#MondayMotivation - go for stripes, luxe fabrics and metallic heels


A Mediterranean-style blue and white striped shirt is almost like a rant caught on camera - it just never gets old.


Not a fan of the ocean? Stripes doesn't have to mean nautical - you can go for colour, baby thin stripes or bold thick lines.

Get a classic, slightly oversized, striped shirt and wear it loose or tie it at the waist for a more cinched look. 

Cotton blouse, R 529, H&M.

Then pair it with velvet and satin to luxe it up

Velvet and satin might not have always been besties with cotton shirts, but we are tricking them into being friends with the promise of being extremely, ridiculously good-looking...

Or pair it with some satin trousers or a slick bomber jacket:

Complete the look with metallic heels:
