MY FAVOURITE SUMMER TREND: STRIPES


If you know me personally, you will know that I am a fan of stripes. From striped tee's to striped pants, striped dresses to striped jeans, and now to striped romper(s) - yes, plural - I'm almost at the point where I can't wear a lot of my clothes together for fear of looking like one big candy cane. 😂 Stripes are one of those patterns that I truly believe will never go out of style - but it is exciting and makes my stripe-lovin' heart very happy to see that they are EVERYWHERE for this upcoming summer season! Everywhere I turn I am seeing stripes, and I'm not complaining one bit.

Although it would appear that my wardrobe is well and truly at stripe capacity, apparently I am extremely lacking in any kind of self-control because when I saw this beautiful linen romper/playsuit in Glassons the other week it didn't take much to justify to myself all the reasons why it just had to come home with me and find a place amongst my summer wardrobe. Seriously though, how cute is it!? It's going to be an essential for our upcoming international trip.... I just know I'm gonna get so much wear out of it! 😍

On a complete side note, my Birkenstock's are an absolute MIRACLE. My sister found them for me at an opshop (thrift store) for $20 and I just about died of happiness! I've been wanting a pair of birk's for probably three summers now, but have never been able to convince myself to invest the $160+ to get myself a pair so have always kept an eye out for some of these bad boys whenever I'm on an opshop mission, but hadn't had any luck - shoes (in your size) are probably one of the hardest things to find secondhand I reckon! Although I do like my fair bit of shopping from time to time, I am a true bargain-hunter at heart and will always scope out my local opshops to see if I can find what I need before I head into town. I have just made a video about some of my favourite opshop/thrift store finds over on our YouTube channel, so make sure you pop over and watch that here! There's some goodies in there, trust me 😉
