I’m desperate for the weather to heat up because I recently got an adorable tunic featuring one of my favorite trends: floral on stripes! (Sadly, my dress is currently out of stock; here’s something similar from Juicy Couture.) I’ve rounded up some other adorable stripe/floral styles for today’s fashion sketches. Hope you love it!

I really love the mix of bold graphic stripes and soft easy florals (and, I’m not a floral kind of girl.) They’re fun, kind of retro, yet sort of modern too! I love UO’s soft and vintage take, or asos offers a subtle casual version.  However my all time favorite style is bold and colorful on neutral… a la J.Crew.

On a heavier note, I just wanted to share something I was reminded of recently: to appreciate ones we love, to not take relationships for granted, and if you have something in the back of your mind – share it because you don’t want to regret your silence. (My bff gets awkward when I tell her I love her, but what the heck. I want her to know!)

Most importantly, love life. Even when times are tough and it’s difficult to feel thankful – try hard to search out the gems that make each day special; focus on the positive.

Katie out.
