I’m pretty much the queen of navy and white stripes. Striped dresses, sweaters, t-shirts – you name it, I’ve got it in triplicate. So, imagine my excitement when I heard about the new holiday that J. Crew just invented. National Stripes Day. Today is the first annual celebration, and let me tell you, I’m all about it. I’m traveling for work today, so I can’t go to a J. Crew store to celebrate in person, although that’s probably just as well. I’m trying really hard to slow it down with my shopping since I recently binged on casual spring dresses. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t join in the fun from afar! While I don’t mean to be an enabler and suck you into my addiction, you’ve got to check out all these adorable striped pieces.
For starters, these leggings are seriously the best workout pants. I wear them almost every weekend. They suck you in without being constricting and I get compliments on them every time I wear them, even when I’m just running to the grocery store!
I’ve worn this tunic sweater at least once a week since I got it. It’s really lightweight, which makes it a great transition piece for spring. And it has pockets!! What could be more perfect?
I just bought this maxi dress last week and I’m already obsessed. It’s so flattering and comfortable, which is not something I usually say about fitted maxi dresses. I can already tell it’s going to be my favorite dress of the season. It’s selling out fast, so snag it while you still can!
Finally, I think I may need to invest in this cute suit. I hate swimsuit shopping, but since summer is rapidly approaching, I should probably just bite the bullet. One-pieces can be a little matronly, but I think the bow on this one keeps it feeling fresh.
Let me know what striped pieces you’re coveting, and be sure to send me photos of your #NationalStripesDay celebrations!
