Do you ever feel like you need to step outside of your fashion comfort zone?

I tend to buy a gazillion new striped tops and dresses each spring. Seriously, it’s a problem. Even though I gravitate toward stripes, I’m playing around with fun new silhouettes this season to make the stripe trend look a little less prim and proper, and more fashion forward. When I spotted this dress, the cold shoulder and tie sleeve detail had me hooked! I love how on-trend the piece was, and how it could easily be dressed up or down.

Another trend that I can’t get enough of? The mule/loafer trend, of course! I snagged these metallic babies a few weeks ago and have been wearing them nonstop lately. They’re such a fun piece that will jazz any striped ensemble up (see here).
