tailored stripes


DOES ANYONE EVER second guess their outfit? Sometimes with the overload of personal style out there, I've been overwhelmed with comparison and not feeling confident in my choices. Especially while living on a budget, I won't feel glamourous, polished or on-trend enough. But lately, I've decided to brush those feelings away and just wear what feels good. And stripes are my definite go-to! I feel like I can never go wrong in a good stripe. Paired with tailored shorts and a bold lip, I could take this outfit from day to night by swapping out flats for heels and adding a tailored white blazer. I love versatility.

What is your go-to outfit that never fails to make you feel great? Have a lovely Tuesday everyone!

  2. I second guess myself all the time. You always look perfect, so I don't know what you're worried about! You make me regret cutting off my own hair...

  3. I agree that you can never go wrong with stripes! My go-to outfits that never fail are skinny jeans and a blouse. I think it's normal for anyone to second guess what they're wearing but as long as you feel good in it, then I think you'll make it look good. This outfit's a winner!
