Summer Stripes

This summer I have fully jumped on the stripes bandwagon...I love to wear stripes! Today I threw on this fun stripey shirt I picked up at J Crew Factory a few months back for a whopping $15. Cute stripes on the cheap? Sign me up!

Here's what I wore today:

What I Wore Today-7/19/11

And here are a few pictures to piece together to see it in real life:

Striped Dolman Sleeve Tee-J Crew Factory
Artist Crop Jeans-American Eagle
Steve Madden "Cabezza"
Necklace-Stella & Dot
Earrings-Forever 21
Bracelets-Anthropologie (red) and Forever 21 (turquoise)

Maybe I'll actually remember to take a full length picture of my outfit tomorrow...till then the self portrait is as good as it gets! =)

We were sad to say goodbye to our company this back to reality (and my large pile of laundry). Tomorrow morning I'm planning on getting up early to attempt to run again after taking a few weeks off to let my back heal. I did something to hurt it while working out and knew I'd have to give it a few weeks to heal, but I'm going a little crazy! Running is my stress reliever so taking a few weeks off is hard to do. I will say, however, not having to get up at the crack of dawn to run has been nice these past few weeks! =) I'm crossing my fingers it feels good and it's all better when I hit the treadmill in the morning.

Have a great Wednesday!!!


  1. I love turquoise and red together...this looks awesome!

  2. Cute! I just picked up my first striped top from J.Crew... I was slow to jump on that bandwagon too.

  3. Love your outfit. I've had my eye on that Stella & Dot necklace for a few weeks now. How do you like it? Not to ask a silly question, but is it "heavy" feeling? I love long necklaces, but sometimes the weight of them is too much on my neck.

  4. I could NOT love this outfit more Jenni!! I want a red stripe - that's the only one I lack in my stripes wardrobe-haha.

  5. Thanks!!!

    Ginastorm--I don't think the necklace is that heavy at all, but that's just because I'm used to wearing necklaces all the time! It has a little weight to it but I wouldn't let that stop you from trying it out!

  6. love the red with the turquoise - what a fantastic color combo!

  7. love that outfit jenni! red and turquoise is a great color combination!

  8. I really love the combo of turquoise and red, too, Jenni! So fresh and summery! And I must tell you how much I'm lusting after the Blazing Blouse, after seeing it on you and JG. You know, I paged past it everytime I saw it on Anthro's sale page, and now I'm regretting not getting it!

  9. Perfect summer outfit!!!! I need to get back into running too. I feel so much better when I get a good run in.

  10. I love the color combo and that shirt was a total steal! I hope you dig out from the laundry! Those sandals are darling and such a great Summer shoe!

  11. Hi Jenni - I'm so sorry, I never got your email, I even checked my "junk" folder in case it got filtered for some reason...thanks for thinking of me and sorry I have been MIA! All is well, I am just completely exhausted and trying to keep my two oldest from killing each other off this Summer - not sure what is up with their constant fighting??!!! Anyway, I know I keep saying this, but I do mean to update the blog - maybe over the weekend...

    LOVE your cute stripes and those beads together -totally adorable. You are rocking the cute summer looks!

  12. Hello Jenni,
    I'm a newbie to your blog and just love all of your OOTD, especially your use of Stella & Dot jewelry. Are you a stylist by any chance? The turquoise la coco is one of my summer faves also. Happy Summer!

  13. Jamie-You should call Anthro CS and see if there are any left! You never know!

    Lisa--I hear ya! My week is not complete without at least three runs!

    Tricia--STill digging! =)

    Jan--YAY! So fun to hear from you! I figured everything was just fine but wanted to be sure! I was DEAD TIRED with my 3rd pregnancy so I can totally relate. It was way worse than the first two! Hope your kiddos give you a break...I battle the same issues with mine too! We only have 3 1 /2 weeks left of summer so it wn't be long before they're all back at school now! Thanks for the saying hi!

    Elaine--Nice to meet you!! Thanks for stopping by and the the nice compliments! I love Stella & Dot jewelry but am not a stylist. I just don't have the time to do something like that right now, but it could be fun! FOr now I just buy the pretty jewelry! =)

  14. nice casual fun look! jsut cant go wrong with stripes and turquoise!!

  15. Jenni,
    Quick question on the Boden top you have on in today's post (7/22). What size did you order? I love their tops, but not sure how their sizing fits.

  16. Mindie--I ordered the US size 4 and it fit perfectly! I am usually an XS or Small in Anthro tops, for reference. Hope that helps! Sorry it took me so long to see your post!
