Denim ‘n Stripes

Black and white dress
 Maybe it’s the Mainah in me, but I’ve always felt more comfortable in a casual look. Today’s outfit is all about denim and stripes: the perfect friendship. I found this fitted denim jacket at Gap a few years back and it’s been in constant rotation ever since. I highly recommend seeking out one of your own; it can make anything into an outfit. I’m never more me than when I’m ever so slightly channeling Saturday. It’s something about that weekend freedom that makes me feel confident. I think you all know what I’m talking about!

I chose to pair my denim with a white and black striped dress from T.J.Maxx. This classic pattern and silhouette create a fresh Summer look that can be thrown on for any last minute breakfast date. There is just something about that carefree feeling when you can bounce out your door with minimal effort.

Finally, you might notice a certain stunning H&M necklace in these pictures. Trust me, it has the power to make any casual items into an outfit that’s anything but ordinary. While I was immediately drawn to this piece, it is outside of my comfort zone and I was little unsure about wearing it. However, the sheer volume of complements after I left my house was exactly the reassurance I needed. I absolutely suggest that you find one item per outfit that pushes your comfort level. It was the best thing that I did today!
