Back to School in Stripes & Sneakers

I’ve been living in denial that fall is right around the corner. When I got back to Chicago to a chilly 60-something forecast after spending two weeks in Croatia where 90-something was the norm, I had no choice but to break out the denim, add some layers, and wear one of my new crewneck sweatshirts from Old Navy. All perfect pieces for the back-to-school season!

This fall, you’ll be seeing lots of graphic prints and cheeky phrases! I couldn’t pass up this cute sweatshirt at Old Navy… It’s a sweet little reminder to remember as things get crazier and crazier in this world! L-O-V-E!

I’ve been praising Old Navy’s denim (and wearing it on the blog!) for years and years. I have at least four pairs of Old Navy’s white rockstar jeans, but when I tried on this new pair, I had to add them to my collection, too. The new 24/7 Rockstar was designed with Adirano Goldshmied and the fit and quality is unbelievable, especially for the price! This is the ‘stay white’ pair and I absolutely love the material… It sucks you in and really doesn’t stretch out throughout the day. I need to scoop up a few more pairs ASAP!

The feminine, ruffled details on this sleeveless shirt are the perfect compliment to the menswear inspired suiting stripes. So many of the back to school trends take a nod towards the masculine side (blazers, denim on denim, etc.), so I love incorporating little touches of feminine flair.

The most classic pair of leopard sneakers that go with just about everything… a definite must-have for fall! Dress them up with a little dress or pair them with denim on the weekends, you can’t go wrong.
