experimenting with extremes. stripes 02.

this was me just playing around in my closet, and for some reason mini-she really liked this combination...so she photographed it. while i couldn't actually wear this to work, scroll down for some stripey goodness that i could.

holiday goodies are beginning to trickle into our office. although i've been eating salads for lunch this week, i tend to think that's justification to indulge in other things. i'm feeling sluggish and yucky. looking forward to the weekend for some much needed exercise. oh, and i just remembered that my nephew came home from college for christmas break today!

do your home or office treats taunt you during the holidays?
or do you have the will power to stay away?

holiday goodies at the office.
look how many are gone already! wasn't me.

Hahaha will power... what's that??? I have none. zilch. zero will power. If it's sweet or salty or greasy, it is usually screaming out my name and I just can't resist it. lol I'm feeling sluggish and yucky too. I had Burger King for lunch and pizza for dinner, so ummm, that's probably the reason. Now, I wish I had eaten salads and gone running!

I love the bright stripes and the black and white stripes together! You look gorgeous, as usual!!

Stunning! Stripes in b&w is a strong geometric pattern already, throwing in pink n grey is just pure fab. Love it!

Ohh yes stripes on stripes, I have so many in my closet and I just can't get enough.

I like the stripes on stripes combo too!!! Ugh, the holidays are horrible for me. I get super stressed and even though I work out, I try to justify it by indulging-- not good.

StyleIDnet said...

She has good taste, just like the mother! I love the outfit, its fun with out being crazy, totally fashionable. I feel just like you, I am spending hours, sitting down, studying and sneaking into the baskets that I am getting; a chocolate here, a cookie there .... anyway. I love the Asos tripp sweater.... I need to have it, its gorgeous.


Unknown said...

Cute combination! I totally justify that because I'm eating a salad, I have the right to stuff my face with cookie and cupcakes...
