The Perfect Striped Tank

What I'm wearing:
*Theory "Lorrie" Striped Silk Tank
*Silence & Noice Dolman Sleeve Cardigan in Yellow (similar here)
*J.Brand Cropped Skinny Jeans (similar here)
*Tory Burch "Reva" Flat in Black Patent/Black Buckle
*Foley & Corinna Mini City Tote in Black
*anthropologie "Whispering Breeze" Scarf in Turquoise (similar here)
*Forever 21 Reading Glasses Necklace

Something that I have been on the look out for is the perfect striped tank. I love stripes, and I had so many potential outfit ideas in my head that required this elusive tank. Finally this past weekend, I found the perfect tank for me at Theory. I love the way it drapes, the size of the stripes, and the light silk fabric that it's made of. I can't wait to wear the heck out of this tank this summer.

This simple outfit was worn to a girlfriend's birthday brunch (check out her blog about being vegan in NYC here). Nothing quite like Sunday funday! It's no secret that brunch (especially boozy brunch) is my favorite meal ever. I've been fighting a nasty cold all week (sorry, co-workers that you have to deal with my hacking cough and man voice) but there was no way I'd miss brunch.

Tory Burch flats had been a staple in my college wardrobe, but I hadn't replaced my worn out pairs from a few years ago. But I always loved them, so when I needed to overhaul my flats collection, I knew that I could always go for the Reva. These are different from the black leather/gold medallion pairs that I used to own, but I really love the patent. These will always remain classic to me! Plus, I feel super preppy wearing them, always a good thing.


  1. I love the color combination and your patent revas!

  2. That is a great tank. Now I want a striped silk tank. Preferably yours.

  3. I was totally coveting the Tory Burch Revas last spring/summer. I never got the chance to go try them on and still don't have a pair. This reminds me I need to check them out!

  5. This whole outfit is a huge "like" from me! I love the more subtle medallion on these Revas! And I totally regret not getting that bag when it was being sold.
