Summer Essentials: Striped Tees and Denim Skirts

Skirt: J.Crew Top: Loft Shoes: Loft Purse: Gucci Earrings: Ann Taylor Sunglasses: Madewell Lips: Nars in Cruella

Oops, I did it again. Didn’t play with your heart, Britney Spears style, but I did wear this denim skirt again! Well at least I warned you last time I posted 😉

Striped tees are a summertime basic for me. I love that this one has ruffle details on the sleeve too, which help make it a little beyond basic too. When I was packing for our Napa/Maui trip, I knew this white skirt had to come along. It goes with literally everything! I’m so glad I got it- I used to totally overwear my white jeans in the summer and while I am sure I’ll still do that, the skirt is a nice replacement for jeans too! You can just replace the jeans in just about any outfit with the skirt. Since the skirt sits a bit higher- it falls at my natural waist- I like wearing it with shorter tops or when I tuck my top in just to elongate my torso. I’ve also taken to knotting my tops to give that shorter length illusion for some tops- like you can see above and also in this post.

Now that you are well aware that stripes and white denim skirts are two essential summer pieces, can we take a second to talk about these flowers? So pretty! I was obsessed with all the flowers around Napa- at our hotel, the vineyards, just growing on the side of the road. It was flower heaven! We snapped these photos on our hotel’s property and to say I was in love with it is putting it lightly. If you want more Napa info, be sure to check out my travel guide here too 🙂

What are your summertime essentials?

xoxo, Jenna

    I love it! I can’t stop buying stripes, it’s a problem. But the summer for me means so many dresses and open toed shoes!

    Hi Jenna,

    Cute outfit! Do you find that your shirts stretch out a bit if you knot them? I love the look, but am curious if it changes the shape of the tee.

      Erica, such a good question! So for this tee, it was only temporary and went away after I dried it briefly in my dryer. But definitely if I wore it tied up for a few hours and then took it out it would be a bit mis-shapen. It works really easily for button up shirts- like a chambray- because it doesn’t change their shape. With a lighter tee shirt/cotton it’s probably more likely to happen. Hope this helps!

    What a cute tee! I’m loving the details on the sleeves, and it looks great with the white skirt. Those flowers are beautiful too!
