Print Mixing with Stripes and Floral with Nicole Lee


While visiting the People Style Watch Blog earlier this season,
I fell completely in love with Kristen Cavallari’s striped maxi dress (here).
May I be so bold and say that dress is “all that and a bag of chips”? Thank you 1990’s.

Well, it’s true.

With 51% percent of readers thinking the same, I thought it had to get made this year!
Fun fact, this was a photo from 2014 and it still made the list!

To recreate this Kristen Cavallari inspired striped look you will need:

  • McCall’s Pattern M6886, I used “Dress B”
    I use this pattern often, here, here, and here, it’s a dressmaker’s staple
  • Striped fabric, I got mine at Michael Levine’s last spring, you can find a similar here.

The only problem with Kristen’s look (here)?

It’s slightly outdated with her accessories, too boring.
Print mixing is so fun and on trend and easy to achieve,
especially if you have a floral and stripe combo like the look I have today.

Floral and stripes are the easiest way to work this trend!

When I spotted Nicole Lee’s Floral crossbody last month,
I thought it would be the perfect accessory for print mixing.

It’s amazing the interest one accessory can give to a look.
What caught my attention was the yellow color block detail on the side,
it’s a standout piece with a hint of understated glam.

It’s one of my favorite bags!
When is arrived last week, I squealed in delight, lieterally!
The kind of squeal that even alarmed my loud four kids! ha!
It also comes in three different styles (here, here, here)… 

Both the dress and bag will translate into the spring and summer seasons with ease,
and transitions great from the every day to a night out!
For this mama of four, it’s a HUGE deal to find a look that can wear in real life!

Until next week, thanks for stopping by and have a glamorous day!
