Bolder Twist on Bloggers Uniform

Wednesday, January 4, 2012
You know what's the word on the street, right? Everyone says that stripes are the official bloggers uniform - it seems to be true, at least in my closet. The thing is that about 95% of my clothes have the classic Breton sailing style pattern (it's not all bad considering those awesome people wore them too, right?). Anyway, I've decided that it's time to give a colour-lift to my stripes and add a few new green (total bargain), red (less expensive version), orange and maybe even pink pieces into the mix. If you fancy spicing up your beloved stripes as well, here are a few inspirations that I adore.

Lovelies, what’s your colour-pattern of choice? What's your favourite place to buy stripes? xo

P.S: This morning I saw a girl wearing a tomato-red and navy-blue stripes pattern in the café and she looked awesome!
P.P.S: Great stripes look and this cutie is simply adorable.

I didn't know there was an unspoken Blogger's uniform. Intriguing.
I do have a colourful green/blue Prada-esque striped top that I love...I should introduce more striped goodness!!

Love the colored stripes. Wish I could wear them - maybe in 2012?

Ha, I have never heard that stripes were a blogger's uniform. So funny! I wish I could wear stripes- up top I look too huge!

So precious!

You should totally try, Bella and Tiffany, I read somewhere that the very thin type of stripes look good on everyone. Maybe you should give them a go:) xo

My navy & white striped tunic from H&M is in constant wardrobe rotation with some skinny jeans & boots...it's my go to "oops I ate too many christmas cookies" outfit! :)

Alexa said...

That is so so funny. But so true. Do I dare say that I'm wearing a red and white striped shirt from Anthropologie as I'm blogging at this very minute? ;)

My uniform lately has been:
1 thing I made
1 rock n' roll style thing
1 hippy style thing

and then fill in the blanks. I love henley shirts, though. I can usually be found in one. Maybe I should make red lipstick, a henley and pretty panties my uniform for when I blog as a Stay at Home Mom...

Tish said...

ha! I'm wearing stripes right now.

Emily said...

I realize the striped section of my closet is growing and growing :) I admit I'm not venturing outside black and white...but this color is definitely inspiring me!

Diana Mieczan said...

Good Girls Studio, giggle. I love your comment! I have one of those "oops I ate too many christmas cookies" tunics as well. Brilliant!

Diana Mieczan said...

That is super awesome, Alexa!!! And Amy, ohhh yes, J.Crew has some awesome pieces:)

Diana Mieczan said...

You will be one snazzy stay at home mommy, HiLLjO!

I hadn't heard that bloggers have a 'uniform' before! But now that I think of it... it's kinda true! My wardrobe has many striped garments... AND I'm wearing my fav in my blogger profile pic! HAHA!

I truly love white and navy stripes but I LOVE LOVE the floor length coat/dress in the last picture you have here.
