It is just about time for some springtime stripes

21

Spring arrives just ten short days from now (and daylight saving time ends Sunday!), and I, for one, can not wait. I long to hide my puffer in the back of my closet (or, better yet, burn it), and reach for lighter layers like this gorgeous lilac striped sweater from Kule.

Such fun colorblock stripes on this excellent long-sleeved tee.

A really well-priced V-neck cashmere sweater that’s nice and lightweight.

I dig the marine blue on this tee, but it comes in several other good colors too.

Just a good, slouchy button-down for wearing whenever.

The orange really pops against the grey on this excellent fuzzy sweater.

This short sleeve button-down—in a really good, old-school green—looks like a prized vintage store find.

A good, bright, cheap tee that’d be great layered under a blazer.

This shirt jacket is all you need to endow an otherwise boring outfit with a little pop.

I love blue and black together always, so I’m definitely down for this striped colorblock button-down. It’s in my cart as I type.

The color combination here is unexpected, but it really works.

This light-on-light tee is the newest iteration of this GOACA bestselling one.

A cute and retroish ringer tee.

My mom gifted me with some fun Dusen Dusen towels recently, and now I want their matching bathrobe.

A smart little shrunken blazer for wearing with everything from flowy dresses to jeans.

The tonal stripes on this shirt are so far up my alley that I don’t know how I can be expected not to purchase it.

    I already own 3 of these tops (?!) which sadly means I shouldn’t order the lovely lilac sweater from Kule

    Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday. This is the joyous time of the year when we lose an hour of sleep that feels like a week.

    Oh man, that first Kule look is my JAM. Anyone know where to get those fantastic wide leg khakis? I’m going to email Kule too!

    Those wide leg khaki pants are from Chloe (Kule got back to me!).

    Love the stripes! And those wide legged pants at the top.

    (but Daylight Saving Time *begins* in March, we’re in Standard Time for the winter)

    I very much liked the fuzzy stripe sweater and the ringer tee. I also like the thick brown striped sweater and the striped blazer, and the plain striped Alex Mill one. I liked the zella too but my favorite colors didn’t come in my size. I will have to check back later!

    I need both the Alex mills tees….ok maybe need isn’t the right word.

    I’m not a big stripes fan but really like a ton of these – how do you do that?!?! Also, go for the bathrobe – I have the “warm stripe” version and LOVE it!

      The red and blue pallet is also delightfully crazy pants. I get too hot in terry cloth robes, but what a great gift idea!

    Faherty is a brand I’ve never seen before. Anyone have experience with their sizing? I’m inclined to order S, but need room for boobs which often takes me up to M.

    Huge fan of the stripe. Stripes are not bland. Love the Kule, the Zella and the weird color combo of the AllSaints. I have an embarrassing number of AYR stripped tees, but you have to cut out the blasted neck tags because they are soooooo painful! Also, great podcast this week. Excited y’all are doing another live event in April––those are so much fun!!

    THIS is the post I needed. Hope (and spring) springs eternal. The light on light stripe is perfect. (I am also dying at that table centerpiece in the header photo. WHUT is it? Someone put that together. It was a choice. I love it.)

      Agreed – it is a neat-o arrangement. Maybe they are net floats? I really liked the whole outfit – those oversized pants look great. The linked photo doesn’t say what they are. I could do a search for “giant khakis.” Unfortunately IRL I haven’t been able to work a wide leg pant yet.

        I asked the same question! I’ve asked Kule and will report back if they get back to me!

    Stripes! Love, especially thick striped – I’m forever looking for the perfect striped b&w tee. Thanks!

    I love the Reformation striped button down – but, alas, it’s sold out. I’m not sure how I feel about the color-blocked button down. There’s a similar one I’ve had my eye on from AYR and I haven’t pulled the trigger. Maybe I’m too anal retentive for stripes going in multiple directions/colorways!

    I love this round-up as stripes are one of the few prints I wear. I’m big-chested so don’t look good in crew-neck tops. I need a slightly lower neck line. Has anyone found any good scoop-neck (or lower boatneck) Bretons with three-quarter length sleeves?

    I’m wearing one of those Zella t-shirts right now! I have two and love them so much – it was an Xmas gift to both my mom and sister.

    That All Saints sweater is a masterful use of color. Love that. Thank you.
