Just Wear This! Black & White Stripes.

Spring is right around the corner.  The calendar says so.  Fashion week says so (since they’ve already moved onto fall).  Even the freaking groundhog says so.  Not sure why the thermometer doesn’t say so, but I’ve got to believe that it’s coming.

Dress for the weather you want, not the weather you have.  Or, um, something.

This spring some fashion trends I can actually incorporate into my everyday mom style are popping up in the style mags that litter my dinning room table.

At least that’s what the covers tell me, because no way do I have time to actually read them.

According to those covers, stripes (the mod version) and black & white are what’s up.

Lucky thing about that is I LOVE stripes.  And black.  And white.

Throw it all together in an adorable, affordable dress one can easily snag at Target and boom baby…

#3 made me pick this one because it twirls…

He’s such a fashionista.  Or, um, fashionisto.  Or whatever they call the Dude version of that.

I loved it the moment I saw it because in addition to the black & white stripes it has lace! Y’all know how much I love putting a little stylish lace on my body.

Pretty and flirty and twirly and fun.

Here are some fun black & white & striped all over updates for you this spring!

    Where/when did you get that amazing dress? I love the lacy back and the big twirlness of it! I have definitely not seen that anywhere at Target.

    You look gorgeous (as usual)!

    Stripes SCARE me…..thanks MOM! She says they make you look bigger if they are horizontal. They DO NOT make YOU bigger….you look lovely. I LOVE the shoes! Seriously jealous of them. They look comfy and cute. Also, love how well you are doing on WW! YOU GO GIRL!!

    I love the twirl picture!

    Every time I see these posts and my friend Sherry’s like this (she’s the fashion blogger at EF that does the Get the Look posts?) it makes me want to start doing some version of them so I get back to dressing myself better…. I’m starting to look like your old WNTW self. It’s not pretty my friend….

    I love stripes, but on me they need to be horizontal lest I be the female version of Beetlejuice.

    I LOVE THOSE OUTFITS! They’re so functional and cute and easy and doable.
