Current Obsession: Sailor Stripes

Technically, this isn’t just a current obsession since I always love a good Breton top, but  feverishly wishing for Spring while acknowledging that it’s only 33 degrees necessitates compromise. I appreciate the way stripe-y boatneck tops feel carefree and preppy (like Spring) and can still serve as a great layering piece under three sweaters and a coat when Winter refuses to exit stage left.

It’s not a new trend by any means:


Mlle. Chanel wore them, Jean-Paul has always loved them, and I wear mine regularly*. It’s one of those things you can throw on and it always feels right. How do you wear your stripes?

*Did you see how I threw myself in there with Coco Chanel and Jean-Paul Gaultier? Ahahahaha! *wipes tears* That was a good one.

    I love stripes! Found a shirt with pink breton stripes at Old Navy, it was awesome. Sadly, I didn’t try it on and it fit kinda awkwardly… 🙁

      Sigh. That’s the thing about Old Navy–the ideas are cute, but the execution can be an issue.
