How is it Monday already? Lately I’ve been feeling myself living for the weekend… just racing through the week in anticipation of Friday. We only have one life to live and you’re supposed to cherish every second, so here’s hoping that’s easier said than done!
I know last week marked the official start of fall, but as long as it’s above 70 degrees (… and when has it not been), then I’m still going to treat it like it’s summer – striped button downs, white jeans, sandals… you name it! Here in the Midwest we live most of the year in the cold, so you can bet I’m going to hold on to summer for as long as possible. I honestly don’t see how people are wearing sweaters, blanket scarves, or boots… like aren’t y’all hot?
Anyways, I picked up this striped button down from Banana Republic, and it was the perfect staple this summer! I’m a sucker for anything striped, and the slightly oversized fit completely sold me. I know I always say this, but I really am trying to buy things that are more timeless, and won’t just wear for a few months – so you can believe I’ll be holding on to this! The one rule I do follow, however, is not wearing linen into fall, so I must say that I’m super sad to be parting with this little number for the next few months.
Striped Button Down: Banana Republic (similar here & with a twist front!) // Jeans: Old Navy (my favorite pair of white jeans) // Sandals: Gianni Bini (similar)
