There is something about those blue and white sailor stripes that sucks me in every time. Whether it’s outdoor pillows, drapes for the little man’s room, or an awesome top, I can almost never resist this purchase. (Right now I am totally crushing on these Kate Spade heels). One piece that has been a staple in my wardrobe for years is this top from Banana Republic. With the boat neck and the curved front and back, it lends a little fun to an otherwise preppy top. Today I am wearing it with boots because the weather has taken on a fall tone, but my favorite style is with white shorts and boats shoes. Either way, the little man and I are ready for a ride on the scooter, a backyard bbq, or story time on the sofa.
