my outfit: mmmmm... stripes!

I had to run into Forever 21 quickly recently for a new pair of sandals... I'm not much for buying items like sandals in the middle of the summer (I like to be prepared!) but unfortunately a very, very favorite pair of mine died an untimely death.  (these. moment of silence. thanks.)  Any way... there were stripes EVERY WHERE in that store and sheesh, I just can't say no to a good stripe.  So this little top came home with me.  It would be my fifth striped shirt.  I guess I like stripes.  Are you as obsessed as I am?

I think I could wear stripes everyday... so effortless!  Is there one style you could wear everyday?  Stripes? Other?

In other news... you know I always love to share new things that I am loving lately...  if you are the working out type you absolutely MUST check out the NTC iPhone app from Nike.  I originally didn't realize that is was only for women (I made my hubby do some of the workouts with me!).  Either way... these workouts ROCK and you will feel half dead and 100% alive after doing them.  WOW!  Plus, I love that you don't really need to be at the gym for them.  Use cans of beans or tomatoes instead of hand weights and one of your kids soccer balls instead of a medicine ball.

In other news.... told ya I was loving on these earrings!

Ahaha we're twins - this weekend MY favourite sandals died too (maybe they're hanging out in sandal heaven together too...) - I went to H&M, Old Navy, Zara, Urban Outfitters, Aldo... to find a new pair to no avail but thankfully I got a stripy top too!!! How funny! Btw... did you end up finding a pair of replacement sandals though unlike me?

Oh man, at least 1/4 of my shirts are striped. I simply cannot get enough. Sometimes I feel guilty for not giving other patterns a chance, but hey...stick with what you know, right? :)

I too love stripes but honestly, I'm always drawn to polka dots for some reason too. I don't blame ya, I would have snagged up that little shirt as well :)

Jill, your outfit is adorbs, but your eyes - your EYES - are so blue and gorgeous in these photos - so pretty!!!

Sadly, a few months ago, my favorite sandals also died an untimely death, on the street just outside of Urban Outfitters, so I was forced to go buy a new pair (which I do not like NEARLY as much as my dearly departed). Sigh.

Guilty! I'm as obsessed with stripes as you are. It's ridiculous how many things I own with stripes. Sometimes, I really have to stop myself from buying more. I love your outfit. It's simple and totally something I would wear.

Love this top! I've been so deprived all summer because our F21 has been closed for renovations. Killin me! So sorry about your favorite sandals.
