Monday Blues

I'm wearing two of my favorite things today: stripes and comfortable denim! These Banana Republic boyfriend jeans are so butter soft, I could probably sleep in them. They've got just the right amount of slouch, and look fantastic with both heels and Converse. My chunky striped linen vee sweater has got a good amount of weight to it, making it perfect for those crisp spring mornings and late evenings. 

If you have ever wanted to wear boyfriend jeans, but have felt intimated by their more relaxed cut, I have a tip for you: roll the hem of your jeans to just above your ankle. By revealing the narrowest part of your leg, you are balancing out your silhouette - making your outfit both comfortable and flattering. 

As promised, I'm wearing my paisley print bandana again for spring; they can be such a fun way to mix prints! I don't think I would have ever thought to mix stripes and paisley, but it works really well. The key to mixing patterns is to keep at least one of the colors consistent, which helps the eye focus on the cohesion of color, instead of the mismatching prints. 

The v-neck of my Banana Republic chunky sweater also helps balance out my outfit - a chunky sweater with boyfriend jeans could easily feel overwhelming in the amount of fabric, but the neckline helps to balance everything out. 

And so, my love affair with classic wardrobe pieces continues; easily the best case of Monday Blues ever. 
Happy Monday everyone!
