Stripe Crazy

stripe love crazy quote


If you have been reading this blog, you are probably aware that I have a thing for stripes. Thin stripes, wide stripes, vertical stripes, horizontal stripes, diagonal stripes...I could go on if I could think of more types of stripes. :) Recently I have been into what I like to called the "kicked up stripe" aka the chevron, however, stripes are a staple in my wardrobe - and in my house and in my blog...

I once became obsessed with having navy and white striped bedding that I searched high and dry for anything remotely similar. I finally found striped sheets and had to have them sewn into a duvet cover to feed my obsession. I also had approximately 10 of my family members & friends actively searching for a black and white striped maxi last year - of course they are pretty much everywhere now (I love this one sooo much).

Even though stripes are a pattern, they are so clean looking that you can mix them up with other patterns really easily. I love wearing a striped sweater with a gingham or plaid button up shirt underneath. It sounds crazy, but it really works. I did it today, in fact!

I also love wearing stripes under sheer or loose-weave tops. You get a faint peak of pattern without being too pattern crazed. It's fun and different.

Here are my latest striped obsessions...I am hoping to keep selling more necklaces so I can buy some of them!!


**After writing the word "stripe" multiple times, it now looks really weird to me. Does that ever happen to you when you say/write a word too much?? Strange. Anyway, here you go: My Striped Loves...
