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?
red mules add a perfect pop of color. and will transition nicely from summer to fall.
this striped top and white chinos is the perfect outfit to wear to book club. tonight, i’m hosting my book club buddies. we’ll discuss Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris. many of you might remember this was the book club selection for may for book club with Style an online book club that features a monthly video interview with the author.
i loved Sold on a Monday so much that i just had to share it with my local book club! i’ll be curious to hear their thoughts tonight as we discuss the book over a glass of wine and a few yummy snacks. can’t wait!
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.
add one or two totes into your handbag collection. totes are perfect to bring along on shopping expeditions as they hold small packages with ease.
happy tuesday, gang! stay cool.
