May 7, More Stripes

I’m back again today with even more blue and white stripes. I can’t seem to get enough of them lately. At least today they are vertical instead of horizontal!

This very lightweight cotton blouse is perfect for the gorgeous warm weather we are having. I love the different color and size of the stripes, as well as the cute flutter sleeve. At first I paired it with my faded blue jeans and Birkenstocks (and truthfully, I think this looks fine), but then I decided it might be better with white jeans to provide a little contrast to the blue. As usual, I have done the half tuck to define my waist and then to finish off the outfit I am wearing my cute slip on trendy Hermes knock off sandals.

May 6, Blue and White Stripes

Yesterday it was black and white stripes, today I’m going for blue and white. If you haven’t noticed, I am big fan of stripes!

I’m teaching 3rd grade today, so I want to be casual and comfy, and since it’s chilly in the morning, I need to start the day with a jacket, that I can remove later as it gets warmer. The plain white tank under the jacket on the left doesn’t add any interest to the outfit, so I switched it up for this blue and white one . I then rolled the hems of my jeans to show off a little ankle and make them look a little more current. I swapped out my bulky tennis shoes for my Superga’s to complete the look. As for the jacket, I rolled the sleeves and cinched the waist. This makes the jacket a little more flattering and more styled looking.

I know I promised links today, but I’m running late and don’t have time to include them. Sorry! I can tell you the blue and white shirt is Banana Republic (old), jacket is from Ross , Jeans are Rich and Skinny and shoes are Superega. Gotta run, have a great day.

May 5, Black and White Stripes

We are headed to a brunch today to celebrate the end of the year for my son, who is graduating high school. Woot hoot! I’ve chosen a cute black and white striped dress. Alone, it’s a little plain- so I added this cute statement necklace from Stella and Dot (old) and a black blazer with the sleeves pushed up. Peep toe shoes complete the look.

Sorry I didn’t get to post yesterday! I was still in Vegas at the National Charity League conference and didn’t have time for photos. I got home late last night and will be back to my regular posting this week with links and better write ups! Enjoy your Sunday.

May 2, Rose Gold

I mentioned the other day how Rose Gold is one of the trending colors this season. Today I’m wearing a rose gold t shirt paired with a sandstone faux suede jacket.

In the before photo I paired this t shirt with blue jeans and Birkenstocks. But there just isn’t anything interesting or unique about this look. So, to change it up, I swapped out the blue jeans for off white jeans- and added this incredibly soft draped front faux suede jacket. The jacket adds some style and also keeps me warm! The open toed shoes complete the look and tie in the color of the jacket.

May 1, Another Airplane Outfit

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m off on another trip today, this time I’m heading to Vegas for the National Charity League national conference. For my plane journey, I’m wearing black jeans (as I did on my last trip), but this time I am pairing them with a cute v neck grey t shirt and my denim jacket. In the before photo I am wearing black joggers and a dark denim jacket. As much as I love those joggers- I will wear black jeans instead, since I want to pack light and can wear the jeans multiple times. I also plan on wearing the denim jacket a couple of times, and  I like the faded denim better than the dark wash. Rolling the sleeve of the denim jacket gives the outfit a casual vibe. 

The grey shirt with the deeper v neck is more flattering than the white one on the left where the neckline is too high. 

I’m also wearing slip on loafers- easy for going through security! Lastly, I will most definitely add a scarf- see photo below. The last trip I went on, I used my scarf almost every single day. It was so much colder than I thought it would be. Hopefully Vegas will be a bit warmer, but it’s always a good idea to keep a scarf in your bag for over air conditioned restaurants or hotel conference rooms!  This faux Burberry scarf is a great piece! It looks classy and can be draped over my shoulders as a shawl, or wrapped around my neck as seen here- or if I’m really desperate, can be a swim suit coverup!
