Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday. Can we even believe that it’s literally JULY this week? Where did June go? Who knows, but I am loving the sunny, warm weather we have been having as it enables me to wear all my fun Summer gear.
Simple stripes are the epitome of Summer to me. There is something so vacay and warm temp ready about them! I love incorporating them in my wardrobe, so when I found this super cute little romper from Line & Dot I couldn’t resist. It’s a bit preppy for me with the collared neck, but the shortness makes it even out (keepin it Caro sassy!) To give it some life, I added a woven belt from J.Crew (old, super cheap similar option here). I know you all know, but to me no outfit is complete without a belt! It just gives your look a more finished feel.
I thought these yellow heels from Steve Madden were the perfect way to top off this look. I think blue + yellow is such a fun combo for Summer. Plus it also pairs perfectly with brown tones, like the soft brown of this Gucci bag. This bag is so one of my all time fave purchases. Not because it’s anything over the top special, but more that it’s so usable It’s the perfect size for day to night and the long crossbody strap is super comfy (you know how some straps are all stiff or heavy??? This one is not).
I added my Michele watch and this neutral Valentino bracelet for fun. I am kind of over arm stacking, but I do think it’s fun to kick up a daytime look with some wrist love. For sunnies I went standard with my blue mirrored lens Illesteva’s.
I am all about stripes for these warm temps! The best part about this trend is that you can take it on to your liking. You can go huge by wearing a striped maxi or jumpsuit or keep it more simple with a striped off the shoulder top or a fun striped espadrille. Sidenote: when doing horizontal stripes, just remember to stick to thinner ones as it’s more flattering!
So here’s to stripes, the all time Summer trend that always seems to stick around. These are some more pieces I currently have my eye on:
I am off to lunch today with two of my favorite friends on the planet so I am smiling big this morning! Is there anything better than a little girl time? I can answer that for you, no!! Hope you guys all have a fab week!
