Stripes and Dots

What I'm wearing:
*Joe Fresh Striped Top in Orange/White (similar here)
*Forever 21 Mint Polka Dot Dress (similar here)
*DV by Dolce Vita Aisha Boots in Taupe
*Zara Sweater Coat in Navy
*Mulberry Alexa Bag in Oak

I can't believe that I have bare legs in March! I do feel like I'm dressed for spring a bit pre-maturely, but it's so warm in the city today I couldn't bear the thought of wearing tights or pants today. Now if only the sun will come out... Orange and mint is one of my new color combo obsessions, and of course I'm always a stripes and polka dots fan! So I combined all of the above in today's outfit... just because I can.

Some have been asking me what I've been doing with my hair, so I just wanted to share that I've been curling my hair, but instead of using the clamp, I've been wrapping it around the barrel. I know that's nothing new, but I'd never done that before because I didn't realize how easy it was! I've been playing around with my curling irons lately and I use a few different sizes depending on how wavy my hair is. I've been using both the 1" and 1 1/2" John Frieda Definition & Curl Curling Irons. My hair also gets less curly, more wavy by the time I make it out of my apartment, I feel like I always take these photos right after I do my hair so the waves are a lot tighter. To be honest I'm in desperate need of a trim at the moment, so I feel like curling it hides that a bit!


  1. I never would have paired up orange and aqua blue, but now I will because of you! Your hair looks pretty curled, too. Which size curling iron do you like better?

  2. I love how the colors work here. I would have never put these two colors together, but it really works. Thanks for the styling inspiration!

  3. Your hair does look really pretty, it's fun to play around with different styling tools and techniques ;)

  4. omg. you look like Spring! That makes me so happy! We had SNOW here today in Seattle. Boo... no bare legs for me yet!


  5. You look gorgeous. Loved your outfit and bright colors! It's really a lovely dress for spring.

  6. That's a really gorgeous coat! Your hair looks great. I like to use those clipless curling wands to curl my hair. I could never figure out how to curl my hair with the clip on, lol.
