*This post highlights wearing stripes with stripes featuring items that were given to me as a gift in exchange for my honest opinion.
I know I keep disappearing, but this year has been a doozy so far. I can’t believe how busy I’ve been with my day job. Now that I’m busier as well as going back into the office twice a week, it’s not as easy to pay attention to posting regularly. To be honest, I’m a little bummed about it. This creative outlet has been my sanity over the years that I’ve maintained it. Not to mention the fact that I’ve worked from home consistently now for over 2 years. I’m not sure how I’m going to cope with my new schedule. Ugh! It’s depressing. I’ll just end this work conversation by saying that I’m hoping to change things for myself REAL soon. You’ll have to keep reading to find out how that goes. 🙂
If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve already seen my look for today. I wanted to make sure I talked a little bit about why I put my outfit together the way I did. I’ve mentioned in previous posts how much I love stripes. What I don’t talk about as often is how much I enjoy wearing stripes with stripes. As you can see, I’m wearing J. Jill’s Mixed-Stripes Tunic with one of my favorite striped scarves. My tip for wearing stripes with stripes is to try switching up the colors a bit. Also, it’s important not to overdo it by wearing something too busy. J. Jill’s 5-Pocket Denim Leggings were the perfect match for this look. They’re so soft and stretchy, I’m going to live in them!
Here’s my look:
