Spring Stripes in Savannah

Happy Tuesday, friends! Today I’m sharing an outfit from our Savannah trip last weekend. Stripes are having a moment this spring, and I’m having a hard time resisting the call.

This crisp blue-and-white striped cotton poplin top with its subtle ruffle detail and keyhole back with tie closure was begging to come home with me when I saw it at J.Crew last week.

In fact, I was so eager to make it mine that I didn’t even bother trying it on in the store, so I didn’t find out until I got home that it’s a little snug through the chest area. I think it would be fantastic on someone who is slightly smaller up top. For size reference, I’m wearing the 6.


I really like the slightly shorter length of this top, and the tie in the back is another cute detail.

It was my natural inclination to pair this top with white jeans, but when I saw it on the bed next to my new pink skinnies, I loved the combination.

I have the size 29 (I wear 28 in some brands and 29 in others) and they’re comfortable, but they feel like they may stretch out. Still, I find that I prefer to size up in my white and lighter colored jeans because they aren’t as forgiving as typical bluejeans, and when they’re snug, they sometimes don’t look very good in the thigh area.

By the way, Bloomingdale’s is having a Friends & Family Sale right now, and most of their premium denim is 25% off!

SALE ALERT >> Take 25% off a great selection of items at Bloomingdale’s. Plus Lloyalists get a $25 reward card for every $100 you spend on almost everything else! 

I kept my jewelry simple and wore these pearl drop earrings and my silver link bracelet.

I almost wore flat sandals, but then I decided to go with these espadrille wedges. I thought the color worked in nicely with the colors of this outfit, and the added height is always nice.

This outfit would be perfect for a casual Easter gathering or another spring event that doesn’t require you to be too fancy. I would also wear this out to lunch or to have coffee with a friend. I can always swap out the heels for flats if I’m going somewhere that requires a lot of walking.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!
