PROJECT SISTER ACT

Stripes are everywhere this year, have you got yours yet ?..........


When Sheela of Sheela's Blog got in touch to take part in Project Sister Act I was really surprised. Here is a woman in my point of view just "too cool for school " I have never been able to achieve that "cool look " and I always envy women that can carry it off. Sheela is also a fantastic writer, and I recommend you pop over for a read sometime.

To explain the project SWEET STRIPES
A blogger of different age groups Teens, 20, 30, 40 50's
Yep that's me the oldest one !  This post is to portray that whatever our age it's easy to wear an outfit of stripes. OK I may be old but I can wear stripes ! in fact I fell in love with these trousers because they made me look so much longer in the leg. So anyone else who  want's  their legs to look longer, go get yourself a pair of stripe trousers ! I bought these from FandF The link to buying them is at the bottom of the post, a bargain at £16.00

So let me introduce you to Sheela and the other lovely bloggers doing the Sister Act this week....


Meet Sheela of Sheela's Blog See what I mean, just to cool for school. I love this look and would never think of putting an outfit together like this. I envy ideas like this. Pop over to Sheela's blog for the link up for lot's of outfit inspo

So there you have five generations wearing stripes in all different styles. What would be your go to item? Would you buy trousers to lengthen those legs ?  choose an all in one piece like the dress? or wear them mixed up for an oh so cool look ? Wear them matching ? or a casual on trend look with jeans ?
Please let me know, I love to hear from you.
XO Laurie
