I am so into stripes. I got this outfit a few weeks ago an can’t stop wearing it. Well, at least parts of it. It’s separates! Separates that go together and look like a great striped dress. It’s so comfortable and light for summer–I really can’t get enough of this skirt and top from the Loft.
So I keep wearing it. Lots of ways. This time with a white pencil skirt. Ready for summer and ready for work. And if you’re going somewhere more casual…
Always add a gray T-shirt. And if you’re feeling it, tie it in a knot for a summertime crop top.
Now go forth and mix and match!
I wear all black a lot. Maybe it’s a New York Thing or maybe it’s a Rae Thing–at this point I’m not sure I know the difference.
But I do know that I felt cute in this outfit. It’s a little hard to see, but there’s super cute pleats on my top, which added a nice texture. To complete the look I added sparkle with a necklace and gold-tipped heels. I think this could easily go from the office to any after work fun.
Pants from Gap, shirt from Target, shoes from Zara, bag and necklace from H&M.
Sometimes, in the dead of winter when I’m dreaming of beach vacation, it helps me to wear a little pop of color. Or, well, a lot.
Dress from H&M, sweater from Uniqlo (and inspired by my friend Anna who had a cardigan in a similar color that I was obsessed with), Hue tights and shoes from Penneys. Belt is one that came with another skirt.
Wearing bright colors in winter was one part an effort to pretend I didn’t have a cold, one part a way to convince me it was warmer than it actually was, and one part just plain fun. Try it! It’s a guaranteed pick-me-up on gray days. When you’re ready to ditch work and head to fun, dress it up a little differently. Like this.
I undid the belt, threw on some leopard flats from Target and donned a silk scarf as a headband. When it warms up I’ll ditch the tights and the sweater and have a whole new look. Don’t let anyone tell you that a hot pink dress isn’t versatile.
