a. very. madewell. lewk.

I know, I know. More stripes. How utterly groundbreaking for someone who depends upon stripes on the reg?

But actually. For me, this look was new-ish. The addition of my favorite chambray shirt, the best high-waisted jeans on the planet (IMO, anyway) and some playful polka dot sneaks suddenly gave my typical uniform of stripes an anything-but-granola spin. Throw in my go-to bucket bag (still can't believe it's from Old Navy!) and some black-rimmed specs for a v Madewell lewk. No kidding, my stripes and minimalist ring necklace are actually from J.Crew's effortless-cool sister brand, so it's probably not all that shocking that I had a Madewell aesthetic going on. But I digress.

Another thing to note about this #OOTD is how casual and perfect it is for a weekend spent running errands. Thanks to my laidback kicks, it also proved to be ridiculously comfortable. < Praise hands emoji. > As for my black specs, I'm still getting used to them since they're merely an accessory at this point (read: I don't actually need glasses). I find that it takes just the right outfit and vibe to pull 'em off without feeling like I'm trying too hard. If *only* I could be Jenna Lyons' cool spectacle-wearing twin...
