Candy Striper

I found this fantastic Alice + Olivia stripey shirt at Houndstooth Boutique a couple weeks ago, and fell in love with the candy colors. How could I not? They’re so bright and fun.

I also fell in love with the price tag – it was less than a quarter of the original price. Wahoo! It’s easy to dress up and down, and I plan to wear it long into the fall. It was a no brainer buy. No brainer buys make me oh so happy.

Fresh off a vacation, followed by my family reunion, it’s an easy throw on item – and very forgiving of my overindulgence the past week with its loose and flowing fit.

It’s clearly meant to be dressed up, but I didn’t really care. I threw it on with a pair of denim shorts and make it work anyway. To heck with fashion rule, right?

shirt – Houndstooth, shorts – Target, shoes – JCrew, bracelet – The Vintage Gypsy, handbag – Hobo International
