My Current Go To Outfit

 

fullsizeoutput_2577Hello readers! Long time, no chat!

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite go-to outfits lately when I have felt like just throwing something together and heading out the door. For me, a simple T-shirt and skirt can be so comfy but also cute when you throw on some accessories like a denim jacket and a hairpiece.

Can I just have a minute to talk about how much I have been LOVING bandanas the last few months? They are seriously so versatile! I love throwing my unruly curly hair into one, or using one to jazz up a handbag. If you are interested, Carly the Prepster did a great video about how to fold scarfs and bandana on her YouTube channel.

My love for the knotted T-shirt has been pretty well documented on this blog, and I love that Madewell is now selling T-shirts that have tails in the front that are meant to be knotted! It creates the perfect fitted look without adding too much bulk. What have been some of your go-to outfits lately?

Landslide

IMG_5094With the days warming up and summer just around the corner, I find myself abandoning my spring florals and frequently opting for my summer staple—stripes! I love the unusual style of this  black and white striped dress. Placing stripes of differing sizes on the top and bottom of the dress creates a nice take on the traditional striped sundress. Since it’s black and white, I find the dress incredibly easy to change up! I’ve styled it a different way each time I’ve worn it—I’ve dressed it up with pearls and flats, I’ve worn it to school with a cardigan and a statement necklace, I’ve paired it with a clutch and heels for a date—there are endless possibilities! I love to add a bit of summer flair to the dress by throwing on my jean jacket. I think the cropped jacket works perfectly with the structured dress and it adds just a hint of menswear to the look. To keep things fun, I added a simple mint bangle and metallic gold flats.
