Inspired Style: Stripes + Florals

- Outfits

Well it has been far too long since my last Inspired Style post (uh yeah… back in March?! haha) but when I saw the episode of Jane by Design with the yellow Zara blazer, a floral bustier and striped skirt, I knew I wanted to recreate this look.  I took my pale yellow vintage blazer (love the bright color better but I don’t have one), paired it with a dark gray tee and floral scarf for the floral part of the outfit and then paired it with my new striped maxi skirt (I wasn’t supposed to buy anything this month but for $12 at Nordstrom Rack I just could not say no!!!!!).  I loved the outcome and decided to wear this mixed pattern outfit to work. Nothing better than a fun outfit at work! What do you think?! How do you mix stripes and florals?
