Go Bold with Stripes

Bold Striped Top OOTD

I like to wear a lot of different prints but stripes are definitely my number one. I love how they are simple and classic but can easily be bold and fresh depending on the size and what I pair them with. I usually go for a breton stripe but every now and then I mix it up, like with these two tops. I’ve been craving lots of stripes lately and these two black and white striped tops caught my eye. I love the fun details like gingham sleeves and a peplum but my favorite part is how easy each striped top is to wear.

Summer Basics Refresh

Summer Basics Refresh Shein Wishlist copy

I have to admit, I love clothes. My closet and dresser are full but every now and then (usually as the seasons change) I start to feel like I have nothing to wear. It’s amazing how just a few new pieces can liven up my wardrobe and make me excited to wear my clothes again. Sometimes I feel like adding some bright colors or a variety of different pieces but lately I’ve been all about cozy basics. I’ve been loving black and white, bold stripes, and classic pieces with interesting details. Since I’ve been drawn to trendier pieces that I might not wear forever, I don’t want to spend too much money on them. Luckily, I’ve found quite a few trendy, updated basics at SheIn, which fits my budget perfectly and allows me to pick up more than a handful of new items for my summer basics refresh.

Going Tropical / Palm Print Wrap Skirt

OOTD Palm Print SkirtI love fun prints, especially brighter-colored prints for summer. I really like the way prints can take a simple piece and make it much more interesting and dynamic. This palm print wrap skirt is the perfect example. A wrap skirt is a classic, timeless shape but the midi length and palm frond print makes this one perfect for strolling around on summer evenings. I love the longer length and the print is so fun- it makes me wish I was on an island somewhere, walking along the beach!

Pattern Play / Striped Blazer and Printed Dress

Pattern Play- Striped SheIn Blazer and Printed HM Dress with RuffleWhen it comes to fashion, there are definitely certain colors that I gravitate to over and over again (black and pink immediately come to mind). One color I typically hate wearing though is navy. It’s just so boring and plain and I hate how it feels like it’s draining my energy throughout the day. Surprisingly, I was instantly drawn to this dress on the rack. I think it’s the print- it breaks up the dark color and adds a little interest to the dress. When I received this navy and white striped blazer, I had to pair it with this printed dress. I love the pattern play and the stripes and print add enough interest to make even the dullest color fun to wear.

Off The Shoulder Blues

Blue Floral Off the Shoulder TopShoulder details are so big right now. Everywhere I look, there is an off the shoulder dress or a top with cutout shoulders. Everything looks so cute but since the pieces are pretty trendy, it can be hard for me to spend a lot on them. Who knows if I’ll even like that off the shoulder dress in a few months? I love inexpensive fashion companies for this very reason. It’s easy to test out a trend to see how much I’ll wear it before really investing in it. I recently picked out an inexpensive off the shoulder top and cold shoulder dress to test the waters of the shoulder details trend.

Light Spring Layers / Nashville in Spring

Nashville Spring Fashion OOTD Striped Sweater, Skinny Jeans, and Ballet FlatsI definitely experienced a range of weather when I visited Stacie in Nashville a couple of weeks ago. There were a couple of what I would consider normal spring days, a couple of really warm (90 degrees or so) days and then a big storm rolled in and we were back to our winter coats. When the weather is really finicky like that I like to rely on light spring layers. We did a lot of exploring while I was there and it was easy to throw on a few layers in the morning and remove them if the day warmed up. One of my favorite things we did was visit Nashville’s Bicentennial Mall, where we ran into all of these pretty trees!
