Grid & Stripes With A Pop Of Color


Hello Human,

I hope your week has been going well. No matter how much or how hectic it gets, remember to take time for yourself. For me, a part of this therapy is when I’m happy expressing myself visually, and now bringing a part of that visual to you. So enjoy !




I love some short suit action.  It’s classy and fun to wear at the same time, especially when you create your own combination. For this look, I paired my black and white grid blazer from Express ( which I love) with a pair of white and black striped shorts by Silence and Noise (bought at TJ Maxx). Mixing the grid and striped pieces gave the look a slight contrast yet remained uniform and clean overall.

Giving the pieces a pop of color, I wore a vintage British Crown Colony yellow blouse with a neck tie, that is actually meant for the waist. I thought the neck tie would add a touch of structure. Being it was windy, I layered some stockings underneath the shorts and paired the outfit with black and white striped Sam Edelman pointy toed sling back heels and accessorized with a Tory Burch crossbody bag, that I wore as a clutch.

For a more structured look, I would style this outfit with ankle boots. For a more casual feel, I would wear this look with black or white leather sneakers, for a classic twist, pair with oxfords.
