Stripes Galore

Who doesn't love stripes? If you raised your hand, I'm not sure I want to know.

Mint and purple are my new favorite color combo. They just look like they belong together, don't they? And these shoes. I love these shoes. I still remember when I found them sitting on the clearance rack last year. The very last pair and in my size. Fate.

I know I've been a bit MIA lately on this little old blog of mine. Sorry about that! Summer really throws my schedule for a loop since we're away most of the weekends, but don't worry, I'm still alive! I know you've all been worried. Happy Monday!

Aww, you look so cute and summery! That hat is perfect with the striped top and those edgy heels. I have a similar skirt, only it's coral and beige. I think mint just looks so lovely with everything, especially pink and purple.

Don't worry, we all need a little break to disappear every once in awhile. Glad you're back!

Horizontal stripes can make a body look wider and are usually not flattering which is why I don't wear them.
