Inspiration for the week: Breton Stripes



For most of my life, I've shied away from beautiful, super Frenchy French Breton Stripes because "the rule" is that curvy girls should not wear horizontal stripes. But lately, I've fallen in love with the look of stripes and I think it's about time to pick up a stripe or two in my life. So here are some images to get me...and hopefully you...inspired for the week.



All of these images can be found on my Pinboard: Style I Love

  4. Love all the striped shirts! They're such a simple way to spice up an outfit and make it look classic. I love the jacket/striped shirt/sparkly skirt combo.

  7. I was having this same conversation with a friend who is a curvy girl - conclusion, wear them anyway! Epitome of chic.

  14. We completly agree with you and are jumping on the stripped band wagon as well! I am in love with this top and think it could make into a easy DIY with a little bit of paint and the right top!

    Cant wait to see what you find in the stripes department now that we are following you!

    Cheers! xx

  22. Hi Natasha, so glad to find another "adopted" Canadian fashion blogger - I am your newest follower. I also can't resist a good stripe. In fact, I think most of the t-shirts I own are of the stripy variety. When I first saw the Chanel mariniere you have in your first pic, I fell for it, hard. So I decided to DIY it. I bought a St James mariniere and then painted the C's on. You can see the result in these two posts on my blog:
