Denim & Stripes

Happy Monday!

How was everyone's weekend? I just got back last night after a weekend away visiting family in Virginia Beach (and escaping the Philly papal madness). This past weekend was the Neptune Festival in VA Beach where sandcastle artists come from all over the world to compete. Unfortunately, due to the rain/wind storm, most of the festivities were canceled (live music, beach vendors, fireworks, etc.), but the sandcastle competition still went on (don't worry, they were under a large tent!). The artists are AMAZING, to say the least. 

I wore this denim and stripes outfit on Saturday. During the day, we were out and about shopping and at the ocean front sandcastle competition. This was the perfect outfit choice- stylish and practical. I highly recommend this LOFT striped tee! Stripes are a hot trend this fall, and this tee is comfy and perfect for layering. It's also 40% off, making it only $15.90! I layered the tee with my denim vest from LOFT Outlet. I had trouble finding something similar, but I really like these two- LOFT and Target

What do you all think of metallic shoes? Metallic sneakers are one of the 2015 shoe trends. I wasn't sure about them until I saw these gold slip on sneaks (similar here and on sale!) at the Nine West Outlet. They are comfortable (perfect for a shopping trip) and definitely add a fun flare to any outfit.

I took this outfit from day to night by pairing it with leopard wedges and a dressier purse. Pattern mixing is a little out of my comfort zone, but I love how this outfit came together. It was a great choice for our seafood dinner at a lively ocean front restaurant called "Mahi Mah's." 

So, what do you think about these trends- denim on denim, metallic sneakers, pattern mixing, etc.?! Would love to hear your thoughts!

Have a good week and thanks for reading!
