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 :).
