Blue Stripes & Plaid

So, let me tell you...

Looking back at these pictures, I'm crushing on this monochromatic blue outfit combination. The mix of stripes and plaid print coupled with the light wash denim gave this look the right amount of edge. I've said it before, but I'm a sucker for stripes so when I saw this limited edition asymmetrical band top from Banana Republic, my heart skipped a beat. I love the off the shoulder band detail. You may start to soon notice (and currently on my Instagram), that I have a slight obsession with off the shoulder things. Even if it's not meant to be worn off the shoulder, at some point I might make it be just that. Especially now that it's getting warmer, I'm keeping an eye out for the trend. So the fact that this top incorporates my favorite detail in a unique way, I'm totally loving it. I decided to pair the striped top with BR's menswear inspired plaid trousers. I love the versatility of this pant. You can dress them up for the office, or you can dress them down (mid-way) like I did with this look. Now that I'm getting older I appreciate having variety in my pant selection, I always love a good pair of jeans, but having a nice trouser to wear makes me feel a bit more sophisticated. Sometimes I want to just put on my big girl pants and roll. And I can totally do that with these trousers from BR.
