i love the rustic, effortless feel of striped linen. i go through fazes of clothing- whereby pieces become uniform for weeks- sleep, eat, blog, all but shower in my chosen second skin. this month, it has been an oversized striped linen, cp shades ,knee length dress (some call moo moo- i believe it has an ever so subtle aline shape that saves it from that unrefined title.) has that paris flea feel, the one stripes on linen tend to emote. pillows, throws, table cloths, curtains, bed spread- whatevs always a good choice to blend into the mix.
