three ways: breton stripes


Today I'd like to introduce you to Everybody, Everywhere, a new website by Linda and Liz. The idea is that different bloggers style a similar clothing item, post the look to their blogs, and post on Everybody Everywhere. Last month was gingham and today is Breton stripes. So check out the website if you're into stripes and want some more ideas for how to style them. Above I'm wearing a shirt I bought at Kookai in Paris last June. I like the twist on the traditional stripes with the lines printed to look like threads and the drawn on buttons.

And because I love striped tees so much, here are a couple more looks. The one on the left was from the Fall 30 for 30. Both tops are navy, sorry it's hard to see in the light. I'm committing to using my tripod more often so hopefully things are going to start looking a little better here on mission:closet. I'm also going to try to pose with my hand on my hip less frequently!


  1. Wow, you outdid yourself! The Kookai top? So cute. Too much.
    The second top? Sleek & sophisticated. The third? Love the stripes with your red skirt.

  2. Breton Stripes from actually France?! You are making us all look bad by comparison! Seriously though, I love that shirt. I liked the penciled in line look and those great little details. With that maxi skirt you look like you were snapped up in Paris!
