Classic Stripes ( & #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

I think i could quite happily live out my days dressed mostly in stripes. I think its just that i’ve found an easy to wear style that i love and therefore it becomes my default outfit. If i counted the number of striped tops i have in my wardrobe we would definitely be in double figures, all of them different of course, red stripes, black, navy, and then this one which has a lovely blue, red and white. This one took my stripe loving heart instantly, the Le Weekend stitched motif (which sadly we didn’t manage to capture fully in a photo, but you can see it here much clearer) is just perfect as stripes on weekends for me are pretty much my uniform (and any other day too really ?), comfy yet pulled together, wear with shoes or sneakers.
I paired it with this gorgeous navy long pea coat from Boden that i actually picked up from Ebay for a mere £7.99. Its like new (it still had the pickets sewn up as if it had never really been worn) and it felt even more amazing for the fact i’d grabbed myself such a bargain. I have a love hate relationship with Ebay, people always manage to swoop in and outbid me in those last few seconds. Or god forbid, you manage to get in to a bidding war and you just cant stop bidding ..ha!
So when you get a bargain like this one, well you can see why i was just so pleased.
I can see me getting a lot of wear out of it too.

Are you a love of stripes?

    I remember when I couldn't understand the appeal of stripes. But once you get one striped top, I think it's addictive!!
    Have a great weekend, Rachel!

    I love, love, love this look. A perfect shade of red for your colouring. And red paired with navy always seems to make the red seem a more expensive shade somehow. Susan x
