stripe party

[ Blouse: J.Crew (on sale!) | Jacket: Gap (love this one) | Jeans: J.Crew Factory | Bag: BCBG (similar) | Shoes: Pelle Moda (also love these) | Sunglasses: Forever 21 | Lipstick: Tom Ford 'Patrick' ]

I've been meaning to check out this installation, part of the Orange Walls mural project, since seeing it on Style Charade.  When it comes to art, I gravitate towards the graphic and colorful pieces (as showcased hereherehere and here).  I would love to have something like this (on a much smaller scale) in our apartment!

I planned to wear this outfit without the jacket, but decided to add it before walking out the door and I'm so glad I did.  I love how all the different stripes oddly work well together.  If you're looking for a fun addition to your work wardrobe, this shirt is it.  It's crisp, lightweight, and fits really well, but the unexpected details like the sequins collar and bold stripes down the front really make it shine.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Thanks to the recent development here, there is no longer a place to be avoided at night. This is a perfect location for a classy, elegant event. It’s great when everyone gathers at Chicago venues for an incredible picture.
