A Striped Set

It's no secret that I have an obsession with stripes. I love how they're eternally classic yet infinitely versatile. So I'm always looking for ways to incorporate more stripes into my wardrobe without looking like I just own multiple versions of the same clothes. This matching top and pants set fit the bill perfectly and was so summery that I couldn't resist buying it a few months ago. Unfortunately, the never-ending D.C. winter meant that it sat in my closet until I moved out last week.

While stopping in Charleston on the drive home from school, I was finally able to break out this outfit  for a casual dinner and visit to Rainbow Row. I kept my accessories simple with bamboo bangles, thin gold hoop earrings, and brown leather sandals, and it was perfect for a warm summer evening by the water.

Quite honestly, although the stripes and tie front are so "me," I was a little nervous about sporting this ensemble because I'm not usually one for a bare midriff. However, I've been trying to be more adventurous with my clothes lately and was surprised to find that, once I put it on, I felt so confident and got lots of compliments! So if there's a style or trend you've been wanting to try, I encourage you to just do it! Whether you end up liking it or not, you'll learn more about your personal style and what you feel best in.

What are you excited to wear this summer? Will you be trying anything new?
