Wardrobe Wednesday | Stripes & Denim Early Fall Style


The weather was amazing over this past weekend, and definitely gave me a taste for Fall. But, naturally, this week it’s heating back up. I love this limbo time, though, because it means I can make a few small changes – like close toed shoes instead of always sandals, and sleeves instead of so many tanks – but still enjoy not having to layer up just yet. And a winning combination in my book will always be denim and classic stripes. Add a belt and loafers and it’s a great modern-yet-vintage look.

Surely I’m not the only stripe-obsessed person out there, right? I actually used to only have one or two striped shirts in my wardrobe, and now I seem to keep adding every variation I can because they legitimately have different looks and uses…amiright?

Both this shirt and skirt are great finds from ThredUp, which you definitely¬†have to try out if you never have! I’ve gotten several items from there, now, at a fraction of the cost they’d be in store and the returns/exchanges have been super easy when something didn’t fit. Also a bonus that I’ve been able to sell some of my own clothes to them, too. Keeps the cycle of clothes being used and re-used and enjoyed by new owners when they’re no longer being used by their previous one, and I love that!

So here’s to the classics like denim & stripes, the slowly changing weather and thrifting online! :)

    So guilty! The percentage of striped clothes in my wardrobe keep growing… I just LOVE stripes!! Love your half-bun! You’re such an inspiration :) if I ever “lose” my curl (after having a baby or something?!) I’ll totally turn to you for inspiration! Lots of love from a fellow curly-girl
