Current Obsession: Stripes

Image-1

I have been obsessed with stripes for the past few years. So current might not be the most accurate description but it made for a better headline, so what’s  a writer to do? So back to stripes. I love them (see evidence above). I have to be reminded by my boyfriend and friends  to not purchase more striped items. But I’m here in defense of stripes. It’s a classic look that looks stylish without requiring too much effort.

Two dresses, two tank tops, five t-shirts, two sweaters, and a pair of slippers. Oh and after I took this photo, I noticed I forgot to include two other striped sweaters and a blouse I have. Insert wide eyed emoji face here. That makes 15 clothing items plus my slippers.

What can I say? When I like something, I really like it.

Dressed down with jeans, or dressed up with a pencil skirt. When in doubt, go for stripes. Do I sound crazy? Am I obsessed?  Do I need to cool it? Maybe. Possibly and probably. Want further proof, check out the late great Lauren Bacall looking all kinds of good in stripes.

Since I probably won’t be easing up anytime soon, here’s a few more striped items I’m lusting over:

Mens Style Button Up Shirt from J.Crew

Shirt Dress from Banana Republic
