I’m definitely a fan of stripes… and blue… and white. So obviously when I saw this striped top I just had to get it. I love that the stripes kind of look like ropes, which gives it a nautical feel without being too obvious. It’s going to be perfect to throw on and go grab a drink with a friend this summer!
As I talked about here and here, I live on a lake and so my style in the summer is definitely influenced by being on the water. It doesn’t mean I have to wear blue all the time (even though I do) nor does it mean I’m always wearing a bathing suit (I actually don’t all that often). For me, it just means I like to be comfortable and in pieces I can easily take from day to night. That’s why I love dresses so much!
This striped top has a shell type fit to it, which is perfect because I can eat all the chicken wings I want and no one will ever see my food baby. Living close to the birth place of the chicken wing can get dangerous… My favorite thing about this top, though, is the back. I mean those buttons!! <3 I always love finding tops and dresses with little details that make the piece extra special. Even though I styled this striped top with white denim and wedges, I think it would look super cute with shorts and Jack Rogers, too. I’ll have to give that a try and let you know how it goes 😉
One last thing, did you guys catch my Mother’s Day gift guide yesterday? I categorized it into three separates ‘moms’ – the baker, the fashionista and the homebody. Odds are you can’t get much shipped to you before then, but most of the pieces are from stores in your local mall! Make sure to spoil your mom this Sunday and show her how much she means to you!
