in the coming months too.

What do you prefer to pair with a striped top or maxi skirt?

  1. i have been too!! i actually just bought a black and white striped tee similar to yours from forever 21 :) love it with the red pants!

  2. I love stripes, too: matter of fact, if you look in my closet you might think that's all I own. Not true, there's some polka dots in there, too. Somewhere.

  3. oooh what a fun little round up of stripes! I think that the fitted tee is SO cute, flaunt that baby bump!

  4. oh thanks for featuring me! also, your bump is too cute in stripes :)
