Sunny with a Chance of Stripes

DSC_7450_2Apparently, my subconscious self is having a moment with stripes!  I know my last post consisted of jailbird stripes as well, but considering the stripes have migrated to my lower half AND varied in width, I deem them to be different. ;-)

This striped tube skirt is really versatile as I considered quite an array of colors to pair with it before ultimately settling on black.  However, to make sure I didn’t disappointment and to ensure this look is ‘blogworthy’, I cocooned myself in this yellow coat which altogether resembles a bumble bee!

Now, I use the word cocoon deliberately here as this coat effectively insulates via a process called enveloping!  The oversized cut envelopes, shields, and insulates so well!  Down to my fingertips, in fact, as the sleeve length is also exaggerated!  Apparently, the extra long sleeves are the latest trend to hit the runway at Calvin Klein’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week which just wrapped last week!

Hope you are still riding the high from Valentine’s weekend.  Have a great Monday!
