The Striped Tee and Skinny Jeans Look

Sometimes the best outfits are the simplest ones. The one I’m wearing above was perfect for walking along the gravel roads in the woods of northern Wisconsin, but it will be just at home in the city, too.

It may just be jeans and a striped top, but if you take time to find the jeans that fit you just right, and a tee with stripes that are proportioned just so, it elevates an otherwise ordinary outfit. Here are my go-to skinny jeans (with a mid-rise, huzzah!) and the perfect shirt to wear with them, along with a few accessories to finish off the look.

  • Sailor Striped Boatneck Tee 1 of 6

    The perfect striped tee with a little color banding detail at the wrists and waist. Comes in navy/white, yellow/white, white/red, and white/gray.

  • Gold Rings Necklace 2 of 6
    Gold Rings Necklace
    I either go for really big statement pieces or small, delicate jewelry. The rings on this necklace have special meaning for me.

  • Rose Gold Elephant Necklace 3 of 6

    This necklace is cute, but it's also very dear to me and I wear it often. I wrote about why, here.

  • Skinny Jeans 4 of 6
    Skinny Jeans
    They're back! These were my favorite skinny jeans a couple of years ago because they fit really well and they have a mid-rise. The low-rise version is standard, so I get very excited with they bring this one back. Even if you're skeptical (I don't exactly have a skinny body), try these on!
    Available at Gap for $69.95
  • Sandal Flats 5 of 6
    Sandal Flats
    Not quite sandals, not just plain flats. These will see you through a lot of outfits, and the colorblocked heel is a nice detail.
    Available at Zappos for $85
  • Rose Gold Heart Ring 6 of 6
    Rose Gold Heart Ring
    Yet another sentimental piece for me. This is a sweet little ring though, whether you attach meaning to it or not.
    Available at CatBird NYC for $92
