What to Wear: stripes…

For this addition of What to Wear, the mission was to show you our stripes. This shirt is one of the 3 that I’ve been practically living in this winter and I’ve even been gingerly hand-washing it so it doesn’t shrink to an unrecognizable form, like so many other F21 “machine-washables”.

I do love stripes but don’t feel like I own a lot of them. One of my favorite stripy pieces I wore on the blog back in September.

shirt- F21
shorts- thrifted
tights- Target
boots- vintage store
hat- vintage, from my great-grandmother’s collection
scarf- made by me using this pattern

I made this scarf a few years ago when I had superfluous amounts of time to knit and watch TV. I would venture to guess this scarf was made during a few Six Feet Under marathons. Haven’t seen it? It’s amazing and I insist you watch it right now.

    I cannot believe that you made this scarf?! What? Oh, and I was a huge fan of SFU – so good. You look lovely! I love the shorts with tights look on you. Another trend that I have yet to try! :) I am trying to be more adventurous, I really am. Slowly but surely. I hope you are having a great day, my lady! xo

    you are such a cutie! I’m lovin the sort of androg look you made w/ the shorts + top hat & the scarf tied as a big bow tie. I love stipes too but for some reason only own one stripped top. we should do a thrifting date some day : ) That scarf is awesome too, looks really elaborate, nice job!
