My stripe obsession

I love stripes. Well, not always. But I currently adore a stripe and hey, guess what!  They are easy to wear, look stunning, and always come back into trend (just like this season, yes check me out with my new wardrobe staple!)

I have a whole wish list of stripe items but I did fall head over heels with this little number. Dress up, dress down and inject a little bit of Spring in your life. Yes please! I started styling this bad boy with my sexy Tesco boots and jeans until I realised the matching shoes I had just brought! Umm move over, sexy arse fuchsia pink shoes coming through (more on these here). Boom, day to night outfit right there. Just add this perfect little clutch from the good old trusty Dorothy Perkins and you have a smoking date outfit, or lunch with the girls. 


I’ve managed to work through a number of stripe tees throughout the years, Primark is your friend here. And then more recently  found a little beauty in TK Maxx but alas I have worn them to death now having discovered these are definitely a wardrobe staple of mine I’ve invested in this Joules tee but it also comes in a whole host of colours (so you can imagine my dilemma when I told myself to pick just one, aren’t I so good and disciplined?) but there are loads of stripes out there currently, some of my favs and wish list items are below.
