stars x stripes

Something you may not know is that I have a love for all things striped, particularly in black and white. That’s why these striped pants caught my eye, in addition to the fact that I am also loving anything cropped and/or high waisted right now. Plus, they are under $40! I paired them with these star espadrilles because mixing the two patterns made it a fun, casual look. These pants can easily be worn into fall by pairing them with a cropped chunky knit and sneakers. They could also work in the office by pairing with a white button down top and heels.

I purchased these pants in store at my local Zara, but I linked a few similar options at the bottom of the post. Which brings me to another point. I am a big believer in quality over quantity (I shared that here) and investing in good, quality pieces that will get a ton of wear. I’m not one to jump on the latest trend, unless it fits my personal style, and it’s probably becoming apparent that I keep my closet pretty minimal. However, if there’s a fun style I want to try or there’s a trend I’m into, ASOS and Zara are my go to’s! It’s fun to mix things up sometimes but I don’t like to spend a lot on pieces that I know I won’t wear super frequently.
