The perfectly striped blouse, a classic pair of black denim jeans, and some dainty gold rings. That's a recipe for an outfit I can get on board with. As I've gotten older, I've realized I'd rather embrace my style than try to fit in with the latest trends. Every once in a while I'll break out of the box and try something that's totally not me, but in the end I always go back to what I love the most! This outfit embodies that statement from top to bottom, but with a little added interest!
Let's first discuss this blouse from StyleWe. I instantly knew it was a winner based on the stripes! Vertical stripes are very flattering on anyone, and you can't go wrong with a classic black and white stripe. Everyone should own at least one striped top – it's a closet staple. What makes this blouse unique is the adorable little sunbathers scattered about it and the festive fringe tassels! I like to tuck in the front, and let the back flow for a tapered effect.
Black denim. If you don't have it, you need it. I almost exclusively wear it in the winter and fall. If you've ever shopped for denim online, you know how challenging it is to find the perfect fit without physically trying anything on! Well, I've got a solution to that! Let me introduce you to Fitcode. This Seattle-based brand showcases endless pairs of designer jeans, and with one simple 5-step quiz, help you narrow down the choices to pairs that work with your body. It's like having a personal denim stylist with me, helping to select jeans that match my personal style.
After I took the quiz, I had this pair of JAG Jeans selected in minutes. The best part? They arrived super fast and fit perfectly. JAG is another awesome Seattle-based brand with an amazing selection of denim! I love the total blackout effect the Sheridan Skinny has. The denim is so soft and moves with my body instead of against it. Admit it, you've worn a pair of jeans that was totally uncomfortable before because they were cool. With these, I don't have to compromise comfort and a great fit for style! What's even better is that JAG is currently running their Memorial Day Sale—40–60% off select styles—until Monday!
Accessories are a girl's best friend. I love shoes, bags and jewelry more than anything. It's the little details that really round out an outfit and make it feel complete. This outfit is mostly monochromatic, so I had to pull out this beautiful cobalt blue bag by Rebecca Minkoff. I'm also wearing my signature neon pink color, Pool Party on my nails. The color is so bright the camera doesn't even do it justice!
Rings are an accessory I wear every single day. In fact, a few of them are the most sentimental things I own. I have one from my mom, one from my grandma, and I'd feel lost without them. Nowadays gold feels like a much more vintage metal, but it's always been my go-to. I'm constantly on the lookout for new pieces to add to my collection, but they have to be wearable and last a long time.
Fresh Tangerine is Seattle-based brand that I absolutely adore, and not just because of their name! They're known for carefully crafted jewelry that is delicate, easy to wear and approachable. We're on the same page, believing that jewelry is personal and should be a lasting investment that is accessible to everyone! The pieces they create are so stinkin' cute! No seriously, go look at their selection. I've got a few stackable gold rings and couldn't help but pick out this little ampersand. As a designer who has been obsessed with typography all her life, the choice was a no brainer.
Thanks so much to the amazing brands that made this outfit possible! Each piece is a treasured item that is going to be joining me on countless adventures and live in my fashion arsenal for years to come.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing three-day weekend! New adventures await!
