orsola 's thoughts:

This post is all about stripes and colour.
You remember I mentioned that I went a bit shopping last week. This striped dress – which is actually a long top – and the striped blazer are two of the new entries. When I saw the striped blazer on the Givenchy runway last season I fell in love because I love stripes a lot. Unfortunately I can’t afford the original one so this low cost version works great.
To add a personal touch I chose two warm colours which work fine with b&w stripes: yellow and orange, respectively for the layered blazer and the nail polish – I mixed myself – and lipstick.
I love the result. It’s casual but not boring, I think. I’ll wear it with shorts and high sandals in spring too.

Have a nice evening,
Orsola
