Falling for Stripes

I blame it on my mom. I can remember as a little girl looking up into her closets and seeing so many stripes I thought I might go cross eyed. There's something so classic and sophisticated about stripes and when I'm wearing them, I feel put together.Momma obviously felt the same way.I've already found myself with approximately half of my closet selection being of the stripe variety and I'm not even mad about it. I love to mix pattern and a good stripe is the perfect foundation.When I found this bell sleeved baby blue sweater last week, I immediately swooned! My general rule before purchasing something is that I need to be able to have at least three different ways I could wear it in order for it to make sense. I love this sweater with white jeans or front tucked into a suede skirt. It's also long enough to wear over leggings for a relaxed feel. The price also needs to be right. This one is under $38. Check the boxes and welcome to my closet, my friend.      I love that the color of the sweater is slightly lighter on the bottom and gets a little deeper at the top. I also love the cutout detail by the hem.Sweater linked hereBlush loafers linked here
