Stripes Are Always Right





I’m sure you’ve heard the old ‘adage’ that “every girl’s closet needs some stripes” or “you can never go wrong with stripes”.  Well, it’s true.  A striped shirt (especially navy against white) is a versatile wardrobe MVP.  You can dress it with a floral skirt, pair it down with denim, or mix ‘n match with a trench coat or blazer.  As summer slowly winds down, I’ve been wearing my striped shirts as a layering piece.  This outfit would also look great with a long trench vest –> for example, see what I’m currently coveting right now over to the right!

Long Vest



Good morning!  Hope you had a great weekend.  I spent Saturday celebrating my good childhood friend’s upcoming wedding at her bridal shower/bachelorette party.  It was a day full of fun (can’t believe I went indoor skydiving!), laughs, and good food.  Friendship is so important to me and I feel lucky to have amazing girlfriends.

I’ve been trying to find creative ways to dress for work and found this white vest on sale at Saks.  It’s the perfect top-over to a blouse and a pair of slacks without the formality of a blazer.  Here, I’m wearing it with some distressed denim for a weekend look.  Such a great addition to the closet.  Have a great start to your week!
