Stripes & Pleats

Pleats & Stripes

If I could choose one pattern in fashion that I can’t live without, it would probably be stripes. Then it would occasionally switch to polka-dots. I’m really all about both. Mix in a fedora, blazer & a crossbody bag and you’re all set. But really, how great are these striped sandals? Even though summer is coming to an end, these babies would be appropriate to wear into fall {make sure your toes look pretty}.

Carnival Fun

August 25, 2014

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 preset

I’ve always enjoyed carnivals and thought I’d been to some pretty good one’s when I was a child. Turns out I was missing out. The fair in Chilmark, Martha’s Vineyard now tops the list. I mean, apparently Reese Witherspoon’s been spotted there with former hubby, Ryan Phillipe. This fair has it all going on. Delicious food {I devoured a hot dog & ice-cream, per usual} fun rides, crazy contests and great  people watching. To top it off, my friend / co-worker and I spotted one of my favorite bloggers, Julia of Lemon Stripes. I was being awkward at first and was a little hesitant to approach her, so I didn’t. JUST KIDDING. We both did and it was well worth it. She’s awesome in person and even took a Rooey Knot’s headband with her.

Indego Africa - Final

Just the other day, I read an interesting article in the business section of Fashionista on how brands are teaming up with different artisan entrepraneurs in developing countries. One in particular, Erica Domesek, founder of the DIY site, P.S. – I Made This, partnered with Indego Africa this year. Money made through these collaborations help to fund entrepreneurial classes, like business management and training programs like english literacy. All of the products available for purchase on Indego Africa’s website are beautiful and one of a kind. Above are just a few of my favorite pieces. Shop the rest here!

Indego Africa also partnered with Nicole Miller. I’ve put together a few looks with some of the shorts designed by Nicole Miller. Shop the looks below!
