Whenever I wear stripes with red and blue, I always think about the 4th of July or sailors. The 4th of July thing is kind of obvious, but I think the sailor thing might come from an early love of Popeye. Ha. Either way, red and blue with stripes always makes me thing about summer, which was just what I needed as the edges of hurricane Matthew started hitting us here in North Carolina today.
Although this particular stripe/ color combination is pretty summery, stripes can also be great as we transition into fall and a great foil to a cozy knit. Stay tuned for many more stripes to come this fall and winter! XO
