An Obsession (but the Good Kind)...

You may have noticed if you follow me on Pinterest (or Instagram) but I have a bit of an obsession with stripes. This causes me to be inexplicably drawn to any and all striped items when I'm shopping (and also causes my husband to roll his eyes whenever I insist that I neeeed yet another striped shirt or whatever.) Nonetheless, I have made several striped purchases in the last few months (how I ended up with three black and white striped dresses is a mystery, I swear!) and I would say I regret it or it's too much or something but, I don't and it's not. 

I snatched this skirt up back in January (when Target teasingly puts our their spring clothes while everyone's still bundled up) and wore it with a sweater and boots but (warning.. "23-19! We have a 23-19!" name that movie!) the static cling was out of control so it sat tucked away in all its cuteness in my closet for a few months. Now that it's warmer I felt I could wear it without going crazy and I did this week and I pretty much love it. Chevron? Hello... best skirt ever.

This dress, thanks to Kate, was brought to my attention and I just HAPPENED to have a gift card and (gasp!) I paid full price for it and I really love it. I do not love the picture above in which I look like a shower curtain (hips, much?) but it's so very comfortable and it has a slit to the knee on one side which makes it much cooler for our wretchedly hot summers here in the great North Carolina. (Oh, and Grace commented on the 'gram and said that this looks like something Kendi would wear so of course I love her even more than I did before, which was a lot.) 
AND sweet Carrie, according to Instagram, has the exact same outfit! Great minds, folks. (BTW, check out her shop for some great jewelry She runs the best deals!)

Don't you just love stripes? Of course you do. (Also, it occurs to me that I could have also written this about obsession with bubble necklaces, but I suppose that's a post for another day.)



  1. I love stripes too! The first outfit is very cute... I love the mix of mint and orange(or is it red?). :)

  2. I'm a stripe fan too!

    Your dress is gorgeous. I LOVE it. Definitely worth full price. ;-) And, I love how you style it with the necklace. Your skirt is adorable too. So fun.
