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.

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.

    I love the outfit! I actually bought that top, but haven’t worn it yet because I wasn’t sure what to pair it with. I love it with grey.

    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.

    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!

    I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone on wearing polka dots and stripes thanks to your style ideas and suggestions! Now that is all I am drawn to when shopping as well! Thanks for sharing it all with the world! You are awesome!

    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!

    Yes! Stripes are everywhere! I went to TJ Maxx yesterday and tried on 3 striped tops. Walked out with a cute one. I love the stripes!

    I love stripes too! In fact, I had to talk myself out of another striped shirt that was strikingly similiar to one I already own!

    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 :)
