The Summer Staples: Bandanas & Stripes
Darby and I are super into the idea of pairing a striped top with a bandana lately because it’s so summery and chic. Striped tops are such classic pieces to have in your wardrobe because they can be dressed up or dressed down. Versatility is important, you know?
Bandanas are more of a Southern staple, so, of course, they’re something we hold near and dear to our hearts. But, if you’re not into your typical bright red bandana style, you don’t have to shop ones with a paisley print. You’ll see in my OOTD below that there are cute scarfs with fun prints that give the same effect without being a complete southern classic, if you know what I mean.
But, then again, you'll see Darby demonstrate that just because you're wearing a bandana doesn't mean you have to look like you're going to a honky tonk. It can be totally reinvented and modern when styled just the right way.

Ugh, are you loving this outfit for summer as much as we are?
You're going to be absolutely adorable in an outfit like this.
