Summer Stripes

When I first saw this top from the J.Crew x Thomas Mason collection, I admittedly considered it a bit outside of my comfort zone. I've just started my foray into the world of off-the-shoulder pieces (I know I'm late to the party!), and this top is anything but subtle with its audacious stripes and generous sleeves. However, I decided to step outside my style box and I am happy to say that I'm loving it!

This afternoon it was the perfect piece for a stroll around Old Town in 90-degree weather with lots of humidity (ugh!!).  It's a light and airy material and paired with a skirt it kept me cool despite the weather. I love how it looks with my flamingo critter belt that I purchased earlier in the summer - so cute! I topped off the look with tassel earrings from J.Crew Factory that match the blue of the striped shirt perfectly. On my feet are another hot-weather favorite - these G.H. Bass flats came into my life about two years ago now and they are truly the perfect shoe for the summer. The quality is unmatched and the cutouts keep your feet from overheating. Not to mention they're comfortable!
