    Mixing Patterns: Stripes + Lace {And More Stripes}

    Zara linen striped top | Infinity scarf (brand not known-similar ) | Ann Taylor lace skirt | Miu Miu shoes | Kate Spade patent clutch | Banana Republic anchors metal bracelet 

    I am not a huge fan of wearing stripes from head to toe but I definitely like the idea of mixing stripes with other patterns like lace and floral prints. I also like mixing stripes with more stripes if the final look is simple and understated. You can certainly have more fun with stripes and mix up a striped blouse and skirt or even a striped t-shirt and blazer.  The secret to making these looks work is to vary the widths of the two striped pieces.

    Seriously, those heels just get better and better with each outfit. Kicking myself I never invested in something similar...the new styles just aren't doing it for me like the old Miu Miu:(
