I also thought it might be fun to do some fashion posts throughout the week.
Today’s print is stripes. I do like a stripe over here and and a stripe over there. (To quote Playschool.)
I could see myself wearing this first outfit as I strolled along a beach boardwalk. It’s Autumn here in Australia. This set is bright and cheerful, yet also functional. It’s got the marine feeling with the stripes and brilliant blues, a colour that is very much in vogue right now.
If I were still teaching, I could see myself standing in front of a classroom in this next outfit. Since I’m not, I could also see myself trotting off to a picnic with the shady pink hat that matches the lovely pink stripe detail on the skirt. I love prettiness, and pink always gives that pretty feeling.
For a more preppy look, a stretchy striped jacket teamed with a stylish pair of brown boots would be a comfortable and stylish option. I’m loving wearing coral right now, not altogether pink, and not altogether orange, but certainly altogether chic. A pretty little clip to tuck the hair back and an infinity scarf finishes the look. (I do not personally own an infinity scarf yet. But I do so want to.)
I think the most classic striped combination is black and white. You don’t need to look like a zebra at all, although zebra’s are 100% cool. I love the chevron skirt on this little number. The shoes are also a bold option and absolutely swoon worthy. Every woman’s dream really. There are so many combinations of black and white, thank you Chanel for bringing the black and white stripe to our attention! It’s a truly enduring print.
