Front Porch Sitting In Stripes

Blue and white as a color combination is slowly taking over my life. My apartment bedroom was blue and white, I am currently re-doing my bedroom at home to be blue and white, and it seems like all of the cute new summer pieces I've purchased are also blue and white. Fortunately it's a classic color combination that I don't see going out of style anytime soon and I plan to fully embrace that! Another trend I plan to embrace? All things off the shoulder. This top brings those two details together perfectly with the addition of stripes and bows at the sleeves that has quickly made it a favorite in my summer rotation. 

I've worn it with white shorts and more recently with white jeans and both looks are equally as cute. Speaking of white jeans  these are my absolute favorite and under $60. I purchased them last year around the time of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and are a stylish skinny style while still having plenty of stretch. I used to *hate* jeans and have since outgrown that thanks to  pairs of jeans like this. This fall when I need to purchase a new pair I'll be hunting for this exact pair in a nice dark denim. 

As I was packing for a trip to visit my best friend to celebrate her 21st birthday this weekend (I couldn't be more excited) I knew instantly that this outfit would be joining me on my excursion as it would work perfectly during the day  (that is if it isn't sweltering, if it is I'll trade the jeans for some shorts) or at night for a festive dinner to celebrate the occasion.

Also I think Nell just promoted herself to Creative Director from Photographer with how great these pictures turned out. Believe me, I wasn't the easiest model complaining about how hot it was outside and how much I was sweating yet she still managed to get some great shots. See this funny video we did our sophomore year and follow her on Pinterest here!

I'd love to know what y'all will be up to this weekend! Happy happy Friday!
