Hidden Stripes

stripes

Right now I should be putting my shampoo in a suitcase. Rocky and I are heading out to Germany tonight and will be spending the holidays with his family there. But no, I’m here just wanting to wish you a Happy Friday!

Monica had met me yesterday afternoon for lunch, we had decided to take a tour of Little Italy, a neighborhood I’ve heard a lot about but never spent much time in. It’s so charming, with all the Italian food shops and restaurants, all the beautiful neon lights. Why don’t they do neon anymore? It’s so cool.

During the week I tend to put on the usual suspects, a comfortable top with a cardigan, scarf and denim leggings. For the eat, sleep, denim blog, I had bought a pair of J Brand Wax denim leggings that I just couldn’t part with. Over the last week, I must have worn them three times. Oh dear. But I’m finding with the jeans, getting some interesting tops isn’t the easiest thing in the world, so mixing it up with stripes and colors become so important. I’ve never had much luck with horizontal stripes, but the chevron print is perfect. It’s one of my favorite tops!

You are beautiful as always. The chevron is an under appreciated pattern and you showcase it well. I like how it breaks up the severe solid of the black just enough pattern without overpowering.

Bon voyage to Germany. Happy Holidays to you and yours! xo. -Bella Q

Oh, I just love this outfit with the boots and the French “Breathless” stripes. That is the wonderful thing about New York: all the distinct neighbourhoods waiting to be discovered!

I really liked that part of New York when I went over in June, although I only went past it and didn’t actually spend much time in it. Love your H&M leopard print hat :)

Your boots are killer! Love, love, love.

If you enjoyed Manhattan’s Little Italy, I highly suggest checking out Little Italy in the Bronx. The best cannolis in the city exist there! Now I’m homesick!

“Interesting tops to dress up jeans” is a lesson I’m taking to heart lately too. Have a great time in Germany, Jennine!
