Stripes and floral ain't* nothing new (see other ways I've worn it here and here), but it's still one of my favorite combinations. I wore this outfit on Thanksgiving, not because it was perfect for eating a lot of food, or particularly festive or anything. It was just something I hadn't worn together before. It never ceases to amaze me how I can come up with "new" combinations for old clothes. I don't really think of myself as having a large wardrobe (see my closet), but the truth is that I probably have more clothes than 90% of the world. Crazy to think about isn't it? Can you tell I'm feeling pretty thankful and blessed these days? Blame the holidays. They get me every time.

*I would never say ain't in a conversation, I just had to use it here. Please forgive me.

  1. Hey Ashley! I am loving your stripes and florals. I think I shy away from florals because my style is already soo girly, but I think I would really like it with some fun stripes to give it whimsy. Following you back!! ;)

  14. Love the stripes and floral together! It feels so fresh and happy compared to a lot of the darker colors I've been seeing in the blogging world (I'm completely guilty). Perhaps I should take a cue from you and try brightening my looks up a bit!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
