{h&m basic stripes}

Stripes + oxblood + turquoise.
I'd say it's a pretty darn good way to wear basic stripes!

H&M "Basic" Shirt // Target Pants, old (similar) // Francesca's Necklace, not online (even better option!, also love) // Tory Burch Reva Flats // Tory Burch Earrings // MAC Lipstick in "See Sheer"

I picked this shirt up from H&M on a whim because my train was delayed, I was bored, and it was supposed to rain that weekend when all I had packed were tank tops. Best decision I've ever made. Their tops, in particular from the "basic collection," are always so versatile and well made. They're simple cotton (normally) but they always hold up through many washes and outfits! I'm honestly surprised I haven't put it on Instagram before because I've worn it multiple times. It's that comfortable. Plus the cut is extremely forgiving even with horizontal stripes.
This turquoise necklace was a second impulse buy at Francesca's while waiting for that same train… Y'all already know my stance on turquoise: wear it with everything and whenever possible. It makes everything look better ;) If you're following me on Instagram then you might remember it from this post. I am never shy to repeat an outfit or jewelry (because what would the point in that be?!).

Side Note: THIS. VIEW. Emily found this little hidden gem in Rosslyn! She probably got really annoyed that I didn't face her because I will never get tired of staring at DC and the Washington Monument :)

Thanks for reading, friends!

Love Always,


  1. LOVE this outfit!! Might have to go to H&M soon :) And that is a gorgeous view!!

    1. You won't regret it!! Their basics sections is perfect. Plus the prices are in a designer's budget ;)
      If only my bedroom view was of the DC skyline haha

  2. Love your style
