July purchase: Banana Republic non-iron striped shirt

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I went ombré last weekend. Staying true to my natural hair color for the past 10 years, this is kind of a big deal for me. While I fully enjoy my new hairdo at the moment, I am not sure how long I am going to keep up with it.

BR striped shirt

Now, onto my outfits - For the month of July, I bought this classic shirt and these adorable espadrilles. I know I failed the one item per month challenge but they both were on super sale =) The first item was this shirt from Banana Republic. This is my first non-iron shirt and I must say, I am impressed. You just can't go wrong with a classic striped shirt. The beauty of the blue and white combo is that it goes with almost anything. Below are a couple ways to style this shirt but the possibilities are endless. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Click here to read more about my purchases for previous months. Linking up with Manic Monday today!

What I am wearing:
Shirt: BR non-iron shirt - size 0P
Skirt: H&amp (similar, similar)
Shorts: AE midi shorts - size 00
Espadrilles: J.Crew (on super sale!)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade and Forever 21 aviator
Hat: Forever 21 straw hat

That top is such a classic! My boyfriend has a few of BRs non-iron tops, and he just loves them. Such a pretty skirt you have as well!

The ombre turned out really nice, and I love that you showed two completely different ways to style that striped shirt. I bet you will get a lot of use out of it year round by layering with blazers & jackets, too What a great piece!

Love the hair. I need to try something different, but I am too afraid! This shirt is a great basic and goes so well with either the skirt of jean shorts.
