Classic Stripes

Striped Boatneck Tee c/o J. McLaughlin || White Checked Shirt c/o The Mint Julep Boutique || Wedges: Jessica Simpson || Renegade Cluster Bracelet || Marble Earrings || Sunglasses || Handbag
There’s nothing that reminds me more of a classic summer outfit than navy and white stripes.  It’s a look that will truly never go out of style and for something so classic, I prefer higher quality pieces.  Let me introduce to you J. McLaughlin.  When I think about the style of J. McLaughlin, I picture myself on a dock at the beach in the beginning of summer about to hop on a yacht or something.  This brand has some of the finest quality, timeless, and classic pieces I’ve seen.  This striped boatneck tee isn’t just a regular tee.  It’s a cool tee.  Really though- it is made of a material that is really cooling on my skin (Nylon/Spandex… just checked).  It is a little pricier than most striped tops you might find but I promise you… it is actually worth it.  I never knew a shirt could be so comfortable and well-made and I even considered sleeping in mine one night.  I think I may end up getting the coral and lake blue one too.  This top would also make a great gift for a friend/mom/grandmother… I know my mom would LOVE it.

I’m getting super excited for the summer but I don’t know if I’m quite ready for it.  Starting next weekend, it’s about to be jam packed with activities.  I also found a new apartment that I’ll be moving to at the end of July and I couldn’t have found a more perfect one! It’ll be a lot closer to my work too which I’m pretty excited about.
