Gray + Pink Stripes

I’m a huge fan of stripes. They are such an easy way to add interest to any look. A striped shirt and jeans? Classic. A striped blazer with a bold top? Chic. A striped pencil skirt with a blouse? Perfect.

So when Marion announced this month’s trend challenge, I was super excited to see that she chose stripes! Stripes were hot last year, and they are back for 2013!

I found this gray and pink striped sweater at The Limited before Christmas. The ruching on the side is super flattering. It actually looks like I have a little curve! The Limited has several colors to choose from, so if you like the style, definitely check it out!



This striped sweater was perfect to throw on with leggings and leg warmers to lie around the house this weekend.

But I also wanted to dress it up a bit.


So I added the gray blazer and black skinnies for a more dressed up look.

P.S. Do you see the snow?? Woo hoo!

What is your favorite way to wear stripes?

Linking up with Marion at Marionberry Style today!

  11. Love the stripes, leggings, leg warmer combination. What a cute, fun and casual look. I love it.

  12. Love this sweater on you! I recognize this sweater before I saw your blog mentioning the store. I love The Limited, mainly for my professional wardrobe.

    • Thanks, Marie! I’m a big fan of The Limited as well. Their clothes just fit me really well and are always so classic. Do you have to wear suits to work? Their suits are always a good fit for me.

      • Yes, I like there outfits, modest and professional. I buy everything other than the suits. Although they’re very nice, I don’t need to wear suits to work anymore plus the price is over my budget:) I like your wardrobe a lot! Glad to know you are a The Limited fan too!
