I Heart Stripes

Is it just me, or are we all wearing way more stripes this season??
I don't know and I don't care because...
I love them!
This little green stripe sweater is really supposed to be a pair of jeans that green color.
I have been on the hunt for about 2 months now.
  It's not that I can't find any green skinnies,
 it is that I can't find any that fit.
Seriously designer people....
how skinny do you think people's calves are?
If I can get them not squeezing my calves,
 then the waist is swallowing me.
Anyone have a pair they love and can recommend??
I decided my bright green needed a little bright orange to go with it.
Remember this necklace that I wore as a bracelet?

Are you wearing more stripes than you usually do ?

Cute! I seriously try to avoid all skinny jeans because I hate trying them on. They're like a wiener casing, and I am not a wiener.

Heh heh. Ashley said wiener.

You look great. Stripes have been in my wardrobe every day lately. I can't stop wearing it.

I've recently been drooling over all of Gap's cute striped tops! I love them! And the only way to can top stripes right now is to add bright colors, which means this outfit is a TOTAL WIN!

I love the green, navy and orange combo-very preppy chic! Sorry- no good recommendations on skinnies- I have to jump around to put mine on! ;)

I am about to have to put myself on a stripe time-out. ;) Didn't LOFT have green skinnies? I like their skinny crops? I got a red pair, but I swear I thought they had green. I roll mine down and they make perfect ankle length skinnies... although you look a bit taller, so that might now work.

Rebecca said...

I kind of have scrawny calves, so I feel like my skinnies are never skinny enough at the bottom.

These are great colors for stripes! I'm going to be looking out for neon stripes now. I feel your pain, I can never find denim in fun colors that fits, either.

In the past month I've worn all three of my striped pieces at least three times each... newly obsessed!

I have a closet full of stripes but still can't resist adding more!

Skinny jeans are a nightmare to fit. Mine are always too tight in the thighs and gaping at the waist, but then again I have that issue with all pants. You might try getting a straight leg or slightly flared pair that fit and taking them in to be skinny, or finding a tailor to do it for you.

Love it! I've been looking for green jeans too! Hey, I have that necklace too!

Very pretty. I didn't even realize there were stripes until you pointed them out. The top just looked good.

There are a LOT of stripes out for spring, but I'm ok with it as I LOVE stripes on everything! Your sweater is no exception, I love the colors and the nautical nod it has. The orange necklace is a great pop of color to it.

Kristin said...

You and me both! Love the sweater!

Annie said...
