When jcrew announced they had made up a holiday known as ‘National Stripes Day’ it just sounded like too much fun not to join in on the celebration. After all, who doesn’t have a stripe or two (or three or . . . ) sitting around their closets?
We hadn’t planned on celebrating in the rain but mother nature decided she wanted to join in as well. And what a perfect day to bring out our striped umbrella which fit right in with our holiday.
Is it just me or is there something about stripes that bring out playfulness and energy and joy?
There’s one thing for sure, the possibilities for wearing stripes is endless. Striped pants, dresses, skirts, blazers, blouses, knit shirts, shoes, and even swimwear, all in a variety of splendid colors.
Today we staying with striped pants and knit shirts and a trusty umbrella all in the traditional blue and white.
So . . . are you celebrating National Stripes Day?
