Striped, I'm Sure

5/12/2014


When I'm in a clothes rut and feel like "I have nothing to wear," I default to the basics. For me, that means a striped top (I love this J. Crew one with leather sleeves; it's sold out so here's a similar one from Piperlime), jeans, my favorite heeled sandals, and a blazer. I was having one of those moments a few weeks ago before my husband and I ventured down to Adams Avenue near downtown to try Jayne's Gastropub, but my go-to look (and some hot pink lipstick) saved the night. We made our reservation on time and will definitely be going back to Jayne's (and stopping at Polite Provisions across the street for a drink).

Here are some options for re-creating a similar look. I'd love to know: what's your go-to when you aren't feeling inspired by your closet?

You had me at stripes! My go to is a chambray pullover, white ankle skinny jeans, and hot pink lips.

I love this simple, minimalist look. You added just the right amount of accessories! And yes, you must venture to Polite - their Mr. Jalapeno drink is divine (and the meatballs from Soda & Swine are equally tasty).
