Hello and thank you for visiting. I am so glad you are here. My readers are so important to me which is why I want you to know the links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.
You ever look through your closet and find that you have way over purchased one print or color? Well if that print is black and white stripes, I am here to help you out with 9 different looks featuring the monochromatic print.
I have a few patterns that I wear a lot, and stripes is definitely one of them as well as floral print and polka dots.
Black and white prints are so easy on a grab and go day. They go with every color or you can always just throw on a black cardigan or top and still feel pretty and put together. I have mentioned before that getting dressed helps me to feel motivated. Guarantee if you find me in my pajamas at 10am I have not gotten anything done. It’s good to have some basic pieces that mix together fast and easy for hectic days.
This knee length dress is from Old Navy, and hit me right at the knee. I’m just over 5’3″ so it is a bit easier for me to find dresses that hit me at the length that I prefer. I have no idea what the struggles are of a tall person.
I don’t know where to start with this look. This really affordable polka dot chambray top is from Walmart. They have really stepped up there style game. We’re most all going to be at Walmart at some point, and if you find yourself there, then you must at least walk through the clothing section, they have some gems.
Striped a-line skirt is from Cato Fashions, another one of my favorite places to shop, because it is always conveniently located and filled with skirts! I love skirts, I am really trying to branch out to more dresses, but I’m truly a #skirtgirl all the way.
Boots on repeat from Maurices and a simple white bib necklace from Burke’s outlet to complete this look.
I attempted to do some buffalo plaid with my nails, which completely failed. However the finished product was still cute enough to share, even if it didn’t end up looking exactly like what I was going for.
Using stripes in my dressed up denim look with this great thick striped top from Target.
Layered my striped top underneath a black blazer (Walmart) and my gorgeous statement necklace (Rue21).
I do love to accessorize so I added this great cuff from Burke’s outlet and leopard print heels from Poshmark. I love Poshmark, so many great finds on that site. Poshmark has a lot of previously used women’s clothing, handbags and purses. They even have designer names if you are into that.
Make sure if you are shopping on Poshmark you use my code “PDSMN” when you download the app to save $10 off your first purchase. I got these leopard print lovelies for only $8 on Poshmark.
Hat is from Loft Outlet, which I purchased during a great store wide sale.
I like to wear maxi skirts when I am planning a day of being out and about with my children. Wore this to teach the little 3 and 4 year old Sunday evening class at my church, and as I recall stayed all clean that evening.
This burgundy cap sleeve top is from loft and actually has a zipper at the back collar. My camel colored cardigan came from my go to place for cardigans New York and Company outlet. They always have cardigans in an array of colors.
Striped maxi was a wishlist item from an trip to J. Crew. I could not stop thinking about this skirt. It wasn’t on the list of things I was planning on purchasing that day so I left it behind. Later though, I was able to get it with a coupon during a sale (yay!) and I really love it.
Added my favorite bow pendant necklace from Kohl’s and some beaded bracelets to complete this look.
Okay guys can we talk about Poshmark again? I love Coach and Michael Kors, but I was really wanting a Kate Spade bag. I went looking at the Kate Spade website and then at my wallet and decided that it was okay to love things we would never own haha.
After explaining to my husband about the Poshmark app, I had showed him the Kate Spade bag I wanted was even on their! Still a little bit out of my price range, but still nearly half of what Kate Spade had it listed for on clearance. It ended up costing less than my slightly smaller bag from Coach outlet.
Did I mention that you save $10 when you download the Poshmark app and enter my code “PDSMN” ?! I hope you check it out and find something amazing.
I just love the herringbone style vest and was able to get it at a great discount at Jane.com. Really I just love the Jane website and have loved everything I have received from them, with little exception.
While we are talking about things I love from Jane, how about all things from the Sign Here Vinyl Shop. (Oh and Lucy and Lyla).
This tee shirt dress is the perfect weight and length for cooler days.
This is starting to seem like a serious problem, cause I’m hooked on saving money. This skirt is from Jane.com too. Yes, really. They have such great stuff at such great prices, and it is always so unique and different from what you see at brick and mortar retail places. I don’t know, I like being the only girl with the things I have in my closet.
Except for you guys, I want you to also have all the things. So head over to Jane and see what you love.
This striped dress is so gorgeous, and current and should be appearing on Jane a few more times as per usual with that lovely site. They often have things 3 or 4 times a season so if you love something and you missed it, it may not be too late. I often check the sneak peaks on the Jane app (they become available around 4pm eastern time) so that I know to shop early if they are going to be selling something that I like.
This striped dress is actually charcoal and white and is short sleeve and light weight and I love, love, love it.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back tomorrow, when I will be featuring a great swing dress that will be available at one of my favorite discount clothing site for only a few days.
