Kelly’s Chic Under $100: Tied Up.

kelly's chic under $100 | all tied up | the stripe blog - affordable fashion

There’s nothing like a lace-up detail for summer. It’s pretty and feminine, but also practical and adjustable. Lately I can’t help but be drawn to all things tied & bowed… from tops and dresses to shorts and shoes.

I’m particularly crushing on this JOA bow back top and these sale Diane Von Furstenburg flats (an easy purchase which will also carry you into fall). The lace up trend is an easy one to do head-to-toe without overdoing it. Try this side-tie top with these striped shorts, some blue suede wrap up sandals, and a statement necklace to top it off. Subtle, but a really sweet detail.
