Stripes and a Sock Bun






Jeans and Blazer and Bracelet: Forever21 // T-shirt: Old Navy // Loafers:  Asos // Necklace: Poshmark App // Bag: Kate Spade

This outfit incorporates a lot of my favorite things- bright colors in more than one place, stripes, and new and old purchases. This bag was actually the very first designer purse I bought back in college, and it definitely hasn't gotten any love recently, so I decided to bring it back out...especially to tone this outfit down. My newer purchases were my amazing new collar necklace that I found on Poshmark- I have been looking for a silver collar and this one is just so perfect! One other new purchase/discovery is my sock bun! I finally figured out how to master this hairstyle and let's just say it will be my go-to on lazy days! Obsessed! 

Have you tried the sock bun? I am thinking of doing a DIY to share my current obsession!

  1. YSE!! I LOVE the sock bun look- I've been wishing my hair was a bit longer so I can rock this fuller sized bun (that everyone seems to be wearing), but now I know the truth!l haha Great striped blazer, too, it's so J. Crew!!

    1. Thanks pretty! Yes the sock bun definitely requires a little length so it stays nice and smooth! :-) Pretty obsessed and will be doing it much more often on days I need a quick hair style! <3

  4. Love this look, especially the loafers. Nice score on Poshmark! I just got the cutest Aldo sandals on there. Lauralai just did a tutorial on the sock bun on the KC You There blog, I am so glad I learned how to do it in time for summer! xx Erin http://kcyouthere.wordpress.com/

  5. Love so much about this outfit - especially the pink loafers, silver necklace and the sock bun! My hair's still to short to have much success with them, but I can't wait till I can do them :)
