Summer Stripes

Happy Hump Day, y'all!

This outfit has got me a little tied up, and ironically so has life. With wedding planning, summer living, and just regular every day life stuff, things have been Busy, with a capital B. Outfits imitate life, life imitates outfits, I suppose!

For my outfit inspo this week I'm wearing a striped linen, sleeveless button down from Zara. I bought this top last year so this exact version is no longer available, but I linked similar options below! This is one of my favorite summer shirts. I love the color, and I have a thing for stripes, so this top tends to be one of the things I gravitate to most in my closet.

I styled the shirt by buttoning the top two buttons and tying the rest up to show a little belly, but I've worn it as everything from a beach cover-up, to buttoned up and tucked in, to open with a tank under. To me, this is part of the joy of getting dressed - being creative with my clothes, and seeing how many times I can repurpose the same piece to get completely different looks. Just because a shirt in a store hangs on the hanger one way, doesn't mean that's the only way it should hang on you. Have fun with your clothing; make them your own!
