It's no secret that I'm a major stripe enthusiast, so it comes as no huge surprise that I was super excited to see the pattern stand front and center in August's "The Look" section. While I have nothing against Breton stripe tees and brown leather bags, in advance of the imminent cold weather, I decided to put my own spin on the tried and true pairing. This black dress and matching crossbody (both from Target!) can be easily ushered into the winter months. A fun leopard jacket, floppy felt hat, and chunky statement necklace helped transform the outfit into a full-fledged bohemian ensemble. I must admit, I was into it!
