Two-styles Tuesday: the striped cami

OK, so I totally just made up the theme "Two-styles Tuesday" right this second. I take a handful of blog outfit photos over the weekend, with no particular plan on which day I want each outfit to go live on the blog. More often than not, I end up staring at all of my outfit photos for a few minutes debating on a posting order. If I can tie it to some kind of theme, it makes the process a lot easier. Hence, Two-styles Tuesday was born! I could have just called it Remix Tuesday, but alliteration always wins in my book!

Sunnies: Ray Ban (other colors here) | Necklaces: CS Gems (c/o) (tassel option here - use code CARYLEE15 for 15% off!) | Bag: Longchamp | Cami: Express (other colors/patterns here) (alternate options herehere and here) | Bracelets: JCrew, Nadri | Shorts: American Eagle (similar here) | Sandals: Sam Edelman

You know I love remixing (so long as it's not related to a capsule of some sort…) and this cami is a great piece to do just that. If it's not raining here, it's a thousand degrees with one million percent humidity, so camis and shorts are basically a necessity. Year after year I turn to American Eagle to build my shorts collection. The fit is great for my body type, and they're just really soft and comfortable. I realized I never showcased these lunchtime purchased espadrilles on the blog yet, and luckily, they finished off this summertime look quite nicely.

And here are the two looks featuring this cami side by side. I was worried that this cami wasn't going to be as versatile as some of my other striped tops I have in my wardrobe since the stripes are so close together, but from a distance, they kind of disappear anyway so it still pairs nicely with many things. I love that I'm able to create two pretty different looks from the same piece. I could take it one step dressier tucked into my cobalt blue pencil skirt with my white pumps. I will have to do that next!

Hello Monday!

Hello Monday! When I get my hair cut, *I* can tell I've gotten 3" cut off, but it still generally looks the same to everyone else! That's how I feel about the new linkup! Outside of the cute little button, things aren't extraordinarily different around here. I wanted to pick a name for the linkup that was simple but still broad enough to capture any and all topics that you all choose to link up! I'm excited (and thankful) to have Jenna as my co-host! Please be sure to visit her page and say hello!

Sunnies: Ray Ban (other colors here) | Earrings: Kate SpadeNecklace: Express (option) | Bag: Kate Spade (option) | Top: Express | Bracelet: Mindy Mae's Market (exact) | Jeans: Express | Shoes: Kate Spade (budget option)

I can't think of a better way to start fresh than by pairing neons with a classic white button up. These heels and this bag are head-turners on their own so they're basically a foolproof combination. Plus, I just got this new tassel bracelet and I really just wanted to wear it. :)

This weekend was pretty low key, which are the best in my opinion. We watched Trainwreck on Saturday at one of those dine-in movie theaters. It was definitely more of a chick flick than I initially thought it would be. I'm not complaining, and the husband didn't seem to mind either, but I feel like I cried a lot for a comedy! That's not saying much because I cry watching Disney movies

This week is going to be another crazy one for me! I'm taking a day trip tomorrow for work to Sioux Falls, SD because, I mean, doesn't *every*one take day trips to South Dakota? It will be a long day, but at least I don't have to pack for it! #glasshalffull Have a great week!

I'm keeping this short and sweet today! No commentary between photos, only because I've been traveling the last couple of days for work, and I'm a bit behind on life and sleep! But I wanted to leave these outfit selfies with you to formally kick off the weekend. Plus, if I don't share these with you, it's like I never wore them!
