Different stripes

Firstly, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all the amazing comments, love and donations on the last blogpost. It really means a lot to me to have such a support network in you. It was heartbreaking reading how many of you have also been affected by Dementia but I was also comforted in your lovely words.

We actually doubled my original target of £600 for Alzheimer’s Society and I cannot thank you all enough.

It feels weird, somehow, to go back to my regular posts. Suddenly I’m talking about fashion again….

So I thought I’d ease myself in gently and do a bit of a classic ‘me’ style post – all about stripes. Those who have been reading my blog/following my social channels for a while, know my love of stripes knows know bounds. If I ever feel unsure on what to wear, you can be sure a striped breton will set me straight…and if I’m ever shopping (online or instore) I am always drawn to stripes in some form or another.

But I thought I’d look at a few different wears to wear stripes, rather than just with jeans (although that’s fine by me, too). The good news is, the red stripe top I borrowed from H&M from my holiday is finally online – but also, I quite enjoyed researching this – it really made me think of some different ways to style my own stripes….and hope it does for you, too.

1. Top: £19.99, H&M.

2. Bag: £30, Accessorize.

3. Sunglasses: £17.99, Mango.

4. Velvet heels: £49.99, Mango.

5. Jeans: £39.99, H&M.

And now for something a bit simpler…I’ve always rated Boden’s breton tops, the fabric is soft and I would size up for a bit more of a slouchy fit. Uniqlo is also a great place to look.

1. Earrings: £8.50, Next.

2. Breton: £28, Boden.

3. Skirt: £39, Topshop.

  1. Hello! All look great – What size did you get in the st James top? I’ve been wanting one for while but not sure what size to get – im 8-10 but would like a bit slouchy…
