Basic Stripes Turned Not So Basic

Hey there friends,

I have been a little MIA on my blog this past week, but not to worry because I’ve got tons of summer stuff planned! My mom has been in town for 2 weeks, so we have been spending time doing mom things and finishing up school and baseball with the littles.  And thank you to my sweet mom for taking these photos of me!  Nice work for someone that doesn’t have an iPhone. ;). She is one of my biggest fans, and loves to read all my posts, so THANK YOU mom!

Today’s blog post is all about this basic stripe top from Target that can be taken day to night with just a few added accessories!  Those that know me, know I love a good stripe top. My closet is the proof! 🙂  This top is a linen blend and so comfortable and cool for hot summer days.

This easy stripe top can be worn with cut offs, denim jeans and so much more!  I loved dressing it up with white denim for an evening out.  I dressed it up even more by adding a pair of statement earrings.  I snagged these last week for $13 and just love the pop of color.

Adding a statement clutch for an evening out is easy.  I am still loving this bamboo inspired bag.  It is an Amazon dupe to an expensive designer bag.  The biggest question I get is how does your stuff stay in.  I can fit my full size wallet, iPhone, lipstick and more.  You have the option of a small or large bag, and I think the small was plenty big.  The slates are close enough together that nothing falls out.  (unless you stuck a credit card in by itself, then yes that would fall through)

I am loving so many of the cute summer clutches right now.  These are my favorites and they are all under $50!

A great nude heel is something everyone needs!  I have been wearing these the last two months and they go with everything!  The best part is they are under $40 and the heel isn’t high at all.  I wish I could do the higher heel still, but after walking a few minutes my feet are DONE!  This pair is great if you are looking for a lower heel option and their is a cushion on the ball of the foot for added support.  They also come in tons of colors too, not just the nude color!

So, next time you are looking for a date night look, don’t worry about finding a new top, just dress up one of your basic closet staples, like this stripe top! Adding some fun accessories can change an entire look and make it day to night. I have found some great stripe tops in all different price ranges! Which is your favorite?
