It’s funny how there are certain articles of clothing we are drawn to over and over again. For me, it’s always a good tunic top. I think it stems from growing up, when I was super tall but living in a world of low-rise jeans- it was impossible to find a top that was long enough. Now I love them to be as long as possible and frequently wear mini dresses as tops (mostly because, again- really tall). This gray draped tunic is perfect. It has plenty of length and it also happens to be super comfortable and versatile.
I definitely go through phases with trends. Some days, I want to try everything and other days I want to stick to simple basics. Oftentimes (like what’s been happening lately), I will find one trend that I like and buy several different pieces to wear because I like it so much. Lately I’ve been into lace up details and cutouts. This lace up dress started it all. I’ve been wanting a short dress with sleeves and I loved the lace up neckline on this so much that I’ve been buying “all the lace up things” ever since.
I love easy outfits that I can just throw on while still looking put together. For that reason, I wear a lot of neutrals that can be mixed and matched. It’s so much easier to get dressed in the morning if all you have to do is grab a top and a bottom without worrying about colors matching. Still, I like to add a little fun and interest to my outfits so I rely on little details to elevate otherwise simple basics. This layered look top is perfect for me. The white and gray colors fit my color scheme but it looks like I’ve taken the time to layer a couple of different tops when really I’ve just thrown on a light sweater and left the house.
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.
I 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!
When 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.
