Stripes = Love








Top: h.i.p. clothing (old); Boyfriend Crop Jean: 7 for All Mankind (Nordstrom/old); Shoes: Nine West; Necklace: Forever 21; Watch: Michael Kors


It is pretty evident to anyone who has been in my closet that I have a thing for stripes.  When me and my little ladies were school shopping I gravitated towards anything that was striped even for them. I really loved the contrasting colors of this top when I spotted it at Nordstrom Rack last spring.  The slim boyfriend cut crop jeans are by 7 For All Mankind and have made good use of themselves this summer whether it was walking around at the beach or running errands around town.  I literally could wear them everyday!

When I was trying to figure out how to style and accessorize this particular outfit I came to a realization, you can almost never have enough accessories and mine- with the exception of scarves- have become a little on the sparse side.  Of course I say that when the flower statement necklace I threw on last minute still had tags on it. (I don’t even remember when I bought it!!)  In any case, accessorizing is probably the most important part of defining your style and making an outfit you are on the fence about really WORK!! For those of you who asked, the lipgloss I was wearing on my last post as well as this one is called Strawberry Parfait by NYX in their butter gloss.  I literally want one in every color, I got mine at Ulta.

What is your favorite way to accessorize?  Hope you all are enjoying this Indian Summer that has come our way.  I hope it lasts for a bit longer!

Thanks for stopping by!!
