Summer Stripes

I’ll be back in Chicago this afternoon (currently writing this from 30,000 ft!) and I was beyond thrilled when I took a little peek at the forecast this week! It’s felt like fall for the last two weeks in France and if there’s anything to ease the heartache of leaving Paris, it’s warm summer-like weather in Chicago.

I wore this casual combo for dinner with a girlfriend when I was in town a few weeks ago. You can’t go wrong with the classic combination of a striped top and white jeans, especially when you’re holding on to these final few summer moments.

This blue and white striped bow-tied top is currently on major sale ($34.99 without any additional promo codes!) so scoop it up quick! It’s one of those classic styles that you’ll wear for years to come and you can always pull it out on vacation this winter, too. (It’s also available in a pretty hibiscus pink color and navy blue, too!)

I mentioned these white jeans a few weeks ago and I’m seriously obsessed with them! I brought them with me on my trip(s) to both Nantucket and France and I’ve only washed them once… They hold their shape SO WELL without stretching out. Highly recommend, especially since they’re only $40!
