Pastel Stripes

Summer StyleSummer Style

I am such a sucker for stripes. Honestly, my closet is probably made up of nearly fifty percent stripes! If I want to buy a striped top it has to really stand out, and this pastel striped top did. A few weeks ago I stopped in Madewell and this top had caught my eye along with a multicolored pastel striped dress but I moved on. A few weeks later I got an email that everything at Madewell was 20% off (woohoo!) so I stopped in to pick up the top. I also loved the dress version of it but the top will offer a lot more versatility in my wardrobe. Versatility is key!

This top will go with so many fun bottom options such as jeans (light or dark wash!), pastel skirts and yellow denim, which would be a lot of fun to pair with! I also have a pair of light wash flare jeans that have sequins at the bottom of them, this top paired with those jeans would be such a fun 70's inspired look. On this day in particular Derek and I were walking around the neighborhood of Fishtown here in Philadelphia and were on the go for most of the afternoon. My most comfortable jeans and low mules were a necessity on this day. We stopped for brunch and for a bit of record and plant shopping followed by an ice cream date. I had started the day with one of my best friends, grabbing coffee and browsing thrift stores before meeting up with Derek. I brought my favorite tote bag with me to store my book since I had time to kill before Derek would be meeting up with me. Don't you love when you have time to lay in the park and read? It's one of my favorite things to do on a summer day but I feel like I rarely have the time!

Are you also a sucker for striped tops? If so, what has to be different about it to make you buy it? Lately I've been all about trying to narrow down my closet (I have way too many things that I don't wear!) so I'm trying to be extra mindful before making any purchases. With fall right around the corner I'm going to be doing another closet cleanse, and I'm sure there will be plenty of striped tops for me to sort through!
