Like finding treasure at the end of the rainbow, these forgotten outfit pics from last month were hiding in an obscure folder on my computer.  And since I'm still sifting through over a thousand vacation pics, it's a nice surprise to not have to worry about them for another day.  So, before I inundate you with obnoxious beach photos, please feast your eyes on this go-to casual look.  Featuring stripes layered on top of a Canadian Tuxedo, paired with a patriotic Bay striped bag. You know, just paying homage to my country ;)

  1. Can't wait for your vacation pics so we can live vicariously through you!

    You've inspired me to try layering with my denim button up!

    PS Please do a post about how you curl your hair!!

  16. do you think everyone can pull of this look or does extra baggy dress shirts under sweaters make you look shorter, chubbier than you actually are. tips? should one crop it with some DIY to suit their height and fit their bodies better? xo jenny
