I love these two items. A lot!
mixed-up stripes throw, $160 USD, Happy Habitat
knot #3 print, $95 USD, Angela Chrusciaki Blehm
Just until about 3 or 4 years ago (or maybe 5?), I completely avoided stripes in my wardrobe. If something had stripes on it, I’d look the other way. Nowadays, though, I can’t resist them. Mostly, I go for the horizontal variety, but I also look for something a bit unusual (e.g., I loved this Banana Republic top as soon as I put it on).
Here are several stripes that caught my eye.
stripe t-shirt, Max Mara
Signature boatneck stripe top, L.L.Bean
Gemma flats, J.Crew
ruffled bell-sleeve shift dress, J.Crew
stripe bead top, Banana Republic
draped cami, Tibi
stripe tee, Old Navy
glitter spot Breton, Boden
boxy stripe top, Boden
striped tee, Le Petit Bateau
What a delight it is this spring to see my friends welcome babies into their lives- and mine too in the role of tante Johanne!
I’m so excited to meet these wee ones soon: baby Vivienne and my friend Christine will be visiting Toronto next week, and baby Julian and mom Kanwaljeet will be up for a visit in the coming months- he was born just last week. Congratulations to the happy families!
And while we’re on the spring chick topic, surely you heard that Diane von Furstenberg-Â legendary fashion designer known for her iconic print wrap dresses- has done a collaborative collection for little girls with babyGap and Gap Kids?
Here’s our pick for sweet Vivienne and Julian (unfortunately no baby boy goods by DVF but still adorable from babyGap):
DVF <3 babyGap eyelet wrap dress, $73
Onesie for Stripes Day, $14.95 at babyGap
