Casual Weekend Stripes

The thing about my style over the years has become rather casual. Maybe it's my go with the flow attitude. Maybe it's just the LA vibes. But it comes down to knowing what I feel best in and repeating that formula over and over. So you can say I've grown my collection of stripe tops and jeans this summer. While it might seem redundant to keep buying stripes, I know that those are the pieces that will get worn. It's about finding different variations that keep it interesting, even if you're actually just wearing a stripe top+jeans+espadrilles practically everyday. Needless to say, the second I saw this stripe cold-shoulder number from Tobi, it was a must! It made for the perfect top to throw on right because of course my other half gave me a time limit to get ready this weekend. So maybe that's really why I have an outfit formula...jk!

Do you have an outfit formula that you constantly go back to?

How To Wear Statement Ruffles

I'm not one to shy away from stripes. And when I find a "new" version I'm right there to give it a test. So with the whole ruffle trend taking storm, I couldn't resist this top with stripes and the dramatic ruffles. There's no question the ruffles are meant to standout, which gives it some playfulness. The key is balance that out. Naturally, I gravitated to all my basics. Simple jeans and accessories downplay all the fun from the top, making it just right. This honestly would be a fancy outfit for my office, but for some of you this might work for your casual Friday or weekend brunch. Either way, statement ruffles add so much to a look and can work for an office or weekend.

Thanks so much to everyone who linked up with us! We're so excited to have the linkup back! Our picks this week are Karen from Lady in Violet and Lydia from Chic on the Cheap! We're loving their chic white!

Not So Simple Black Top

Half the time, there's a good chance you can find me in neutrals and a t-shirt. Lucky for me, my office is casual, so my work to weekend pieces do not very much. I wouldn't be surprised if people think I wear the same thing just in different variations-tee and jeans. But in my defense I've become quite the expert at finding t-shirts with fun details. This black tee is just the latest and I preferred it worn backwards.  And if you saw my last Instagram post, you know I've been t-shirt shopping. Here are a few more I've bought:
