it’s time to keep our summer style strong with a striped top and white chinos. add a pair of red mules, and we have a simple yet snazzy outfit. and isn’t that what we want when those outside temps heat up?

today’s ootd starts with a red and white stripe top last seen here with a matching skirt. one aspect i love about purchasing separates is the ability to mix and match each item with other wardrobe staples. notice the contrasting trim around the sleeves. this is a design detail that sets this shirt apart. as well as how the pocket lines up perfectly with the stripes.

white chinos from Talbots have been on repeat all summer long as they are lightweight and easily replace white denim on those hot summer days august loves to dish up. the chinos have been paired with a Lacoste tee, graphic tee and gingham blazer, and a kimono. how’s that for versatility?

many times i’ll throw a cardigan around my shoulders for a little old school charm. plus, if it gets too chilly inside an office building or retail store i have an extra layer readily available. it’s the perfect addition to a striped top and white chinos.

    Love this segment of your blog. Have you considered giving yourself a break on Sundays by doing the flashbacks altogether on a Sunday and calling it “What I wore this week”? It would give you something to post on a Sunday without having to do a separate segment, hence a break for you and your photographer. Just something to think about. You work so hard. Many thanks for all your efforts.

    Beth, I carry a cardigan with me most of the time. Restaurants are so chilly. It’s hard to enjoy your meal when your chilled. By the way I love your outfit. Love stripes!!

    Cute Bulldog red outfit! I see those Georgia decals on the doors behind you. Just deepen that red a bit and you’d have the perfect South Carolina Gamecock outfit. 🙂 Glad you’re back.

    I love the mules! I have several red shoes, but those are great. I’m tempted… I wear similar things through summer–and yes, almost always drape a sweater on my shoulders for inside cold. It looks nice, too, though. You look great here, and the videos help to see the outfit in motion. Nice job!
