Spontaneity & Stripes

As much as I try to plan ahead, I find the spontaneous moments are always the most fun and memorable (aka booking a trip to Ireland on a whim). Lisa and I were downtown for an event one evening and running a few minutes late but wanted to get some outfit photos in before we lost the "good light," so we ended up shooting where we parked, right outside of Jake Melnicks


We didn't question the location or if we had properly re-applied lipstick as usual (#priorities)...We just threw down our bags and started snapping...as it turns out, we ended up loving the pictures. Not because of how they look or what we were wearing but because it turned out to be such a fun, carefree evening. Sometimes I feel like we put so much pressure on ourselves to make events or even small moments in our lives turn out a certain way but if we just learn to go with the flow a little more, we might surprise ourselves...

Speaking of going with the flow, stripes & army green is a fantastic casual combination. For the girl who wants to achieve the "perfect combination of sexy and cute," (any other Gosling fans watch this on repeat?), this is your go-to. Here are a few other blogger examples of how to wear the two together:

Top: 1 // 2 - Bottom: 1 // 2 // 3





Do you find that your favorite moments are planned or a surprise?
