Back Around


I bought this tee when we took my uncle and aunt to the outlet in Carlsbad a few weekends ago. While my brother walked away with bags of stuff, this was the only thing I walked away with and I couldn't be happier. This tee is so easy to wear with everything in my closet. I am addicted to Gap t-shirts, especially ones that are on sale! Some of my striped tees need replacing since I've had some for years and they're starting to show signs of wear and tear. Jen made a good point in one of her recent posts that her style has grown more simple as she continues blogging, and I couldn't help but realize the same. I know that with outfits like this one, my style hasn't changed all that much since I've always been and always will be obsessed with stripes. What has changed is that now I choose what I wear because I love it, because it's comfortable, and because it makes me feel good about myself--versus being bogged down with worries of being trendy or making my outfit more interesting. I am a simple gal, and honestly, it's one of the things I like about myself. I think that's why I always come back to this outfit of a striped tee and a solid skirt.

Until next post,
striped tee - gap
skirt - francesca's collections
belt - topshop
moccasins - minnetonka (via nordstrom rack)

  2. I really like your style, especially because it's simple and fun. I love how you combine colors and patterns!

  3. AH! I love hearing the two of you say that. I feel like my blog has made me simplify what I wear- I'm less of a bold pattern mixer than I was! I still will, but resort to measures of simplicity as well. I think I'm more into 'chic' and 'put together' than I was when I started my blog at 17. Growin up!

  4. I saw this outfit and I fell in love. I love that this skirt hits right above the knee so it gives your entire look a more grown up feel. Can I steal it, please?

    I'm so glad we've both completely grown into our own, individual styles over the years. We blog for ourselves, not for others (most of the time). :P After my last final tomorrow I'll be sending you my DD pictures! :) <3 Can't wait!
