Swooning For Stripes

I'm joining the ladies of The Creative Closet today to talk a little bit about stripes.

I love stripes! They're classic. They bring just enough interest to a piece to catch the eye, without going overboard to leave people thinking "Oh wow... Oh, no!" Just about every jewelry piece I own goes with a striped shirt.



When Stitch Fix sent me this shirt a few weeks ago, it was the only thing I kept from my style box. Because duh, it had stripes. It's flowy and easy to wear. The fabric is super soft. I didn't already own something with this particular cut - it's not just a basic striped t-shirt!

Shirt: Dahlya // Jeans: J Crew // Flats: Vera Wang // Bag: Louis Vuitton // Necklace: Summer Ellis

You know what else is great about a basic striped shirt? You can wear whatever you want with it. Including "statement shoes." I paired my shirt with some bejeweled Vera Wang flats (my wedding shoes, actually!)


When I saw today's prompt was "Swooning for Stripes" I knew I had to get in on the action. Stripes are my jam. You want to know a secret about stripes? I misspelled it every time I wrote it in this post. It's like my fingers don't believe there's a R in there! Stripes are quirky like that.



Do you have your go-to color or pattern that you enjoy wearing?

  3. I love the color of your pedicure (clearly easily distractible). The cut of that top is great. When I tried to organize what little bit of closet space I have I noticed a strong theme......stripes.....like everything but they are just so versatile and classic! I love your fashion posts!

  5. I love that you actually wear your wedding shoes! Stripes are my favorite pattern to wear. Sometimes they're the only pattern I wear (except a little leopard print). They are totally universal and go with everything. I do love a stripes/red combo (either a bag or a red lip or both).
