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.
