Failsafe Summer Formula: Stripes + Culottes

All pictures and little talk today, my friends, because the only time I can make for myself to type this out seems to be on my evening train commute home and I’ve gotta say, inspiration almost always escapes me when there’s a large orange crowd of somewhat tipsy Giants fans threatening to fall on top of me. Even though the words that naturally come to mind are alarmed phrases like “Hold steady!” and “Sit still!” towards my immediate tottering seat companions, I’m willing my hands to type out a recommended outfit formula for you all because it’s officially SUMMER!

Stripes are everybody’s favorite, we know this. Wide-legged pants should be everybody’s favorite if they aren’t already, we also know this. Wear them together and you’ve got an airy, classic with a slight mod flare type of look that serves any summer activity. This striped top’s a slight edgy update to the usual with its mesh neck detail and psst… if your first thought was whether the mesh fabric makes your neck itch (yup, that was me.), it does not. Huzzah!

Thank you for reading and have a great week(end) ahead!
