Nautical Stripes

Two striped pieces snagged my attention at J. Crew recently:

Stripe sweater-skirt

Evie striped peep toe pumps

Unfortunately, neither one is to be mine. That skirt looks a little tough to wear, and at 5’10”, heels are  (sadly enough) not my friend! Still, I can’t help loving the nautical stripes, the fantastic pockets on the skirt, and the adorable peep toe/bow combo of the shoes. I’ll just have to continue loving these beauties from afar!

    I love both of these pieces. I adore stripes, but I just cannot wear them very well!

    5'10 – wow you lucky thinking – I'm only 5ft2 – so stripes and heels are good for me!). J Crew is fantastic – I just look on the website and *sigh0

    Those shoes just stole my heart. I'm pretty in love with nautical stripes. I have this perfectly lightweight and flowy nautical striped sweater from JCrew that I absolutely adore. It's the perfect weight for summer evenings.

    5'10"? Wow, I always wanted to be taller.

    LOVE these! Stripes are fantastic – and at 5'2, I'm pretty sure I could rock those heels!
