Stripes, stripes, stripes

There are two constants in our wardrobe: monochrome and stripes. And now that Summer is here, stripes are our favourite because who doesn’t want to feel like Brigitte Bardot in the French Riviera (or a Venetian gondolier)?  These are a few striped pieces that you can find in our closet. Over the years, we’ve been putting together a striped section in our wardrobe with staples that go from working appropriate blazers to cute bikinis. The dress: this is an old time favourite of mine. Great for breakfasts overlooking the sea, afternoon ice cream runs or even Fridays at the office. This one is from Mango and it has a few years but you can find a similar one here and here (on sale!) The swimsuit: with a really flattering neckline, this swimsuit looks really cute with denim shorts. You won’t need anything else to go to the beach. Well, sunscreen and a magazine, but that’s about it. Find similar pieces here, here and here. The perfect striped tee: we talked about these tees a few …

We need this! Olive Clothing

We first read about this brand in Cristina’s blog. She used to wear a few Olive Clothing pieces in rotation and we love her style. Then we discovered the brand’s Instagram and we were sold. We basically love every outfit they post. Their simplicity is refreshing and they feature stripes in almost all of the looks. We know that this season high street brands are looking back to the 70’s for inspiration but that’s not our cup of tea. We want to stick to the simple classics that we love and Olive Clothing has some very nice pieces to offer. And most of them are navy. What’s not to love?

Michael Kors Jet Set Striped Travel Tote

I love love love this Michael Kors tote. It would be perfect for long Summer days with its vibrant citrus stripes, don’t you think? Actually I first saw it in navy and I really liked it but I find the citrus version more interesting. It would look perfect with a total denim look, jeans and a flower print tee, or a nice long white dress. It’s also perfect for travelling! I’m already thinking about the most appropriate destinations to take this lovely number for a ride… You can buy it here. And what about this tiny clutch? You can use it as a purse together with the tote or alone during long casual Summer nights! PS: now you can find us on twitter!!! @theslowpaceblog!!!Let’s hang out!
