what is the most versatile summer pattern hanging in my closet? well, to be truthful it’s my number one thing year round, and that is the ever so versatile stripe. horizontal or vertical, sweater or tee, skirt or dress, the essential stripe takes me to the office, to the beach, or to an antique show in style. this is the reason why i have more than one stripe at my beck and call. and guess what? it never goes out of style. never. if you are looking to add classic chic versatility to your wardrobe, consider adding a stripe. take it from me; it won’t let you down. why? after all these years, i’ve yet to meet a stripe i didn’t like. it has the styleatacertainage stamp of approval.

happy hump day!
