27 May 2011 - Stripe-a-palooza


  • Striped tank: Target
  • Striped cardigan: Target
  • Necklace: Tilly Bloom
  • Jeans: Old Navy Maternity
  • Flats: DSW

End Notes:

After days of warm weather, a band of thunderstorms and tornados swept through our area, leaving much cooler weather (and some hail, but thankfully no significant damage) in its wake. Since I wasn’t expecting this when I chose my list of 15 rotating garments, I made a game-day call, switching in my long striped cardigan. I actually think this could be a better choice anyway, since it adds some length to my otherwise cropped collection of top layers.

I always think of Tania, of What Would a Nerd Wear whenever I wear this red striped shirt. Actually, Tania, I think this could be a totally “you” outfit, if I had a big bun on top of my head (or if you had a bun in the oven). Oh, the punning!

In any case, it was a simple outfit for a quiet day of chapter writing. As I settle into a routine of writing consistently from home and continue to adjust to a changing body, I am growing to appreciate more sincerely the little touches of an outfit that can make me smile when I look up, bleary eyed, from a book. Stripes stretched across a bump makes me smile. A cat wearing a Victorian dress makes me smile. The fact that I’m pattern mixing when no one else — save all of you, I suppose — will see me, makes me smile.

I end with the words of the inimitable Jack Donaghy: “It’s called power clashing. And I do it because I can.”

  1. aw, i love this and i’m flattered to be thought of in conjunction with stripes of any kind (especially stripes on stripes…really you’re giving me a big head). for now, i think i’ll take bun-on-the-head versus bun-in-the-oven though i’m hugely admiring of the way you and S. charge on through both academic and personal milestones. it can’t be easy but you both make it look so do-able (and fun to boot).
    plus if i thought my someday-kids would turn out half as cute as baby/toddler e., i might get moving on making my bun move south.
    and now, this pun has gone too far.

    A very Tania outfit indeed!

    I was staring at your outfit thinking; oh my gosh, that is the cutest thing ever. Rolled up jeans, an adorable cardigan, flats, and a touch of red? Kind of perfect. Then I got to reading your post and started freaking out. Puns, and amazing Jack Donaghy quotes? Kind of amazing. Day made.
