Striped tops are one of my spring and summer staples. I love wearing them with shorts, pants and skirts. Pretty much any solid bottom! Lately, on chilly Florida beach days and casual weekends, I wear this Saint James striped top.
Affordable Long Sleeve Striped Shirts Under $100
Actually, these photos were taken at sunset after my friend and I had a picnic on the beach! Then I taught him how to take photos and these are the result! Not bad for a first time shooting a DSLR! Featuring items I truly *wear* is one of the reasons I started a blog in the first place! It’s so much more authentic in my opinion! I know this is not always possible to shoot everything I wear “in the wild” but it’s pretty darn close!
Saint James Minquiers Moderne Breton Top (Ecru/Navy) / Denim Cut Off Shorts
Saint James is a truly amazing company for so many reasons. This striped long sleeve shirt was given to me as a Secret Santa gift and I have worn it almost weekly since then. Take a look in my closet and you will see I own way to many striped tops! So, I really wanted a long sleeve striped shirt that will last me years to come and after reading so many reviews, the Saint James shirt was my choice! If these photos don’t convince you, you can see the full review of the shirt here. The shirt does run at a steeper price point and truly worth the investment if it’s in your budget. I did find a super similar Breton striped option from Everlane (under $40).
For those who do not want to spend over $50 on a shirt, I created this post with multiple striped top options under $100. J.Crew Factory is one of the best online retailers to purchase quality items at affordable prices. Right now they have a similar striped long sleeve top in navy, yellow, red and white block stripes under $30!
Sure I do love the high quality of my Saint James striped shirt, yet that does not mean you have to sacrifice quality or style with budget friendly options. Old Navy always has extremely nice basics including stripes shirts and tops. I love this relaxed French terry top that comes in 4 colors and is under $20!
Hope you all are having a great Monday! This past week was a busy one for me. First, I’ve been dog sitting, last week I met a new Instagram friend, Brittany, for lunch (we have mutual friends and she grew up in my hometown!). Second, I celebrated my Birthday Friday and Saturday my family and I went to the beach and a favorite restaurant in Cocoa Beach! Take me back to this sunset night on the beach! Who wants to join?
Lots of Sunshine,
