Show me your stripes

Tomorrow I leave for Dallas and I still haven’t packed, please someone send help!  I have to confess I actually hate packing, despite being one of the most organised people on the planet, packing is my kryptonite.  I suffer from over-packer-itis, with the constant thought of ‘But I might just need that’ always in the forefront of my mind.  Anyone else with me?  Let’s not forget Paris Fashion Week in September last year when I had a suitcase which weighed twice my own body weight…for 5 days!

For today’s look I’m heading back to those faithful stripes once more with this off the shoulder jumper (which is a total bargain!).  To keep the look casual I’ve teamed the jumper with my battered 501 boyfriend jeans which are by far the best denim investment I’ve ever made.  Levis really do stand the test of time and they are one of the only denims that get better with age.  I wanted to add a small pop of bold colour to the look so these red suede sandals were perfect lifting the look and adding some real street style appeal.  If you’re more of a flats kind of girl you could always team this look with a pair of on-trend loafers like these or these.  This is just one of many ideas on how to style your stripes stripes for spring, see more in this post.

Well I must go off and begin the over-packing but you can keep up to speed with all my travel antics and most importantly what I’ll be wearing over on Snapchat, Instagram & Twitter.

I’ve also added a ‘Shop My Dallas Wardrobe’ feature on the homepage so you can easily shop my outfits.
