Summer Stripes


It is no secret I 'm addicted to stripes and see no sign of my love for them ever waning! They are the first thing I am drawn to when I see a rail of clothing in a shop or whilst browsing online at sale reductions! The reason for this I think, is that they always look so refreshing and never date.
 I think summer is especially good for showing a striped outfit at its best!


This week alone I wore them twice both in very different ways! The dress above is a simple shift style from the Only clothing label! It is two years old and still in perfect shape. I like this style dress as I feel they suit my figure best! The 3/4 sleeve length is also a bonus as I am not to keen at my age on tight short sleeves! Adding a pop of colour gives an added lift to the outfit for summer styling:)

Stripe Tinny dress Vila

I have found this one on the Vila website which is a very similar style to mine . It also comes in lots of different colourways and a fabulous price at €26.95.


Adding a denim jacket and casual crossover bag as seen above, makes for lovely simple daywear which always looks so chic.


Yesterday I had an impromtu visit to Dublin and lunch out with my hubs so out came a striped top to dress up my old denim jeans! I bought this one in M&S last year as I thought the bold vertical stripes would make a change and they are supposed to make you look taller!
 The top is from their Autograph range and again great quality which will stand the test of time! I had to bring a suedette cropped jacket with me as the weather wasn't looking great heading off! 



I don't see my style available this season but this wider stripe one is also lovely and on sale at Oasis at the moment if anyone is looking for a new stripe top.

Now I have to stop looking myself or I could be tempted to add a few more additions to my own wardrobe:)

Hope you are all having a good week-almost Friday again!!
