stripes never get old

Blazer: H&M (January ’12) (similar – at F21, here, here and here)  

Top: Forever21 (can’t find it online – but similar here and here)  

Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Zara (similar here, here, here, here and here– ton of options)
Bag: H&M

Happy Hump Day!

I’m in disbelief that today is August 1! Seriously?!?

Clearly a blazer is not really needed this time of year, unless you work in a office where they like to freeze you to death. Or those restaurants that like to kick you out as fast as possible by keeping it way too cold so they can get more customers in faster – no wait ever (that’s my reasoning behind it).
Or you just like blazers and don’t mind melting wearing one.
Whatever, it’s all cool!

    Stripes are here to stay and blazers are perfect for offices that blast the AC. I'm constantly adding a cardi or blazer for that reason. I love yours layered over the lace.

    Oh my, LOVE this look! I bought a striped blazer thinking it might be hard to get a lot of wear out of it, but it was so worth it. I have found so many looks!

    Love your lace top and AE jeans – I need to find a pair that look good as yours!

      Lilly said:

      I have the hardest time finding THE perfect jeans. AE ones are pretty inexpensive and fit nicely. My only complaint is – they are super low. I have to watch my back side when I bend lol

      The infamous bauble necklace ๐Ÿ˜‰ You can get it for a lot less than what J.Crew sells it for – on eBay or Etsy…just do a search for Bubble necklace ๐Ÿ™‚

    I've heard they keep restaurants cold because you eat more when you are cold. Maybe that's why? Who knows, those sneaky bastards! ๐Ÿ˜‰
