I don’t know why, but I’ve always been obsessed with the sea. Anchors, breton stripes, boat shoes, and even sailors (for some, it’s all about firefighters, and I’m all about sailors… I’ve always dreamed of a Ross and Rachel “Hellooooo Sailor !” scene… That’s said !). Yet, I’m seasick and I’m terribly affraid of open waters. But that doesn’t prevent me from mixing up my fascination for the sea with my great passion for fashion.
Actually, I’d say one of my biggest obsession in life is breton stripes, in all its shapes. And God knows there’s many. Long or short sleeves; thin or large stripes; stitch or cotton blend; as a top, a dress or a shirt; blue, red or even black… I think I have them all in an impressive collection, and if I think about it, I would say this is basically the only thing I wear, like all day every day !
Breton stripes just go with everything, it’s a piece to make a full outfit, you can wear it for every occasion. It’s MY vital basic, the piece I bring everywhere with me and that I could never let go of.
My latest acquisition is from Stradivarius, and I instantly thought I could wear it with my vintage sailor hat, while keeping a coherent and simple ensemble with boyfriend jeans and red sneakers that reminds the top’s colors, for a Modern Sailor outlook that’s always efficient 🙂
