MCLV Style: Nautical

Stripes are a year-around staple for me but I especially love them during the Spring and Summer – It’s just such a timeless trend that breaking out my lightweight navy and white stripes for the first time each season is something to look forward to.

Even in breezy Berkeley!

I picked up this fabulous striped top during a recent trip to FashionElles and it’s swiftly becoming a favorite – I love that it’s a classic, basic tee but with a fun embellished collar that makes it interesting. Nautical chic!

Do you have a favorite Summer style or trend that you look forward to each season?
