Chambray & Stripes

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! If you follow along on Instagram or Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7}, you may have caught a few snaps and videos from the My2K Tour we went to Saturday night. My 13 year old self was BEYOND excited to see O-Town. But let’s be honest, my 28 year old self was just as excited! If you are a fan of late 90s and early 2000s music and the tour is coming to your area, I would highly recommend it. Thanks to Richard for coming with me to the concert and putting up with my former {or current? haha} love of boy bands 😉 








Striped Dress: J.Crew | Chambray Top: J.Crew Factory | Tote: Tory Burch | Open Toe Ankle Booties: last season, similar HERE, HERE | Earrings: Nordstrom | Ring: David Yurman | Bracelets: David Yurman HERE, HERE | Hat: Nordstrom | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Lips: #09
Although it was crazy hot this weekend {110 degree heat index on Saturday!} I wanted to share with you another fall transitional look with one of my favorite summer dresses. You may remember THIS striped dress from THIS post a few weeks ago. I’ve been wearing it so much this summer — it’s easy to throw on to run errands and I’ve even worn it for a few “casual Fridays” at work. To make it a little more fall-ready, I added my go-to chambray button-up shirt {last seen HERE} and some fall accessories: my black floppy hat and open toe ankle booties. Although these ankle booties are from last season, they are still very much in style with that block heel. Unfortunately, these particular booties are no long available, but I did link a few similar pairs above. 

Do you have a favorite way to style a summer piece for a more transitional look? I would love to hear in the comments section below. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great start to the week!

P.S. Speaking of fall, I updated some of my favorite fall pieces on the right side bar so be sure to check them out. This hot weather is getting me more and more excited for those cool and crisp temperatures!

  1. Love this whole look from head to toe Rachel! What cute boots and you know how much I love chambray and I think it adds such a fun element when it's tied in the front like you did! Absolutely Darling and a great fall transition ensemble! Have a beautiful Monday!

  2. I love the way that you added the chambray top over that dress to give it a whole other look! I think that I might have to incorporate this into my outfits for our trip to Europe. I loved seeing all of your snaps at the concert, and I was super jealous of you being there!

  3. I loved your snaps girl…totally took my back to my teenage years!
    I have to say…this might be one of my (many) favorite looks that you've put together! I love your hat and booties! I tried a hat like yours on last looked awful on me!
