Striped tee + jeans: Day to Night

Tuesday, May 7, 2013


For our trip to Chicago last weekend, I wanted to keep my packing to a minimum and so I decided to wear my jeans (J. Crew Factory toothpicks) and striped tee (H&M for $9.95) two ways.

My 'day' outfit included my favorite brown boots, new chambray blazer (thank you 50% off J. Crew Factory sale), and a neutral scarf.

For our night out in downtown Chicago, I switched out my chambray blazer for a black one and added a chunky pearl necklace and nude wedges.

I've been a little blazer-happy lately and I think for good reason: they are the perfect extra layer for spring, dress easily up or down, and come in so many fun colors and fabrics!


  1. Hi Erika! Great illustration on the versatility of the striped top. It's a workhorse in my closet too. Love your night look SO much!

  2. I love this post! I am traveling to Europe this summer and I really want to pack light! Anything versatile is great for me!

  3. Great switch...very chic. J.Crew 50% of sales=the best.
