My Favorite Trend: STRIPES!

My Favorite Trend: STRIPES!

Happy Tuesday, babes! Today I'm sharing a look that is just PERFECT for summer — from the adorable, lightweight top to the white shorts to the fun floral necklace, this look has every summer color and trend you'll love! If you know me at all, you know that I live for stripes... I once counted how many were in my closet and discovered over 20!! I don't know what it is but stripes are just so fun to style, and I'm so glad that this pattern is having a major moment right now! Check out how I styled this look and find the exact items I'm wearing below.

I love this top so much because it's super comfortable, chic and lightweight — a great combination for summer! The stripes are so fun and there are adorable tie details on the sleeves. Can you even believe that this top is from Abercrombie & Fitch?! I went in there on a whim the other week and found SO much cute stuff... they've totally rebranded and have an adorable, preppy image now that I honestly fell in love with.

I paired this white and navy striped top with cozy linen white shorts from J.Crew Factory. I linked a similar pair from J.Crew above that have a fun tie detail on the side; they're the same comfortable material and come in a few gorgeous colors for summer. I'm totally in love with these comfortable and chic booties and have shared a similar pair above! The color of these lace-up booties are great for any outfit and they can be paired with a casual look or a more dressy style. 

I finished this look off with the most perfect crossbody bag from Express — it's a gorgeous grey color with gold details, has just enough room to fit all of your essentials and is the perfect Chloé dupe! I also rocked a grey flower necklace which I just realized today is apparently from the Girls section of J.Crew LOL! Not even ashamed, though, because it is too cute for spring and summer!
