Let's Talk Stripes

Bold stripes are in this summer. If you're all about wearing this trend, look for beach-inspired stripes like the ones you might find on a beach umbrella or lounge chair. Choose super bright colors and stripes that vary in width. 

Besides this super fun off-shoulder top, my favorite way to rock stripes this season is via vertical stripes in navy and white. I love the way this looks with classic denim cut-offs and it's a great base to add brightly colored statement pieces to.

If you're not into crazy and bright stripes, you can rock the trend in a less loud way by layering them under a blazer or solid colored kimono. Opt for a light blue and white banker-striped top for a subtle take on the stripe trend.

The best thing about stripes is that they never go out of style, so adding striped pieces to your summer wardrobe this season means you can keep them as a staple for years to come.

Don't be scared to stock up on striped pieces. Stripes are a classic pattern that's always be in style, even if the trend spotlight isn't focusing directly on it.

 VENNDY collaboration

Before we talk about the outfit details, I want to introduce you to a platform I've just started using recently. It's called VENNDY, and it's a cool new way to curate looks and save product favorites. You can save your favorite products into 8 different categories like fashion, beauty, inspo, lifestyle, travel and wellness. You can then use these products to create stories that are either closed - i.e. curated just by you - or open which means they are shared and others can add their favorites too.

You can also share your stories to social, like pinning them to your Pinterest board. Plus follow friends, like their stories / products, etc. This platform is perfect for bloggers who want to put together looks for their followers, but it's also great for the everyday girl who wants to curate her favorite things and create collections to share with others.

Go try it! Add your favorite summer striped piece to this shared story: SUMMER STRIPESThe platform is still invite only, but just let them know I referred you to get an invite. They have a chrome extension which makes adding a product or service from any website super simple. If you can't figure it out, just shoot them an email.

Summer Stripes

This top is my current favorite off shoulder. It's just so bright and fun, and pairs perfectly with tassels. (oh yeah, and its under $25)  I paired it with some black high waisted shorts to draw attention to the top but also to give the outfit a little balance from the bright colors on the top.

I'm also wearing my favorite Gianni Bini wedges, and some black and white geometric earrings that you can get anymore but these, these, and these give a similar look. I also paired it with my favorite blue and gold bangle to carry over a pop of color from the top. This one and this one are also good options.

You can also shop this whole look via the VENNDY widget below.
