I used to avoid striped sweaters like the plague. They remind me of old school fashions, but not the stylish retro ones. When I laid eyes on this beaut, however, the first thing that came to mind was bubble gum! This is not your average pink striped sweater! Just like the sugary candy, there is something so sweet and happy about it.
Crafted out of a fine knit nylon blend, this pretty little thing can go casual or dressy thanks to its decorative sheen. We had tickets to an afternoon concert in Berkeley, so I went the casual route and paired this pink striped sweater with distressed denim. Who would have thought that intentional tears in your jeans would be considered a fashion statement?! Aside from being very stylish, swapping out regular denim for distressed denim is one of the easiest ways to add flair to your ensemble. Anyway, although flats would have been totally appropriate, skinny jeans on a curvy five foot frame are not very forgiving. I gave myself a boost with platform clogs and accessorized with blue flash lens sunglasses and a wad of bubble gum!
About the platform clogs…I have had many people ask me if I can actually walk in these shoes. The answer is YES. In fact, I routinely walk the streets of San Francisco in these kicks, but suggest a practice spin before tackling the hills. Although five inches high, the platform construction provides support along the entire length of your foot – alleviating soreness in the balls of your feet (hallelluyah). Aside from the comfort level, they are only $35 at Forever 21 and also available in black suede. Keep calm and clog on!
