How to Pair Stripes: And Getting Ready for Alt Summit!

Posted on: Tuesday, January 21, 2014

This is a very exciting week for the creative world!  It’s a colorful confetti mash-up of creatives, bloggers, graphic designers, you name it, all gathering together in a vortex of energy in Salt Lake City for Alt Summit!  I’ve been dreaming, scheming (in all the good ways), and planning my Alt schedule to make this one of the most educational experiences for me as a blogger and stylist and if it’s even half of what I’ve been dreaming it’s going to be, I’m in for one amazing week/end.

I’m road tripping it out there (sound familiar from my Austin post?) with a few darling friends of mine, Ana, of We Love Citrus (who happens to be a guest speaker, yay!) and Marcie, of REDSTAR ink.  We’ve got some fun road trip stops up our sleeve, which I’ll be Instagramming, surprise, surprise (make sure you’re following to see more..) making this trip even more memorable.   I’m going to be sharing the vibrant fashion inspiration that I see at Alt on Instagram too, so you’re in for a treat!

In the mean time, to properly prep my Alt style, I’ve got a fun and colorful style post today!  I’m pairing up stripes (which is another closet essential of mine in addition to the jean jacket) that you can wear with just about anything! (See how I paired up a striped shirt from this past post.) Stripes, which I mentioned in this nature post here, are so versatile, come in so many different forms, and are easy to pair with a variety of outfits.

Here is a colorful pairing using stripes, Art in the Find style, with a little fun and whimsy included, just the way I like it!  Alt, here I come.  Confetti and all.

    Oh my gosh how fun! And I’m so happy for Ana! I remember when I was working for her last year she was prepping to go to Alt, and now she’s a guest speaker!

    LOVE how you wore stripes here. Confession: I’ve worn a different striped shirt for four days in a row now. I have a problem.
