Stars and Stripes Forever

What I Wore

To The Grocery Store

Top - Forever 21/Pants - Forever 21/Shoes - KMart
Purse - (Thrifted)/Watch - MK/Necklaces - Gifted and Forever 21/Earrings - Forever 21

Striped tops are one of my weaknesses.  I have more than a few striped tops in my closet (and even a few other striped tops that I got at Forever 21) but for some reason when I saw this striped top hanging in the store, I had to go ahead and get it.  I don't know what it is about stripes, but there is definitely something that makes them easy to wear with just about anything.  You want to wear a solid color - of course, put some stripes with it.  You want to wear camouflage - well, yes that works with stripes. You are wanting to wear florals - believe it or not, yes stripes will work then too.  Stripes can give an outfit more interest, can come in different widths, can be horizontal or vertical and simply put, stripes are timeless.  With so many choices of different types of patterns available, I don't only wear stripes, but I love the fact that I can count on stripes to come to my rescue when I want something that will give a little extra kick to an outfit.  Do you have a favorite go-to pattern?


  1. You and my daughter and your stripes!!! She's the same way... she'll try to resist, but something about stripes. For me it's solids. I adore texture, but not patterns. Hmmm, my post is a stark white dress, come to think of it! I like to use my clothes as the backdrop I think!!!
    LOVE your outfit and the mix of leopard and stripes :)
