I may have purchased too many things with stripes today.

Yeah, I’m sorry to tell you, but that’s barely possible (too many stripes).
It’s even less likely with black & white/navy & white stripes.

Hayden – Good to know as I plan on keeping everything.

There is no such thing as too many stripes! Although you may not want to listen to me, my friends tell me I have a stripes problem. :)

But oh, I do live that photo.
I’m about to make black/white striped linen curtains for my bathroom with wide stripes of each color sewn together horizontally. I’m in a stripey way right now.

not possible! Can you post a picture of the whole thing so we can see what it is?

Agreed. No such thing as too many stripes. It’s like too much butter. It makes no sense in a sentence.

I have the shirt on the right! Love it. Hurray stripes! Makes me feel almost parisienne.

I think as long as you don’t wear them all at the same time you are fine!

I think I have the one on the far right, too. If it’s from h&m…

Jill – it’s three separate things from H&M, two t-shirts and one scarf. Nothing amazing, promise.

Um. Too many? How else can you pretend to be in France?

ha! the last five shirts i’ve bought the past three months are all striped as well. i thought i had a problem, but clearly i’m not alone. :) enjoy the stripes!

I have had shopping trips like that. It helps when I have to budget because then I’ll stop before going to check out and rethink each item and I look at each one and can clearly see that I selected 4 pale green shirts and put back two of those and keep 2 of the black ones….cause you can never have too much black right? :)

I also have the shirt on the right! I went through a stripe buying spree and bought that shirt and a striped sweater dress. Tried on every other striped item in the store too but narrowed it down to the top two.
