Summer Trends: Floral and Stripes

 Shirt, skirt - H&M, thrifted
Sandals - Michael Antonio

Welcome to the first day of Fashion Challenge: Summer Trends! Floral and Stripes. There's inspiration here and here if you're looking to play along but are stumped. I decided to pair these two H&M pieces. This is almost funny because I thrifted both items at different times and never thought to put them together. The best part? We don't have an H&M local. Thanks, Goodwill.

I also decided to do doodles to help me plan for the week, only a heat wave hit so if the doodles look kind of messy - it's because I've had to change around a ton of things. It's just too hot to wear everything I originally planned.

  2. This looks great together! I especially love the skirt. Don't you love when you buy 2 separate pieces, at 2 different times and then you realize they make perfect harmony?

    I have my gladiators on too in my floral/stripe outfit.

  5. I think you did a nice job with this challenge! Floral doesn't have to cover the entire top! It's a nice contrast to the skirt!
