An Ode To Stripes
Is there anything that screams summer more than a good stripe? This quintessential pattern is what nautical dreams are made of (sailboats, beach towels, and Breton sweaters) and this year I am loving stripes for fall just as much as I was during the warmer months. Really, why should summer have all the fun???
I'm a firm believer that there is no better pattern to transition your home or wardrobe though the change in seasons than a classic blue stripe and my current favorites are those that stray a little from the traditional navy and white. For my clothing, I'm loving stripes that are a little muted, and this fall I plan on taking my taking cues from the French, and as the weather gets cooler I'll be pairing my summer stripes with my trusty basics like a white tee, a black sweater or blazer, and of course, my favorite jeans. For the home nothing pairs better with stripes than crisp white (bedding, walls) for a clean look year round and right now I'm loving stripes that are bold and a little brighter than those that are traditionally navy. To keep your home from feeling to too beachy, throw in some darker furniture and bonus points go to those of you who can light the fireplace nearby.
Below I've rounded up a few of my favorite striped items for the home, yourself, and even the kiddos. When it comes to a great stripe, there is no such thing as too much and for me there is no such thing as just one season. Long live the stripe! Xx
