Nautical Stripes and a Cargo Vest

Quick post today to share with you one of my favorite go-to outfit formulas:

Striped tee + olive cargo vest + jeans + ankle boots = perfect for just about any casual occasion!

You can use this same formula with just about any colored stripes, and you can play around with different accessories and shoes to mix it up. Here’s what I pulled together in about 3 minutes flat on a morning last week when I was running late and didn’t have time to think about what to wear to school.

Striped tees and cargo vests — either together or separate — are game-changers in terms of being able to amp up an otherwise ordinary outfit.

This Target tee is SO incredibly soft! I have it in navy and white (shown here) and also white with black stripes. The vest is also from Target and the material drapes so well. Plus, it’s lightweight enough to layer comfortably. I’ve gotten a ton of use out of each piece, and I’m sure they’ll be go-to staples in my closet for a long time to come.
