seeing stripes


How are people feeling about this new trend? I like it , I do. And alot of stripes are even turning up in my work lately. But every time I buy a striped top- I wear it once and then it seems to get pushed into the depths of my closet. I kind of like these choices those. They would look great for a grocery run, of just a walk in the park. With some great denim and maybe a metallic belt at or around the waist to spice things up, I think I could get down with a striped shirt again.... You think?

I love striped shirts! This is the one item of clothing that you can pair with plain jeans and still looked immediately polished and put together.

I just wore my Proenza Schouler for Target striped tee yesterday and had lament the fact that it's probably coming to the end of its wear-ability :(

I love stripes and I'm getting to scoop up some stripey sweaters and tees at my favorite pricey boutique (everything just went on sale for 60% off!) Wish I were here to enter your give-away but I will be in transit within minutes. Oh well...

Ok, I'm back to enter the give-away (and think more about stripes). Los Angeles dates would be perfect.
Thanks Dallas!

I seem to have a thing for striped shirts - I just checked my closet and I swear I've got at least 9... I love how you can just throw them on with jeans.. makes me feel like I'm dressing like a French woman... :)

JCrew's belts have been a "trend" for some time. I think they may turn into a staple. And what about stripes? A little nautical, don't you say? I hope nautical comes back {I love nautical}.
