I literally spent all of yesterday packing up my room, coated with a layer or two of ancient textbook dust. The process made me realize just how sentimental I am. I could hardly bear to throw away old ticket stubs, being convinced that I will one day use them for a DIY project, and I found myself forced to reminisce on simpler times. By the end of several hours of work, it was clear that I needed to get out of the house and off Memory Lane, so here’s what I wore to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants–a striped ensemble devoid of nostalgia–at least, for now! Recently I have found myself drawn to pairing stripes with stripes, united by a common color (like navy blue) and toned down with a neutral blazer and an understated beauty regimen.
