Classic Style: Stripes and Denim + Linkup & Announcement

May 2, 2017

I am all about the classics. Stripes and denim paired together make for an easy and put together look. Added a structured tote and matching cognac wedges to finish it off. The point is that outfits don’t have to be complicated to be great. What I love about this particular one is that the classics are well done.

I recently went into Madewell with my mom and walked out with more in one shopping trip than I have in a long time. I had heard tales of how great their denim is, and now I can personally testify. If you are in need of jeans, get yourself to a Madewell now (not a sponsored post). I’m one of those people who has way too many pairs of jeans in my closet that I only half like, and I am on a mission to change it. Anyone else? Tell me I am not the only one. I bought two pairs in one shopping trip which is basically unheard of for me. I have the hardest time finding denim! I’m super excited aboutย a post I have coming up with AG too. Bring on the good denim! All that to say, I tried on every pair of jeans in my closest and took about 5 to the resale shop. This high rise classic wash pair has hardly left my body since it came home with me. They fit true to size.

I feel a bit like a broken record since I have said this on the blog before, but since having Ivy my life and wardrobe has changed a lot as you can imagine. So many wonderful changes, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. In some ways, I have felt a bit lost. As I learn ways to be stylish while also being practical and functional in my role as a mom, I love sharing those pieces with you. This blog continues to evolve with my life as I want to keep the outfits things I really wear. Insert cute t-shirts like this striped tie back one. Love when fun detailing meets wearability. I actually wore this exact outfit to take sweet Ivy girl to the doctor. This tote doubles well as a diaper bag.

    I love your ‘mom style’ Amy Ann! That tie back tee is so cute. It was giving me all the heart eyes when I saw you post it to Instagram. So great that you’ve found a tote that can double as a diaper bag. It would be fun to see a post on bags that do double duty like that for busy mamas with littles.
