Stripes and linen button downs are so in this season, I hope you love this combo as much as I do! I spotted this white and blue striped Zara top about 2 years ago when I studied abroad in Prague, and now linen tops are all I see! I paired it with these black ripped jeans to put a little dark twist on a springy look. People tend to say that navy and black don't match but I don't listen to that, navy blue DEFINITELY matches with black! Now that I think about it, I actually tend to wear blue tops with black jeans a lot and in my personal opinion, they work very well together.
To get "the blue" look I was going for, I based this outfit around the Zara top. You can base any outfit around a single item, from a top to a bag to sunglasses to shoes to a necklace...you're the stylist! When I added the black jeans I knew that all blue accessories were going to be a must! First I went right to these really cool 275 Central, denim colored, snake print lace up espadrille sneaker. These espadrille sneakers are my new favorite go to's. These shoes are from a store in my town...I love them so much that I had to buy them in the beige color too! Next came the Navy Suede Proenza Schouler Satchel, and my Illestiva blue mirrored rimless sunglasses. The Illestiva's were the perfect finishing touch, as sunglasses always are! Hope you have a wonderful weekend xxx
