Icons and Their Stripes

Tuesday, December 20, 2011


I'm not sure what it is exactly that makes me swoon over the classic Breton sailing style shirts but I simply can't resist them. It must be that they ooze French chic mixed with a laidback vibe of total coolness :) It's mind-blowing to think that the whole trend started in the 1900's with the amazing Mademoiselle Chanel and her trip to the French Riviera. So, this morning I’d love to share a few of my favourite icons sporting this nautical staple to the perfection. Don't they look dashing? Do you wear stripes? xo

P.S: More adorable stripes!
P.P.S: And this whole outfit - love.

I'm pretty sure I only own one striped shirt at this point. Now I know what to add to my post-Christmas shopping list!

And I totally wish I had Audrey Hepburn's eyebrows. :-)

I picked up a boat neck striped shirt while xmas shopping yesterday and realized that 3 out of the last 5 things I've bought this season are striped sweaters! So, yeah, I wear stripes (maybe too much of them)!
