striped blazer

bloggers do it better bold stripes

last weekend i went shopping with my mom and we saw this girl with THE cutest half up hair-do. when i told her i loved it she was so thankful and said she had watched a tutorial on how to do it. so naturally i decided to try and wear my hair half up. but of course it ended up looking like my 4th grade school picture “hair-don’t” instead. clearly i should have watched a tutorial. =) so this is why i only wear my hair parted straight down the middle. it just looks wrong any other way.

p.s. i am linking up with pretty, shiny sparkly today for BDIB. to see more black & white stripe outfit inspiration, click on the logo below.

outfit details:
f21 blazer (sold out but this is similar)
tinley road vegan leather shorts
peplum top c/o le lapin d’or

    I love the blazer! I’m addicted to stripes. Not so long ago, I took a photo of all the striped shirts in my closet and blogged about it. I have about 30 striped tops, and I tell anyone who I’m shopping with not to let me buy anything striped. I usually regret saying that because I always end up finding something that I want with stripes.

    I love that blazer. I have a similar one from kohls. Mine is shorter. I love yours way better. I think your hair looks good by the way. .

    Before I read what you wrote, I was thinking that your hair styled this way makes you look so young…I want to try it! Not sure if it would be as cute with my short hair, but I might go for it anyway 🙂 Love that blazer with your leather shorts – are these the ones you talked about bringing for FABB?

    Love the look. I am the same way when it comes to my hair. I will try something new and end up going back to the down straight hair. I feel like it looks funny (when done myself)

    That’s funny that you say that about your hair because the first thing I noticed about these pics was that your hair looks SO good this way! Check out Kate’s blog for all kinds of cute hair tutorials:
