Stripes Galore!


Never let it be said that I don’t follow my own advice! Although I will freely admit that this time I may have gone slightly overboard. The problem is that once I decide I need a specific piece in my wardrobe – be it a pair of boyfriend jeans, a floral dress or pair of metallic pumps – and start searching for it, all of a sudden the said item seems to be everywhere. Being super indecisive, I then end up buying two or three very similar things. So, somehow I have now ended up with five striped tops (although one is more of a tunic/dress) to my name – three long sleeved ones from H&M and two short-sleeved from Topshop. Only one of them cost over £20 so at least my splurge on stripes didn’t break the bank. I am confident that I will get plenty of wear out of all of them but I also have a niggling feeling that two may have sufficed!

Does anyone else have the same problem? If so do you give in to the temptation to buy several very similar items or are you disciplined enough to limit yourself to only one?

Pink Breton

And one more! This one I bought from the kids’ section in H&M last summer (seriously, if you’re petite it’s a great place to pick up some fab pieces!). The bright pink stripes helped brighten up the dull, rainy day we’ve had today. Sunshine forecast this weekend though!

Hope you’ve had a good Wednesday. X

  1. Oh my God: I thought you’d ransacked my wardrobe! I have so many striped tops my superhero name would have to be The Zebra (with the ability to camouflage in savannah conditions?).

  2. I love the ones you picked! Wmm….I’m a little embarrassed to say that this happens to me…especially when denim is involved. I’m always like, “well I don’t have quite this same denim top…” and wind up with like 10 of them. LOL it’s always good when it doesn’t break the bank, I agree!

  3. Love the stripes!! They never date, so a girl can really never have too many, right?! I’m that way with shoes. If I’m on the hunt for a specific pair and find them in 2 colours….well, I might as well buy them both, because shoes do wear out quickly, you know. I mean, I have to be prepared!! 🙂

  4. Stripes are timeless! I need to buy one as well.. So I’ll have a look at H&M 🙂
    I’m like you.. I actually bought a loose shirt from H&M with all 4 colours! I don’t even think I need those 4. Ooops 😀
