Stripes - Now and Later | Mom Style Remix

I am a huge fan of stripes and I would definitely describe them as a staple in my closet.  No matter the season, you will find me wearing lots of stripes.  We still have quite a bit of summer left... 4 weeks until school starts and probably another two months of tank tops and shorts.  Even so, I can't help starting to think about fall.  So to ease my way into fall, while still battling the heat, I thought it would be fun to style some of my summer pieces in ways I can wear now and later...

First up, a typical summer outfit for me... a t-shirt (that just happens to be striped) tucked into a black maxi skirt.  I love the easiness of this outfit, which is one of the reasons I recently wore this to a friend's birthday party. It is perfect for a warm summer evening... it's casual and breezy, and just "dressy" enough for a summer party.  When wearing a simple outfit like this, accessories are very important.  I personally like to either add a statement necklace or earrings, but not usually both.

Next up, my "fall" outfit.  I got this utility vest from Gap this past spring and am so glad I got it when I did.  I've received so many compliments on this vest and was bummed for my friends when it sold out fast!  I am beyond excited to start wearing it again this fall... it's definitely a favorite in my closet!  Add some distressed jeans and my booties, and I will definitely be ready for pumpkins, falling leaves, and everything related to fall!  I have a feeling I will be wearing this combination a lot come the end of September and October, when I am ready for fall but the temperatures say otherwise.

  2. Cute, cute, cute! I really need a vest. I never got one which was probably for the best it is WAY too hot for anything like that around here in the spring/summer.

  3. I love my striped shirt which is similar to your's! Never thought to whip the black maxi out with it! I need to also get a green utility jacket for the fall. So cute. I love your style posts. I feel like we have many similiar pieces in our closets so it's fun to see new & fresh ways to wear them. Plus, what how a 'real' person wears them!

  7. I love these outfits!! That shirt so easily transitions from summer to fall and pairs perfectly with the skirt and the vest. I am always loving when people have those vests but I have yet to get one for myself. I may need to change that this fall!

  8. Super cute! I cannot say no to a stripe either. Or a utility vest, I get so much wear out of mine, its the perfect pieces to throw on.

  11. I almost wore a similar army green vest with my striped look, but I went for a denim vest instead. Love the looks!

  12. I love this now & later approach - stripes are SO versatile, clearly. And I don't want to wish summer away, but I kind of can't wait to comfortably wear my stripes with jeans again... the distressed pair you have here, and the additions of the vest and the great boots, make such a simple but chic combination. Love it! Thanks for joining in :)
