i love stripes! springtime, daytime, nighttime- all the time! without a doubt my favorite thing!

stripes are my uniform, my inspiration, the subject of my very first post (see here and here)- it’s kind of what i’m all about! thin or wide, i love them anytime! layered under or over, tucked in or out, cotton or cashmere- i’m in love with stripes!

stripes are great with everything and anything- cool with denim, casual with chinos, comfortable with leggings, glamorous with pearls, classic with a navy blazer- chicness all the time!

as you are planning your spring wardrobe, the best stripes- altuzarra for jcrew, saint james, armor lux, club monac0– fall in love with stripes! love them like i do!
