Striped Tee Style



I love pieces I  can wear over and over again yet wear differently each time and a striped tee is on the top of my list of such a clothing item. Dare I say next to jeans it is the most versatile item in my closet. 

One thing that I really love about a striped tee is that it’s perfectly fine on its own - pair with jeans and go. It’s timeless, chic and has just enough to not be boring. Of course, pairing with some accessories is always fun and takes the look from safe to adding in some personal style. 
 
 
 
 

While great on its own like a fine wine a striped tee also makes a great paring and can easily be turned into a layering piece under a cardigan or even take a short sleeve dress into fall and winter. 
 
 

 
But if you really want to have fun with a stripe tee than  print mixing is wear it’s at. I’m usually hesitant to mix prints but a striped tee is enough of a neutral base that it’s not too much competition. I’m personally a fan of keeping the stripe in a color that’s already in the print but you could really go wild and pick complimenting or even contrasting colors - that’s what personal style is all about, making it your own. 
 


 
I hope my looks will make you think twice before passing on a “boring” striped tee and inspire you to do some style remix of your own!

  1. Okay, I know this post is about the striped shirt (so cute btw!), but I am LIVING for those pink heart sunglasses! I've seen them on so many bloggers and I need to cave and buy a pair.

    1. you know, I didn't even notice everyone else wearing them until AFTER I bought them, lol! But they're super fun and don't cost too much which is good for me because I always lose or break my sunnies

  2. Stripes are so versatile, I love all the ways you styled this top! If I HAD to pick a favorite, it would be the dress with the ruffle shoulder, gorgeous!

Art and Fashion with The Dixon Gallery and Gardens

To me, fashion has always been a form of art - there's the art from the creator but also art from the wearer in how they style the piece. Because I love the art of fashion so very much it should come as no surprise that I also love more traditional art. I think a lot of people think of museums as being stuffy places but one thing I think is so wonderful about museums is that whether your family has a gallery named after them or you bought a general admission ticket it gives us all the same exposure to art and its beauty - the Mona Lisa after all smiles no more for the Louvre's benefactors than she does for the thousands of tourists that come to see her each year. In Memphis we have several wonderful museums and places to see art but the place I frequent the most is The Dixon Gallery and Gardens. I have been a member of The Dixon for over 10 years because not only is it a place of paintings on the wall and beautiful gardens it is a place of gathering with their many social ev…

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

What’s in the bag : Toiletry Essentials to Pack for Your Next Trip

I’ve  been traveling so much lately so I’ve pretty much got packing down to a science. Planning for a trip can be stressful so I’m here to make it a little easier for you and talk about the necessities, today were specifically talking about what’s in the toiletry bag. As a special treat I have teamed up with Smile Brilliant for a giveaway at the end of this post!!! When thinking about necessities I first think about the things I don’t need - hotels always have shampoo, conditioner and a hairdryer so I never bring my own to save space.  I then think about what items I use at home that I can go without for the week vs. what I use everyday. I also try to think about  products that are good for multipurpose; facial oil is a great example as I use it for a makeup remover at night , a moisturizer in the morning and I also use a small amount on the ends of my hair. Through this I’ve been able to narrow it down to only ten items.
1. Hairbrush

2. Deodorant

3. Toothbrush

4. Toothpaste

5. Facia…
