I don’t know what it is, but once spring is in sight, I order almost every striped clothing item I come across. Something about blue and white stripes in particular just feels perfectly in season to me. I adore how classic and chic they are! Consider this your fair warning that I am sprung on stripes after a taste of spring with a few warm days, so you’ll be seeing them often here!
Since it’s not actually spring yet, I wanted to style this top for the transitional time we’re in. At the end of each season you start getting a few days here and there that tease you for the next one. The transition from winter to spring seems to be the biggest tease. The warmer days feel perfect! The sun is shining, people are more cheerful, and it seems that everyone is out and about. Then, you go back to a few cold and gloomy days. Here lately, it’s been gloomy AND rainy. It’s been hard to keep energy up and not just want to crawl back into bed! Because of this back and forth, it can be hard to know what to wear. I talked about transitional dressing for work last week here, but I wanted to talk about it for the day to day more today!
To style this dress for this time of year, I wanted to let the blue stripes and the subtle shoulder showing be the little bit of spring. White booties were one of my favorite trends this year and they continue to be something I reach for. The bootie is practical enough that your toes aren’t cold, but the white gives you a little taste of the fresh new season around the corner. I paired the look with black skinny jeans and a burgundy patent bag to darken it up a bit since we are still technically in the midst of winter!
You can actually wear this top off the shoulder or not, which I love. Its an easy way to style it different. It’s light weight, so it will get a lot of use in the warmer months, too. If you’re wearing it on a chillier day or night now, you can wear it up on your shoulders and throw a jacket over it. I would love this paired with a tan moto jacket like this one.
When it truly is spring, this top will look amazing paired with jeans and wedges or white jeans and heels! I feel like there are endless options. I’ve seen so many cute blue and white striped tops lately (and bought a ton myself) that I wanted to round up some other options for you all to shop, too.

I already ordered two of these! Whoops! Whatever. When you love something, just go for it. I’m sure I’ll order a few more before the spring weather actually sticks around. I’ll be just praying that it does each day until then! Just in case it doesn’t, I at least have a few vacations ahead to keep me positive and looking forward to something.

Did you all catch my post yesterday on balance? I’ve had kind of a rut week where I feel ‘blah’ (I’m blaming it on THAT time of the month), so I really felt like it was something a lot of us could relate to. I did break out of the snooze funk and worked out yesterday, and even have some new cardio circuits to add in to keep pushing myself through the week. I LOVE sleeping in during thunderstorms, so I’m patting myself on the back for getting up and getting something done yesterday. I hope you all felt a little inspired by it and that you’re having a great week so far! Thank you for stopping by to spend some of it with me. XO
