Blue and white stripes seem to be everywhere right now. Tops, skirts, dresses, it’s the print of the moment and I’m totally okay with that. I love this top because of the puffy sleeves and the bow detail in the front. So clean and simple, yet not boring. I know what you’re thinking, she’s wearing those Levi’s AGAIN. I’m sorry but when you find a great pair of denim you love, you live in them! These exact ones are currently on sale and I couldn’t recommend them more. I love the wash, the amount of distress and that they are high waisted, perfect for petite girls. 

So full disclosure, these shoes aren’t made for walking. I’m obsessed with them, I mean they look amazing but they are the shoes I will wear when I don’t have to walk far. Like from the car to the restaurant and then sit in them and look pretty lol! I paired them with this outfit to take it up a notch and add a little sass, to a more classic style.

There are a few classic pieces I think that  every woman needs in her wardrobe.  When it comes to handbags I really try and have a mix of classic bags and trendy bags. A classic bag can be your partner for life, so investing in one you love is key. This tote from Banana Republic is my current go-to, everyday work bag. It’s neutral so it goes with everything, it fits all my junk (including my laptop) AND the major bonus is it has a built in charger! I don’t know about you guys but since I’m on my phone all. the. time. I’m constantly either running out of battery and nine times out of ten I forget my portable charger or my portable charger isn’t charged. The struggle. This way I don’t have to worry about it! This tote is made from a high quality leather, super soft and sophisticated. This is the bag that you’ll never get tired of the one you’ll have forever.

I tend to dress more casually during the summer. Denim shorts or casual dresses just end up being the easy thing to throw on when the temps heat up. I love that these embellished Banana Republic shorts are comfortable but give a more sophisticated look to a summer outfit. I kept with that vibe by adding this neckerchief and of course this tote

I hope you guys enjoyed the weekend and are ready to have a productive week!
