French Nautical: My Stripe Fetish


I haven't done an outfit post in a while...

This is what I wore to work yesterday-- fairly classic and simple. I was excited to receive my striped top yesterday from LL Bean [not a place I usually shop, mind you]. I have probably purchased 3 or 4 similar tops in the past two years alone, because I clearly have an obsession with French nautical stripes, and I am always on the lookout for the perfect one. I decided to buy this one because it is made of a thick-knit, high quality cotton [and also because I got chocolate on my favorite one...grrrrr]. Do you have a certain clothing item or accessory that you find yourself buying over and over again??
I have also been bringing out my Levi's light-wash denim jacket for a few weeks now -- thank goodness I kept it from...ahem...the early 90's.

More classic, striped perfection:

Ooo I love this outfit! Very A.P.C. The cut of your trousers is so unique- they look perfect for warm weather!

Oh love that little jacket. The nautical look is *always* a go-to for me.

Lovely outfit.

Give us the downlow on the LL Bean top -- how's the fit? Does it run a little big, a tad small? Inquiring minds want to know!

my special stash -- I wish it were APC! Thanks!!

ambika -- I know, it just never gets old.

la mode -- thanks so much, and thanks for visiting my blog!

lily -- it fits slightly loose, but not oversized, just comfortable. I bought a medium, and I typically wear an 8 [sometimes a 10]. It is definitely not "slouchy" though because of the material -- it is a thicker woven cotton. It is nice!

Thanks for the report on the llbean. I've got an Isaac Mizrahi for Target one that is going to have to be replaced soon.
