Stripes and a Must-Read

Nothing says spring quite like stripes, and they seem to be everywhere this season.  I wore this casual outfit last week after I discovered this striped shirt-tail tee in the back of my closet.  This is a super easy look to recreate with any striped tee and jeans, and it is totally on trend right now.

This particular shirt is from Banana Republic last season, but there are tons of similar shirts out right now at all price points.  I'll link to them below.  And don't forget, today is the last day of the Macy's 25% off sale.  You can pick up my Michael Kors crossbody at 25% off with the code FRIENDS, making it under $200! 
So let's switch topics and talk about my latest read - The Luckiest Girl Alive.  I've been wanting to read this for months, and it's finally my turn on the horribly long waiting list at our local library. I've been tearing through it and am about 3/4 of the way done.  So far I'm loving it!  Another dark, twisted novel (it's been compared to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, two of my favs!) with lots of fashion references that make it even better, since the main character lives in New York.  (EDIT - I just found out they are making a movie of The Girl on the Train that comes out in October - cannot wait!)  Have any of you read it yet?  If so, what did you think?
