Day 27: Stripes, How Do I Love Thee..

Deme Crinion2 Comments
If you have followed along this blog for any period of time, you probably can't help but notice my obsession with stripes.  There's the DIY pattern striped curtains in my office, the rugby inspired stripes in our boys' room, the stripes we added to plain lamp shades, and most recently, the ombre striped wall we rocked for our new breakfast nook.  

So, I'm sure it's no surprise that the stripes abound in my closet as well!
 In particular, I can't resist a grey and white combo.

This striped jersey number is the perfect transitional dress for fall...light-weight cotton, 3/4 length sleeves and great alone or as part of a team of layers.
And it's finally cool enough to wear my favorite fall boots!  

This Coach purse was my post-deployment splurge almost 9 years ago.  I bought something classic and with no signs of real wear, it just proves that it's worth paying for quality on select staple items.

 I'm daring to wear my hair in it's natural curly state more often.

And I have another accessory - can you see it?  The bruise under my eye from Jack clocking me with the corner of a book.  Good thing he's so cute ;)

The littles were off to the side just begging to get in the picture...

Mom, this is way too serious.

Now that's more like it :)

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
