Lookbook: Stripes and Chanel


I took these photos after watching my 8 month old nephew and let me tell you those under eye bags are from him!  He is adorable but SUPER exhausting and I wasn’t even watching him alone!  My mother in law and my husband were there too!  hahaha!  This is why I don’t have children of my own.  I can work 20 hours a day every day but put a baby in front of me for 2 hours and I feel like I need a 12 hour nap!  Oh and can you tell that I’m not used to being around babies?  He LOVED all my jewelry and thought I was his little entertainment center.  I spent half my time prying my jewelry away from his very tiny but strong fingers.  Lesson learned, no jewelry around babies!
What I’m Wearing
*Top: Zara – OMG, the online
store is finally open!  I got my shirt at the beginning of summer so I
don’t see it on the site but how cute is
this green top
?  Perfect for fall!  So not over stripes (as you
know from yesterday’s post).  Am completely in love with this striped
at Shopbop.  Would look so fabulous with some slim black
trousers, black pumps and lots of fun jewelry.
*Shorts: J Crew – similar
except mine are a wool blend.  I mean does wool shorts even
make sense?  No they don’t but if you were to wear wool shorts, Seattle
would be the place to wear them.  I’ve worn these a bunch this summer
and I’m always the perfect temperature.
*Shoes: Miu Miu – buy them here
or here
in leather.  Loving these
too!  And a look for less here.
*Necklace – Vintage | Bracelets – Bhuddist
beads from Taiwan and J Crew bangles

    I love your outfit- especially those shoes! I know what you mean about kids. My cousin and I have done some babysitting for our aunts before, and while she's wonderful with them (going for a degree in child development now, actually), I never got the hang of it when they were little. It's so much easier now that the youngest is 7 xD

    Totally agree with you Tiffany – babies are cute but not when they're mine! This Zara top looks great on you. I remember pondering over it earlier this summer but deciding against it. Kind of wish I had tried it on!

    I tried on that top and it looked horrid on me, looks so much better on you! And I totally agree, jewelry is a huge hazard in watching kids, what are we going to do ;)?

    Gorgeous outfit! I love the bold stripes paired with the black!

    You still look fabulous, under eye circles or none. It's surprising how strong babies can grip things! Especially hair! Lol good luck 🙂

    Hi Tiffany, your post made me laugh. Yes, babies and jewelery don't mix, but I have to admit that babies are super fun (and of course, super exhausting). I was never a baby person either (as in never held one before my own kids) and now I want a third- crazy huh? Anyways, you look fantastic as always, very colorful and cheery 🙂 Thanks for the post!.

    "I mean does wool shorts even make sense?"
    LOL. I never thought about that but it definitely does not make sense. I have a pair with a thick grosgrain trim around the waist (it's high waisted) that ties into a bow and it's SO cute. I love it! From J.Crew too. You know what? I bet wool shorts would look great with some fun tights for the winter! 🙂

    I'm a pumps kinda girl also, but I absolutely lurrrrve those miu miu sandals! Here's another more affordable option that I'm eyeing: http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/women/sandals/occasion/85836973-salvietti/32

    Tiff.. I Love this blouse so much. Too bad, I can't get it online. 🙁 But I'm so excited that Zara ia available online now. I can quit my whining about not having access to Zara. LOLs.

    I love your recent F21 purchases too. I'm thinking of getting the polka dot top and we can be twinsies. hehehe.

    I've been wearing my bracelets a lot. and everyone loves them. they're so fun! Hope I can get some photos up on the blog this week. I'll let you know for sure.

    xx Love & Aloha

    LOL! I'm exactly the same! When my nephew was about 1 1/2 he was already walking/running. I watched him for about 2-3 hours alone and when his mom finally came home, I took a 4 hour nap. They are incredibly exhausting. I think it's because you have to watch every single thing they do.

    I love the shirt. So summery! I need to check out the zara site! 😀

    LOVE this outfit Tiff! I hear you about babies! Though I'm more ready now for one of my own, I never learn about the long hair and jewelry! I just had a chunk of hair ripped out by a 4 month old, and remember having earrings almost ripped through my ear years ago. eek.
