The short of it

You've already seen the long, and I know, would it kill me to actually come up with a new outfit once in a while? I just get on these kicks and I can't seem to shake them.

This is also a problem that comes from my refusal to stop buying the same thing over and over again. This is really bad when it comes to stripes. So as the owner of a wide striped maxi dress, mini skirt and blazer, you are just going to have to be subjected to seeing me reincarnate the same look until I tire of it. Someday. Eventually. Maybe.

Thanks Sassy Uptown Chic for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

Seriously who will tire of your stripes? Certainly not I! This outfit has a nice chic-ness to it and is making me want to go out on the one denim shirt I have before fall sets in. Great outfit and wow Peanut is so cute I would have taken him home.
Cheers,
Bre

i felt shamed a few weeks back bc i felt distressed that i desperately wanted to buy a pair of grey snakeskin embossed heels. "i don't have anything like them, except my nearly identical grey heels that aren't embossed." seriously- i need to check myself sometimes. and i need that dog cause i definitely don't have anything like him! :)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Peanut is unbelievably cute! Hey go with what works and glad you're getting good use out of the bag!

Frannie Pantz said...

I can't decide which is cuter, that puppy or your outfit. I am a huge stripes hoarder. I can't see how it could be wrong, when it feels so right.

Claire said...

I think my favorites are the chambray tux shirt and the gorgeous bag--but then I am also addicted to stripes =)

And the puppy??? TOO CUTE!!!

Amber Blue Bird said...

I have the same problem. I went to 2 family functions a week apart and realized I wore a different striped blouse each time....my family probably thinks all I own are striped blouses.

The Closet Shopper said...

This outfit is spectacular. I really love it. I do the same thing when I love something. I buy it 15 times in different and similar ways.

Peanut is killing me. So cute.

xo,
Tracy

Alex Elizabeth said...

Oh what a cute little fluffball! Yeah stripes are great, I've got to get more of them. Also, that belt is so cool and definitely looks like Ralph Lauren Black Label right now. I like to torture myself by going to see it... belts start around $700 hahahahha

{The Perfect Palette} said...

Loving that striped skirt. Way to rock it!

xo, chrissy

Sam said...

Aaaaaah, that puppy!!! I can't get over it how cute he is! This is is a serious case of 'it's so fluffy I'm gonna die!'.

You look also very cute! That can't be forgotten, haha :)

Jess said...

I won't get tired of it... I love stripes as well! :) You look beautiful and classy in this outfit.

Isabel said...

OMG cutest dog ever! and i LOVE your skirt!

Julie Del said...

I also have a stripe addiction....so I can relate. You look great!

Sarah said...

I can't wait to get a puppy! This one is so adorable! I say, if something looks good on you, buy it in every color, shape and pattern available!

Ellie said...

I totally know what you mean. Once I find a style/shade that I like...I refuse to stray from it. I've literally bought so many olive green staple pieces that my friends refuse to let me purchase anymore. Loving these photos...you can't go wrong with stripes!!

-Ellie

Shea said...

I love all of your striped pieces--I don't think they're too much of a good thing at all! I love how black and white stripes go with so many different things !

Mrs. J said...

Lovely outfit, the first thing I'm obsessed with is your belt! The second thing is that lovely Coach bag. I'm seeing for the second time.

I love how you rock your signature turquoise jewelry.

Lorena said...

I think you better delete this post from Chloe - she might get Peanut jealous.
AND I can take all the stripes. I too have sinned: striped blazer, striped cardigan, striped dress, striped top, striped blazer, striped shoes. GOD I hope this trend lasts forever.

DaniellaBella said...

Why not keep rocking what is working! You look amazing lovely lady!!
