Breton Stripes across the Blogosphere!

Today has been deemed Breton Stripe day by
Liz over on 26 and Counting  
and Linda over on The Auspicious Life.
They even created a website to document everyone's looks! 

You have to go check out all the great ways people have styled their stripes.
Here is my take on the look
I went for a fun and casual look.
It is easy to wear and extremely comfortable.
Check out the shoes.
Waaay out of my comfort zone, but I saw them on sale for $20 so I grabbed them.
BTW, I am having a clothing swap tonight.
I can't wait to see what gems I can find.
I will be sure and document the event and report back.

Now go find your Breton Stripes
and 
come up with a cool look!

Thanks for posting and participating. I like that you cuffed your jacket to show off more of the stripes with the sleeve.
Have fun at your swap!

Breton stripes are one of my huge weaknesses. I own waaaaaay too many of them.

I like that you paired the stripes with greens and browns. It makes the stripes stand out nicely.

What kind of hose are you wearing, your legs look great! I rarely go without them myself (pasty skin, veins, etc.) and I don't like when so-called "fashion experts" tell me I can't wear them!
