Stripes are also in for summer!!

Another trend that is bang on for summer is stripes-Harpers Bazaar show some stylish items that can really rock an outfit :-)

1st picture-Features Hoss Intropia, Joseph and Marc Jacobs

2nd picture-Jaeger, Anna Molinari and French Connection

I love the traditional navy blue and white stripes, but I was smitten when I found this last week in my local Sue Ryder charity shop-it is by H&M and bumble bee yellow and black stripes-ha ha!! I don't have a bandeau or striped dress, so thought this would be ideal to add to the summer dress collection :-)


And on Saturday just gone, as my darling husband knew I was having my R&R weekend (rest and relaxation!!) he brought me back this months Instyle magazine, which had a lovely freebie-an Elizabeth Hurley tote bag!! I love it, as it rocks the stripe trend-I've been using for work everyday since I got it!!

It is such a chic and sweet dress! I don't see yellow straps often, but it looks great, a bit unusal than the normal black and wite one! The shape looks very romantic and skinny tie-belt around the waist is so great! Dear, you look fabulous!

Cate said...

hi sharon! i'm totally in love with that hoss intropia shirt, i already saw it in OK!

i like your necklace! is it chanel?

and they sure give away amazing freebies with the magazines over there in the UK! here they don't give ANY freebies with the magazines, only with kids' magazines (and those freebies don't have much quality and usually aren't very pretty ;-))

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ruby may-thanks so much for your lovely comment and dropping by my blog!!

Hi times of glory-thats really lovely of you-thanks so much!!
