five things friday - stripes!

I am such a huge fan of stripes, especially anything nautical inspired.

They never go out of style, and it is always good to have a few stripy items in your wardrobe for those days when you just can't decide what to wear!

As well as my endless collection of stripy t-shirts (you can never have enough in my opinion!) I am trying to branch out and purchase different stripe inspired outfits and accessories.

Here are my current five stripy things that I simply adore:

1) This dress from Vero Moda, which I spotted on the ASOS website for only £28

2) I fell in love with this maxi dress from Next, retailing at £35 - it would be perfect for a summer holiday!

3)  Another holiday inspired look, this time a bikini from Topshop for £26

4) This cute hat from John Lewis would make anyone feel like a glamorous film star from the 1950's

5)  Lastly, stripy bed set from John Lewis would make a lovely addition to my bedroom! 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!



  1. OH I love stripes too!! That maxi dress is beautiful.

  2. That orange, yellow and blue striped dress at the top is amazing! I have a bit of an obsession with stripes, too...when I'm shopping, I always end up buying yet ANOTHER striped shirt without even realizing what I'm doing haha.

    Left brain, right brain, pug brain.
