A polished casual look with a striped top

56 total views

A breezy, lightweight print top is one of my go-to pieces during warmer months to make a simple outfit pop. Here’s a polished casual “going out” look that’s cool but covered.

A polished casual striped top outfit

This lightweight band collar shirt is available in a BUNCH of colors and prints! I decided to go with these colorful stripes, and make it the centerpiece of the outfit. (Similar style in Plus.) I’m short (5’1″) and it’s more tunic-length on me, so I styled with a pair of slim-leg ivory jeans. (Similar here in white, and a Plus option.)

I like to wear a shorter necklace to fill in a v-neck, and this pendant necklace coordinates nicely! This bag is also one of my go-to’s in the warmer months for going-out outfits. It adds visual interest without competing with the rest of the pieces.

A neutral strappy sandal can dress up or down. These are from ECCO, so they’re quite comfortable. The heel is 2″, which is my max these days.

As you can see from the pieces I’ve included in this look, Nordstrom carries a wide range of brands and styles. And they’re always my first stop when I’m looking for something specific. Shipping and returns are free, and many items can be ordered online for pick up in your local store.
