Black and White Stripes for Spring

This spring I'm loving the black and white striped combo that seems to be popping up everywhere. Today I wanted to show you a few on my wish list. Some are realistically in my budget, others not so much. But hey, a girl can dream right?


ASOS, $26.60 

I absolutely love this skirt, and think it would be a perfect transition piece for these cool spring mornings. 




This dress is just perfection. I love the feminine cut, and the pop of purple is so much fun. 



JCP, $21

This JCP dress is cute too if you want to try out multiple trends in one cost effective look. 



I love the cut of this dress. All the different stripes going in different directions? As a sewing newbie I'm awed with how perfectly the seams line up. 




I'm loving the kind of ombre effect of this dress. 




How can you not love this? That's all I can say. 

Also, I went to the Blogger Scene Spring Cocktail party last night! It was hosted by the lovely girls of Fashionably Broke and Ashley of Ashley in DC. I got to catch up with some of my favorite gals, Alissa, Erin and Erin and meet so many new friends!

I love anything stripy, so I am so in love with the beautiful and affordable skater dress from Asos, the sewing is just amazing. Thanks for this beautiful collection. There are some pricey in between it but maybe you can find similar one in a cheaper version :-) Good luck

I want one of each!! Especially that ASos one with the stripes going in all directions. I'm a huge stripe fan- I probably have too many to be honest
