Stripes on Stripes

Happy Wednesday loves! Hope your week is going well. Had a great weekend and the best part of it was my son's early birthday celebration with his friends. One of the fun parts about motherhood is planning birthday celebrations for your kids and since I only have one child sometimes I go overboard, but this year was more low key. On his actual birthday this past Monday, we started off by going to breakfast and then having another celebration with just him and I. He loves to have a celebration with his friends and then a time to have me all to himself.

I had more birthday cake than I care to admit, LOL. The outfit I am wearing is a subtle pattern mix with stripes on stripes in classic black and white. The patterns I tend to wear the most are animal print, stripes and polka dots and sometimes I wear all three in one outfit.

I definitely believe that true style is not defined by a name brand or how much something cost. I pair moderately priced pieces with high end pieces for a nice balance and I tend to favor classic pieces that never go out of style. A lot of my wardrobe consists of clothes I have had for years, but because the pieces are not trendy, you cannot tell that I have had them forever. I usually add the fun element into my looks with accessories, but keep the clothing simple and classic. I play with trends every once in a while.

Do you like stripes?

Have an amazing week!

I loved seeing you and your son's bday celebrations! Today is one of my son's birthdays (so weird to think that I now have THREE sons!) who is turning 10. It is always such a bittersweet time as a mother because you are so excited and happy for your child but at the same time . . . they are growing up. Love your stripes on stripes and I definitely agree with you about mixing expensive and not expensive pieces.

Nice pictures, LV! The side-way shot of the booties is too cool. I know what you mean about having pieces forever. I've had some of my items longer than some bloggers have been alive :)
As always, you look wonderful!
