Outfit: Back to My Roots

{J.Crew tee, American Eagle jeans, Timex watch}
While I feel like most of my style inspiration comes from living and going to school in NYC I was raised in three places that are all about preppy and nautical style. Starting on the North Carolina coast, where Lilly is a way of life for some people, to my current home in Massachusetts it’s been all about bright colors and stripes. These preppy and nautical parts of myself come out the most in the summertime. 
I’m a sucker for a pair of white jeans and a striped top (with bare feet no less) for a summer afternoon party. While I’d usually add a few accessories or a pair of fun shoes to switch up this look it felt just right going back to basics (and none of my shoes fit thanks to my swollen ankle). Of course by wearing white I was just setting myself up for some kind of spill. As I’ve said before, thank God for stain remover spray or else I’d have no clothes left (fyi steak juice is the worst).
