Prison Stripe Chic


Jeans: Rag and Bone
Top: Forever  21

I bought this top sort of on accident. See, I set out to find a cheap black and white striped shirt for my "parole party" (I am starting a new job next week and leaving my current department, which we often refer to as a prison.)So, a few of us went out last weekend and I wanted to wear prison stripes as a joke. Well, I found this top from Forever 21 for really cheap, like maybe $12. What I bought as a joke ended up being one of my favorite purchases of late. Its a cute peplum style that feels casual and easy, I can dress this up or down depending on the occasion. It is super comfortable and well, who doesn't love black and white stripes? 

I paired it with this statement necklace I got from Jeweliq, which is a really cool site with lots of cheapy fun, costume jewelery. You should really check it out if you haven't already. All the necklaces are only like $25! Not too shabby if you ask me!

That's all I've got for you for today. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and enjoyed great weather like I did! I finally got to dust off the bike and take it for a breezy, evening ride. Nothing better than a warm weather night!
