Elements of Lauren's Outfit

1. Mango Tank + Striped Sweater

Lauren's bright tank top from American Eagle is perfect for the warming spring weather. The bright coral color contrasts nicely against the more muted neutral colors found throughout the rest of her outfit.

This top pairs perfectly with her open cardigan, too. The striped sweater is both comfy and styish, and the pattern is bold yet classic.

2. Moon Necklace
