All about Stripes

I’m a firm believer and patron of the simple look.  Of course I love a good statement necklace, or extravagant pattern mixing but I must say my go-to look is always simple yet chic.  (At least I like to think so!!)  Today in LA we were back to summer weather, so I had to keep cool whilst adding some Fall accessories.  I opted for the perfect little bootie and hat to add a little autumn into my summer vibe. The ankle boot was a staple last year and will also be this year so if you don’t already own a pair I suggest you give them a try.   These Anine Bing boots have been my favorites all last season.  They are pricey but were my investment piece last season, and I’m so happy I took the plunge.  You can find many affordable ankle boots that look just as stylish as these in every price range.

Distressed denim and stripes are the perfect combo.  I feel the boyfriend jean shorts give a little edge to the look, while the stripes add some flare to a simple jersey shirt.

I just bought this Banana Republic shirt and its perfect.  Has anyone else noticed the change in Banana?  I’m so happy with the addition of Marissa Webb as Creative Director.  She has kept their sophisticated business look but has incorporated a younger  hip vibe.  My next blog post will be about the New Banana Republic so be sure to check it out.  I opted for a Large size as I wanted something loose and flowing.  The link I posted is for a similar stripped shirt as I don’t see this exact shirt online.  It most likely is still in stores as I had just purchased it this past weekend.

With Love…
