for the love of stripes

yesterday was my attempt at fashion post #2.
i read somewhere that you're not supposed to do fashion posts if you're not a fashion blog.
but who really makes the rules anyways?
it's too much fun pretending to be a model for an hour or so.
so i'm sure you've noticed that stripes have become very popular lately.
unfortuantely, i own very few striped items.
the one in this outfit was actually adopted from my mom's closet.
oops mom, i'm sorry, i know you hate it when i do that!
but really, what are daughters for?
(i'm pretty sure i pointed it out in the store anyways.)
so really, it's half mine! ;)

sweater: francesca's
shirt: downeast basics
leggings: downeast basics
boots: wild diva (
belt + accessories: forever21
sunglasses: coach

this was also my first attempt at red lipstick.
i think i like...

              something that i've learned from other blogs is to buy skinny belts and tie them around your waist.

i hope everyone has a fantastic week!
hopefully i will be able to find some free time to come back and post...
