"Rayures Noires et Blanches"

black stripes + pink

Every time I wear black and white stripes, I envision myself looking like a jaunty Parisian (which is completely incorrect for many reasons) - though my friends and co-workers prefer to break it down more basically for me by referring to me in stripes as the Hamburglar or a French person of the mime variety. Sigh, thanks again, pals. How do you say "robble, robble" in French?

  1. I would absolutely not think Hamburglar if you walked by me in this outfit. It screams in-charge Parisian businesswoman. I love the necklace!

    1. Haha, aw thanks, girl! I think I'd probably have to throw in a pair of killer heels to make it WERK!

  2. So cute! So French! Not mime or Hamburglar, but I did laugh at that. ;) It's something I struggle with when it comes to the stripes though. I think it really helps that you have the stripes under a blazer, and it's not the focus of the entire top.

    1. I agree - I love love love stripes, but sometimes I have to check myself to make sure I'm not looking to costume-y, hehe.
