Nautical, vertical, zig-zagged, horizontal or thicker than a stick of butter; however you slice it, bold stripes are a spring-DO. Navy and white stripes are classic, but throughout this spring I’ll feature all types.
This weekend after exploring Zurich on Saturday, we ventured into a wine-tasting event on a lake in Zug, Switzerland. Here’s a quick re-cap of a Sunday by the lake including nautical stripe style tips followed by some ‘real world’ reflections…
Bold Stripes for Spring 2013 ~ My nautical striped sweater is on the tame side of the fashion spectrum. Considered one of the most wearable trends this spring, try striped skirts, a head-to-toe striped jumpsuit or black and white like this outfit I just tweeted window shopping at Chanel.
Nautical Stripes for Her ~ I love accessorizing navy and white with gold. I just found this gold wicker clutch at H&M and then add any gold bracelets or a statement necklace.
Reflections by the Lake* ~ Have you heard of the new controversial book, ‘Lean In’, by Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg? It’s her take on women in the workplace, how they’re not assertive and make mistakes negotiating. *Coming Wednesday~Having just quit my full-time job in January, I’ll share big mistakes I made before packing up my cube, hitting ‘Shut-Down’ and venturing into the scary world of self-employment.
