I Gave In: Nautical Stripes, Thank You, J. Crew…

I too was part of the "avoid horizontal stripes at all costs" school. And when I started noticing all the girls around me sporting nautical striped tees, I figured it was one trend that would pass my closet by unnoticed.

I was wrong. Enter the J. Crew stripe sequin boatneck tee.

When I started to notice that people were pairing striped tees with the two things I love to wear right now- floral skirts and slightly distressed skinny jeans, not together, though- I decided I kind of needed to get involved.

So, while in J. Crew on Main Street in Westport yesterday, I scooped one up- along with a few pairs of shorts and other amazing things that I definitely did not need but somehow under the spell of Jenna Lyons decided I had to own.

This sequin version feels a bit more like me than the traditional navy and white. Planning to wear it to my friend Miryha's bbq today with my Citizens of Humanity denim capris, $15 Old Navy gold flip flops that I got last year and still love, and my new sunglasses which I will be telling you about soon enough- obsessed with 'em.

Happy July 4th, everyone!
