Autumn Stripes

6 Sep

Growing up, I always looked forward to back-to-school shopping at the local mall come Labor Day. Gap was my go-to. I’ll never forget their pastel floral take on Chuck Taylor’s in elementary school and bold plaid button downs in junior high.

While I had the privilege of returning to the classroom the past two years, my run is sadly up. Armed with a salary again though, I may just have to make that nostalgic trip to the mall…since all of the below can be purchased there (from Crew to Nordstrom).

Inspired by a new friend’s stripedshirt online boutique, I’m transitioning two-toned spring basics into a dressier fall look with a mix of crystal cuffs and enamel bangles.

    Great look. Love the mix.
    Today’s striped tee shirt traces it’s roots to the Marseilles sailor shirt- Picasso wore it and Coco Chanel reinterpreted it too!
