Thrift Style Thursday - Show your Stripes

Told you all it was like fashion week on the blog!  Today is Thrift Style Thursday and this week's theme was chosen by Miche of Buttons and Birdcages - Show Your Stripes!  Stripes and I have a pretty good relationship, I own many, MANY striped things.  Today the challenge for me was not if I'd have something stripey to wear, but instead, what stripey thing should I wear?  I pulled out one of my newer thrifted goodies for today and decided to highlight that.

A few weeks ago when I showcased a recent thrift haul, I mentioned that this sweater was an accidental purchase, I had meant to leave it behind, but somehow still had it at checkout, so I just went with it.  In the end, I am so glad I did.  I have actually already worn this guy several times!  I added a striped cami that I adore - it's still a nursing cami and is probably one of the only ones I have left at this point, but I love the colors and it still fits, so I figure even if I don't need it for that purpose, might as well still wear it!  And then I also wore my favorite striped shoes - not thrifted, but they're just so darn fun I had to include them!

Dress - Cliche Mpls (from friend), Peach cami - Motherhood
Sweater - Mossimo (thrifted), Necklace - Camy Couture 
Shoes - DSW

I was going to include Ollie in my post today too, I also dressed him in stripes today, but he's such a flash these days that getting a picture proved a challenge this morning.  So you'll all just have to take my word for it that he's playing along too!

I really do enjoy stripes.  I still think my favorite pattern is plaid, but stripes are a close second for sure.  And I still have a soft spot for polka dots.  There was a song when I was a kid by a kids group called Parachute that was titled "Polka Dots, Checks and Stripes" - about a girl who wore all three at once.  I don't think I would do that, but I do love my patterns, that's for sure!

Make sure to check out the other Thrift Style Thursday gals and how they're showing off their stripes!
