I’ve spoken so much about the stripe trend lately one might think I have slowly gotten to the point where I and stripes are dunzo, but sorry to disappoint you: not. gonna. happen. EVER! However, I do like to update them with a touch of Spring now that we’re almost half through the month of March: in this case it’s in the form of blue and yellow accessories. What do you think of my colorful stripey budget look?

Back in November last year Selena Gomez donned a very sexy yet elegant look that I totally fell in love with. The young actress wore a black cut-out satin dress with a deep plunging neckline by Cushnie et Ochs and completed her outfit with plum lips, wavy hair and black pointy suede pumps. I took my chance at recreating Selena’s vampy look on a budget-friendly, what do you think? Did I succeed?

So I am usually neither a big fan of chunky military boots nor am I a white shoes person, but the moment I spotted these all white Doc Martens on Solestruck’s Instagram I was OBSESSED! I instantly pictured an outfit with them in my head and had to share it with you. I really can’t get enough of black and white lately, can you? And what do you think of the look or the monochrome standout boots? Yay or nay?

The monochrome x graphic print trend first started in 2013 and in 2014 still shows no sign of slowing down. Stripes, squares and polka dots! Graphic prints make the right statement for spring, and we say the bolder, the better. For the strongest impact opt for a monochrome color palette such as black and white. To get you inspired, here’s a look we’ve created using one of 2014′s key trends:
