Oh, this Club Monaco striped top. If my summer wardrobe were to have an MVP, I think this sale rack find from Boston would have to be it. I've already worn it tucked into a ladylike midi skirt, with white eyelet and black accessories, with black skinny jeans...it's the quintessential, no-brainer, throw-on-and-go summer top, especially when paired with khaki shorts and espadrille sandals. Perfect for a weekend of Jazz Fest concert-going, evening strolling, and solstice adventuring.
Of course, the devil's in the details when it comes to keeping a basic outfit from feeling boring. I like the small pops of colour courtesy of the coral lip gloss, orange wristlet, and bright pedi, as well as the baby blue/cobalt mani and purple lashes. Shades and a statement necklace help too, and I like this half side-braid so much I'm itching to re-create it soon.
Another busy week is upon us, but somehow with the extended daylight hours, it doesn't feel so bad. Happy Monday, everyone!
