Summer Stripes


Happy Monday, friends!  While my internal clock still thinks we are in Shanghai, we actually flew to St. Thomas this morning to squeeze in a little beach time with some friends before Aaron and I are back to work.  I see a lot of snoozing by the pool in my future!  As we get further into summer and closer to fall, I have been thinking a lot about trends that will translate between the seasons; trends that you can purchase now when they are on sale and still wear as we start to inch into September and October.  It’s a bit of an oxymoron, but stripes are both on trend and totally timeless.  Here are my favorite stripes for summer– and come fall– they pair perfectly with a great jacket, cozy sweater or knit tights.  Until then, though, these are the only stripes I’m going to be wearing this week!
