Hi all! I can’t believe we’re finally in to the month of August. The Summer has really flown by! And oddly, the other day here in the Northeast, the temps took a nice turn for the better where the humidity dropped and it had me feeling a bit lustful for the Fall. So, with Fall on my mind, and a new pair of shoes in my closet, I figured this was a good time to post an outfit idea and what better idea then stripes and gray. Yeah! I know this isn’t a new combination, but I think the shoes add a modern feel to this classic pairing.
What I’m Wearing
The stripes tee I’m wearing is from the J.Crew Factory store, called a Studio Tee (Of course, I stopped at the outlets near our beach on my way home from our vacation). I did size up to a small so it was a bit less fitted. Here are a few other versions of a stripes tee to try as well – J.Crew, Madewell, or even this fun style from BP (I actually bought this the other day!), or this long sleeve version.
I got my first pair of Jslides back in the Spring (I got my black pair back then – see my post here) and have been a convert ever since. Not only are they comfortable, stylish, reasonably priced, they come in my small feet size, 5!!! After being on the hunt, STILL, for an easy to throw on pair of gray shoes since I wear a lot of navy blue and gray, I think I found the perfect pair in these Jslides Alara Slip On Sneaker. I like the look of these because they are modern and casual but still pulled together.
You could definitely wear any medium to dark wash denim pair of jeans, distressed or no distressed, with this look. I am wearing a pair of AG denim that I got at the Nordstrom sale. They have slight distressing at the pockets. If you prefer, more distressing I also like this pair of AG.
My necklace is a long silver necklace from South Moon Under. Of course it’s not the website (insert sigh), but I literally bought it in July at the store in Rehobeth Beach, DE. Any long silver necklace would do, like this one by Kendra Scott.
