I know I have a problem but I cannot be alone here? I am a stripes-addict. Vertical or horizontal, traditional navy or streaked with colour, stripes are undoubtedly my favourite pattern to wear.
SO who else is completely addicted to stripes? I realized looking through my wardrobe as I was pulling out clothes to pack that I have stripes in pretty much all categories of clothes; jackets (2 of those), dresses (2 of those but I only own 3 dresses!), jumpers, cardigans, trousers, shirts, vests and then the scary category of short and long sleeve t-shirts (almost too many to count). I just can't help myself.It’s undeniable and if you’ve met me you’ll have noticed, I tend to wear them everyday and everywhere. It's the humble breton shirt that's the gameshow highlight in my opinion. More than a wardrobe staple it's an essential. What started out life as a simple uniform for the French Navy seamen was adopted by CoCo Chanel and has been worn by likes of Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol. Long live the matelot.... Oh I wonder if I'll be able to get some different Breton tops on the Cote d'Azur next week? Send help please...... I need an intervention.
