Victoria’s Secret Stripe Tee (bought this one with it for the 2/$40 deal!) / Target White Vest (old, similar here) / American Eagle Black Shorts (on sale, also loving this leather pair) / Steve Madden Quilted Sneakers / Vintage Black Sunnies (similar here for less than $10)
I have always had a soft spot for a black and white combo, and stripes embody that simple perfection seamlessly (literally). The vest over top adds a contrast and put-together feel to an other wise simple, monochromatic look which explains why I wear it and other vests so often with more comfortable looks. I should also mention that when I first found this top, I instantly feel in love. The oversized fit was exactly what I had been looking for because it creates more of that Boy-Meets-Girl feeling that I’ve been drawn to lately. I just love a classic black and white look and I can’t wait to wear this one and versions of it throughout Fall.



Just recently (as in around a couple hours ago!) I received word that my mother, sister, and I were going to be taking a girls weekend trip! You couldn’t even imagine how happy I was to know I’d be getting out of this swirling bi-polar vortex! One of first thoughts I had being a fashion blogger was that I needed to get my wardrobe in check, especially for the flight out which always seems to be the hardest look for me to master (I usually wake up late and roll out of bed in whatever I’m wearing, don’t shake your head at me I assume you’ve tried it too!). But this time I’ve promised myself it will be different as I think I may have the look down to a science: LAYERS! The more, the better. As you’ll see above, I found many looks with just that concept in mind; the layers usually consist of a scarf, some kind of cardigan, a jacket, comfortable shoes (I don’t think I could run around the airport in heels knowing how I have a habit of being late!), and small, simple accessories to bring the whole look together. Sounds do-able, right?
