Stripes for Spring

bright stripes for spring

Everyone looks good in stripes. It's all about finding the right stripe. This super-soft flowy top from Splendid is perfect for drawing attention up. Since I'm, ahem, rather small on top, I can wear wide stripes. The good news? It actually bumps up my chest. Woohoo!

I love the easy simplicity of this look. I paired the new Splendid top with a red Splendid scarf (a gift from BonBonRoseGirls K) and old zip up ankle pants from LOFT.

Now lets talk about the other accessories... there's the Tieks Cardinal Red flats (you can see my Tieks video here--it's a love-fest) and the bag was personalized for my by Talbots last holiday.

And the bracelet is from me to we. ABC Education Rafiki Friend Chain ($10). Every unique, handmade bracelet sold equips a child for school for one year, empowers a Maasai mama who earns a fair wage to send her children to school and helps you, the consumer, make a socially conscious fashion statement. Proceeds from the ABC Education Rafiki support the gift of education in Free The Children communities.
