Stripes

I’m a sucker for stripes lately so when I saw this linen stripe tee with the flattering v-neck and button sleeve detail, I was smitten. It’s such a nice little transition piece for this in-between season.

The background is off-white and the stripes are black, so I paired this top with black jeans to go out to breakfast with friends last week, and I kept it simple with black flats.

I get a lot of questions about accessories. This Luna pendant is a nice piece to wear with a casual v-neck top because it’s visible without being overwhelming. Sometimes a bigger necklace looks fussy, but if it’s too delicate, it can look young. I also wore a stack of Alex and Ani bangles.

These black jeans came from Trunk Club last winter. I like how they look on, but they slide down and I’m always hitching them up, which is annoying. I’m on the look-out for a new pair, but I don’t want to pay full price so I’m waiting.

I like this length with ballet flats, but they can be a little long for pairing with ankle boots. (The inseam is 29″.) Black jeans don’t always look right cuffed, so again, I’m looking for a replacement, but I keep wearing these in the meantime.

I picked up these Tory Burch flats for 40% off during the Anniversary Sale, and they’re actually on sale right now for 33% off but most sizes are gone. I like gold medallion and the pebbled leather, but they’re not as comfortable as my Minnie travel flats. I decided to keep them, though, because I got a good price on them and I don’t need to wear them for too many hours at a time.

I carried a black shoulder bag from last winter that coordinates nicely with my shoes. I like the combination of the black leather and gold hardware.

This is a simple outfit, but then again, I’m a simple girl! LOL! I could have jazzed it up with leopard flats or a more trendy loafer, but overall, I was comfortable and felt cute and put together for what turned out to be a long day. I wore this outfit out to breakfast with friends in the morning, then working from home the rest of the day, and that evening to host a meeting at my house.

The best part is, it looked just as good at the end of the day as it did at the beginning. This top wore well and didn’t get wrinkled, which isn’t always the case with linen, and while the jeans do slide down, they don’t bag out throughout the day, so at least there’s that.
