Five Take Catch-Up: Stripes

May 24, 2012

As I mentioned in my last post, this week I am catching up on the various Five Take themes I missed, and one of those was stripes. I wear stripes pretty often, especially horizontal stripes. I honestly can’t remember the last time I wore vertical ones! Since I tend to wear stripes in my tops or cardigans, I figured I would work this theme in through an accessory.

When I spotted this navy and white striped purse at Aldo, I knew I needed to have it. I loved the pop of yellow, and it seemed very versatile. Little did I know that I’d have to try about 30 different combinations of things before I finally settled on this outfit to go with it. Even though this outfit came out of exasperation, I think it’s still a fun casual look.

How do you wear stripes? Do you have a particular stripe style that’s your favorite?

Keep an eye out tomorrow. I’ll be catching up on the bird print five take :).

    I absolutely love that dress, which I think I said the last time you wore it too, but it is still true! :) I never used to think of incorporating trends in my accessories, but I’ve been thinking about it more and more, particularly when trying to add in a bright/trendy color. That way you are updating your look for (hopefully) less.
