Neutrals








I don't know about you but I love a good striped shirt...if you look in my closet the majority of my tops are probably striped (am I the only one?). A striped shirt is definitely one of my year round staples because their simplicity allows them to be dressed up or down either as a t-shirt, sweater, long sleeved shirt, cardigan...you name it. With summer sadly coming to an end, I figured the best way to transition my wardrobe to cooler weather, while still taking advantage of the warm days,  would be to compromise and wear pieces that work for both (hence the stripes)! 

To me, gray denim seemed like the perfect middle ground between the white pair of jeans you've been wearing all summer and those dark wash skinnies you're going to be wearing come fall. These Zara jeans are so light and after wearing them once they seemed to stretch out to have the perfect fit. I've also been living in this shirt recently. What's easier than a black and white t-shirt? I can't really think of anything. If you follow my Instagram you probably saw that I wore it to a concert recently! For those cooler summer nights, a light sweater is always a good thing to have with you. This flowy cardigan has gotten so much use since I first got it becauseIt's so soft, light, and comfortable! 

I know this necklace isn't something you would picture my wearing but I actually really love it! I has a certain edge to it, but at the same time it is simple and sort of understated! I wanted to contrast the hardness of the necklace with something a bit more feminine so I went for my pinkish/nude ballet flats. A simple clutch (which I found on super sale at Madewell recently) was perfect since I wore this look for a walk in town and a quick coffee date!

The striped shirt, sweater, and necklace are all from new 'Wanderlust' collection from the brand PopBasics! The idea behind the brand is to create a mini collection, in this case, a shirt, sweater, and jewelry, that is only available for a limited time! The mini collections are a mix of classic, basic pieces with some trendy pieces thrown in! Each mini collection contains three different pieces and they're all so unique! My advice to you would be, if you like then get it because the collections sell out and won't be able to purchase it later on!

I had so much fin styling these pieces and I want to give a huge thank you to PopBasic! You can visit their website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

What are your favorite pieces that transition from summer to fall?
