Crimson and Clover

Sweater- H&M
Top- Forever 21
Shorts- Old Navy
Shoes- Target
Watch- Fossil

     Doesn't everything about this outfit scream Joan Jett? I swear I couldn't get this song out of my head all weekend. It might have the crimson stripes or the clover like flowers on my blouse, but I don't want to be captain obvious here. All I know is that when I saw these little shooties on sale at Target last week I squealed with delight. Only $9 and I got a cool pair of heels! And I know they are comfortable because I have see them on bloggers feet everywhere! I knew I wanted to pair something with this sweater for the pattern mixing Everybody, Everywear challenge because what looks better then stripes mixed with just about anything? Sheesh, I even have a whole Pintrest board dedicated to all things striped! And don't even get me started on elbow pads. Swoon! I didnt even need a red and white sweater but when I saw the camel colored leather pads, I was sold. 100 degree weather didnt even stop me!
