Nine & Co. beanie, vintage Escada blouse (nice alternative), H&M cardigan, Jordan jeans c/o Motel, and De Blossom Collection pumps (similar)

It's probably not surprising, but there's no shortage of printed jeans in my wardrobe. In fact, a recent look inside my closet revealed floral, leopard, polka dot, and snake print versions. But one thing was missing - a pair of body-hugging striped jeans. So when I got my hands on this bold pair by favorite UK brand Motel, I knew I'd enjoy styling them in myriad ways. My first inclination was to wear them with a simple chambray top and red open-toe heels, but the 40mph winds and colder temperatures prevented that from happening (hence the beanie and braid). My favorite pajama-esque blouse and oversized sweater seemed more practical. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise after all; it's much more challenging and fun to wear mixed prints every now and then.
