It’s nothing new that I love me some stripes, so when I first saw this Breton striped boatneck sweater on one of the mannequins at the Gap, I was immediately in love. I ducked into the store but for the life of me could not find it anywhere! After searching a few more locations, I ended up snagging it at the store on 42nd street, and got it for 40 percent off with a coupon! Score. Upon bringing it home, I immediately starting brainstorming how I was going to wear it. That’s when I saw my striped dress draped on the couch. Bingo! Stripes on stripes! What’s better than that?!
I am going out to dinner with one of my best friends for dinner tonight and think that I will wear this outfit since the weather has been cooperating lately. Happy Friday! Have a lovely weekend. xoxo
P.P. S. Here are some of my favorite bloggers that also loving Breton stripes, plus Jess shares a little history behind the beloved style.
