OOTD: Red Stripes

You have no idea how happy I am to tell you that I’ve finally found the one! I’ve been on the search for what feels like ages now and I can’t believe I found it when I wasn’t even looking (isn’t that always the way?!).

Yes, dollface, I’m happy to announce that I have finally found a red and white striped top that I luuuuuuuuuurve!

Ever since I got rid of an old, stained one about a million years ago I’ve been looking for its replacement and I haven’t been successful. Every one I’ve seen has either been the wrong shade of red or it had weird sleeves or the stripes themselves were the wrong width (it’s a thing, trust me). That was until I was browsing through Big W one day and stumbled up this one and I grabbed it with both hands and may have done a little jig.

We all know that I am a sucker for stripes but there’s something about red and white stripes especially that sets my heart aflutter. I feel like they could spice up any outfit and bring a bit of fun to it. Red and white stripes evoke hints of nautical flair or Parisian panache and oodles of flirtatiousness.

Do you have an item of clothing you’ve been hunting down?

  1. Perfect stripe width is totally a thing, and I’ve never bought red and white stripes, only black/blue and white, but OMG that looks divine!

  2. Love the sleeves on it too! There is something so soothing about the perfect striped top. Coincidentally, I have just ticked off TWO items on the current Needs list; knee high brown boots and a warm lined khaki anorak with fur trim hood. YAY.

  3. I’m so glad you found your shirt. I hate when an item of clothing gets worn out and needs to be thrown away and I can’t find a decent replacement for it. I’m probably going to have to go looking for some decent jeans soon. I’m down to two pair and they’re getting a bit sad looking.

    • It’s the worst isn’t it?! I have friends who buy 2 of the same piece if they really like it but I just don’t have the room for it all but I’m starting to come around to their way of thinking LOL! Hope you find a great pair ASAP Lauren 🙂 xo
