Simply Striped



Lately I've been drawing inspiration from simple & classic looks like this one...especially as the weather warms up & layers have become a thing of the past.  A breton striped top + chambray skirt is a no-fail combination that's equal parts easy, comfortable & chic.

{You may have noticed some changes to the site - I worked with Danielle from Dandy Designs to declutter & streamline the format to make it more reader-friendly.  All the tabs are now located underneath my header & everything else should be pretty much the same.  Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback about the new look!}




What I'm wearing:
Mossimo top (similar here), Zara skirt (similar here or here), MRKT wedges, c/o Christina M. Boutique necklace (here), Target sunnies, ALDO satchel, Michael Kors watch, Vintage & Monet bracelets, Lips: L'Oreal Target Red

Hmmmm stripe on chambray look...sorry, the image on my phone made it seem like the skirt was very thin stripes. Just realized it was chambray! :-). But a thin stripe skirt would have worked as well :-)

Have a great day!

You cannot go wrong with an outfit such as this, it's a perfectly classic look and all wardrobes should have some Breton stripes I agree! You looked like you just stepped off a yacht - beautiful.
