Caught in the Act

First of all, thank you for all the wonderfully sweet comments on my post about my mother and my anniversary of moving home. Every single comment made me beam with pride for my mom. Thank you!

Now onto the clothes. Stripes are a classic that have been especially popular in the last few years, making it easy to find numerous striped pieces. But finding the perfectly sized stripes in the perfect color combination in the perfect fabric? Ugh. So. Hard. I don’t think this is my perfect striped sweater, but it comes pretty close. And since it’s so cute (and I’m so lazy), it got worn quite a bit this past week.


Exhibit A:


Monday afternoon, catching a little sun in the lovely warm weather. I wore another striped shirt under the sweater for contrast (and to cover my ass) and mixed things up a little more with this leopard print hat. I also posed like a frog.

See a familiar tail in the corner of this photo? It’s getting impossible to keep Chloe away from the camera!


Exhibit B:



Thursday for work. I added more stripes but stuck with the black and white theme. And again with Chloe! Clearly she wanted to show how well she matched my outfit.


Exhibit C:


Ok, this isn’t an outfit. But I suspected one of two felines were chomping on our houseplants. Bad Chloe!


Outfit 1
sweater- American Apparel
shirt- Topshop
leggings- American Apparel
boots- Steve Madden
hat- Target (sold out and bought via ebay)

Outfit 2
sweater- American Apparel
skirt- no name brand (but a similar skirt could be easily found at Forever21, I’ll bet)
boots- Report
necklace- H&M

    Ok. Everyone says Michelle and I look alike but I am begining to think we share a sartorial brain. I also own this hat, and this shirt. They’d pair well with our Rodarte sweater, no? GET OUT OF MY HEAD. Or, fine, pull up a chair and stay awhile…

    Stripes are the ultimate!!!  Of course you are pro-status when it comes to mixing them. So funny that the cam captured the tail end of the kitty…mischievous little one you have on your hands! ;)

    Chloe is such a diva – always trying to grab the spotlight! I loved that stripe outfit you wore to work when I saw you in it.

    Chloe clearly needs her own blog. Or we could start one for ‘Pets of Fashion Bloggers’ together. Imagine the guest posts?
