Go-To Stripes + Hello Monday Linkup

I wore this on Saturday to meet up with Caryl to pass along her birthday present and eat BBQ.  I originally had a different outfit on for the day, and then got food on my favorite white T-shirt and had to hastily change.  An easy striped tee seems to be my go-to when I'm in a hurry... or just when I'm hanging out with Caryl evidently.

Olive cutout sandals [exactsimilar steal]  //  Loft striped tee [optionlong sleeve option]  //  Medium wash skinny jeans [exactsimilar without front pockets]  //  Kendra Scott Rayne necklace [exact]  //  Kendra Scott Angela bracelet [exact]  //  Kendra Scott nail laquer in 'Lapis' [exact]  //  Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel (borrowed from Caryl) [exact]

I dressed up my tee and jeans a little with accessories and these fun sandals, which are so crazy comfortable.  I am SO tempted by the wine color they also come in.  The weather has me in denial that Fall is coming (uh hello 90° when we were shooting this outfit) so buying transitional sandals sound much better than booties right now.  (Speaking of transitional sandals, these will be perfect for Fall too!)

Friday, I also picked up my very first 'Rayne' necklace by Kendra Scott and some of the new nail lacquer.  The Rayne is such a classically Kendra piece, and it comes in SO many colors, but I find I wear my neutral accessories the most.  So, I went with the banded agate with antique brass.  Now I've got my eye on this chic cuff, because once I get one piece of a certain Kendra Scott collection, I can't resist adding to the family (...see my Lapis collection or suspended pearl collection...)

Of course I immediately had to update my mani with my Kendra Scott polish acquisitions- I got their top and base coats, and then the gunmetal and lapis colors.  They went on incredibly- one coat felt sufficient, but on principle I used two.  So far it's lasting really well, and the sales associates had all been wearing theirs a week and their manis look superb.  I'm very optimistic, but only time will tell ;)   If it lasts better than my favorite CND Vinylux mani, my wallet may be sad...

I also caved and picked up this delicate little bracelet from Kendra Scott.  I loved the barely gold hue and subtle crystals.  It's also got my favorite adjustable closure.  Speaking of favorites, this sneaky faux t-shirt knot- Caryl taught me is a favorite trick, and while I definitely need a little more practice to master it, I am quite the fan.

But seriously, how gorg are all these colors?  I think my next shades will have to be the rose gold and rose quartz, but the mint is just so good too!  Which would you pick!?
