east vs west [coast] style. nautical stripes.

welcome to the second installment of east vs. west style. this week we are sharing our takes on one of my favorite trends, nautical stripes. stripes make up a good part of my wardrobe (i did a week of stripes to prove it!), but when it comes to nautical, i automatically think of navy, red, and white. while i didn't have navy and white (my shirt is b/w), i did have red...and i couldn't resist adding a dash of leopard.

don't forget to visit these awesome ladies. here's the crew:

Yes, I love stripes! You did my favorite combo of black and white with a pop of red.

I totally agreed my mind immediately goes to navy, red & white! & of course I didn't have navy just like you didn't so I opted for black & white instead!!
