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.

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.

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

  • I love Christmas music. Our whole family does. In fact, we start playing it the day after Halloween, and we really don’t play much of anything else until the day after Christmas.
