blouse wears, take two.


Some of you might have seen the first edition of blouse wears - but Jane + I thought it would be fun to start a little project where we share what we wear -- and, how each of wears it. Introducing -- the second edition(!) of blouse wears: the striped shirt.

Stripes! Here at blouse -- stripes are totally in this spring. Jane and I each wore one of our favorite striped shirts (that's right, there's more!) to show how we each wear stripes.


Jane's adorable short sleeved teal + white vintage top got all dressed up with a tight black mini skirt, white tights and black ankle boots. I'm loving the vertical and the horizontal stripes on her blouse.

I'm wearing an oversized 80s striped sweatshirt that I paired with floral tights and a super soft denim skirt.

I feel like stripes have always had a lot of rules around them -- don't wear horizontal, only wear skinny stripes, blah, blah, blah. Ignore the rules. Embrace stripes: the new polka dot.

Yay! I love stripes--the more nautical I can make my life, the better.

I seriously need to marry someone who has a yacht--mostly so I can dress in a theme the rest of my life. ("Why, yes, this is a captain's hat paired with a sailor's dress. You see, I spend most of my time out on the boat...yes, it is pretty wonderful...")

Ummm, yeah like only 7 hours. Haha. But, seriously, maybe one day we can plan to meet in the middle and romp around NYC together! :)
