style for the everyday babe

Warm Weather Stripes

Can we just take a moment to talk about how fucking cold it’s been this week? Explain this situation to me- I don’t get it. I mean, yeah ok, I live in Texas so the weather never makes any sense. Still.

 Come save us, Bill Nye!

So I shot this BEFORE we had this weird ass cold front and it was the perfect outfit for a lovely spring day in Dallas. It wasn’t even what I wore that day, but when I got to Strut and saw this top I knew I needed to change. 

I don’t know about you, but I can never get enough basics. I’d be better off if I bought more of them.

So the top is a simple striped top- a closet staple. And I paired that with a basic denim skirt. Everything here is really chill. 

The important thing here is to pick your accessories right. Now I paired this look with a super cute embroidered bag and followed up with a red lip. Look at how well that tied together!

The necklace is nice and long and keeps the eye moving along the outfit. I’m going to be honest and say that I really fucking hate wearing lipstick, but it always makes for a great pop of color when your clothing is super subdued.

And as I always do, I purchased this top in a  size large instead of a small because I don’t like my crop tops to be super cropped. I think if this top was more cropped it would be a little less casual than I was going for anyway.
