Nautical

Don't you just love stripes? I do, i do ! But then again, who doesn't? They say that a vertical stripes makes you look wider, a no no..... However, there are a lot of fashion rules that has long been broken. Rules have changed and shifted. Stripes can now be wear vertical without looking like an oversized armoire. The key is finding that flatters your figure and size. The options are endless. Silhoutte and style varies. But there is one thing that inspite being a petite girl like me never get around wearing- a wide horizontal stripe pants. I just don't know why. What are your thoughts? Please do tell. 
I hope everyone have a fantastic weekend.
Thank you from the heart with a happy dance
(spring break just started for us) :)

  10. Sam, that is SUCH an amazing outfit! I adore anything nautical (including a good stripy top and sailor dresses). The necklace is super adorable and I love how you've teamed the jacket with the shirt and blouse. If I had the items I would try to recreate this outfit (I have trousers similar...hmmm.....)

    As to the horizontal stripe trousers, I've never had a pair though I do have several pairs of vertical striped trousers I had made in Indonesia- they are huge and wide-legged and they look a bit like curtain material- I love them although I get people making all manner of jokes about them being curtains or pajamas!x

  28. Happy belated birthday Sam! I hope you had a fantastic day! I love stripes they are such a classic and timeless staple. Love this whole look, those pants are fantastic!
    As for wide horizontal stripe pants...I think it's a tricky look to pull off, but that being said if you find the right style and cut they can look amazing.

  29. That striped jacket is so nice! I think stripes always go with everything, although you are right there are some striped things I wouldn't try! I love vertical striped jeans on others, but they are definitely not for me!
