For today's Mad Monday I am mad about nautical stripes. This is actually a fashion shout-out to my roomies Jen and Robyn (you can find Robyn at her blog "Keep Calm and Eat Your Broccoli") - both of these ladies have been working their own sets of stripes for a while now... and I'm just now realizing the benefits of this inspiration from old school sailors.
1- I know that "matchy-matchy" is generally looked down upon but goodness gracious if I could pull off yellow, I would probably wear this scarf and drink my green tea from this mug 6 days a week.
2- Sore muscles can be a thing of the unfashionable past with this little cutie! It's a hot water bottle alternative and it smells of lavender!! This gets this award for most functional cute thing ever.
3- I am a confessed home decor commitment-phobe. These stripes are very permanent but there's something about them (maybe the neutral of the grey and white or maybe the simple shape of the head board) that I'm really digging. And the fact that they're getting mixed with florals screams adventure, but it totally works because it's in the same color realm.
4- And let's talk about this dress! I am currently obsessing over the arrival of spring and this little dress would be the most perfect thing to welcome the new season. Add a pair of your favorite espadrilles and you'd be ready to go.
How do ya'll rock out stripes?
Do you prefer wide? Horizontal?
Bright colors? Neutrals?
There are so many options!! Share!
