Adrien: Striped Addiction.

So, funny thing happened. Gap had a good sale last week so I ordered this striped shirt in the red/blue colorway and then a few days later I pulled out my winter stuff and was like, Oh. I have a problem you guys:

Heh. In my defense, the one I ordered is more fitted and lighter weight. The one I'm wearing is more like the Everlane Heavyweight tee, which I also own. So, like, totally different. I might have also ordered the oatmeal stripe because it's only mildly similar to a shirt I already own. Just mildly! And you guys, have you seen the Madewell et S├ęzane striped shirts? Super cute. And obviously this one is the ultimate in cute. And y'all know I want the ombre version of this breton top. Can't stop, won't stop. 

So I'm wearing my old Gap top with my newer Madewell coated skinny jeans (reviewed here) which are not really photographing well but please trust me that they're great. Almost like leather but way less trouble! If the Madewell pair is too spendy, this Blank NYC pair is on sale and looks very similar and ooh, Joe Fresh has a pair under $50. On to details:

This top has cute little round brass button detail on the shoulder which I love. I'm continuing my nautical obviousness by wearing my Giles and Brother fish hook pendant. I'm also wearing my favorite La Mer wrap watch and my Alexis Bittar cocktail ring. My bag is a MBMJ Too Hot To Handle Hobo. It's a peach. 

And now, my flats. I took a detail shot because how cool are these? They're Frye and long sold out but there are lots of cute Frye shoes on 6pm. I think the blue Carson ballet flats are my current favorite though the Alicia are also a solid choice. For something more interesting (though not on sale) this pair of Sienna pointy toed flats are kind of amazing.

In case you had your heart set on my pair, they're the Frye Emma Hammered Stud flat and there are a few pairs on eBay right now! True to size.

  1. I bought that shirt from BR and then returned it, but I don't remember why. I want to order it again. It's totally different than the 15 other striped shirts I have...
