It seems like I’ve been wearing stripes a lot more than usual these days. I do love a good print, but I’ve never really been one to go straight for stripes when shopping. Like many women, I had the silly idea that stripes made me look too big. Depending on the garment and the size of the stripes, this is true. However, this lightweight striped tunic does the opposite – it actually slims me. So there was no doubt that I had to purchase the top when I saw it at Nordstrom.
There’s actually a funny story about this tunic. I purchased my first tunic while vacationing in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hubby and I were shopping at the South Park Mall and of course, we had to stop in Nordstrom. I saw the item, tried it on and knew I had to have it. I was sold! I ended up wearing the garment out to dinner while still in Charlotte and unfortunately, it ripped. I was so irritated, especially since I’d purchased the last one in my size. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I was still thinking about the tunic. I finally found the tunic in my size online, ordered it, and all was well with the world.
I ended up styling this outfit for a casual day at work, and thanks to my sneakers from Kicks USA, the look was complete. I’m a huge fan of sneakers during the warm months, especially a stylish and comfy pair. These Nikes were the perfect touch for a work appropriate, casual Friday look.
So tell me, what do you think about styling stripes? Are you a fan? Let me know!
Until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
