I usually like to plan an outfit around one piece — a statement necklace, a printed blouse or a pair of killer shoes — and build from there.  Well today’s outfit was spontaneously jam-packed with a few of my favorite things: floral, lace and neon.  There wasn’t really a starting point — just a bunch of fabulously bright and punchy pieces from my closet coming together to make one heck of a colorful spring outfit.  Try it some time — you’ll never know what you’ll come up with!

Today, I thought I’d share another one of my fail proof style formulas: stripes and florals.  I’ve been wearing this combo a lot lately (last seen here and here) and as you know, when I find something I love, I stick to it!  If you’ve been wanting to get into mixed prints, this is definitely the playful pairing to get you started.  Take any thin-striped top (like this) and pair with different floral prints for a variety of summer savvy looks.
