The Classic Brunette: Blue Striped Top

Blue Striped Top






Striped Blouse (c/o) | Distressed Black Jeans | Monogram Necklace | Platform Espadrilles (great designer dupe for only $60!) |

Hello everyone, glad to be back! I had to push back my blogging schedule for some personal reasons, so that's why I missed all of last week. I hate taking blogging breaks, but sometimes it's just necessary when life throws you a curveball. Anyhow,  it feels like it's been forever since I've done an outfit post, so I wanted to share one with you today! I'm going to try and add more outfit posts on the blog and I would love to know what types of looks you would like to see (be sure to tell me in the comments!).

Since I've graduated I definitely feel the need to start adding some more versatile pieces to my wardrobe. For me that means something that can possibly double as business casual wear. Although I'm not currently looking for a job (that will start in September!) I do want to start building up a more professional wardrobe! I love this v neck striped top from Romwe because it is perfect for work, but can still be worn as just a cute top. The little tie details on the sleeves are too cute and are perfect for the summer! The material on this top does make you feel a little warm, so I'll probably be wearing it on cooler days. I paired it with a pair of distressed black jeans that I recently bought and have fallen in love with. I've been on the hunt for a good pair of distressed jeans for a while now and came across these ones at Old Navy and bought them in both black and white. They're so perfect because they're both comfortable and flattering, both necessities when purchasing jeans!

I'm also still obsessing over these platform espadrille dupes that I found a while ago. They're so comfy and instantly upgrade any outfit! I honestly can't believe that they're only $60, the next pair on my list is the cognac ones!

What are your favorite ways to add more work appropriate pieces to your closet?
