Stripes

stripes
In thinking about stocking my wardrobe with classic basics I keep coming back to stripes. Something about them seem both fresh and timeless. They seem perfectly all-American and yet somehow the epitome of French chic.

My brain is a bit tired today so I'm going to let the pictures do the rest of the talking...

I like how you layered these pics - very cute. Yes, stripes are a very much needed piece. I only have a few.
