(These photos at J.Crew from last month—I’m a little behind.)
I do love stripes. But in my case, stripes are more of an accent than the main event.
But I do own a striped makeup bag, umbrella, and wallet. I couldn't resist the teal stripes. Or being matchy matchy with the decor at Sweet Jesus 4 Life.
I also couldn't resist the navy stripes at J Crew recently.
It is a little weird that I don't have a Breton tee. They're simple and chic and look good on everyone. But if I've learned anything about my own personal style, it's that I don't need to and shouldn't force myself to wear something just because everyone else is. I can love the look of the striped tee on other people (and I do), and leave it at that.
