Two ways to style a striped tunic

With a couple of quick changes, this outfit can be dressed up or down. If you’re at work, or out and about on a weekend and need to switch to a more dressy look without stopping at home again –  here are a couple of things you can bring with you for a quick day to night change.

White House | Black Market striped tunic top, gifted to me; White stretchy pants, Kohl’s; White belt with double hearts, c/o Dresslily; Hot pink Kate Spade New York Sam handbag, c/o; Heart necklace, old; Heart sunglasses, Ross; Wedge sandals, Rue21; View of the Columbia River Gorge with Crown Point / Vista House, priceless.

 

I started out with no belt, a denim jacket and flat leopard print Sam Edelman sandals for a more casual day look.

I brought with me my cute little double heart belt from Dresslily, now sold out. (More heart belts here.)   And I brought a pair of wedge sandals. Then I ditched the jacket. That’s it. Super quick day to night change.

Then we tried to find a place with no people. Despite the threat of Covid19, that was actually pretty hard to do considering it was late morning by the time we set out on a nice cool summery weekend day. We ended up finding a place at the end of the Portland Women’s Forum with people further away, but a snake in the bushes. Oh my. Let’s see how fast I can walk in my wedge sandals on uneven ground to get away once I spotted a snake slithering into the bushes. I didn’t run, but got away pretty fast, I must say.

I hope you all are staying safe out there and avoiding crowds like the plague just as we are doing. We even decided as a family not to go out to Michigan for the interment of my moms ashes this week due to Covid. Too much of a risk and we already lost one family member this year. Here’s to being safe and keeping the other family members alive and kicking if at all possible!

Hearts and stripes

You probably think stars and stripes go together. Specially considering it was just the 4th of July holiday. But, not today. Today we are doing hearts and stripes.

Striped top, given to me; heart belt, Dresslily; scruffed jeans, old; rose gold sunglasses, Ross; blue suede shoes, Ross; shell earring and necklace, handmade by my dad.

I just got this heart belt in the mail from Dresslily. It is now sold out, but they do have other belts with hearts on their website. So I figured, why not wear it for the 4th of July weekend?

 

This asymmetrical striped top is a go-to for cooler summer weather, a boat ride, or staying up late to watch the neighborhood fireworks. We like to joke that summer doesn’t start in Oregon until after the fourth of July.

A special thanks to my son for all the work done on my blog this weekend.

I hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July weekend.
