a week of stripes. extreme.

 today it's all about extremes.
nowadays, it seems like anything goes, as long as you are comfortable wearing it. i've mixed stripes of different colors and sizes, and the mix i like best is one where the stripes are close in size and run in the same direction. this provides some uniformity and is easy on the eye.

are you comfortable mixing stripes?
if so, what's your mix?

cute earrings made by my neighbor.
had lunch with a friend at inferno's wood fire pizza. at her recommendation, i ordered the guava smoked pork pizza: guava smoked pork, fresh mozzarella, mushrooms, maui onions, and kilauea bbq sauce. normally i don't go for sweet, but the flavor wasn't overwhelming. it was pretty good.

try these combinations:

These colored stripes are cool together. I have only done neutral (black and grey). Great wide belt too!

I'm not a big print person but love stripes. The belt really breaks up the look so it doesn't appear too jailhouse ;) I love the color combination.

Very nice!! That belt is so nice and ties it all together well!

ah, I've said it before, and I will say it again- I love that skirt!!! I'm a bit scared of horizontal stripes as I've got some big ol' child bearing hips on me and they definitely do not need to be exaggerated further!!! vertical stripes though, now that's a winner! :)

I am loving the mixing of different stripes!! I don;t think I've ever tried to mix stripes together but it definitely works, the different colour or even different sizes of stripes makes the mix so good
