  2. my favorite is the skirt combo - it's totally not my style and while I think I could pull it off I probably would never have the guts to. I'm stuck in my ways. Jeans or black/grey striped pants, black flats, blouses w/cartigans.

  3. ooooh I love all the choices but I think the moccasin/jeggings look is my favourite. Completely agree that any striped t-shirt is a wardrobe staple!

  11. oooh, all three options are so chic and cute! you can never, ever go wrong with a basic stripe. so far this season my favorite staple has been my black crop pants, but my striped scoop neck tee has been a close second :)

  21. I always thought that boat necks are incredibly sexy and flattering, and then when you add stripes, it just goes to a new level of cool. Very French.
