OhNoes, More Stripes

Cardigan - Rugged Warehouse
Top - Como Petites, thrifted
Jeans - London Jean, thrifted
Shoes - Eject
I promised myself I wouldn't "have" to wear stripes and could wear anything I wanted once stripes week was over. I couldn't help but take some inspiration from the participants last week. This look was inspired by Lorena of Lorena's Everyday Wear. My stripes are black instead of red, but I thrifted this ruffled blouse awhile back and hadn't figured out a good way to style it since it's very gauzy and sleeveless. Don't let that sun fool you, it's still nippy out.

Also I ask that you please ignore the bad hair days that are to come. Growing out a short 'do isn't the most fun or fashionable task.

(Today's "blogger pose" is totally a rip off of the lovely Christine of FutureLint. I always think of her when I wear these wide legged jeans)


  1. That does look like a Christine pose! You have it down pat.

  2. Isn't inspiration the best? I love this look - great pattern mixing, and, yes, cute pose too :)

  3. Oh how I love thee! Amazing. I love Lorena's outfit and this one is just as wonderful!

  4. I definitely get the whole stripe thing. Saturday, I was expecting to do a long day of school work when my in-laws announced they were already on the road to visit us (3 1/2 hour drive). Since we'd been so busy, we hadn't done any cleaning in a while, so it took me about 3 hours to clean, then barely had 1/2 hour to pull myself together. Stripes just seemed like the easy and pulled together option!!

  5. Seems as if we all are still a little stripes-addicted. ;)
    I love the cardigan! The whole outfit is very cute.
    Yes, yes, the hair... :( Same problem here.

  6. This is such a cute outfit! You look so fabulous in wide leg jeans! I love the classic color combo and that printed blouse tucks in beautifully! So chic..I wish I could re-create this look but I have no wide leg jeans :/

  7. Ha! Thanks for the shout-out! I love the wide-legged jeans on you and if you've got more striped outfits as cute as this, I say keep 'em coming!

  8. Lorena's outfit was great and this one is just as great! Love this look.


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
