It's almost Valentine's and if you're picking out your outfit, I'd like to challenge you to step outside the red/pink box and try something different. As you know I love me some pink & red but this Valentine's I wanted to mix it up a bit.
Enter the Bumble Bee with it's black and yellow stripes!
The inspiration for this look actually came from a simple pair of Bumble Bee earrings I got at Target years ago. From there I played off the Bee's striped pattern, wearing a yellow & white striped vintage skirt with yellow t-strap heels. I wanted to do a bit of pattern mixing so I added my off the shoulder polkadot top & vintage contrasting polkadot belt from Mom. Heart sunnies as my Bee eyes, a vintage beaded purse and pearl flower ring tied the look together.
It was pouring freezing-rain yesterday in NYC, so I made the best of the situation and shot this look inside my apartment instead of venturing outside. I was a little bummed about not being able to go out but the upside is being able to showcase my DIY Chinoiserie wall.
I hope you enjoy this fun look and mix up your colors and prints this Valentine's!
Bumble Bee needs her flowers, even indoors in the Winter! 🐝🌸💐
