I Hate Stripes...


I hate wearing stripes but I wore them anyway. I'm trying to find ways to let go of all these rules that I've force myself to follow all these years...except wearing CROCS...I WILL NEVER ROCK CROCS!!! I would rather skin the bottom of my feet with a dull contaminated razor from the days of slavery and walk barefoot over the heads of 12 porcupines than wear CROCS! (do you get the picture now?) LOL


At any rate, here is just an in between time post until I have something super earthshattering to share.

Dress: Calvin Klein Sheath via Marshall's (2 years ago?)
Shoes: Nine West via Marshall's (last year perhaps?)
Necklace: F21
Bracelet: Gift from my Sister
Belt/purse/Cardigan: Thrifted
This isn't an especially postworthy outfit, I feel pretty ordinary in it..can't be fly all of the time, now can I? :)
I'll just call it my "professional" look so that I don't bang my head against the wall for finally accepting that I am getting older! Michelle Obama would approve of this ensemble though, don't you think? I am gonna have to rock my Prince t shirt and Skinny jeans soon, so I can feel cool again:)
I'll spice it up for the rest of the week. Let's call this a Mundane Monday Outfit Post:)

I'm not a fan of stripes either. I always feel goofy in them. You look nice in them though. And I think your "Mundane Monday Outfit" would outshine my dressy days... :) I'm so out of the fashion loop.

glad you through the stripes rule out the window cause they look great on you! I don't think its a mundane monday outfit. I love the dress with the fun striped sweater over, and the belt, and the purse! all super great pieces, that make one killer outfit!

I like stripes, and I happen to think they look good on you. And I have to agree with you about crocs... They're a no-no!
