Stripes

I've learned something about myself.

When I'm shopping, I am drawn to any/everything striped.

I can't help it. I love them. 






Top: Marshall's (2012) {similar}
Skirt: J.Crew Outlet (2011) {similar}
Necklace: Nordstrom (2012) {similar


Have you jumped on the stripes bandwagon? If you haven't, you should. It's a great way to add a little pattern into your wardrobe without being too busy.

    1. They are kind of a taupe-y grey, but more grey than taupe!

  10. I love the outfit! I think it's a good sign that you know what you're attracted to with clothes. Goes to show that you have a style that you're comfortable with! Check out my blog post about finding a "fashion phrase," or learning more about your individual style.

  13. Everything I try on these days seems to have stripes or polka dots on it! I love what you said about adding pattern, without being too busy. Probably why I love both so much :) Love that skirt on you!

  26. So this was awkward. Somehow I posted the following comment on your post about dry shampoo. (which I also enjoy...)

    I totally have jumped on the stripes bandwagon and apparently so has my boyfriend. I showed up to Mother's Day brunch, only to find out that we matched in navy and white striped outfits. We looked very nautical indeed.
    Just bought your blogger nail polish. Excited to try it out!

  46. Hate to be critical, you're super beautiful....but I think you'd do better in a skirt that comes just below the knee or mid knee length...not sure anyone has nice knees, so I'd probably say this omment to anyone, not just you :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love stripes, too :) But I particularly love your necklace in this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That is such a pretty outfit! I am big into stripes lately; I'm wearing a grey and white striped blazer right now :)
