The Striped Crop Top

I know I have been over dosing on stripes lately, and that you are probably so sick of it! I went to an event earlier this week and met a PR pro that I had been corresponding with for a few weeks now via email ... the first thing she said to me was "you're not wearing stripes?!". Then I knew the obsession had maybe gotten a wee bit out of control. I promise I'll try and scale back the stripes, especially this striped crop top, but I can't say goodbye to them entirely since they are quickly become one of my signatures (in addition to my red lip of course).

Anyways before I start switching out my stripes for other patterns, I'm determined to get you all abroad the striped crop top train by sharing
10 ways to wear a striped crop top!

The obsession started with my long sleeve cropped top, but I shortly switched to a more summer-friendly version as the season changed… either where way you slice it there's a whole lot of stripes going on.

  5. Love this sooo much! I really love stripes
    and you look so good in them too


  6. I say if you love it, wear it! I have pieces that I wear over and over in different ways. If you get a lot of wear out of a piece, and you should, don't let anyone knock it! Having a signature as a blogger is a good thing anyways :)
