This is me on a casual day. Normally I avoid stripes because they can be difficult to pull off (they can add size to your frame), but when I saw this sweater I gave in and bought it. (Clearance rack at Macy’s for $17!) I added a pop of color with a green bag.
Adding a few small accessories, like classy earrings and a watch, make this look appropriate for work. I made sure to show off where my waist is by adding a clinched belt.

I used to avoid stripes, but I LOVE them right now! That sweater looks great on you and I love it paired with that green bag. Your nails are fabulous!
Thank you, Jenny! I am really getting into the nautical trend right now and stripes are unavoidable there.
I like the hints of green. & the striped sweater adds a lot to the outfit – you appear to have a really good figure so I don’t think stripes would make you look fat 🙂
haha, why thank you.
