Spring Stripes and Plaid

Wearing pastel striped dress, green sweater, statement necklace and holding pastel plaid bag.

A pastel striped dress paired with a plaid bag creates a fun Spring outfit.

These photos were taken over the weekend when I wasn’t feeling to well due to allergies. As I was editing them I noticed my face is quite puffy, and a quote from a blog that I read last night popped into my head, “fashion is more about attitude than the clothes.” And that is so true. The outfit here usually looks amazing when I’m feeling normal, but because I wasn’t feeling to swift it didn’t look good in many of the photos. It was also a bit chilly out so I added a sweater under the dress and then topped it with a statement necklace to further bring out the colours. What do you think of this outfit? Do you think fashion is an attitude rather than the actual clothing?

  1. I love the color palette. Soft and very spring like. I like the mix of prints as well.

    1. I'm feeling a bit better, I've been taking just pieces of advil for headaches and it's helped a lot. Thank you Missy May :)

  3. I think it works both ways. I feel that many items of clothing have a personality of their own, but their vibe may change depending on other items we pair them with. Every outfit can be seen as a statement, a collection of various pieces yet what matters most is how we wear it. It is us that give it a finishing touch. Our vibe is the most dominant one and can change any item of clothing and make every outfit a winning one.

    I was feeling a bit puffy today as well. I had 3 dentist appointments in two days, but once my face wasn't swollen, I feel much better in the outfit I was wearing. Spring can be both wonderful and tiresome (many struggle with a feeling of tiredness during Spring and I experienced the same at the beggining of the month). You look lovely in this photographs, I didn't notice any puffiness but I noticed that you weren't smiling.

    This is a very feminine and stylish outfit. That dress is magnificent. I'm very keen on stripes! Plus, I really like how you styled this dress with a top under. The necklace and the sandals with high heels finish this look beautifully! Such a gorgeous styling!!! I love your dressed up sense of style. It is very refreshing in the sea of casual chic outfits one sees every day (not that I don't like those, but it is nice to see more lady like ones for a change).

  7. You are wearing Manolo Blahniks???? That is so cool!! I can't even tell that you were sick while taking this photos and I can't see any puffiness on your pretty face! I totally agree with that quote...attitude determines the outcome of what one is wearing, I want that bag, it is giving me life and the plaid dress is too chic, you are a stunner dear!

  8. I love the colors in your dress! I usually layer pieces over summer dresses but I love how you layered a sweater underneath! Personally I couldn't tell that your face was puffy at all. Hope your allergies get better :)

  12. I guess fashion is attitude more than clothing. That dress reminds me of Easter due to the colors, very pretty for spring.

  13. Beautiful outfit filled with fun spring colors. I really like the layering here. Fashion is about clothing but style is more than that. Style is attitude mixed with the clothing. :]

  22. Yes you can definitely look good even if you look sick. Super Models need to look good on their clothes despite the oddity of the couture sometimes, and the clothes just looks enchanting as you look beyond.

  41. Yes, I do think fashion is a lot about having the right attitude to wear the clothes. You could dress two person in the same outfit and one would definitely wear it better than the other because he/she would have the right attitude and the other don't.

  59. Ahhh Lili, I think you know all too well what my answer will be :) wear it and own it. A dress is nothing but a piece of stitched fabric without the personality of the wearer giving it life and attitude. And since I've never seen you wear this when you weren't under the weather, I can only judge it based on what I see now. And that's truly lovely so ... :) xoxo

  60. I have been dying with allergies, too. But enough about me! You look beautiful. I can't even notice the puffiness. And yes, I love the quote and it is so true. These colors are perfect together. I have not worn a sweater under a dress before, but I love the attitude here. Lots of feel better hugs.
