Every Body: Every Wear: Breton Stripe

So there's a really cool project going on in Fashionbloggington.  Every Body, Every Wear - one piece, as many ways to style as there are bloggers!  This month is Breton Stripes...For patternphobes like me, stripes are as crazy as I get, so I am going for it!

Hey, Martha, why so glum?  

It is not easy to look cute at 30 below, let me tell you!  And an outside picture?  Could have been deadly!  I am also pouting because Bill was supposed to be back from Alaska and he is still stuck on a God-and-US-military-forsaken Rock 1200 miles SW of Anchorage.  Oh, and I broke my kitchen sink.  

Check out what the warmer fashionistas are doing with their stripes!

Stripes, J Crew; chinos, J Crew; sweatershirt, Stella Stars via TJ Maxx; shoes, Adrienne Vittadini.


  1. I'd pout too. Hope Bill makes it home soon.

  2. 30 below?!?!? I don't think I would leave my bed or if I did I don't think I would be able to get dressed in less than 20 layers. But you did and you look cute!

  3. gross, so cold! and i thought my little smattering of snow was bad. saw your stripes over on every body, every wear and just wanted to stop by and say you look great!


  4. Thank you, ladies! The stripes challenge was the only thing betwixt me and a pair of pajamas to the office.

  5. Patternphobes? That's a great word!!!

  6. The fact you did it in the cold weather deserves bonus points. I'll pay you in...stripes. Looking good!

  7. ouch. 30 below? and to think I've been whining about the teens. i'll stop that now.
