Stripes, Jewels & Handbags

Image Source: wearespdrpee.com
Stripes... to wear, or not to wear?  We women sometimes fear, or stray away from wearing stripes, especially the bold stripes or the horizontal ones.  Why is this?  It's all because of an old fashion rule, which says they are not flattering unless you are very slim.  This is all untrue.  All you need to keep at the forefront of your mind when you are choosing your clothes is that the garment fits properly.  Stripes can be fun in your wardrobe and they are no longer a trend in fashion they have graduated to Fashion Staple status!
Take a look at some of these stripe outfit examples below.  I hope that you get inspired to wear stripes the rest of this summer and this fall.

You probably see this look a lot.  This is a popular "preppy" look, yet it always looks good.  A crisp clean great go to comfortable good look.  Add any pop of color to change it up however you choose.

It's A Shoe Thing!

What makes women want drawn to shoes?  Will we ever know the answer to this question?  I really don't think we will.  It's like men drawn to cars, they can talk about them any time, or turn their head when they see them.  We turn our heads when we see a beautiful shoe, we even buy them if they aren't comfortable because they look good!  It's a shoe thing!  Women love shoes and they make any outfit complete.  So, go for it ladies, fill your closet!  Here are some picks that I found from the 2015 styles that are popular on the streets.

Larger ankle straps are very big this year and look great!  I love this pink, black and white combo.

The comfortable wedge is a great look for a more dressed up casual look.

I love these salmon leather lace ups.  The straps look wide enough that they wouldn't be bothersome.

This lace up is a choice is a good option the side and back detail add comfort and great style!

This is my favorite style.  Just a little platform in the front adds more comfort with the height of the heel, so you can wear the higher heel and have that high fashion look.  These shoes are gorgeous!

The tall boots are for everyone and YES they are always in style!

I really love yellow.  It is such a bold color and states such confidence when you wear it.  If you are one of those people who feel you can't really wear yellow, you don't have to wear it next to your face.  Add a touch of yellow.  Try yellow as an accessory or wear it as a bottom piece, such as shorts, pants or a skirt.  Take a look at how mustard, lemon, canary, sunflower... all of these shades of yellow are brightening up summer for these ladies in this week's street style looks.
