Pin Spin - Stripes & Florals

Top: Target (exact) | Skirt: Target (exact) | Shoes: U.O. (option) | Necklace: Target (option) (option) | Clutch: Forever 21 (option) (option)

I think it's safe to say I have actually been putting my pins to good use, the fashion ones at least. I REALLY should to get to the ones on my recipe board. Oh well, there is always tomorrow or next month or next year. I am not gonna try and lie to myself. I pin recipes to make myself feel somewhat domesticated. It's the thought that counts, right? Hey, I just might surprise you folks one day and actually post a meal that I pinned, as long as I don't burn it.

Anywho, let's refocus on the pin(s) at hand.

If you have been reading along for very long (since like yesterday), you know that I love me some pattern mixing. I might be borderline addicted. Two patterns that keep reeling me in are stripes and floral. Love them to the moon and back. When I saw the two pins up above, I knew I must get to gettin'. I adore both of these looks and am still on the hunt for the perfect stripe blazer. Know where to find one that is budget friendly? Lemme know.

There ya go, my spin on my pins.

Happy weekend, y'all!

P.S. Can we talk about how every time I smile one eye squints to half the size of the other?

Love this!! I need to do a better job with my outfit pins as well but you knocked this one out of the park!

My eye does that too...even more so if I've had a few glasses of wine. I affectionately call it my 'crunk eye'

Always Maylee said...

Such a cute outfit Shanna! Love the stripes and florals together, so springy! And um, I pin lots of recipes too... and I think I've made a total of 1. And when I smile, one of my eyes squints smaller than the other too! :)

Love that outfit! I actually remember seeing both that top and skirt in target and considered putting them together myself. I ended up buying the blue and white striped top (soo soft, want all the colors!!) and no skirt haha.

Jessica @ City Sequins said...

I LOVE this outfit today!! You are inspiring me to go to Target during my lunch break today hahaha :) Great look...have an awesome weekend girl!!

Helene said...

After seeing this instagram, I've been anxiously awaiting seeing the outfit post! I love it. I saw the skirt at Target and wasn't sure what I thought of the fabric but it definitely wears well :)

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I fear pattern mixing. You did it with panache!

This is the first year in FOREVER that I've actually purchased things that are patterned or striped. I'm branching out, probably from reading your blog!

TheTinyHeart said...

You look SO ready for spring in this adorable outfit! I love the bright colors and of course the pattern mixing. Have a great weekend, Shanna!

The striped sweater is too too cute! And it looks great with the floral skirt! Love it!

Alex[andra] said...

You are so cute! I would never be able to pull that look off.

I love how you took your photos under bridge and on a bridge. :)

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

Maybe that's part of what they call the "stankeye"!

Happy weekend! Love you!

Agnes Mayer said...

I love your outfit. I adore the top and the necklace. I have yet to embrace this whole floral pattern. I love it on you, but i'm not sure about myself.

Cece said...

Stripes and florals? Who'd have thunk it? But I like it. I have one eye that tends to go smaller then the other too! No worries. You still look cute as a button.

Lauren said...

I'm borderline obsessed with this combination as well! I can't get enough!

I have always been nervous to pattern mix! You make it look so easy and beautiful!

Setarra said...

Lol I have a lazy eye smile too. I always angle my head just so when taking pics so my eyes don't look lopsided ;) Loving this pattern combo you put together!

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

SO.GORGEOUS! Love this, it's perfect for spring!!

Rachel said...

I have a similar outfit post going up in a few weeks, so I obviously love the striped top & floral skirt combo!

I'm loving stripes and florals too! Those pins are great! And I have one semi lazy eyelid that closes faster than the other. You can especially see it if you take a picture of me mid-blink...haha.

I love how you mixed patterns! It looks fabulous!

My eyes do that same thing. Photographers are always asking me to open my eyes, and I'm like, I AM! They get really small, but one basically closes. Its frustrating :).

Niki Caron said...

I am IN LOVE with this outfit, Shanna! This is my absolute favorite yet! Plus, these were my wedding colors so I love it even more than normal!

Marina Gooding said...

I have this sweater, skirt, and link necklace and would of never thought to put it together! Thanks Chica :)

I seriously want to go shopping in your closet. :) You always look so cute!

Tessa said...

Aaaah! I have the exact same problem with my eyes! One of the reasons I hate smiling in pictures. Though, just in general, my eyes are both super squinty in pictures.
Also, of course, I love this combination. I always loved pattern mixing, but my sister has never been a big fan of my "not matching," so I don't do it as often. But I am totally going to do this once the weather warms up enough.

Love the stripes and florals combo and the colors are so springy :D

I love how bright this outfit is! Pink and navy can sometimes look too preppy, but this is perfect!

Sherry said...

That outfit is fantastic! I love, love, love it! I just bought a cardigan that is the same pattern as your skirt at Target. They really came out with a fun line of clothes this spring. I was crushing on everything!

Jessica said...

I gotta say I am totally in love with this outfit. I actually want to go to Target to buy the whole outfit. It's really cute. And it's so perfect for spring. Super cute! :)
