Two Tone Stripes

Blue and Brown Striped Shirt- Old Navy
Jeans- Divine Rights of Denim
Riding Boots- Payless
Jacket- H&M
Rose Gold Watch- Target
Bracelet- Forever 21
Green Stem Print Bag- Orla Kiely

     There is something about feeling really cute and put together in casual clothes. This outfit was one of those. I didn't do anything particularly special this day except run errands and go pick out our new bed at Ikea, but I felt like I looked pretty pulled together. I love this shirt! It came in a variety of color combos but this is the one I liked the most, and because I am a shopaholic I had to make myself choose only one. I love the contrast of colors! Do you have casual pieces that you feel really good in?

    This bag was my first ever Orla Kiely purchase. When my boyfriend lived in England (2004, I think), one of his roommates worked for Orla. She handed me a little look book and told me I should pick something out. So I got this bag and the matching wallet. Thus started my obsession. I love that Orla Kiely is much more popular and easily accessible now, but there used to be something so special about receiving a new bag at Christmas or for my birthday. Even though this bag is old, cracking in some seams, and the magnet is broken it is still one of my most favorite things I own!
