my outfit: cross the tees and dot the 'i's

Ahhhh... stripes. Doesn't just looking at them make you happy? I have had my eye on this sweater for a bit and since it's arrival (pulled the old rabbit out of a hat trick... you know, online!) I haven't wanted to take it off!

It's a great summer sweater weight and I just love the three-quarter length sleeves.

Paired with polka-dot TOMS and a yellow jacket - it's some type of old fashioned fun that I am really digging.

Have you snagged some stripes yet this season?

Another coincidence today...striped sweater, 3/4 sleeves, golden accessories, but black flare pants and high heels because I had a meeting before going to work...
Am I becoming your Brazilian version? ;-)
Have a nice weekend!

Really nice!


It seems like I wear stripes almost every day! Seriously, I can't even tell you how many striped things I have. Your outfit is adorable - love, love that trench!

I found you through the breton stripe challenge and I just love what you've done with it! I love that you paired the stripes with polkadots and the pop of yellow is fantastic! Great job!

Love the shirt! I honestly haven't even thought about stripes this season, but after seeing this, I'm definitly on the search. I love the yellow coat too! It adds that punch of color :)

I love your yellow coat. Yellow is my favorite color, especially on rainy days (here anyways) like today!

I was even happier to see it was from Lands' End. I actually live about 20 miles from Lands' End headquarters :)
