Summer Stripes (& Ruffles)

After 4 painful, exhausting years, my laptop finally gave up on life a week ago. Which to be completely honest, is a pretty impressively long time for any electronic device to survive with me (just ask all the phones I've destroyed over the years) but also meant I kept putting off writing any new posts. Until today!! My laptop is still being repaired but I realized I should post my summer outfit pictures before, you know, summer's over. 

So here's my latest summer outfit, brought to you via my sister's laptop (thanks Christine)! I've been feeling a lot more comfortable with my appearance since being more careful about what I eat & making sure to exercise, so I've started shopping more again. I'm obsessed with this new white ruffled off the shoulder top from H&M and loved how it looked with my comfy black and white striped pants, last worn on my trip to Cabo! Definitely a fun summertime look, perfect for a day with friends or a nice weekend brunch.

I wanted to keep this look simple and summery- I seriously love that these pants came with a matching shirt but pair so well with any neutral tops. I also wore my favorite statement necklace from Kate Spade, the white stones add to the summery vibe of the outfit while the mirrored & crystal setting around each stone adds some glitter.

This was definitely the perfect outfit for a day spent lounging around with friends before heading out to dinner together. Comfy enough to sit poolside in, and cute enough to run in to people you went to high school with (not that that happened, thank goodness). Definitely could've dressed this whole look up with a pair of wedges or even nice sandals, but I decided to just stick to flipflops~

Shout out to my little Acacia for taking these pictures, you're the best!!! She pretty much took all the pictures for my next 3 posts, which I'll write....eventually. Hope you all have a great weekend!
