You want my stripes. You love them. Spring loves them. Honestly, Club Monaco loves them a little too much. Stripes are the new plaid (minus the perpendicularity).

So what, it’s not Spring yet, and if it weren’t so obviously winter this past Saturday night, I would have worn this outfit without any tights. I almost did. Thankfully my friends reminded me about getting out of cabs, ha. This dress (is actually a shirt) and was too short to bare it all. I have no secrets, clearly. My point is: I can’t wait to store my leggings away for months and replace my plaid with stripes. Leggings and plaid deserve to be punished. Both of them.

Be amazed by the studio photography: Shannon took it up a notch.

dress: Only Hearts by Helena Stuart
watch: Michael Kors
shoes: Forever 21
earrings: bamboo hoops from Philly! (bringing it back)

I love how your shoes mimic the dress. And I agree. Spring can’t come fast enough. I’ll be watching that sneaky groundhog next week.

So cute to match the stripes in the shirt with the stripes in the shoes. Love this look.

i can’t believe those shoes are from forever 21! they look like they cost about a million dollars. brilliant find! (and you’re right, i totally do want your stripes).

Comment by Lisa

*sigh* I desperately wish that forever 21 carried size 5 in shoes!

You’re good!

My first thought from this outfit was, “Those shoes are so cute, I bet they were expensive.” Then I saw they are from Forever 21! No way! I wonder, are they comfy? I might be heading over to forever21’s site now to see what else they got 🙂

ha! no they hurt my feet so badly… actually wouldn’t recommend wearing them all around Brooklyn! They are cab shoes. 🙂
