Stylin’ with Stripes

Two of my girlfriends and I had a fun shopping trip up to Portland a few weeks ago. It was great to get away from the babies, admire clothes out of our price range, and be overwhelmed and feel old together in Forever 21. I did find a few good items—a striped shirt and belt at Forever 21.

I’m loving stripes these days! You can’t tell in the pictures, but this top has adorable layered ruffled cap sleeves. I’ve also been loving the use of belts in Nina’s and Ashley’s outfits, so I picked up a thin belt for only $3.50 at Forever 21 (yay for a good deal! Belts like these are $12 at Target!). Rather than buckling it, I tied it in a double knot and liked the kind of rosette affect.
