J. Crew made up a holiday and it might just be my favorite day yet! National Stripes Day is today so break out all your favorites, use #nationalstripesday and celebrate! I paired my top with classic denim and because it was a rainy day, added my favorite boots. My bag is Gigi New York and comes in three colors. I love how versatile it is and this weekend receive free personalization and free shipping on their site!

Sail to Sable Shift

similar} / Clutch: Custom {similar} / Flats: Chanel {similar} / Bangles: Bourbon & Boweties

By now you’ve probably figured out I’m a sucker for Navy & White, but add a stripe and it’s game over. Before I even tried this dress on, I knew it needed to be in my closet ASAP and after a quick fitting room sesh, my thoughts were confirmed! I just love this shift from Sail to Sable and {all stripes and colors aside} it fits great! It’s sporty but feminine look gives me so many reasons to pull it out of my  closet {it’s literally Ready to Wear!} I paired it with classic flats, some coordinating bangles and a neutral clutch to real make the dress stand on it’s own.

Spring Sun Hats

We’re all counting down the days ’till we take our Spring Break trip, right?! {I have 3 weeks left!} So start packing, because theres only 10 days till Spring officially hits! These amazing linen Beach Pants can be worn with sandals, literally, to the beach, or with wedges for a day around town. A sun hat is always a good idea and this Panama Hat {similar} was picked up at a local art fair in Seattle and handmade in Panama. If you’re not in the city you can visit their website {here} to order online, but I’ve also linked similar styles below.

The Striped Sweater

ChicWish / Denim: AG Jeans / Watch: MICHELE {face,  band} / Flats: Chanel {similar} / iPhone Case: Lilly Pulitzer / Key Fob: Louis Vuitton {same style}

I am obsessed with this stripe sweater from ChicWish and it’s 15% off right now. You all know I’m a sucker for anything navy and white and when I saw this top online I knew it immediately had a home in my closet. It’s not too thick and has 3/4 sleeves which make it perfect for warmer Fall days and cooler nights. I also love how it has a bit of that preppy old school football feel and I’ll defiantly be wearing it on game days! I can’t rave about these jeans enough either – seriously, check out AG Jeans’ Absolute Legging. They are the softest things I’ve ever worn and don’t at all feel like a legging {more like an ├╝ber soft and stretchy pair of jeans} I have been living in them lately!

Fall Stripes

similar} / Bottoms: Lilly Pulitzer {similar} / Glasses: Oliver Peoples / Watch: MICHELE {faceband} / Necklace: Target {similar} / Boots: Tory Burch

I love stripes and they’re not just a summer staple. Even though it’s fall you can still incorporate them into your wardrobe and I’m sharing a few tips that’ll help you! Look for darker and heathered stripe combos along with warmer textiles. Merino Wool is perfect for the colder months and you can never go wrong with cashmere. Although these will be a bit more expensive and dry clean only, they’re totally worth it giving you seasons and seasons of wear. You can never go wrong with a navy and white stripe, but don’t be afraid to try tops with unique color combinations too. Blue & orange, green & black, navy & black, red & green, these are all great color combos that’ll take you from fall to winter and stay in style for a while!

Clutches & Curves

similar} / Denim: Madewell / Belt: J. Crew / Watch: MICHELE / Clutch: Custom {similar}/ Heels: Steve Madden

If there’s one thing you need to purchase when building a base wardrobe, it should be a pair of high rise denim. I’ve always worn my bottoms just above my hip but fell in love with Madewell’s High Riser denim and haven’t looked back. They show off my curves in the best way and fit me perfectly {I literally wore them out of the store!} and if you’ve seen Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants you know what feeling I’m talking about. I styled them here with a basic untucked white tee {you can’t even tell they’re high risers!} but wanted to really show off their perfection for our last dinner in Italy. I tucked in a swing sweater from J. Crew {mine is past season} added a belt and made sure to elongate my legs even more by wearing heels. I’m 5’2″ and these jeans make me feel and look like I have legs for days! 

My clutch is real Ostrich skin and was custom made from a leather shop in Florence. It is my favorite souvenir from the trip {besides the wine of course!} and I’ve linked similar styles below {both real and embossed} along with other swing sweaters too.

Throwback Thursday

It’s throwback thursday and I HAD to bring out these shorts again! I’m pretty much in love with the Tusk In sun print from Lilly and when they relaunched it on the Callahan short I was done. I love print on print looks and repeated the Hollin sweater to pair with my shorts. I linked my favorite print and solid Callahans below along with my sweater {which comes in bay blue & navy}

The Marlowe Boatneck Dress from Lilly Pulitzer is amazing! It’s 100% cotton, super soft and also comes in two prints {Red Right Return and Toucan Play} I went with this classic navy and white stripe for the summer months and to transition into fall with cute boots! Since we’re visiting D.C this month, I’m all about the preppy look. Pearls are the perfect accessory {from earrings to bangles} and a feminine nude pump makes this the perfect outfit for my Birthday night out!
