This, my friends, is how you rock a stripe like a boss! Or, as Ian requested as he took the photo, this is my Conan the Barbarian stance. Intimidating, right!? Ha.
Now, this necklace. Let me tell you about this AH. MAY. ZING. new necklace of mine. Ian gave it to me the night of our Christmas dinner, right before I changed into my new onesie for a lap around the party. Yeah. That happened. Anyway, the necklace. Not only is it the cutest thing ever, it was made with lasers!!! Lasers, people. Lasers and cute smiling faces! Could it be more perfect?
Anyway, back to the stripes. By now, it should be clear that I'm not one to follow the "no stripes for girls who aren't stick thin" rule. Nah. I'm a lover of the stripe, especially on tops. In fact, when I was thinking about what to wear for this post, I realized that all of my eight striped shirts and three of my five striped cardigans have made it on the blog already in some shape or form. So, for this outfit, I had to do a remix of a shirt you've already seen. (If you'll recall, this is the top I wore in my spontaneous and slightly ridiculous photoshoot with Ian's snorkel and trophy fish.)
Don't forget to check out how the other What to Wearers striped it up this week. You can find them all at their respective blogs.
Marcia: Like a Small Fire
Amanda: Salvaged Strawberry
Lisa: lala faux bois
Shayla: Northern Exposure
Tell me, how do you feel about a stripe? Do you sport them?
UPDATE: Sorry for not including my outfit details earlier. I honestly didn't know where Ian found the necklace, so I left that business out. I have asked him, though, and he said he just went to Etsy and typed in octopus. So, I did the same and I found the shop. It's called Graphic Spaces. Enjoy!
