Olive + Stripes

Olive + Stripes

Pulling a few staples from my closet for today’s look. Here’s the way I see it. EVERY girl should have a basic black and white stripe swing dress in her closet. It works with so many different looks from summer to fall. In summer I like to keep it simple with a great pop of bright color and some comfy sandals. Fall is when it gets really fun. You can add various layers…..think denim jackets/vests, cardigans or something like this olive utility vest along with cute booties or wedges.

Can I just tell you how much I love the versatility of this vest? I love it with stripes, neutrals, blush pink, hot pink, neon yellow….the list goes on. I picked this gem up at Old Navy last year sometime, but I’ve linked up to a very similar option below.

I also wanted to chat a little about accessories. For this look, they are what really jazz up these basics and make them something special. I got some great new Taudrey pieces recently and I’m so excited at the idea of not having to put away all my cute tassel bracelets for fall(most of mine are bright colors). This new set comes in a brown/gold combination with my initial on it. LOVE!

Hey, if you haven’t already, you must go enter the $300 Taudrey giveaway happening this week here!

So, a couple of things happened last week…one, I FINALLY started a Facebook page for the blog. I’d love it if you followed along with me there!

The other thing that happened? I got the chance to see my sweet friend Tia’s new boutique that just opened here in town and chat with her about all the great things she has in the works! Seriously so excited about it!! I told her to expect to see me on a very regular basis. One of the things I left with was this beaded necklace with the interchangeable horn detail that clips on and off. I can totally see a cute fall tassel hanging from it as well.

So if you’re in the Baton Rouge/Prairieville area, go stop in! SO many cute things and Tia is the sweetest!

Lastly, I can’t sign off without mentioning these Karen Walker sunnies. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a pair and see how they work on me. If you’re hesitant about buying a pair straight out online without trying them first, you might give Ditto a go. It’s a service that rents out designer eyewear for a small monthly fee. You can return them whenever you’re ready or you have the option to buy as well. If you decide to try them out, be sure to use code JANUARYHART for your first month free.

Ok, that’s it! Have a great night, ladies and thanks so much for reading this novel of a blog post today! 🙂
