Earning your stripes ................

Hello Lovelies,

What a yukky day! Heavy rain and dark and grey - Well a coffee was much needed (I think that the Pumpkin Spiced Latte comes out today too at Starbucks - I have one every year - decide it is as horrid as ever and then do the same thing at the start of the next year - you have to have one to welcome in Autumn, even if it's nasty - it's the Starbucks rule!!)

So I went for a coffee and a manicure - it was incredible how wintery it felt
and contributed to me choosing this wintery glitter red colour

The London Mulberry Show for S/S 2014 featured lots of heavenly striped bags

Stripes gave a new dimension to the Bayswater and the Willow

 I am such a sucker for a Stripe - especially on a blazer. Nicole Richie totally rocked this Stella McCartney Striped Dress

I love how the stripes at the front are horizontal, and vertical at the back

Stella McCartney Bianca Vertical Stripe Dress £1425

and a less fussy design

Stella McCartney Rosy Stripe Flare Dress £1335

and how incredible did Jennifer Lawrence look! (Again in Stella McCartney)

Valerie Strapless Stripe Silk Jumpsuit - £1715

Luckily for us, the high street has bought out some fabulous stripes too!

uh oh - I NEED this coat!

Ovoid Striped Coat - ASOS £85

This cutie from Oasis Fashion looks quite formal

Stripe Coat - Oasis £72

But Laura Whitmore makes it look really cool - so it's a really versatile mid season look

Stripe Sheath Skirt - Zara £29.99

Do you adore a stripe too? And which is your favourite look

Thanks for reading xx
