Navy and White Stripes

Oh navy and white striped top
I wear one of you nonstop
So cute with skinnies,
flats or a mini
A bright scarf helps you to pop

Oh navy and white striped top
My love for you won’t stop
A couple are fine
But I’ve crossed the line
I shouldn’t be allowed to shop

    Awesome. I’m with you man, everything I’ve bought this spring, save for one top has stripes. :)

    Damn you! Five minutes ago I was trying to talk myself out of purchasing one on llbean.com. And now I want to buy 10. I want a labeled photo with sources so I know which ones I need. I’ve ordered several in the past and the fit has been not so cute so I currently own none and need at least one right now.

    Yay! Now I don’t feel half as bad about my own closet. And Sarah, look at Boden – super cute stripey tops!

    My fiancé loves to give me a hard time anytime I come home with a new navy and white striped top or sweater (just picked this one up the other day: http://bit.ly/fZeYd3. LOVE.) I just showed him your collection to prove that I’m not alone in this sickness. So, thank you.

    Haha! I love it! The thing is that I love each of those tops, too! I would probably own them, too!

    I am currently wearing the second from the left, but in yellow. My fiancée practically forbade me from buying any more navy and white stripes. I showed him. Yes I did. Shutup.

    I’m so glad it’s not just me. Everything I own is stripey. I have four navy and white striped tops and I thought *I* was bad enough…

    This new company has built their whole line around the stripped boatneck.

    We know just how much you love every single stripey shirt. It is like a match made in heaven with Whoorl written all over it! Each stripe shirt screams Sarah James! Love it. Love it. Love it.

    I am the same way…and navy and blue gingham. My fav. navy and white shirt is Boden. Scoop neck, soft fabric, just the right amount to stretch. Swoon.

    Love navy and white!

    I got this dress recently and can’t wait to wear it: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?searchCID=4016&cid=4016&vid=1&pid=862965&scid=862965002

    I also have an oversized Navy boatneck sweater with white stripes that I got at Harold’s a hundred years ago. Since they closed down in Norman (perhaps everywhere) I am hanging on to my Harold’s stuff!

    I love that you wrote a poem to your tops. I also love navy and white together.

    Totally in stripe love! I love your fashion sense, Whoorl…could you list where all of your stripey goodness came from?

    I have the same addiction. I most recently bought the Lands’ End striped shirt you had on your blog several weeks ago & love, love, love it. My only concern is everyone probably thinks I’m wearing the same shirt all the time!

    You had me at Navy and White Stripe.

    Guilty as charged. My closet is the same. With some grey and white strip mixed in too.
