stripes in the west village

When in doubt, wear an oversized stripe shirt. It’s fool-proof. And now you’re about to hear why I’m loving this one so much.

I love a good stripe: shirts, sweaters, pants, skirts…anything really. I love the interest it adds to your look without really trying. So when I saw this stripe shirt on someone I follow on Instagram (I cannot remember who it was, but I want to thank them because I’m seriously obsessed), I knew it was something I really wanted and would get a lot of wear out of it. I think the first day I wore it, I threw my hair into a top knot and thought it was the coolest/cutest look ever! I’ve also worn it with my favorite jeans too! When something is super versatile, I call it a win in my book!

I mean, I’m all about a good simple stripe shirt, but this one is somethin’ special. I mean the collar, oversized fit, variegated stripes, and cute sleeve details…ugh! It’s just a great shirt. Oh and did I mention that it also happens to be under $15! #Steal. I personally love the blue stripes (duh, that’s why I bought it), but it also comes in a black and white stripe combo!

I paired it with my go-to ponte pants – no, seriously, I’ve had about 6 pairs of these pants since like 2012 – and favorite mules (also worn here in this post) for a super simple and casual look for a day of running around the West Village!
