My favorite combo

February 1, 2012

I love love love stripes and blazers together.  For some reason, when I am wearing the stripe and blazer combo, I feel instantly pulled-together, it is my favorite combination.  For this look, I went a little preppy (again!) with the blue + red combination, but similar to what I did in my post last week, I changed it up a bit from the classic and expected look, and went with brighter hues, both in the red blazer and the stripes of the tee.  Let’s just talk about these flats for one second.  I posted them on Friday in Meg’s date night look because I already purchased them and loved them so much that I had to share them with you guys, too.  Well here they are making their real-photo-blog-life debut!  They are super comfortable and the gold adds just the right amount of fun to the outfit.

    You are so stinking cute. I love seeing your personality pop through in your blog. Love your obsession with stripes AND THOSE SHOES!!!

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Thanks sis!!!!!!! :) Love you!

  • Megan

    I have a coat that color and definitely need to pair it with blue stripes! This is super cute. A bit nautical :)

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Yes! Would look great with your freckles :)

  • Amanda

    I was eyeing those flats last time I was at Kenwood – seeing them on you, I need them!
    LOVE the color of the blazer. Looks amazing on you!

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      I got them at Kenwood! They are AWESOME! you need to get them – they were only $25 and they are really comfy!

  • Kelley

    This is a really great combo. I love pretty much anything that has stripes in it though, so I may be biased. I really like the gold in the necklace and shoes too. I would have to say that my current favorite combo is sweet dresses paired with chunky sweaters. I LOVE it!

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Ooooh sweet dresses and chunky sweaters – I am liking this idea!!!!

  • Alexa

    Oh wow. It looks great, and you are right you cannot beat that combo.
