When in Doubt, Stripes

So, my sartorial struggles continued today.  But, then I remembered, when in doubt, stripes:

And you know what?  It worked.  This outfit may not be anything to write home about; it’s just a striped sweater (American Eagle) over a black-skirted two-fer dress (Target), navy tights (Target) and black riding boots (Vince Camuto “Fantastic” via Nordstrom).  But, unlike the last two days, I’m comfortable in it, both physically and mentally, so let’s consider this a win, shall we?

And remember, folks, when in doubt, stripes.  Or polka dots.  Polka dots are good in a pinch as well.

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!



  1. I am be-striped today, as well. It's always a good time for stripes. I like the detail on the yoke of your jumper very much.

  2. so true! stripes and polka dots are easy outfit picks!


  3. Stripes make everything better, always--and I've always coveted that sweater of yours!

  4. Yep. Stripes really are a great thing. I could most likely wear stripes every day for a month and never wear repeat an item. That's crazy, right?

    That sweater is great. Your smile is extremely contagious.


  5. When in doubt, always stripes! I love that sweater- especially the interesting 'V' design above the chest- it's a neat detail.

  6. Love black and navy together. It has a great level of sophistication to it. Stripes are amazing in a pinch, and it is really working for you in this outfit.

  7. Comfy and cute as always. Love the way the stripes sorta make a "v" shape up top on your sweater, really adds fun detail!
