Stripes On White


What season are stripes NOT good for?  Name one, I dare ya.  I've been loving a white striped top with white jeans, white shorts, or a white skirt lately.  It feels so fresh and relaxed!


Little secret: I sleep in this shirt.  I bought it a long time ago and wore it a decent amount, but then I realized something about it always made me feel pajama-ish.  It hung in my closet for over a year unworn (yeesh, I know...but I was pregnant for 9 of those months too, so yeah...) until I recently figured out it's the perfect sleeping shirt.

However, now that I've been wearing it to sleep I of course want to wear it in a bunch of outfits again!  Dah!  I need two of these things!  


Anyway, if this top was paired with the white jeans by itself the whole thing might still resemble pajamas, or at least not look entirely pulled together.  If that happens with your outfit, just add other pieces with more structure or texture to them, like a denim jacket, a leather tote, a statement necklace, or shoes with some sort of straps or details.  I did all of the above!

And speaking of needing two of these tops, this H&M one looks incredibly similar, at least online.  I'm sure about the material and whatnot, and my stripes are actually thin double stripes for each line while the H&M one is single stripes, but the neckline looks exactly like the one I'm wearing and the overall feel is very similar.

  9. Oh whoops! My friend gave it to me, but it's from a shop I adore: http://www.carolinegshop.com/category/jewelry


    This necklace isn't listed for sale, but it was the one that was sent a month or two ago as part of the Necklace Club.

  10. Very timely!! I've been looking for (probably) a month now for a white shirt with thin black stripes and I finally did last weekend (found two!). But then, I cannot seem to decide what to do with it now (I also have a white shirt with navy stripes). I was even looking at your old posts about a specific item yesterday.

    Please post more work suitable (but still casual) outfit ideas of the striped tee? :)

  12. You're so right, stripes are so versatile, year round. I may or may not have 3 of the options you posted (sorry not sorry:)! Love your look, that top looks great and if it's pj comfortable, then I would approve of having 2 in every color available.

  19. Love the yellow necklace- is it recent, and where is it from?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks! It's recent, but it's not really sold in the shop. It's from Caroline G. and she has a Necklace Club. It was one of the necklaces from the necklace club earlier this year.

  21. This is very cute, Audrey! I just got a pair of white jeans after looking for 3+ years, and I can't wait to wear it with all kinds of striped tops, my denim jacket, my olive utility vest, etc. :)
