My wardrobe is experiencing a surge in stripes as of late and I’m not complaining for a second. When I’m online shopping, it’s like my eyes ONLY see stripes and I buy all of them. I kid you not, these are all purchases I’ve made within the past month or so. It’s becoming a problem. But they’re so classic and I can wear them forever and ever, right? That’s my line of thinking anyway. Also, tax returns and stuff.

Anyways, I’ve always been partial to stripes and tend to prefer the Breton or sailor variety. I’m also constantly trying to replicate this outfit at least once a week, if not more. In that stripe pile above are some of the new wardrobe additions (TAX RETURNS, I SAID). Oh but the Skargorn. You HAVE TO get the Skargorn. Also, it’s on sale right now + 20% off the sale price. Almost makes me wish I didn’t pay FULL PRICE FOR IT, SHOOT. Some of the stripes I recently bought, plus a few more that I still need:[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3500″]

Ideal Spring Outfit #2: Denim, Denim, and Stripes

For my second installment of Ideal Spring Outfits, I took this entire look straight from the Madewell website because I want every component of it!

The denim-on-denim trend is making a strong comeback this spring and therefore, I love this boyshirt and shorts combo.  The striped cardigan is just an added bonus!  The stripe has a very breton vibe and you know how much I love a good breton stripe.

I cannot forget to mention the side braid that the model is sporting.  MAJOR!  The side braid made a HUGE comeback on the SS 10 runways and I can’t wait to replicate this messy, yet totally simple hair style.
