Sophie’s Style File: Matchstick cords and vintage stripes
Today is just an outfit post - a sneak peek into my closet and fashion habits.
Have I mentioned before that I love thrifting and really most things vintage? I love the hunt for new treasures. It makes me all excited and giddy on the inside. I love anything from vintage linens to industrial-style home decor items.
My husband usually rolls his eyes at me when, once again, I venture out and come home with bags and bags of stuff. It’s some sort of addiction I guess.
Once in a while, I will pick up an item of clothing like this red and white candy striped shirt. I just can’t part with it! You will find stripes all over my closet ... well, that is if you can find anything in my mess of a closet at all.
So there you have it for today, stripes on stripes and these awesome matchstick cords I got at JCrew for $3.50. Yes, I never thought I’d ever get a piece of clothing there for that cheap.
