In case you weren't previously aware, I am quite obsessed with stripes. STRIPES STRIPES STRIPES. They've become kind of my security blanket that I wear almost everyday. Whenever I go shopping I constantly have to tell myself that No, I do not need anything striped shirt you have plenty already, but I might need to change that because that just means I wear my favorite stripes far more than is healthy or perhaps even sanitary. I believe my stripes obsession came from my year in France, since they do have that beautiful and classic boatneck navy striped shirt that almost defines France and definitely the region of Brittany where I was staying. Therefore, the navy, black, and grey (which are the real colors of the French not the blue white and red) stripes are my most commonly worn items. However, I am trying to break away from that. The other day I bought an ORANGE striped shirt. I know, I am going absolutely crazy! Huge changes, I don't know if I can handle it. I will show you that shirt sometime soon.
So back to this outfit, I wore it for no good reason at all. Just hung out with my brother at his house (the last picture is a view from his living room at night). I was going for a funky Jcrew look, which is ultimately what I believe Jcrew is actually going for instead of the motherly New England pole up her ass, non-creative look most people create when wearing Jcrew. Like honestly, look at their catalogues and all their outfits look gorgeous and creative. Look at their clientale...borinnggg. Sadly, none of this outfit is actually from Jcrew--honestly it's way too expensive. But I hope you still see the inspiration. Actually, I lied! The chain necklace is from Jcrew, I bought if for my apparent goth prom dress....
|Outfit-- Striped tank: Brandy Melville, Silver Skirt: H&M, Denim Shirt: Buffalo Exchange, Boots: LF|
|Ok I lied above, I didn't buy these boots from LF but I saw them there and I actually bought them from this random store in SOHO so I figured that was easier to find. I wear them everyday, all year round so they're a little beat up.|
|Look how gorgeous that view is from Glen Park/Diamond Heights in San Francisco|
