so jessica, over at what i wore, thought it would be great to gather together bloggers and declare tuesday the day for stripes. (she actually mentioned breton stripes, but i loved this shirt and thought it was close enough.) as everyone who reads this blog knows, i love stripes! the simplest way to pull off a wearable nautical ensemble without looking too over-the-top. this top just called to me; with it's bright red stripes and ruffled sleeves, i knew it would be a perfect layering piece. easy to dress up or down, with a chambray skirt it was great for my day in the office. the red in the top really made the red porcelein buttons on the skirt pop and i loved the overall look.
cheers to one more monday biting the dust!
