Trend of the Month: Stripes

Today I'm linking up with Marion of Marionberry Style. She does a segment each month called 'Trend of the Month'. This month's trend is Stripes. I personally love stripes.

I have not fully embraced the practice of mixing prints. I usually play it too safe and pair my prints with neutrals. So, I've slowly been adding additional prints through accessories.  The shoes subtly add in polka dots.  I love the red heel on the shoes.  The scarf is a fun print, as well.

Lola always has to be involved.
Navy and Grey Cardigan: Gap (similar) / Red top: LOFT ($15!) / Grey trousers: Banana Republic (on SALE!) / Red and Polka Dot shoes: Madden Girl (similar)/ Watch: Target / Bracelets: Stella & Dot / Necklace: Tiffany & Co.

That reddish brown blur is Lola.

Add a scarf for a little pizzazz
Stripes are a very popular trend and are extremely easy to find, since they are popping up in every store.  Thanks for reading.
