Spring Essentials: Multi Colour Stripes

After last month's haul in all shapes and colours, you thought I would probably stay away from stripes, didn't you? Well, thats what my husband thought! This trend is what did not let me! Stella McCartney's deck chair - inspired stripes seemed one of her unique ideas but suddenly I am seeing these multi colour stripes everywhere. They seem the ideal thing to pair with those nude and white jeans, blazers and accessories, we all stocked up on. Check out the pictures below and click on them to shop!

How not to love this? That Pim+Larkin skirt is so adorable. I would buy each on of them , if I had the money. Since I don't I would probably go for the neon sublimated stripe top from Charlotte Russe and the Pim + Larkin skirt. So much love!

And because its friday and I haven't done a styling post for some time , lets use this opportunity.

Alice+Olivia skirt - $295
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania top- $$215
Tory Burch espadrille sandals - $185
J.Crew clutch - $98
J.Crew necklace - $50

I loved this Alice + Olivia skirt, the minute I saw it. I wanted to go for a bohemian look without looking busy. So, I paired the skirt with a simple peasant top from Vivienne Westwood. The Tory Burch espadrille sandal was pretty much a match made in heaven. The J.Crew clutch pulled in the nude part of the sandals and the skirt together while complimenting the colours of the skirt. The J.Crew mint green bead necklace highlighted the green which was at the risk of being overshadowed by the yellow. I chose to not highlight the orange part of the skirt.
While this look is playful, just swapping the clutch for a nude quilted one would take it to elegant. How do you like this look? Which pieces would you go for? And would you get into the multi coloured stripes trend?
