Stars and stripes

You’re not really surprised to see these striped jeans again so soon after my “Being me” post…are you??

Lately, when I’m thinking about making a purchase, I’ve been asking myself if I would be happy wearing the piece in question every single day…and these jeans most certainly qualify!!  I mean, they’re super-comfortable, flattering (those stripes give the illusion of long legs I don’t really have!) and fun (again, those stripes!!)

And adding my starry, grey and white topper to the striped denim makes for a cute combination, don’t you think??  It’s a somewhat more understated interpretation of the current pattern-mixing trend…and a gentle way of easing into sweater season, as well!!

That doesn’t mean that I’ve totally “warmed up” to autumn just yet, though…but at least it’s a step in the right direction!!  πŸ˜‰

    Looking seriously gorgeous, Monika!! Plus, stars and stripes – what an amazingly perfect & fun combo. I'm honestly in love with this outfit. And I hear ya, lately when shopping, I only pick up pieces I know I'll wear time and time again! xo

      You are a sweetie, dearest Veronika…thank you!! πŸ™‚ And asking myself that little question has really helped me to focus on "true love" when I'm shopping…just because something looks good, doesn't automatically mean it needs to come home with me!!

    I really love this top, it looks so soft and cozy and feminine! The "mismatched" prints look great in this outfit, very nice combination! πŸ™‚

      It's really just a sweater and jeans, dearest Dawn…but when you throw some interesting patterns into the mix, "basic" suddenly isn't so basic anymore!! πŸ˜‰
